What is “not much,” Alex.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) sure does think highly of O’Rourke and all his accomplishment while he served in the Texas Congress…if only she knew what that accomplishment was.

While talking to reporters, she was asked by NBC News’ Kasie Hunt what O’Rourke’s “signature accomplishment” is, and had trouble thinking up just one to list.

“Beto O’Rourke announced today that he is running for president. What in your view was Beto O’Rourke’s signature accomplishment as a member of the House?” asked Hunt.

Pelosi went on a rambling response.

“Beto brought vitality to Congress…when he came, he came as a real champion for the environment,” Pelosi responded. “He got a great deal of support from the environmental community in his district, he won a primary on that subject.”

“And, also, he was a member of the Armed Services Committee, a strong member of the Armed Services Committee, which is very important for his district,” Pelosi responded. “In preserving our planet and protecting our people, they’re at least two areas in addition to his vitality in so many different ways.”

I can help her here.

O’Rourke’s largest accomplishment is using eminent domain against the poor in El Paso in order to use the land to create development projects that he and his father in law profited from.

He’s also proved that walls work, despite his apparent use of barriers to separate himself from the peasantry who come to see him.

He’s also been directly responsible for, or inspired, some of the cringiest videos I’ve ever seen grace the world wide web.

Pelosi may feel free to use these examples the next time she’s asked this question.
