A wonderful scene played out on the floor of the House on Friday night – Representative Tom Marino (R-PA) gave a speech that got Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) so angry that she literally ran across the House building to accost him!
Watch the speech and notice Pelosi angrily confront Rep. Marino – which is completely “Not Cool” in our legislative format. After all, this isn’t Great Britain folks!
“We don’t have law and order,” Marino said during debate on the border bill. “My colleagues on the other side don’t want to do anything about it. …Under the leadership of the former Speaker…they knew this problem existed. They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
This comment set Pelosi off and she sprinted across the floor to yell at Marino.
“Yes it is true,” Marino said after Pelosi challenged him. “I did the research on it. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”
Here’s what Rep. Marino said after the confrontation.
