WATCH: Pelosi's Daughter On Her Mom: 'She’ll Cut Your Head Off And You Won’t Even Know You’re Bleeding'

On Wednesday, speaking on CNN’s “New Day,” Alexandra Pelosi, the daughter of incoming Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, bragged about her mother’s toughness, saying, “She’ll cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding.”
Pelosi was asked about her mother’s impending discussions on Wednesday with President Trump regarding the government shutdown.
Host John Berman started by asking, “If you can tell us what Speaker Pelosi thinks about going in —”
Pelosi stated, “John, we have known you for two decades. Do you think I’m the kind of person who is going to come on CNN and talk about my mother? Is that who you think I am?”
Berman persisted, “I’m asking you, you were a fantastic political reporter. How much does she approach meetings with President Trump, A, and B, just what are your feelings about this person, who you know quite well, becoming Speaker of the House for a second time?”
Pelosi continued:
She’ll cut your head off and you won’t even know you’re bleeding. That’s all you need to know about her, No one ever won betting against Nancy Pelosi. She’s persevered. You've got to give her credit, 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 was the Bush, the Bush, the Clinton, you know, she’s been through it all. So, she’s been around. This is not her first rodeo, as your friend George Bush would say. So she knows what she’s doing. And that’s — should make you sleep at night that at least somebody in this town knows what they're doing.
On Tuesday, Nancy Pelosi wrote to her fellow Democrats, "We are giving the Republicans the opportunity to take yes for an answer. Senate Republicans have already supported this legislation, and if they reject it now, they will be fully complicit in chaos and destruction of the President's third shutdown of his term."
Despite her obvious admiration for her mother, Alexandra Pelosi’s own rhetoric is nowhere near as nakedly partisan. In an interview with HBO, speaking of her film “Outside the Bubble,” when asked what she would say to liberals interested in bridging the divide between the political Left and Right, she stated:
Make some friends in the red states. You don’t even have to leave your state, there’s red in your own communities. You also need a balanced media diet. I believe that if everybody spent their next vacation in a community in America with people they didn’t agree with, they’d probably leave feeling a little more comfortable about the country they live in. If you spend time with people, you understand where they’re coming from and you respect them more than if you’re judging from a distance.
She added, “I think liberal America needs to watch to understand the America they live in. There are more of them than there are of you. Donald Trump is our president: He did win. There is a large part of this country that doesn’t agree with us on key issues and we have to respect that.”
