On “The Late Show” Nancy Pelosi body claimed that the Democratic Party “will win” in the 2018 elections while host Stephen Colbert requested “please don’t say that.”
In response to questions about how she felt about midterms, Pelosi replied, “Let me say this: Up until today, I would have said, ‘If the election were held today, we would win.’”
When Colbert asked her to clarify what happened specifically to change that, Pelosi fervently predicted “we will win!”
“Please don’t say that, please don’t say that!” Colbert said. “Do you want to say that on Hillary’s fireworks barge that she canceled? Please, please, please don’t say that.”
“We will win, we own the ground,” Pelosi said. “[…] Democrats will carry the House and — if we have a bigger victory — the Senate, governorships. It’s going to be a great night for America.”
“I feel like I should sacrifice a goat or something to take the hex off of what you just said,” Colbert responded.
