Well, now, this is just getting embarrassing!

Looks like we can add Nancy Pelosi to the growing list of congressional Democrats suffering from Russian amb-nesia:

More from Politico:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Friday that she’s never met with the current Russian ambassador, Sergey Kislyak.

“Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” Pelosi told POLITICO’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer during a Playbook interview, when asked if she’d ever met with the Russian envoy.

But a file photo from Pelosi’s 2010 meeting with Russian President Dmitriy Medvedev shows Kislyak at the table across from Pelosi — then House speaker — and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.). Medvedev had been in the country for a meeting with President Barack Obama a day earlier and stopped in on Capitol Hill to meet with congressional leaders as well.

It’s right here in the photo, Nancy!


It’s not that Nancy doesn’t remember him … she just didn’t understand the question:

Asked to square Pelosi’s comments with the photo of the meeting, a spokesman said that Pelosi had simply meant she never had a solo meeting with Kislyak.


That’s fair, of course. But can we also at least agree that Nancy Pelosi is awful and deserves to be mocked and/or shamed at every possible opportunity?




D’OH! Claire McCaskill’s attempt to prove rarity of meetings with Russian ambassador backfires hilariously
