Pelosi: Republicans ‘Will Misrepresent Anything’ You Say

Wednesday at the Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington, D.C., House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, in regard to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s comparison of border detention centers to concentration camps, that Republicans “will misrepresent anything that you say.”

“I’m not up to date on her most recent one, I saw something in the news but I — no, I haven’t spoken to her about that,” Pelosi said.

“I do have some comments to make to my caucus writ large about the political nature of how politically charged the atmosphere is, so understand that while the Republicans have no interest in holding the president accountable for his words, they will misrepresent anything that you say, just if you have one word in the sentence that they can exploit.”
