Fox News host Tucker Carlson lambasted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Monday, accusing the long-serving Democrat of engaging in massive hypocrisy.
Carlson’s remarks were aimed at Pelosi’s response to a question from a reporter about why Democrats are not speaking out about violence being committed against crisis pregnancy centers and churches in the wake of the Supreme Court returning the issue of abortion back to the states.
Pelosi instead claimed to be a “very Catholic person” who “believes in a woman’s right to choose” to have the procedure.
Carlson did not let her get away with that.
“First of all, you’re not a Catholic. I mean, this is ridiculous!” he exclaimed. “Let’s stop pretending. Second, you don’t believe at all on the right to choose. You applauded as nurses got fired because they didn’t want to take the mandatory vax because they didn’t want to hurt their own fertility.
“They wanted to have children maybe someday. And you thought that was great. So it wasn’t their body and their choice. You’re a liar and a fraud. You’re not a Christian. Be quiet,” he said.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) also joined in the fray.
“Nancy Pelosi serving yet another term as Speaker would be catastrophic to our nation. We can end her career forever if we just get out and vote in a few weeks. Let’s do this, America!” she tweeted.
