The media asks Republicans tough questions all the time.

But Democrats are not used to this level of grilling from the media.

Well…

Nancy Pelosi was not having it.

She got angry and began yelling at Wolf Blitzer!

Pelosi even accused Blitzer and CNN of being GOP "apologists."

Um…

She does realize that 90% of the news media appears to protect the Democrat party, right?!

The funny thing is that CNN has a reputation of being tough towards President Trump.

This is why so many people chant "CNN sucks!" at Trump rallies.

Yet...

Nancy had the audicity to claim that CNN is protecting conservatives!

SF Gate has more details on Pelosi's heated CNN interview:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed out at CNN host Wolf Blitzer and called him an "apologist" for "the Republican position" during a Tuesday interview that went off the rails quickly.

Blitzer pressed Pelosi on negotiations over a potential new stimulus deal in the wake of President Donald Trump seemingly reversing his position and backing an additional aid package. Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have yet to come to terms on the framework for a new deal, and Blitzer displayed a tweet from Rep. Ro Khanna, a South Bay Democrat, who urged Pelosi to strike a deal with the Trump administration instead of waiting for a potential Biden victory in November.

"He said, 'People in need can't wait until February, $1.8 trillion is significant and more than twice the Obama stimulus. Make a deal, put the ball in McConnell court,'" Blitzer quoted. "So what do you say to Ro Khanna?"

"What I say to you is, I don't know why you're always an apologist," Pelosi replied. "And many of your colleagues, apologists for the Republican position. Ro Khanna, that's nice. That isn't what we're going to do and nobody's waiting 'til February. I want this very much now."

After Pelosi stated that she wanted Republicans to agree to her $2.2 trillion proposal, Blitzer responded, "$1.8 trillion... why let the perfect be the enemy of the good?"

"Well, I will not let the wrong be the enemy of the right," the House Speaker replied.

"What's wrong with $1.8 trillion?" asked Blitzer.

"You know what, do you have any idea between the spending they have in their bill and we have in our bill?" she snapped. "Do you realize they have come back and said all things for child tax credits and earned income tax credits and helping people who have lost their jobs are eliminated in their bill?"

The two repeatedly talked over each other for a while before the conversation settled down.

The Democrats and the media have a history of being cozy with each other.

So it's surprising to see a high profile Democrat lashing out at the media.

Now Nancy Pelosi knows what it feels like to be a Republican.

The difference?

Republicans face actual challenges from the press.

Every. Day.

This appears to be one of the first times Pelosi has been openly challenged on TV.

Fox News has more details:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., accused CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer Tuesday of being "an apologist ... for the Republican position" during a stunning interview in which she grew visibly frustrated with "The Situation Room" anchor's questions.

The fireworks began when Blitzer asked Pelosi why she "won't accept the president's latest [coronavirus] stimulus offer."

"I hope you'll ask the same question of the Republicans on why they don't want to meet the needs of the American people," Pelosi responded. "But let me say to those people because all of my colleagues -- we represent these people ... and their needs are not addressed in the president's proposal. So when you say to me, 'Why don't you accept theirs?' Why don't they accept ours?"

Blitzer interjected, telling Pelosi that Americans "really need the money now" and quoted Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., who recently said, "People in need can't wait until February. $1.8 trillion is significant & more than twice the Obama stimulus ... Make a deal & put the ball in McConnell court."

"So what do you say to Ro Khanna?" Blitzer asked.

"What I say to you is I don't know why you're always an apologist -- and many of your colleagues [are] apologists for the Republican position," Pelosi fired back, adding "Ro Khanna, that's nice, that isn't what we're going to do and nobody's waiting til February."

The contentious exchange continued when Blitzer pressed Pelosi again about Trump's $1.8 trillion proposal, asking her, "why not work out a deal with him and don't let the perfect, as they say here in Washington, be the enemy of the good?"

[...]

Blitzer responded, "It's not about me, it's about millions of Americans who can't put food on the table, who can't pay the rent, and who are having trouble getting by."

"And we represent them, we represent them," Pelosi repeated several times over Blitzer.

"As we say, don't let perfect be the enemy of the good," Blitzer reiterated.

"It is nowhere near perfect ... we're not even close to the good," Pelosi shot back. "Thank you for your sensitivity to our constituents' needs."

"I am sensitive to them because I see them on the street begging for food, begging for money," the anchor said.

"Have you fed them?" Pelosi blurted out. "We feed them, we feed them."

Pelosi's statements underscore far-left philosophy.

They want the government to take care of and coddle the people.

Conservatives, on the other hand, want government to get out of the way and allow people to live their lives.
