Nancy Pelosi Denies Muting Obama
And if you can't believe Nancy Pelosi, who can you believe?
In his new book, The Price of Politics, Bob Woodward writes that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sometimes hit the mute button when President Barack Obama would start giving “uplifting speeches” during conference calls. Pelosi denied the claim, saying that, during those calls, she always cleared the room, listened and took notes.
Woodward said that during Obama’s impromptu speeches, “Pelosi put Obama on mute so that she and [Harry] Reid could work without Obama knowing they had stopped listening.”
“Well, that didn’t happen,” Pelosi said at a POLITICO Playbook breakfast today.
