Two-time failed presidential candidate and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton compared the late Queen Elizabeth II of Britain to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Fox News reports:
Clinton made the statement during a Sunday appearance on CNN’s “State of the Union,” saying Pelosi consistently fights through “turmoil and challenge” for her values.
Queen Elizabeth II passed away at a royal residence in Scotland last week, leading tens of millions of mourners to pay their respects across the globe.
“I think Nancy Pelosi is the gutsiest woman in politics right now,” Clinton told host Dana Bash on Sunday.
“She has shown, through all kinds of turmoil and challenge, what it means to — somewhat like the queen to be drawing an analogy here — get up every day, put on those high heels she wears, suit up to fight for the values and ideals that she strongly believes in,” she continued.
Clinton said, “One of my favorite memories is when Bill and I stayed with her and Prince Philip on the Britannia, what used to be the royal yacht, as we commemorated the 50th anniversary of D-Day. So we were in close quarters.”
