There is at least one woman that Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain doesn’t have much respect for.
At Wednesday night’s CNBC debate, Cain referred to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as “Princess Nancy.”
The candidate complained that the legislation to replace President Barack Obama’s health care reform law had already been written, but then-Speaker Pelosi wouldn’t let it come up for a vote.
“We didn’t hear about it in the previous Congress because Princess Nancy sent it to committee and it stayed there,” Cain remarked.
At a tele-townhall event last week, Cain responded to a question about sexual harassment allegations by saying that he had “respect for women.”
“I have been a professional. I respect women,” he said.
