Fireworks erupted on the House floor Friday when Nancy Pelosi lost her mind reacted angrily to comments made by Rep. Tom Marino (R-Pa.) about the crisis on the border. How angrily, you ask? Pelosi raced across the floor, in violation of House etiquette, wagging her finger at Marino.

On Monday, Rep. Marino hooked up with Fox and Friends to explain his take on the situation:

“She came over and started calling me 'a liar, a liar.' And that's when I said, 'no, I do my homework, I did my research, these are the facts; you might want to try that once in awhile.'”

So what was it that set the former-Speaker's hair on fire?

“Under the leadership of the former speaker … when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed, they didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”

Marino said that in addition to being called a liar, Pelosi also called him “an insignificant person.” His “insignificant” comments that set her off:

Regardless of who's “royalty” in Congress and who's “insignificant,” isn't it a little out of line for a member of the House of Representatives to be called a liar by another member, on the floor no less? As Rep. Marino said, maybe Nancy Pelosi should do a bit of research before she makes a fool of herself next time.
