Watch: Nancy Pelosi Stumbles Off Podium At Memorial For Harry Reid

Nancy Pelosi stumbled as she left the stage after speaking at a memorial for the late Senator Harry Reid, only regaining her balance after grabbing hold of the podium.

Nancy Pelosi stumbled as she left the stage after speaking at a memorial for the late Senator Harry Reid, only regaining her balance after grabbing hold of the podium.

The House Speaker spoke at Reid’s funeral this past weekend.

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stumbled off the presidential podium during Harry Reid’s funeral service in Las Vegas on Saturday, nearly taking a header in front of the mourners,” EAG News reports.

Video of her departing after her comments shows Pelosi struggling to keep her footing as she steps away from the podium.

Even in such a somber setting, she couldn’t help but tell a lie.

“Few could rival Harry’s understanding of his senators, their states, their needs, their ambitions, and in all of our conversations I never heard Harry say an unkind word about any of his Senate colleagues, Democratic or Republican,” she claimed.

Reid famously smeared colleague and then-presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012 as having not paid any taxes over the previous ten years.

Reid never apologized for the lie and even defended spreading it saying, “Romney didn’t win, did he?”

Reid also called former President Donald Trump “a racist.”

Barack Obama, who spoke later at Reid’s funeral and benefitted from Reid’s lie, was skeptical of Pelosi’s claim that Reid never said a bad word about anybody.

“I heard Nancy Pelosi say she never heard Harry say anything bad about any of his colleagues. I don’t know about that Nancy,” he said to laughter in the room.

Pelosi posted a video of her eulogy and conveniently cut out the part where she stumbled away from the podium.

Look, it’s hard to pile on Pelosi for stumbling away from the podium when there’s so much material provided by the House Speaker that actually warrants discussion.

She clearly stepped away forgetting that there was a step down to the actual stage. We’ve all been there before, forgetting that step or thinking we’ve reached the last one only to have to recover in spectacular fashion.

Hell, I’ll give her credit for righting the ship without going down at the age of 81.

That said, had Trump done this there would have been 24/7 coverage of health concerns.

While Pelosi’s stumble is a common one, perhaps less common are the walking dead prance before being thrown in the back of a van like a slab of meat by Hillary Clinton.

Also fairly rare, the trip up the stairs three consecutive times by President Joe Biden.

Former President Donald Trump’s gentle walk down a ramp at West Point in June 2020 spawned multiple media reports about his health.

There won’t be much media coverage of Pelosi’s near-fall from the podium.

Media, however, are not consistent when it comes to covering such slip-ups.

On the same day they critiqued the way Trump walked down a ramp he claims was slippery, CNN also told viewers about “the awkward way Trump sipped water from a glass,” saying it too raised questions about his health.
