House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that the U.S. Capitol rioters would have had problems if they had caught her, boasting “I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter.”
Responding to a question of what she’d do and if she believed they wanted to kill her, Pelosi replied “that’s what they were setting out to do.”
USA Today asked if it frightened her and she replied “well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter. They would have had a battle on their hands.”
Then she lifted up her foot to show her heels and said “I would have had these.”
“I was never personally afraid because I had so much security for myself,” Pelosi also said “I was afraid for everybody else, and I’ll never forgive them the trauma that they caused to the staff and the members.”
“I do think it will have an impact on how people decide to come to work here or stay to work here,” she added.
