Alexandra Pelosi, the daughter of Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., was hesitant to discuss her mother Wednesday on CNN’s New Day with Alison Camerota and John Berman. But when she did, she was very candid.
Berman asked Alexandra how her mother approaches meetings with President Trump and how she feels about the Democratic politician becoming Speaker of the House for a second time.
“She’ll cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding. That’s all you need to know about her,” Alexandra said. “No one ever won betting against Nancy Pelosi. She’s persevered. You’ve got to give her credit. No matter what you think of her, you have to give her credit. Think about all those presidents she’s endured, right? The Bushes, the Clintons. She’s been through it all.”
Alexandra, a political reporter and documentary filmmaker, said it’s her mother’s experience through the decades that will help her during the current government shutdown and negotiations with Trump.
“She’s been around. This is not her first rodeo, as your friend George Bush would say. She knows what she’s doing,” Alexandra said. “And that should make you sleep at night, knowing that at least somebody in this town knows what they’re doing.”
She continued to reflect on her mother’s tenure and what the future holds. “When Nancy Pelosi came to town, it was a boys club. That was 30 years ago, a boys club,” Alexandra said. “Look around tomorrow. It will be a whole new America. You are going to see something so magical that you have not seen before.”
New Day airs weekdays at 6 a.m. on CNN.
