House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who previously served as a the first female speaker of the House, laughed off comments made by Donald Trump earlier this week that Hillary Clinton was playing a “woman card.”
“I don’t know what card he’s playing, what, the joker card?” Pelosi said at her press conference Friday, when asked to weigh in on Trump’s remarks. “That doesn’t even count in a deck of cards.”
Pelosi continued that asking someone to vote for you because you are a woman is “not a winning message.”
“The winning message is, you should support me because I think I can do the best job and here is what I can do and I think that’s what Hillary Clinton is presenting,” she said.
Pelosi reiterated that she has not endorsed either candidate in the Democratic primary and praised Bernie Sanders for the young supporters he was bringing into the election.
“It would be a wonderful, glorious thing to have a woman president of the United States, but that is not the credential to be elected or to have the confidence of the American people,” Pelosi said.
“I think Hillary Clinton is playing the experience card,” she later added.
