Steny Hoyer: ‘I Think the Actions of the President Were Petty, Mean-Spirited and Beneath Any President’
REPORTER: "When the president says, though, this is a public relations and cancels this by the speaker how is it not a partisan tit for tat that will go back and forth with no real resolution?"
HOYER: "I will say and have said again -- I think I've said it to this group. The actions of the president were petty, mean spirited and beneath any president of the United States to take. After all, Nancy Pelosi is the third in line to be president of the United States under our statutes. And doing this small, petty act is, unfortunately, all too regular for this president. Thank you."
