Well isn’t this interesting?

New footage from an upcoming documentary has just revealed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said some VERY racist things about white men to then-President Barack Obama after Democrats got destroying in the 2010 midterm elections.

According to Fox News, Speaker Pelosi called Obama and said that angry white men who recently lost their jobs were the result of a failed midterm election.

Hey, Mr. President, not a good night,” Pelosi told Obama during a phone call on Nov. 2, 2010 according to newly released footage from HBO Max.

Pelosi also told Obama on the phone call that Democrats should consider this midterms loss as a total “wipeout”.

“Our members have said they don’t regret their health care bill right across the board. Even if we never passed health care reform, we were still going to lose this election because of 9.5% unemployment. ‘Cause it wasn’t about that, it was about jobs,” Pelosi told Obama.

Pelosi then says, “The White male thing is just – that’s a dominant thing. When they don’t have a job, they get in a mood. And, um, so we’ll have to make some decisions in our caucus about how we go forward.” 

The phone call to Obama came as results started emerging from the 2010 midterms where Democrats got absolutely demolished by the red wave.
