VIDEO: Pelosi demands Trump ‘not run’ for re-election; ‘do the country a favor’

[Ed. – Pelosi could do the country a bigger favor, but she would be aghast if someone suggested it to her.]

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi allowed Rolling Stone to use the U.S. Capitol for a photo shoot recently, and during video interviews with the magazine, Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Jahana Hayes used the moment to denounce President Trump.

Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez dismissed Trump, with the former demanding he not run for re-election, and the latter claiming she doesn’t want to give him more attention.

“If I had to say something to Trump, I probably wouldn’t say anything, because I don’t think that it’s worth the extra attention,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

Pelosi was more pointed in her response.

“Mr. President, do the country a favor, don’t run,” the House Speaker said.

Hayes struck a more conciliatory tone.
