Pelosi Clashes With McCain on 'The View,' Downplays Fracture in Democratic Party

Telling Chelsea Handler a story about her first official meeting with the newly inaugurated President Trump, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said that "we have to make sure that the president knows what he's talking about".

Meghan McCain of ABC's "The View" helped co-hosts close out the week on Friday by asking the 77-year-old Californian to explain why high-ranking Democrats have called for new leaders. It is not a rubber stamp party.

"There's a fracture in your party in the same way there's a fracture in mine".

Pelosi argued that while some in her party have asked her to step down, she "can name an overwhelming number of people" who want her to remain in her leadership role.

This led Pelosi to muse that, rather than trying to impeach President Trump, "I think intervention is really needed". "How do you respond to that?"

"Well, let me, with all due respect, disagree with you - there is not a fracture in our party similar to what's happening in the Republican Party", Pelosi claimed.

The audience applauded, and then Pelosi clarified: "But the president was listening".

"I think, with all due respect, that's part of your problem", McCain said.

"It's always been a dynamic party. That's the vitality of it". "I want to see that happen", Ms. Sanchez said during an October 5 appearance on C-Span.
