"I actually did not necessarily want to be leader again, but they wanted me to be, so, here I am," she added.

Pelosi also spoke about her experiences as prominent female public official. Crowley asked if she has experienced a double standard in terms of media coverage.

"Well, let me just say that as one who has, you know, been the speaker of the House, I've had to have a very thick skin about every kind of thing that was thrown at me," Pelosi responded. "From my own standpoint, I never expected anything but a double standard."
