Pelosi: Comparing Dem Chaos to the 1968 Convention ‘Ridiculous’

Thursday at the House minority leader’s weekly press briefing, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) commented on the recent chaos at the Democratic Party’s state convention in Nevada and pushed back against those comparing the current chaos to the 1968 Democratic National Convention rioting, which her California congressional colleague Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) had done a day earlier.

Pelosi said, “One thing I do want to reject, I saw one show — one of the early morning shows had harkened back to the 1968 convention. I was at the 1968 convention … And there is nothing —I mean to even suggest is really I think ridiculous. Nothing in common. The war of Vietnam that fueled the unhappiness–the matter was handled in a way that was really inappropriate. This was an incident.”
