Nancy Pelosi's daughter: 'She'll cut your head off and you won't even know you're bleeding'

Alexandra Pelosi didn't want to discuss her mother on CNN's New Day on Wednesday. But when she did, her speakership endorsement for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was very, very vivid.

As Democrats assume the House majority in the new year, CNN's John Berman wanted to know how the presumptive incoming speaker handles meetings with President Trump. Alexandra Pelosi wouldn't answer at first, but eventually shared a blunt response: "She'll cut your head off and you won't even know you're bleeding. That's all you need to know about her."

Pelosi went on to address criticism against her mother, saying "No matter what you think of her, you have to give her credit" because she's "endured" so many different presidents. That experience means everyone can "sleep at night knowing at least someone in this town knows what they're doing," Pelosi continued.

Despite facing challenges to her leadership before and after the midterm elections, Nancy Pelosi is expected to be elected House speaker on Thursday.
