Nancy Pelosi Will Be On Your Show Never, Bill O'Reilly, Does Never Work For You?
Here is Nancy Pelosi dismissing a reporter from the Bill O'Reilly Television Zoo Crew, like a boss.
“Bill O’Reilly has a quick question for you,” the reporter, who had camera filming his inquiry, began. “He ran into you at the Kennedy Center Honors recently and he said you said you would do an interview with him, in fact he said you would do an interview in your office.”
Egad! And why didn't you drop everything to talk to Mr. Personality, Madame Minority Leader? What are you hiding?
We're kind of proud of our Nancy here. Hey, I got a call from Greta, she was able to schedule it, it's done, that's my time in Fox News Hell for this year. Too bad, so sad. There, that ought to get rid of the little turd...
But the O’Reilly surrogate wasn’t done.
“We know you’re a woman of your word,” he said, talking over Pelosi. “We’ve been calling your office and they’ve said you’ve been busy in February, March, April , June ...
“I’m wondering, I know you’re a woman of your word, and I’m asking if you’re going to be honoring your commitment.”
Well, no, mister O'Reilly flunky, Nancy is not going to let you question her integrity, actually, and who is it that you say you work for anyway?
“Well, I didn’t make any commitment to him, we were having a social conversation. In fact, it was at the White House, the first time I ever saw him because I never see him on TV,” Pelosi said, drawing laughter from the press corps. “But then Greta came along and I’ve known her for a very long time, so I did Greta. And so you know, we go from one outlet to the next.”
Translation: You're done. If Bill O'Reilly doesn't know that "Yeah, sure, I'll go on your show some time" actually means "I would rather eat glass than talk to you," that's his lookout. He's probably still steaming over all those women who never called him, even though he gave them his number. Oh, but the reporter kept trying. “But your husband was there, next to you, when you said you would do the show.” You said! You said! Where's my pony? You said I could have a pony!
“One of these days, it’s open ended. One of these days maybe I will. I was not pleased with the disrespect that he showed to the president, so that wasn’t a warmer upper."
And then the Reillybot wanted to know what was so disrespectful about the interview, because what politician wouldn't look forward to the chance to be interrupted 42 times?
Nancy was finished, though, and really, the point wasn't to get her to agree to an interview, the point was to get her on tape being asked why she was hiding from Billo. Sorry, mac, she talked to Greta. But keep hoping.
