Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hasn’t been in the public eye since stepping down, after Republicans regained control of the chamber.
However, she remains a big figure in politics and when she reacted to a “joke” by President Biden, everyone paid attention.
Obviously, Pelosi didn’t think it was funny — though Donald Trump will.
LA Times reporter Nolan McCaskill spent a day with Pelosi, who’s still a member of Congress despite not being the Speaker.
During that day, McCaskill saw Pelosi reacting to a speech given by Biden on March 9, when he referenced his 2020 race against Trump.

I had a big fight with the former president and maybe future president — bless me, Father.
When boos erupted after Biden’s comment, POTUS clarified that he was only joking.
However, Pelosi wasn’t ready to laugh. She watched the speech from her office and immediately replied:
Oh, please. Don’t even say such a thing. That isn’t kidding. That’s horrible.
Trump recently announced he’ll run for President again in 2024, prompting plenty of reaction from Washington and millions of citizens.
Currently, he’s one of only a few confirmed GOP candidates, though his biggest competition is expected to announce soon: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
Pelosi also didn’t like Biden mentioning Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) in the speech, saying:
He’s going to raise her a million dollars by mentioning her name.
Biden was referring to when Rep. Greene called him a “liar” during his State of the Union address earlier this year.
But when it comes to Trump, his chances of a re-election may rise or fall based on the new arrest revelation — some say his support will only increase.
