Nancy Pelosi Will Not Receive Apology From Tom Marino: ‘She Was Entirely Out Of Line’

Nancy Pelosi Chases Republican

Before the House passed a bill that would issue $694 million to the border, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi became upset over some comments made by Republican Congressman Tom Marino. Pelosi got so mad that she actually began chasing him across the floor.

According to a report from ABC News, Marino addressed the issue saying that there is no “law and order.”

“My colleagues on the other side don’t want to do anything about it,” he said.

The Republican congressman added that when Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats had the House, Senate, and White House in 2009 and 2010, they were aware of the border problem but did nothing about it.

“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,” he said.

That’s when former Speaker Nancy Pelosi approached the Republican congressman and challenged his comments off-mic. Marino, who was mic’d, told Pelosi that he “did the research on it,” and everything he said “is true.” He then told Pelosi that she should do some researching on the issue, too.

“You might want to try it,” he said. “You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”

Marino took one more jab at Nancy Pelosi in his final remark.

“With that, I urge my colleagues to vote for this legislation because, apparently, I hit the right nerve,” he concluded.

That’s when an upset Nancy Pelosi crossed the chamber again and began pointing her finger at the Republican congressman. The argument continued as the two went up a Republican aisle. GOP lawmakers assembled in a concerned hurry. One GOP member alerted the chair that the House was not in order as an attempt to get Pelosi and Marino to stop fighting.

Nancy Pelosi then halted her argument and returned to the Democratic side of the chamber. As soon as everything was in order, the bill for the supplemental border fund was approved with a vote of 223-189.

Evangeline George, a spokeswoman for Nancy Pelosi, issued a brief statement following the debacle:

“Leader Pelosi just wanted to remind the Congressman that House Democrats had the courage to pass the DREAM Act – and have the courage to stand up for what the American people want: bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform.”

George then added that Nancy Pelosi “accepted” an apology from Marino. But, according to Marino’s chief of staff, Bill Tighe, the Republican congressman did not apologize to Pelosi and has no intentions on doing so, since “he has nothing to apologize for.”

“She was entirely out of line in approaching him while he was recognized and delivering remarks on the Floor,” Tighe wrote in an email.

Marino then took to Twitter to explain his side on what happened between him and Nancy Pelosi.

Even though the bill passed the House, CNN reports that it’s unlikely the bill will pass the Democratic-led Senate. Majority Leader Harry Reid said he “can’t imagine” this bill going through.

“I don’t think it’s going to get done,” Reid said.

In a related report from The Inquisitr, Nancy Pelosi referred the child immigrants to “baby Moses” and “baby Jesus.” In one statement, Pelosi cited the conference of bishops’ statement about Jesus being a “refugee from violence.”

“Let us not turn away these children and send them back into a burning building,” Pelosi said. “That’s the bishops. So, we have to do this in a way that honors our values, but also protects our border and does so in a way that the American people understand more clearly.”

Nancy Pelosi later asked: “What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the Pharoh’s family?”

“We would not have the Ten Commandments, for starters,” Pelosi added. “You understand my point. Historically, we have a challenge and we have examples of humanitarian assistance that should guide us.”

Do you think Nancy Pelosi was out of line?

    Is there a Demorat that will tell the truth? Marino would no more apologize to this cow, than Pelosi would fly coach. She is a truly evil individual.

  2. Richard Gentry

    Of course she was out of line. This incident reminds me of an email I got yesterday. It announced that scientists have discovered a new element. It is the densest element ever discovered. It has been named PELOSIUM and its symbol is PU. Nancy Pelosi is the woman who earlier this week said that she had been informed by Qutar (Hamas' main backer) that Hamas is a humanitarian organization. This from the woman who lives in and represents the country which has designated Hamas a TERRORIST organization. How much more dense and stupid can one person be?

  3. Robert Little

    There are a very few time that it is within bounds hitting a woman. I hope someday she tries that with someone who won't take that kind of crap from anyone. Someone should knock her teeth out. Maybe we can get Ronda Rousey to do it!! How this nation can stoop so low as to elect that POS to anything goes to show you haw stupid the voting public is. Even the Democrats are ashamed of her lack of intelligence.

    I'm amazed the American people keep electing the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Kudos to Representative Tom Marino for calling out the Democrats duplicity and linguistic legerdermain as they try to put a heroic cast on their bumbling efforts to solve problems they ( purposely ) created for their own political and financial benefit. I was once a looyal Democrat foot soldier, organizer and candidate, but I cured myself of that malediction decades ago and I am currently a candidate for Governor in Minnesota's August 12th Republican Primary. As an independent Republican I proudly carry the endorsement of the Veterans' Party of America and the Veterans Party Of Minnesota and have been highly critical of the treatment our service people have received from the Veterans Administration under direction of the Obama White House for the last 6 years. Keep up the good work, Tom Marino….Minnesota is a border state and our people strongly support a controlled perimeter and proper national security for all of America….We deeply appreciate your effort.

    This is the same stupid B*tch that thinks Hamas is a Humanitarian organization…its a wonder she was able to cross the isle by herself and find her way back to the Democratic side……who cares what she thinks…Way to go Marino, finally someone found some balls….

    It's brains not testicles that elude the republican effort to bury the US in a heap of prejudice and ignorance. What amazes me is the short memory that fails to inform your gleeful antics that pine for a return to the republican stewardshjp which brought the country to its knees around the world and at home under George W. Bush and his republican congress. What's the matter with you? Do you want to go broke? Do you want Americans dying overseas for no strategically important, or worse, counter productive, international adventurism? Republicans can't govern! They don't know enough about the way the world works. All they know is how to make not too clever ad-hominum cracks about liberals, people who are at least trying to improve the lot of the American people.

The offensives have been the same, there just different players…….S.O.S….different day !.

    wpgoldsmith How exactly are the libs "trying to improve the lot of American people?" You mean Obamacare (doubling the cost of insurance), invasion by ILLEGALS (with Obama wanting to hand out work permits like candy & throwing MY money at them), ignoring vets (you know, those who make it possible for you to spout lib nonsense). The only ones libs are trying to improve at this point are ILLEGALS.

    The fact that she called him an "insignificant person" tells me all I need to hear. She's condescending and disrespectful, not to mention has no common sense and finds it no problem to lie. I think she may actually convince herself that she knows what she's talking about and is telling the truth.

  21. Ted Stallone

    Pelosi lies everytime she opens her mouth. Her big objection was the probable media attention this would get for Marion telling the truth about Democrat hypocrisy. Look at the lies Sheila JAckson Lee just told. The pathetic thing is they can't even keep the lies straight, they tell so many. She's up there lying not even remembering that her last actions prove her current lies. All Democrats should be removed from Congress for a few years and let the country heal for a few years.

    Mary Ann, you are hilarious. And also very good at repeating silly Fox News talking points. ObamaCare did not double the cost of insurance, the insurance companies doubled the cost of insurance. Last time I checked, under ObamaCare, the insurance companies still operate in a for-profit, capitalistic, free-market system, maybe if you don't like the cost of something in our free market system, maybe you should take that up with the people setting the prices, in this case, the insurance companies. And the children coming across the border are not "invaders", they're refugees from murder, rape and gang induction. Careful, your Christianity is showing on that one. And Obama never, even for one moment, "ignored" the vets. You should really turn off Fox News, read several different news sources and learn to think for yourself. Maybe then you wouldn't sound like an uninformed, Fox News-trained seal who the GOP is gladly playing like a two dollar banjo.

    He says Pelosi called him an “insignificant person” on the “Floor of the House.” This is clearly far better than being called a “boneless wonder.”

    "I remember when I was a child, being taken to the celebrated Barnum's Circus, which contained an exhibition of freaks and monstrosities, but the exhibit on the program which I most desired to see was the one described as 'The Boneless Wonder.' My parents judged that the spectacle would be too demoralizing and revolting for my youthful eye, and I have waited 50 years to see The Boneless Wonder sitting on the Treasury Bench." –Winston Churchill, January 28, 1931, in the House of Commons, referring to Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald (and First Lord of the Treasury)

  54. Arkansas Fourth

    The GOP has been absolutely brilliant at turning Nancy Pelosi into a villain at which all their uninformed minions can hiss. Before Pelosi became Speaker of the House, all these people who claim to think she's the daughter of Satan had never even heard of her. But then she became one of the most successful Speakers in Congressional history, passing a health care reform bill which every President since Teddy Roosevelt and tried to pass but failed. She then passed several pieces of legislation which, among other things, stopped credit card companies from screwing us, which gave women a chance to make equal pay with men, and she stopped the GOP from privatizing Social Security, which if they had been successful, SS would have gone bankrupt in the crash of 2008. In other words, the GOP couldn't beat her incredible record of accomplishment, and they certainly couldn't come up with any legislation of their own, so the only way to defeat her was to villainize her. And suddenly, every Republican in town started pronouncing Pelosi's name with an actual sneer. It was like bad high school theater, but it worked. But of course, the only way you can make someone who's been so successful seem so ugly to your crowd is if your crowd is completely ignorant, uninformed and knows nothing about politics, current events, history and anything having to do with the workings of the U.S. Congress. It was a brilliant plan, and it worked, evidenced by the ridiculous comments here today by so many. But the fact remains that Pelosi's record of accomplishment as Speaker was impressive, while Boehner's records has been a dismal and complete failure. So maybe before you're tempted to climb onto the clown wagon and call Pelosi names, maybe you should grow a pair of balls and seriously ask yourself what Boehner has accomplished. It's easy for the last place team in the league to catcall the championship team, but for some strange reason, why is it we never see the catcallers win a game?

    wpgoldsmith WTH??? Who is making the country go broke? Let's give some specifics about Dems being tax and spend, shall we?

    When Senator Barack Hussein Obama was running for president, he and other Dems assailed then President Bush, and Republicans, for excessive spending: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyLmru6no4U

    Obama later (January, 2009) promised to cut spending, as well as cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaQUU2ZL6D8

    FACTS: Bush added $5 TRILLION in new debt, over EIGHT years as president, while AVERAGING $450 BILLION a year in deficit spending (that is BILLION, and NOT TRILLION). Bear in mind that Bush was running TWO overseas wars at the time. By the way: Dems in Congress joined Republicans in authorizing these wars.

    FACTS: Since Obama became president, he has added nearly $8 TRILLION in new debt, and AVERAGED over $1.2 TRILLION a year in deficit spending (that is TRILLIONS, NOT BILLIONS). Of course Barack Obama has been in office little more than FIVE-AND-ONE-HALF years, and is NOT running two overseas wars. And in case you didn't notice, Obama DOUBLED deficit spending, on AVERAGE, rather than cutting it by one-half (even Obama's current year deficit spending of $530 BILLION exceeds the of G.W. Bush's AVERAGE deficit spending).

    FACT: And Obama got his tax increase on the affluent in January of 2013: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/02/us/politics/senate-tax-deal-fiscal-cliff.html?pagewanted%253Dall&_r=0 NOTE: This is a lib NY Times article.

    Question: where is the money wpgoldsmith? Answer: a LIB SPENDING SPREE (that makes Republicans look like rank beginners).

    I provided irrefutable video proof to you, showing that Obama is a liar when it comes to the debt and deficit. Seeing is believing, isn't it? This is no different than Obama promising "If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. The average American family will realize an annual $2500 savings with Obama Care" – again, ALL lies. Am I Right? Of course I am!
