On Friday night’s edition of NBC’s Late Night, host Jimmy Fallon interviewed House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on a variety of political issues, including whether she’s managed to see presumptive Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan without his shirt on.
Midway through the interview, Fallon asked Rep. Pelosi what she thinks of the Republican VP choice: “Now, how about Romney’s pick, Paul Ryan? What are your thoughts on him?”
“He’s a nice person,” Pelosi said to laughter from the audience who likely assumed her response was passive-aggressive. “I don’t really know him well because I’ve never been to the gym,” she continued, and the laughter picked up again.
“Have you seen him with his shirt off?” Fallon asked in return.
“Oh, please,” Rep. Pelosi muttered.
“It’s pretty awesome,” Fallon continued. “The guy is ripped.”
“It takes time,” the California congresswoman replied.
“It does. The P90X is very tough,” agreed Fallon. “I got the DVDs. I made it to the first part. Then I just put on Finding Nemo,” he joked.
