House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was forced to leave her own press conference in her home district in California after her supporters grew increasingly antagonistic, at one point chanting, “You are a liar.”
Pelosi was speaking at a press conference in front of pro-immigration activists in San Francisco. According to NBC News, the activists were infuriated with her because she participated in negotiations with President Trump over protections for some of the undocumented immigrants in the United States.
Specifically, they had gathered to protest the Dream Act that would, under Trump, increase border security while providing protections for some. The protesters raised banners that said “all of 11 million” in reference to the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants currently in the country.
According to Breitbart, the activists changed for over 20 minutes, telling Pelosi, “you have the audacity to tell us you have been fighting deportation.”
Pelosi’s response was a terse, “Yes I am.”
Undeterred, the activists chanted over and over, “You are a liar,” as Pelosi decried them for their ignorance. The crowd kept chanting the same words. Pelosi responded by telling them that they were not helping the cause. They did not stop. Finally she left.
As she walked out, she added, “Since you don’t want to listen we will have to just go.”
