House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suffered an embarrassing setback Tuesday after Republicans called her out for violating the chamber’s rules by saying President Donald Trump’s comments about four freshman House members were racist.

”These comments from the White House are disgraceful and disgusting and those comments are racist,” Pelosi had said on the House floor during debate on a proposed resolution condemning the president’s remarks as racist.
