Everyone needs a laugh once in a while. If you haven’t had one today, this story might just give you one.

There’s no doubt that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has treated us to a lot of laughs over the years with some of the crazy things she’s said. She’s almost rivaling Joe Biden for things that come out of her mouth that should never have left her brain to begin with. She’s definitely has a frequent coherence issue, as well as an overinflated opinion of herself and her power.

Pelosi definitely sparked reaction with her remarks in a new USA Today interview.

In the interview, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked about the riot at the Capitol on Jan. 6. She said that if the rioters had tried to harm her, they would have had a challenge on their hands.

“Well, I’m pretty tough. I’m a street fighter,” Pelosi told USA Today. “They would have had a battle on their hands.”

She joked that she always had her stilettos to use as a weapon, should she need them. “I would have had these,” she said, displaying her feet. That conjures up some kind of visual. She later said that she was never personally afraid because she had so much security.

People had a little fun with her claim, posting all kinds of images of the House Speaker in response, with references to the famous arcade game, “Street Fighter.”

She didn’t appear to fare very well against vociferous leftists, demanding extreme immigration moves.

Some did point out that the 81-year-old Pelosi did have a little trouble getting up off the floor when virtue-signaling at the Capitol; so truthfully, it might be a bit of a challenge. Some thought she was stretching the claim just a bit.

Somehow not really seeing her for “Street Fighter 6.”
