Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stumbled through a series of questions regarding Texas Congressman Beto O’Rourke this week; fumbling while trying to list a single accomplishment brought about by the potential presidential candidate.
“Beto O’Rourke announced today that he is running for president. What in your view was Beto O’Rourke’s signature accomplishment as a member of the House?” asked one reporter during her weekly press conference.
Nancy Pelosi was asked what Beto's "signature accomplishment" was in Congress.
She couldn't name anything specific.

“Beto brought vitality to Congress…when he came, he came as a real champion for the environment,” Pelosi fumbled. “He got a great deal of support from the environmental community in his district, he won a primary on that subject.”
“Also… he was a member of the Armed Services Committee, a strong member of the Armed Services Committee, which is very important for his district,” she added. “In preserving our planet and protecting our people, they’re at least two areas in addition to his vitality in so many different ways.”
