Ok. Luke Russert has lost his mind insulting Nancy Pelosi. Somebody

needs to turn him over their lap and spank his butt.

Nancy Pelosi To Luke Russert: Question About My Age Is 'Offensive' (VIDEO)

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi had a sharp exchange with NBC reporter Luke Russert on Wednesday.

Pelosi was announcing her intent to remain in post as the leader of the minority caucus in the House. Russert asked whether this choice was blocking younger members who wanted to move up in the party.

"Some of your colleagues privately say that your decision to stay on prohibits the party from having a younger leadership and hurts the party in the long term," he said. "What's your response?"

"Age discrimination!" some of Pelosi's colleagues shouted. "Boo!"

"Next!" Pelosi cried, adding, "Oh, you've always asked that question, except to Mitch McConnell!" The women behind her applauded.

Otherwise, he'd still be emptying the wastepaper baskets....in fact, he should go back to that gig. He has no talent as a "cub reporter" and he has no fucking standing to be at a WH presser, save his NAME.

People work ten, twelve, fifteen years or more to get that gig. This little fucker's dad keels over and he goes straight from the racist, sexist halls of the once-great but now GOP co-opted Boston College to the Hill and the White House.

It's BULLSHIT. NBC needs to REMOVE that shitstain from their ranks.

Jimmy Olsen...er, Luke Russert...."

Jimmy Olsen was a fuckup too, as I recall. He was always getting rescued by Superman. Ain't no Superman here in the real world, though, Lukie....and he burned a big bridge by pissing on women and old people, with one smartass, stupid, Not Ready For The Big Leagues question.

I was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt at first and give him a chance, but he's really shown himself to be a talentless hack who's only as high up in the business as he is because of his father's position. I wasn't crazy about his father, but at least he earned his positions the old-fashioned way without relying on family name and cred.

Luke, with one dumbass question, touted those GOP THEMES better than Bonehead or McConnell the Turtle ever could have.

Never mind a WH presser....unless his job is to stand on the sidelines, and, after the presser is done, go through the rows and pick up the styrofoam cups and candy bar wrappers.

He stole a job from someone OLDER and EXPERIENCED, solely due to nepotism. He hasn't paid his dues, and he Does Not Belong.

He's a little asshole. He needs to GO. Send him to some boondocks affiliate in Bumfuck, MS. Make him EARN his way. This "halls of power" shit for that little punk is just wrong.

Just plain ignore him. Don't send Dems to do interviews with him. Don't call on him in pressers. If Dems want to be interviewed, have them be very pointed in saying they don't wish to do it with him.

The longer the top 3 stay, the longer it takes to infuse the caucus with new blood like #GOP did w Cantor, Ryan, McCarthy etc.


Yeah, Li'l Luke, the only ones who are excited about Cantor, Ryan, and McCarthy are Cantor, Ryan, and McCarthy.

That was the epitome of disrespect and sexism. He always seems smug and arrogant, and he does NOT deserve to have the position at NBC that he has. Do you know how many hard working, professional journalists from markets all over the country DREAM of having his position, and they work a heck of a lot harder than he has, and he gets it because his dad, who was a genuine, hard working journalist, died.

in terms of Mike getting out of the way so younger pundits and columnists can get a fair shake on MSNBC.

Don't care for Barnicle myself but I have a feeling that the reaction would be a fist knocking Lil' Luke's ass onto the floor.

50. Several years ago I met Pelosi at a JJ dinner

and had the opportunity to get close to her in a crowd. I blurted out, "I have a very important question," which got her attention and she nodded at me. I cleared my throat and said, "You and I are the same age but you look ten years younger than me. Do you think that's fair?"

She was momentarily taken aback (I'm sure she expected something political), then laughed and said, "Oh, I don't think that's true."

But for a split second I saw the cutest glint in her eye which meant to me that she was truly flattered. Ms. Pelosi always looks her absolute best, and I think that is a point of pride for her.

I believe someone should put that little shit on notice.

56. The kid's a puke - agreed. But the Dems aren't growing a farm team...

We see the same old energies heading everything, not stepping aside to let others evolve and take the lead in key areas.

Feinstein, Kerry, Reid are from another era. Russert can rightly be castigated for ageism and sexism. Still, Dems not advancing ambitious change agents.

63. There is an old saying "never change horses in the middle of the stream".

What makes you think people don't evolve as they age? I am sure the people who are directly involved will make the right decision as to who remains in their present positions. Don't you?

60. Nancy DID spank his butt

He's probably home hiding his head under a pillow hoping not to see the tape of her response to his stupid question.

88. Not WASPy--not in the slightest. That little turd went to Roman Catholic Boston College.

Years ago, BC was a bastion of liberal thought; a place where social justice was prioritized. It was all about peace, love, equality, tolerance, and rigorous intellectual thought. It was also a very accessible school, where poor kids could mingle with their more wealthy peers.

Now, it's full of sneering, pinched-lipped, scowling, angry Republican tightasses. They're all rich, they're all pissed, they despise black and brown people, and anyone from another country who maybe, possibly, perhaps could be "illegal" or a "job taker," they're all "entitled" and "special," and they're all to the right of Attila the Hun.

I had friends who went to BC during the Vietnam era--they don't recognize the joint. They feel it has lost its way.

Hey Luke... "some of your colleagues say" you should move out the way so that an EXPERIENCED, knowledgeable journalist can ask the questions!

72. The timeless question

Nature? Nurture? What made Luke such a jerk?

In this case, I'd have to say 100% of both.

There is nothing wrong with expecting others to do the same.

Piss on him.

80. Luke Russert owes Nancy Pelosi an apology

and apparently he did not get the point if why it is offensive-- completely rude moron IMO. Does anybody ask the geezer crotchety old Republicans why they don't step down--hell to the no! Go ask John McCain and Mitch McConnel why they don't step down Luke, you sexist ageist punk!!
