‘Waste of time’: Pelosi cuts media conference short
The Speaker of the US House of Representatives, Democrat Nancy Pelosi, abruptly ended her weekly media conference today after labelling a reporter’s question “a waste of time”.
Ms Pelosi faced questions on a range of subjects, from the impeachment trial of Donald Trump to the House’s looming vote to remove Republicans Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene from her committee assignments.
About 20 minutes in, she lost patience.
“As far as the impeachment trial is concerned, Senator (Lindsey) Graham said that if the Democrats call any witness, that the Republicans will be prepared to call in the FBI and ‘tell us about people who planned this attack’ and what happened with the security footprint at the Capitol. What’s your response to that?” a reporter asked.
