Gayle King of CBS News found herself in the social media crosshairs after questioning House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of the word “henchmen” to describe the president’s associates in an interview.
The television journalist’s name was trending on Twitter early Saturday as folks slammed King, who called out Pelosi’s language as “egregious” and questioned whether the California Democrat’s words were “just as insulting as what [the president’s] saying about you.”
“Tuesday is a big debate,” King said to Pelosi. “Tuesday, the debate between the two of them. You earlier suggested that you didn’t think Biden should debate. Do you still feel that way?”
“The president has no fidelity to fact or truth, and actually in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution,” Pelosi said. “He and his henchmen are a danger with their comments — are a danger to our democracy. Why bother? He isn’t committed to the Constitution,” Pelosi said.
“But Speaker Pelosi, here’s the problem. Your language, to some, is just as egregious as what they’re saying, by calling the president’s people ‘henchmen,’” King said.
“Well, I don’t care what he says about me,” Pelosi said. “Every knock from him is a boost for me. If he wants to help me raise money, he can keep knocking me.”
Trump and Biden are scheduled to for their first debate – to be moderated by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace – in Cleveland on Tuesday.
