On a recent episode of ‘The View,’ filmmaker Alexandra Pelosi, daughter of Nancy Pelosi, delivered an impassioned and controversial appearance that left viewers reaching for their remotes. Addressing topics ranging from the state of the US Capitol to her mother’s political career, Alexandra’s comments have created quite a stir.
Joy Behar, 81, initiated the conversation by stating, “The current chaos in the house of representatives would never have happened on Nancy Pelosi’s watch, in my opinion.” To this, Alexandra responded by discussing her latest HBO documentary, ‘The Insurrectionist Next Door,’ which details the attack on the US Capitol on January 6.
Hoping to strike a light note, Alexandra began, “It’s feel good Friday so I’ll try to be on my best behavior and try not to get myself canceled.” However, she quickly segued into heavier territory, referencing certain members of the Republican conference as “a bunch of brats” with “zero experience.”
Highlighting one of the more controversial actions on January 6, Alexandra declared, “People were accused of literally pooping in the United States Capitol. That actually happened, I saw it with my own two eyes!” This comment countered the narrative set by some Republicans who dismissed the invaders as “just tourists.”
Diving deeper into the political discourse, Alexandra addressed the tumultuous state of the Republican party. “The reason that the House is a mess is because the country is a mess… we’re all so divided,” she said. This comes on the heels of Steve Scalise’s sudden withdrawal from the House speaker campaign and the subsequent turmoil within the GOP.
However, it wasn’t just the Republicans who came under Alexandra’s scrutiny. She also mentioned Democratic Senator Bob Menendez, who was accused of questionable ties with the Egyptian government.
Alexandra didn’t shy away from personal matters either. When discussing Rep Patrick McHenry’s recent decision to remove her mother, Nancy Pelosi, from her Capitol “hideaway office,” Alexandra fired back, calling the move “so juvenile” and “petty.” She further remarked, “It’s all very childish and it makes America look pathetic.”
While Alexandra robustly defended her mother from critics, she deftly sidestepped when co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin broached the topic of term limits.
That being said, Alexandra made it clear: “If you don’t like Nancy Pelosi, you have every right to vote her out of office. If you don’t like Mitch McConnell, you have every right to vote him out of office.”
But it was her “loud” and “manic” demeanor that had viewers talking the most. Social media platform X (formerly Twitter) saw multiple users sharing their bewilderment. “Why is Alexandra Pelosi yelling? …” questioned one, while another added, “She’s coming off like she’s a wannabe Soprano hopped up on something !!! Not a good representation of her mother!!!”
