Nancy Pelosi, 66, the first ever female Speaker of the House, has been the subject of ridicule for the past several years due to widespread speculation that she has had several bad face lifts. (Pelosi denies having had a face lift).
Most recently, on Fox News' Hannity & Colmes Republican pollster Frank Luntz, insulted Pelosi saying, "I always use the line for Nancy Pelosi, You get one shot at a facelift. If it doesn't work the first time, let it go.'” Luntz was quickly admonished by fellow commentators as having taken a “cheap shot” with his comment.
Whether Americans are behind Pelosi or not, her face lift status does not interfere with her job performance, so why bring it up? Let's talk about her mental health instead.
Pelosi didn’t rise to her historical current position by succumbing to insults. Regarding politics, she told CNN’s Eliott C. McLaughlin, "You go into the ring, you have to be ready to take your hits, and that's part of it.”
