It’s about time for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to call it quits.
Pelosi who is currently 81 years old, was given the opportunity to give a speech at former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s memorial.
Just as Pelosi was finishing her speech, the 81-year-old lawmaker walked off the podium and almost completely lost her balance.

Besides almost falling on stage, it’s been rumored that Pelosi is set to retire.
The New York Post had more on the story:
With Republicans favored to regain the House in November’s midterm elections, talk on Capitol Hill has turned to the future of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her leadership team.
Rumors have swirled for weeks that Pelosi, who turns 82 in March, will leave Congress at the end of this term — especially if Democrats receive the walloping forecast by most polls.
GOP lawmakers and operatives insist that President Biden’s plummeting approval ratings, announcements by at least 24 Democratic lawmakers that they will not seek reelection, and historical precedent that the party controlling the White House often loses congressional seats in midterms augurs that a “red wave” is coming this fall.
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) has made hay of the whispers, repeatedly referring to Pelosi as a “lame duck Speaker” on social media and during press conferences.
The Democratic party is aging quickly, hopefully, the Republican party can capitalize on it.
