In an interview on CBS' '60 Minutes' on Friday, January 15, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi talked about how she did her laundry and washed dishes as she waited to hear back from Vice President Mike Pence after she called him to discuss invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Donald Trump after his supporters stormed the Capitol building on January 6.

However, after she and soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer called Pence, his team put the lawmakers' call on hold for 20 minutes before telling them that the VP will not be able to attend the call. As it turns out, Pelosi did not let the 20 minutes go to waste. 

"We were kept on the line for 20 minutes. 'He's gonna be here in a minute, a minute, a minute.' Well, he never did come to the phone," Pelosi told '60 Minutes' host Lesley Stahl. "They kept you on hold for 20 minutes," Stahl remarked, to which Pelosi casually added, "At least. Of course, I was โ€” I was at home, so I was running the dishwasher, putting my clothes in the laundry. We're still waiting for him to return the call."



 

As soon as Pelosi's comments went viral on social media, her followers touted her multitasking capabilities. "@SpeakerPelosi Is a Warrior! Heck, she was doing laundry while on hold waiting for Pence to do the right thing! Multitasking Patriot Queen!" one of them said while another commented, "What seemed to shock Lesley most was Nancy saying she was on hold for Pence while she was also cleaning dishes and throwing in a load of laundry. Yeah, Lesley, The Speaker can multitask."

A third remarked, "Nancy Pelosi cracks me up. She ran the dishwasher and did laundry while waiting on hold for 20 minutes for VP Pence to take her call... 80 years old, a power house, and I am thankful she is still alive." Another wrote, "Nancy Pelosi said she was doing laundry while Pence had her on hold. She is doing all this AND laundry! I bet Pence doesnโ€™t even know how to do laundry. #60Minutes." A commenter tweeted, "Nancy Pelosi doing her laundry while waiting on Mike Pence to answer the phone to IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT is a total mood." One more quipped, "Heard Pelosi say she was calling up Pence to invoke the 25th & while on hold was doing laundry and loading the dishwasher ***looks over at my partner*** WOMEN ARE QUEENS!!! Running the whole world with no pause."



 



 



 



 



 



 

While some touted her for being a badass while waiting for the VP to answer her call, others thought that she was lying when she said that she was doing her own laundry. For one, it was hours after she had survived an attempted coup which put her life in danger, and also, she had a net worth of $114M, which meant that she could easily hire people to have her laundry taken care of. 

"On 60 minutes, lying Nancy pelosi said she waited 20 minutes on her phone for Pence to answer on article 25. While waiting, she was doing laundry, dishes..who seriously believes sheโ€™s washing her own for 30 years? Just canโ€™t help herself from stupidity and meaningless lies," one of them said, while another wrote, "Proof speaker pelosi lies....she just said she was waiting so long for pence, she knew it was long because she was loading her dishwasher and throwing in laundry!!! C'mon Nancy you aren't doing your own dishes or laundry."

A third remarked, "Pelosi said she was home doing her laundry when she was on hold with Pence ! Laundry ! After a coup?" One more said, "Pelosi told CBS' '60 Minutes' that she tried to reach out to Pence to gauge his willingness to explore the 25th Amendment, but was placed on hold + did not get through. (The silent 'no') I was at home, running the dishwasher, putting my clothes in the laundry. Sure she was."
