Quote of the Day: It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia!

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has given indications previously that she’s not merely hyper-partisan but coming apart at the seams. Examples of both shortcomings abound. Her partisan silliness was on full display last week when she blamed GOP candidate Greg Gianforte’s body slamming a reporter on Donald Trump’s example (which opinion she perhaps gleaned from the Thursday edition of “Morning Joe”).

Examples of her mental lapses are in even greater evidence. In a brief speech in April to Refugees International, the 77-year-old veteran congresswoman garbled words and mispronounced the names of countries.

But on Thursday, both weaknesses were on vivid display in a single press briefing in which she criticized the order in which President Trump visited nations on his trip abroad. In the video that follows, she carps:

I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia!

It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia!

Our friends and neighbors. What was the decision-making process to go to Saudi Arabia first? That is a question that I have.

I don’t doubt that this question is on her mind — or what is left of it. A question that might be asked by an impartial observer is why?
