Leftist host gushes over House speaker during interview
Co-host Joy Behar gushed about the idea of "President Nancy Pelosi" during an interview with the House speaker on "The View."
"I'm dreaming of the day when we can, say 'President Nancy Pelosi,'" Behar said.
"I think that sounds really good," Behar said as the California Democrat chuckled.
The leftist host went on to bash President Donald Trump, expressing concern about how he could "steal this election" despite polls showing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden leading.
Behar then pointed to Russian interference.
"How concerned are you about that?" Behar asked.
"Well, I'm concerned, but my motto is 'we don’t agonize, we organize,'" Pelosi responded.
"And I have no doubt that in typical fashion of lie, cheat and steal to win this election," she added.
"So we are prepared for that. I'm sorry to have to say that ... but that is the reality."

Behar is one of many liberal media talking heads who fantasied about the idea of Pelosi becoming president.
Last week, MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle stressed that Pelosi was "second in line" for the presidency just hours after Trump and first lady Melania Trump had tested positive for the coronavirus.
She asked Pelosi if the hite House had "contacted you about the continuity of government?"
"No, they haven't," Pelosi responded to Ruhle.
"But that is an ongoing -- not with the White House but with the military, quite frankly, in terms of some officials in the government."
"But let us just all pray for the president's health, and thank God the vice president has tested negatively and the second lady as well."
According to a report from NewsBreak, Left-wing Harvard Law School professor Laurence Tribe contends that if the winner of the Nov. 3rd general election is not determined by Jan. 20, 2021, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, the third in line for the presidency, would assume the office.
“They’re trying to make it look chaotic, but there is a fail-safe mechanism built into the Constitution itself."
"And that is no matter how much dust [Trump] throws into the gears, at high noon on Jan. 20, 2021, if there has not been a new president elected, at that point, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the House, becomes president of the United States,” he said on MSNBC.
