Nancy Pelosi pays a visit to Ellen, calls booing of gay soldier at GOP debate ‘unthinkable’
From THE HILL: House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday it was “unthinkable” for a mostly-Republican audience to “jeer a person who’s serving the country.”
Pelosi was responding to the boos that followed a video of a gay soldier asking the Republican presidential candidates whether they would reverse the “progress made on ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’” at the most recent GOP debate in Florida.
Pelosi also expressed dismay that the Republican presidential hopefuls on stage did not address the crowd’s response.
“None of the people who would be serving as commander in chief [called] a halt [to the booing],” she noted to daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
