In an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on his show The Situation Room, Blitzer asked the speaker, "How much credit do you give the President of the United States for these peace agreements?"
"Well, hopefully they won't—hopefully they will beneficial [sic] to the region," Pelosi said.
Oops, did she misspeak, or did she just catch herself saying she hopes they "won't" be a benefit to the region? I mean, we wouldn't want Trump to get any credit for doing anything good, now would we?
Anyway, she goes on:
"We've been waiting for a very long time for the president's proposal for an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement that honored the two state solution. It was coming in two weeks, it was coming in two months, it was coming in six months—it still hasn't come in any way that has brought peace."
And the zinger:
"So, good for him for having a distraction on a day when the numbers of people who are affected and the numbers of people who are dying from this virus only increases."
A distraction! Peace in the Middle East — a distraction!
Man, I guess this president will do anything to keep us from thinking about Covid.
