KQED’s politics and government editor Scott Shafer sat down with House speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday in an interview spanning a range of issues. The Speaker called out Facebook for “lying to the public” after the company refused to remove a doctored video, shared by President Trump, in which she appeared to stammer, and she laid out her thoughts on impeachment. In this segment, Scott Shafer joins us to analyze the speaker’s remarks and the direction of the democratic party. We’ll also hear from Wall Street Journal reporter Rebecca Ballhaus about other political news, including the White House’s order that the US navy hide a destroyer named after Senator John McCain so that the ship would not appear in photographs with the President.
