Vice President-elect Mike Pence headed up to Capitol Hill on Thursday to chat with House minority leader Nancy Pelosi. It appeared to go about as smoothly as you might expect — which is to say, not at all.
Check out the exchange at the 1:06 mark below, in which Pelosi addressed Pence directly in totally awkward fashion.
“Thank you Mr. Vice President for the opportunity to share some thoughts of my caucus, not just my own thoughts, but of my caucus with the Vice-President…Vice President-elect…Mike!” Pelosi said, through nervous laughter.
“Even better,” Pence said, smiling.
Pelosi took the opportunity to throw just a bit of shade at President-elect Donald Trump while stating that she believes Pence is going to play a kew role in the new administraion.
“Youre going to be a very valuable player in all of this,” she said to Pence. “Because you know the territory and I know — with no disrespect for the sensitivity and knowledge of the President-elect — you know the territory.”
