Ms. Pelosi is something else I have to tell you. She literally chased Republican representative Tom Marino down an aisle pointing and generally losing it over Marino’s assertion that the Democrats didn’t do anything about border security when they controlled the House, Senate, and the Presidency. Marino said it was “interesting” that the issue had not been addressed then.
Ms. Pelosi then according to reports freaked out.

“Yes it is true,” Marino replied directly to Pelosi, who was House speaker in those years. “I did the research on it. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”
Marino then urged lawmakers to support the border supplemental “because apparently I hit the right nerve.”
After Marino concluded his remarks and as many Republicans applauded their colleague, Pelosi crossed the chamber again in view of cameras, enraged, pointing and sticking her finger at Marino.
She then followed Marino up a Republican aisle, gesturing and arguing with him. Lawmakers on the GOP side gathered in dismay as one spoke out to tell the chair that the House was not in order, in an effort to halt the bickering.
