White House counselor Kellyanne Conway let Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) have it, saying that the California Democrat seems like she has lost control of her “temper” as well as the Democratic caucus she leads.
While giving an interview with “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning, Conway was asked to “explain the pickle” that Pelosi is in regarding the increasing impeachment calls from the more progressive wing of the Democratic Party.
Conway said that Pelosi is “under enormous pressure” from her party to go through with impeachment and that it “doesn’t seem” like the House speaker has “control over her temper” when it came to President Donald Trump, pointing to the “incendiary” remarks made by Pelosi last week while the president was on a state visit.
Pelosi reportedly had said to senior Democrats last week that she would like to see the president “in prison.”

“A complete disgrace, and then has the audacity at Normandy — sitting steps away from us — to say, ‘Oh, well, I don’t talk about the president when I’m in a foreign country, that’s my principle,'” Conway said. “But she had talked about the president while he was in a foreign country on a state visit.
“She doesn’t have control over her temper when it comes to the president,” the counselor added. “And she doesn’t have control over her caucus.”
Conway pointed out that the “31 Democrats” representing parts of the country won by Trump in the 2016 election “have a very different view about what should be going on” than Pelosi.
The counselor’s comments came a week after the House speaker said she would like to see the president “in prison.”
As IJR Red previously reported, Trump fired back at Pelosi for the comments, blasting her as a “nasty, vindictive, horrible person” who is “incapable of doing deals” during an interview while abroad in France.
