"I have had the privilege of reading the testimony from Dreamers, I still have more," she said, receiving applause in the chamber. "I thank all of you."

The Towering Intellects at CNN have shown us the light.
Anyone else wondering what they shot her up with to keep her on her feet and semi-coherent that long...
She stands up for 8 hours for foreign nationals. I’ll bet she’d never do that for the American people. What a skank.
Eight hours of content-free talking.
quite the change from being on her knees to illegals for decades
Wikipedia notes that Pelosi set this record while wearing stiletto heels. Because that’s important. Because she is the most awesomest ever.
If only she would show that much drive trying to help Americans...
Chuck failed with the last shut down over dreamers because he didn’t do it like Nancy does...
Now I'm really wondering what she was on....
Yet she wont stand for 2 minutes to support the American people.
Has she ever spoke 8 hours about American dreams? Just another Marxist pandering for her voters.
Eight hour paid vacation time for other 433 members of the House of Representatives with a potential “Government Shut Down” two days later.
The “Peoples’ Representatives” - my eye they are!
Well even though Pelosi doesn’t make any sense she did something Hillary couldn’t.....Nan at least stood
Yeah, at the State of the Union she wasn’t able to stand. Must have been some kind of back injury.
Shes top nut on the Dhimmicrat House fruitcake
+1. To be honest not many younger people could go standing for that long. This will yield endless blooper cuts though.
I wonder WHO will stand in respect for the million Mexicans who honestly attempted to get to the USA and were turned down, after giving finger prints, interviews, economic status and were LAW abiding. Will there EVER be anyone who will APOLOGIZE to them for charging them $110 fee to interview them and say NO.
Urinalysis should be mandatory for ALL govt workers (employed, contracted, elected) in all branches of govt... including Congress.
“Pelosi sets record with 8-hour marathon speech on DACA”
And in her anesthetized state of mind, she probably through she was speaking for her allotted 5 minutes.
Eigth hours of repeating the voice in her ear.
