House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) couldn’t understand a question about Congressional process from a reporter on Friday, and she had to hand the duty of answering off to her number two, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD).

Asked about whether she would be able to get the House Democratic Caucus on board with any deal Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) cut with President Trump, Pelosi was confused by the question’s premise.

She chuckled nervously as the reporter finished the question. “That was quite a convoluted statement, Chad,” Pelosi said. “Honest to God, you want to repeat the question?”

The House Minority Leader then called Hoyer up to the podium to answer the question. “It’s far too complicated,” she said.

Pelosi has had trouble with similar situations in the past year. For instance, she could not recall Trump official Gary Cohn’s position, and she has repeatedly called Trump “President Bush.”
