When Republicans refused to call Barack Obama “President,” there was media outrage.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that it’s hard for her to call Donald Trump “president” during a discussion with the Commonwealth Club of California on Tuesday.
Scott Shafer, the Senior California Politics Government Desk at KQED asked Pelosi why she doesn’t call President Trump “president.”
“It’s hard,” Pelosi responded before breaking into laughter.
Pelosi then explained to Shafer the disappointment she experienced when Hillary Clinton failed to win the presidency.
However, when Republicans refused to call Barack Obama “president,” there was considerable media outrage.
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in 2013 went on a tirade about what he described as Republican efforts to delegitimize President Barack Obama by referring to him simply as Obama and not President of the United States. That same year MSNBC’s now-defunct show The Cycle did a panel in which a heated discussion focused on the same issue.
