House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was like a mother hen to America’s mayors on Wednesday, telling them when to clap for her.
After thanking a member of her audience, she said, “That’s an applause line! I’ll let you know.”
She followed through on her promise.
After claiming Democrats support “strong border security initiatives,” she said, “Do you want to— let’s hear it for border security!” as she held her hand up to call for a response.
Moments later, she called for applause from the bipartisan group for the Democrat majority in the House.
