Pelosi On Bachmann’s Reaction To DOMA Ruling: ‘Who Cares?’ (VIDEO)

June 26, 2013 10:50 a.m.

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) issued a forceful denunciation Wednesday of the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), but House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) couldn’t have cared less.

After the ruling on the 1996 law — a decision that gives same-sex couples the same federal benefits as heterosexual couples — Bachmann responded by saying that no court “can undo what a holy God has instituted.” 

But when asked about the statement at a press briefing, Pelosi threw her hands up, shook her head and made it clear that she didn’t much care about the Minnesota tea partier’s opinion.

“Who cares?” Pelosi said, drawing laughter from her Democratic colleagues.
