House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) daughter warned on Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day” that no one should cross her mother because she will “cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding.”
Alexandra Pelosi, an HBO filmmaker who made an Emmy Award-winning documentary about former President George W. Bush’s 2000 campaign, spoke with CNN hours before her mother headed to the White House — along with other leaders — to meet with President Donald Trump to debate Democrats’ refusal to keep the government open over $5 billion in border wall funding.
Nancy Pelosi presumably will be elected speaker of the House after Democrats officially take control of the House on Thursday.
She previously held the position from 2007-2011 and was the first woman to serve as speaker.
When CNN anchor John Berman asked Alexandra Pelosi about how she thinks her mother will approach her meetings with Trump and his demands for border security, the daughter offered a dire warning to Republicans and immigration enforcement advocates.
“She’ll cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding,” Alexandra Pelosi said of her mother as Berman and co-anchor Alisyn Camerota laughed.
“That’s all you need to know about her. No one ever won betting against Nancy Pelosi. She’s persevered,” Alexandra Pelosi continued.
“No matter what you think of her, you have to give her credit. Because, think about it. Think about all those presidents she’s endured, right? … She’s been through it all,” she also said.
Alexandra Pelosi noted that this will not be her mother’s “first rodeo” — and said she “knows what she’s doing, and that should make you sleep at night — knowing that at least somebody in this town knows what they’re doing.”

“And how do you feel — given that this person whom you said will cut off your neck and you wouldn’t even know you’re bleeding — will be the speaker of the House for a second time tomorrow?” Berman asked the younger Pelosi.
The filmmaker replied, “When Nancy Pelosi came to town, it was a boy’s club. That was 30 years ago … Look around tomorrow. It’s going to be a whole new America.”
Alexandra Pelosi pointed to the record number of women elected to Congress in 2018, the vast majority of whom are Democrats.
“You’re going to see something so magical that you have not seen before,” Alexandra Pelosi said. “I know Trump gets all the attention and his wall. But if you think about it, when you think about how this country is changing fundamentally, when you look at who’s representing us … it’s going to be a beautiful America, and I think we should all be proud of that.”
“And we should just take one moment to exhale and just say we should be proud of ourselves because we have a beautiful-looking Congress,” the filmmaker added.
The government partially shut down before Christmas after Democrats refused to give Trump $5 billion in border wall funding needed for America’s security.
During the shutdown drama, an illegal immigrant shot and killed Newman Police Department Cpl. Ronil “Ron” Singh, 33, during a traffic stop in California — Nancy Pelosi’s own state. The illegal alien suspected of the crime was then on the run until police caught him.
Singh was born in Fiji and immigrated to this country legally.
It was his dream to serve his Newman community in Stanislaus County as a police officer. Because English was not his first language, he worked hard to learn it and to tone down his thick accent so that he could be as effective as possible on the job.
Singh leaves behind his wife and their five-month-old son.
The Fiji-born police officer is “the absolute poster child for why immigration works if done legally,” Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson emphasized Thursday night during an exclusive interview on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”
“I know Trump gets all the attention and his wall. But if you think about it, when you think about how this country is changing fundamentally, when you look at who’s representing us … it’s going to be a beautiful America, and I think we should all be proud of that,” said the filmmaker.
“Illegal immigration doesn’t serve our communities — especially criminals who victimize and exploit our communities,” Christianson said. “Whether you hate the president or love the president, border security goes hand in hand with national security, the safety of our communities and public safety. We need to know who’s in our communities that shouldn’t be.”
But California Democrats have remained painfully silent on Singh’s death — even though Pelosi and California Sens. Kamala Harris (D) and Dianne Feinstein (D) took the time to tweet and speak out against the border wall and in favor of illegal immigrants.
Alexandra Pelosi most recently released a documentary called, “Outside the Bubble: On the Road with Alexandra Pelosi,” in which she left the liberal “bubble” and sought out Trump voters on her road trip.
