Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was grilled by CNN’s Candy Crowley on Sunday about President Obama’s response to an aggressive Russia and the Israeli government’s behavior in Gaza — but all she really wanted to do was talk about Republicans.

Crowley had just finished interviewing the California congresswoman on the crisis in Ukraine and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “I have to leave it there,” the “State of the Union” host said. “I hope you’ll come back and we will talk politics and midterms, and all kinds of things that are going around –”

But Pelosi cut her off before she could finish. “Right, well that just — I think it’s important to note, though, that through all of this, the Republicans are trying to sue the president — on a path to impeach the president — while we’re trying to create jobs and have stability in our country and in the world,” she blurted out. “And I’m sorry that we didn’t get a chance to talk more about that.”

“We will do that the next time, I promise,” Crowley told the congresswoman reassuringly.
