Pelosi: ‘Civilization as We Know It Would Be in Jeopardy’ if GOP Wins Senate

During her appearance on Real Time Friday night, Nancy Pelosi spoke with Bill Maher about the GOP’s very real chances to take the Senate in this year’s midterm elections. And Maher wanted to know exactly what would change if they did, since Washington is so deeply gridlocked already.

Pelosi said, “It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate. Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if Republicans win the Senate.”

That last sentence Pelosi appeared to be half-joking about, but she was dead serious about Democrats needing to win in November. She explained, “It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate. Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if Republicans win the Senate.”
