A recently resurfaced clip from November, 2021 shows Nancy Pelosi stumbling through a press conference nearly as badly as President Biden does. But it’s not just Nancy. In fact, this is the OLDEST group of politicians Washington D.C. has EVER seen, Glenn says. And even if politicians like Joe and Pelosi are too old to understand what’s going on or too old to communicate their thoughts eloquently, they still won’t leave. Why? Because they’re addicted to power, corruption, and money. That’s why it’s up to us to vote them out and SEND THEM HOME. It’s time we SHAME them into retirement, Glenn says.
Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors
GLENN: Speaking of that -- do we happen to have the Nancy Pelosi monologue that she tried to explain, the inflation bill?
PAT: Oh, so good.
STU: From November of 2021. It's incredible.
GLENN: Oh, is it November? I thought it was from this bill. I just want you to listen, and try to tell me, what she's talking about. When she's discussing a bill that is in negotiation and passing.
NANCY: We're sending stuff over to the Senate. Well, most of the product -- now, we may have that in the last day or so. And some of what we added is Senate, to the bill. Like a hearing. For -- excuse me. Bernie loves hearing mention -- just hearing the bill. So some have -- and then we had the family medical -- we figured, they're putting things in, then we can put something in. Even if Manchin doesn't like it. So -- so we're getting some...
PAT: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
NANCY: Bird and privilege.
PAT: Bird and --
NANCY: I think most of them are getting scrum. Because privilege scrum is deadliest to a bill. Bird won't -- what's important, you have to take it out. But privilege, by relation, can take you out.
NANCY: So we're, again, getting that as we go along as well. But when they pass the bill, they will see it in its aggregate and make some --
VOICE: Any of this is messaging because they have to take some of those things off, regardless of what you sent over. You said, they weren't going to send a messaging bill.
VOICE: No, no. When I send a messaging bill -- but we'll make sure what we send is not birdable or birdbath, or privilege scrum.
PAT: Or privilege scrum.
NANCY: Exercises. In case...
GLENN: Could we just play the 10-year-old again from the BBC?
VOICE: I think it will -- people will be regarding more statistics than us as actual people.
GLENN: Wow. Now, either Nancy Pelosi is drinking, which has always been the rumor. She's either hammered. It's Nancy. It's hammer time.
She's either drinking or she is losing it. And I'm not sure -- I'm not sure which -- which it is, honestly. These guys, that are in Congress. This is the oldest Congress. The oldest representation, that we've ever had. There's never been a group of people, at this age.
GLENN: Serving in Washington, DC. The age of the administration. The age of Congress. The age of Senate. Go home.
GLENN: Go home.
PAT: There's not --
GLENN: You know, it's incredible to me.
PAT: There's got to be a rule, right? There's got to be an age limit. Not only do I agree with term limits. But I really think there should be an age limit. Because so many of these people, are startings to be significantly compromised. Nancy Pelosi is one of them. Joe Biden obviously is another. You've got two of the three most powerful people in the world, who are seriously compromised right now, and we're not doing anything about it.
GLENN: Well, I will tell you, that, you know, the average life span was in its 30s, when we wrote the Constitution. That was -- I mean, Ben Franklin was probably double the age of the average -- the average American.
GLENN: And how old was he when he died, 70?
PAT: I think late 70s.
GLENN: Okay. Late 70s. I remember my grandfather's era. You know, people. When they started Social Security. It's because the average age, a man died, was 61. So they made it at 65, so most people would not get Social Security. Buts at least you would have it, in case you're an outlier. Well, now people are living until 80 or 90 years old. And some people are great. You know, we both know a heart surgeon, that is no longer practicing heart surgery, but, you know, he's running a global organization. And the guy is 90 -- Pat, 91, 94? And he is --
PAT: Uh-huh. Even older than that, I think.
GLENN: And he's sharper than I am. He's sharper than I am. So I hate to say, you have an age limit. But you should have common sense and decency, and your family should have common decency. We all know when our -- when our parents and grandparents are just not as strong as they used to be. And we certainly know, when they're just incapable of doing things. These people, if they had to drive themselves, I would bet you, a lot of the people in Congress, that are of her age, would have their keys taken away from them. But they don't drive anymore.
PAT: Yep. Looks like Franklin was 84 when he died.
GLENN: And he was at the constitutional convention.
GLENN: He was still brokering deals. He was in a great deal of pain at the time. But he wouldn't take morphine, because he said -- or opium, he said, because it would addle your brain. And he wanted to remain sharp.
STU: Is one of the things you're talking about with the age thing. A bigger issue with just the size and scope of government. Because in theory, voters are -- the reason why Nancy Pelosi is in our lives, is because the representatives of some blue district keep voting her in. They have the opportunity to keep someone younger and more coherent. They just choose not to.
GLENN: Correct. Correct.
STU: Which is not necessarily, I don't think against what the Founders, wanted. Right? They didn't care if individual districts made business address decisions. I mean, they wanted them to make good decisions. But if an individual district selects as their representative, someone who the rest of the country doesn't like. That's in theory, fine. The problem is, these people wind up running our lives. If they didn't have all this power, when they got to Washington, this wouldn't be a problem. It becomes a problem for everyone, because Nancy Pelosi has so much of an effect on her day-to-day lives. And she is obviously either drunk or incoherent all the time.
PAT: And they thought that the -- that the election process would preclude lifetime terms for these people. I don't think they envisioned somebody being elected, you know, 30 times in Congress. I mean, come on. Been there for 60 years.
GLENN: No. Because it was such a pain in the ass. That's why they put Washington where it is. It was a swamp. It was mosquito ridden. It was at a time, when you could get malaria from mosquitoes. So they knew that nobody wanted to go. And it wasn't a full-time job. You had other full-time jobs. So you were like, let's get the business done. I have to go back to work. So they would only meet for a couple of months every year. So it wasn't the way it is now. Also, I go back to America the Beautiful. One of my favorite lines is more than self, their country loved.
Joe Biden does not care. He is building a Biden empire. And a Biden cash machine. And I really don't think he loves the country more than himself. And that is the case with a lot of these people. And they've -- they may look at you, and say, how dare you say that. But they've convinced themselves, that that is true. And they've said, well, if I'm not doing it, who would. We've got to change the country. We've got to do this. But they're enriching themselves. This is so corrupt. Nancy Pelosi is so corrupt. Joe Biden is so corrupt. You really think they care about you, and your community? If you're struggling? I.e. the -- the new bill that just was passed to reduce inflation, that was going to do going to do anything, but. And it's a tax that begins at 30,000. So you're making $30,000 a year. Next year, your taxes are going up. Is that more than self, their country loved?
Nancy Pelosi announcing she's going to Taiwan. When we don't do that. You can go to Taiwan. But you don't, in her position announce it weeks ahead. You say, I'm going on an Asian tour. And then quietly you go. And then when you're done, you announce it as you're leaving. That's the way we always do it. But she doesn't love the country, as much as she loves herself. Or she was drunk. Or she's just incompetent. Which one is the best? These people should be shamed into retirement. Shame on you, for being -- you're not clear enough. I know if I'm not clear enough, I would never come on the air, because it would be irresponsible of me. They don't seem to care about it. The question is, why? And then the real important question is, what are you going to do about it? Are you going to continue to vote for -- I don't care if it's for Republican, independent. I don't care if it's the guy I absolutely love. If Mike Lee, for instance, is starting to slip, I would say be the first one to say, you know, Mike. I don't want to lose this seat. But you've got to go. You've got to let somebody else that understands at least today's world and is thinking about that. Is not just thinking about trying to make it through a speech.
