I don’t know where Peter Schiff got this old footage, but it’s kind of interesting. Nancy Pelosi, known for her positions in favor of raising the minimum wage (which only raises unemployment and hopelessness, but lefties don’t care), refuses to answer an interviewer’s tough-but-fair questions about why she pays her own entry-level staff below the minimum wage, or even nothing at all:
Schiff gets around to Pelosi at 11:10, and takes her apart clip-by-clip. Such answer as she gives the original interviewer is a variation of the classic, “It’s OK When I Do It, Because I’m In Congress” – mixed in with a pretty strained appeal to religion.
But the interviewer doesn’t give up. The last clip shows Pelosi telling her staff to “call the guard” to throw him out. Haughty yet anxious; what a mix.
If anyone knows the original interviewer’s name, please post it in the comments.
UPDATE: It’s Jan Helfeld. (Thanks Juan!)
