House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Has shown herself to be a “slimeball politician” in her attacks on the character of the White House coronavirus response coordinator, Dr. Deborah Birx, said the Fox News Radio host Guy Benson on “The Guy Benson Show”.
“Shouldn’t we listen to experts and scientists like Dr Birx?” Benson asked at the show opening on Monday. “Nancy Pelosi is a slimeball politician… Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House, is a bad person. It’s nasty work.
GOWDY CALLS PELOSI TO EXCUSE BIRX
Benson noted that there had been criticism of Birx and that she was following White House Coronavirus Task Force member Dr Anthony Fauci throughout the pandemic. However, he claimed, no one in the media has come to Birx’s defense after Pelosi called her “worst” in a closed-door meeting last week and then publicly told the over the weekend she had lost confidence in the doctor.
« [Dr. Birx] is accredited. She’s smart as hell. She is caring. She’s trying to deal with a lot of tough political landmines, ”Benson said. “And she does it, I think, very well and does it, I would say, elegantly on this path. And Pelosi comes in and throws himself on her. And she doesn’t deny it.

“So it’s a guilt by Pelosi’s association response,” Benson added. “She takes a very personal and ugly photo of Birx and then backs it up by saying, ‘Well, yeah, that’s guilt by association with Trump.’ No excuses… I thought we were all about the power of girls and women supporting women. And this is Dr Birx, a very impressive professional woman, and Nancy Pelosi feels like she wasn’t part of the resistance. And therefore, let’s just aim for his character.
According to Benson, Pelosi feels encouraged to make such outrageous statements, as she is rarely rebuffed except from the conservative media.

“’I’m just going to say whatever I want about whoever I want and I don’t have to apologize or think twice,” he said, mimicking Pelosi’s internal monologue. “‘And I’m going to get away with it because the level of control and media panic, the ripping and tearing of the clothes and all of that is performative and one-sided.’ And so she sees it and she takes advantage of it. And it’s really disgusting. He’s a bad person. ”
