Watch: Nancy Pelosi jokes about size of John Boehner’s gavel

Pin it

Good ol' Nancy Pelosi. Despite losing her dearly held position as Speaker of the House, she still knows how to have a good time. And to her, a good time means using her last moments as Speaker to poke fun at incoming Speaker John Boehner's gavel size in front of the entire House of Representatives.

The video below, which Fox News has dubbed "Humorous Transfer of Power," shows Pelosi's daring joke initially falling flat. Mere moments later, however, House members apparently realize that something funny was said, looked up from their cell phones, and ceased to tweet for whole seconds so that they could more effectively laugh and applaud. God bless America.
