Gayle King questions Nancy Pelosi's 'insulting' and 'egregious' nickname for Trump allies

Gayle King challenged Nancy Pelosi for calling President Trump’s supporters “henchmen,” suggesting that the “egregious” language was hypocritical.

On Friday, the speaker of the House appeared as a guest on CBS This Morning with King to discuss Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Sept. 18 from complications of metastatic pancreatic cancer, and President Trump’s possible replacements (on Saturday, Trump nominated Amy Coney Barrett to fill the seat).

Calling the nomination of any replacement “completely inappropriate” in light of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s objection to then-President Barack Obama replacing the late Justice Antonin Scalia in 2016, the women pivoted to the Nov. 3 election.

When King asked Pelosi about her August comments that Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden shouldn’t debate Trump because he would “belittle what the debates are supposed to be about” (the first debate takes place Tuesday in Ohio), Pelosi’s answer remained the same.

“I just think that the President has no fidelity to fact or truth, and actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States,” she told King. “He and his henchmen are a danger with their comments, are a danger to our democracy. I didn’t want to give him, you know, why bother — you know, he doesn’t tell the truth. He isn’t committed to our Constitution, but Joe Biden is right —”

King interjected, “But Speaker Pelosi, that’s what people say is the problem. Your language to some is just as egregious as what they’re saying by calling the president’s people ‘henchmen.’ Some could say that’s just as insulting as what he’s saying about you.”

“Well, I don’t care what he says about me,” said Pelosi. “Every knock from him is a boost for me. If he wants to help me raise money, he can keep knocking me. But I’m speaking truth.”

In a Sept. 20 interview, Pelosi used the term “henchmen” after Trump repeatedly suggested that he might not accept the results of the election, due to the notion of voter fraud associated with mail-in ballots, despite the FBI seeing no evidence of such efforts. (This week White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said, “The president will accept the results of a free and fair election.”)

The Friday interview made King trend on Twitter — one camp said that “henchmen” was a tame descriptor given the weighty issues at stake in November, another that King was doing her job as an interviewer. And some felt the exchange was harmless on both sides.

Why doesn't Gayle say the same thing to Trump?

Oh, I know why. Because he won't even do an interview with her.

Nancy should do the same thing.

FUCK GAYLE KING! "Fair and balanced" bullshit.

Gayle King is incredibly boring. She has no presence on screen, no spark. If not for her connection to Oprah, I doubt she'd even be doing local news somewhere.

by Anonymousreply 609/26/2020

She really takes herself way too seriously. Pelosi should have just said "Whatever girlfriend. I'll speak to Oprah about this myself."

Some of you same bitches here supported Gayle King earlier this year when she dared to question the late Kobe Bryant's reputation, while the rest of the world canonized him without a second thought. People just flip flop like the wind. She is just doing her fucking job like she has done for eons. If she wasn't a black woman and Oprah's best friend, no one would give a shit about this.

I'm tired of journalists attacking liberals for speaking the plain truth - but allowing conservatives to lie and attack repeatedly without any fact checking.

This was all to make Gayle look 'objective' - but she's picking apart language and not talking about the true issues here.

Disgusting. And I like Gayle. But c'mon.

by Anonymousreply 3609/27/2020

Oprah had Trump on her show several times. To talk about leadership and how to get ahead in life. Her audience asked him questions. She adored him. They were "friends."

Oprah having a famous friend is not too far off from Lindsey and his obsessive adoration of powerful people. With Oprah its wealthy, powerful or famous people. Like a moth to the flame. If she thinks a friendship is involved, she loses all objectivity.

R28, You're vying for DL "Comic of the Year," no?

You DO know that Trump has called Democrats, some by name, "traitors" and "enemies of the people" who should be imprisoned for decades? That he continually accuses former President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton of crimes?

That his campaign was manned by criminals (Flynn, Stone, Manafort, Papadopoulos) who are now convicted felons, aka, his HENCHMEN?

Nancy is absolutely right.

Trump is a wanna-be fascist and his enablers are his henchmen.

Who in the hell does she think she is? Miss Manners? Her net worth is $25 million dollars give or take. She has nothing to lose.

In the meantime, millions of people are suffering from poverty, hunger, disease and homelessness. The middle class is sliding daily into poverty. Yet, Gayle made an issue about Nancy’s name calling.

No matter who wins on election night, Gayle will go shopping the next day.

I was excited about The New Gayle King Show at first. It looked promising; I like a more newsy morning show more than the usual mommy fluff. But she seems uncomfortable on camera, always stammering, apologizing and failing at humor. And those neutered ass-lickers who sit beside her smile nervously.

She's a black woman supporting Trump, in however minor a fashion it may be.

Trump is white supremacist.

How is this not newsworthy?

IMO, you sound like a white person, passing of a critique of a racist as somehow being racist itself. You know, how racist white people react to criticism of their racism.

Whoever you are, you don't seem to have a grasp of the bigger picture.

Notice that even on a gay board ,calling Gail a muff diver is used insultingly . What does that say about us ? if she and Okrah are in the closet,we all know why . So call her boring (she is) ,call her an example of nepotism (she is) ,call her bland ,dull whatever . But stop calling her a lesbian like its a bad thing. I know its popular on here to act like we hate lesbians ,but I dont and never have . I love my lesbian sisters though its slightly more acceptable to be female and gay .They still go through the same shit we gay men have and always will .
