A Georgetown University student confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during a town hall on Tuesday, calling out her comments that the benefits Americans received because of the GOP tax law were “crumbs.”

“You’ve spoken about the effects of the Republican tax plan, specifically referring to its effects on average Americans as crumbs,” the student said. As the son of small business owners, I know that it’s helped my parent hire more employees. It’s helped us pay off our mortgage, helped put me through college.”

“Would you still refer to the effects of this tax plan on average Americans as crumbs?” the student asked.

“Yes there are some benefits that some are feeling in a particular way,” Pelosi said. “My statement was really a fuller statement that says while they provide a banquet for the top one percent, they are giving some crumbs to other people.”

Pelosi continued to defend her “crumbs” comments for several minutes, and told the student that the economics behind the Republican tax law are “BS.”
