Pelosi Confusion: Doesn’t Remember Gary Cohn’s Title

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi struggled to remember that Gary Cohn is the Director of the National Economic Council.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) forgot the title of Gary Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council, during a press conference with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Monday.

“Don’t take my word for it about corporate America getting the break. Gary Cohn, what’s his title?” Pelosi asked Schumer.

A reporter can be heard telling Pelosi that Cohn is the Director of the National Economic Council.

“Well whatever it is, he has a big deal title,” Pelosi continued.

Schumer joked that Cohn’s title was “spreader of mistruths on the tax bill.”

As the White House’s chief economic adviser, Cohn has played a pivotal role in attempting to get the Republican tax reform plan passed, the same plan that Pelosi was bashing during her press conference.
