Pelosi Under Fire For Mind-Boggling Comments

Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's dismissive, racially charged comment about the group of five bipartisan lawmakers tasked with working on an immigration bill was met with a strong rebuke from a member of her own party.

"The five white guys I call them, you know," Pelosi said in reference to the immigration team at her weekly press conference Thursday. "Are they going to open a hamburger stand next or what?" she quipped.

"The very idea that this week they’re saying, 'Oh why don’t we get four white guys and General Kelly to come and do this,'" she continued, arguing that the lack of Hispanic members would only delay the process.

Pelosi's comments about the immigration team, which is in part trying to enshrine elements of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, earned the ire of her fellow Democrat, House Whip Steny Hoyer — one of those "five white guys" she disparaged.
