Pelosi jokes about awkward video

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) joked about her appearance in a viral video showing the top congressional leaders holding hands and singing "We Shall Overcome" at a Congressional Gold Medal ceremony for Martin Luther King Jr. and Coretta Scott King.

At her weekly press conference on Wednesday, a reporter asked her opinion on the video, which shows Pelosi singing enthusiastically while Speaker John BoehnerJohn BoehnerClinton maps out first 100 days The Hill's 12:30 Report Boehner on Cruz: 'Lucifer is back' MORE (R-Ohio), Senate Majority Leader Harry ReidHarry ReidSuper-PAC targets Portman on trade Dem leader urges compromise on FCC set-top box plan Senate Dems introduce Iran sanctions extension MORE (D-Nev.) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnellMitch McConnellProgressive group changes tone on Kaine Trump hits Kaine on TPP: He supports a 'job killer' Clinton maps out first 100 days MORE (R-Ky.) appeared less than comfortable.

"You mean that I was smiling and singing?" Pelosi asked to laughter.

Asked why the other congressional leaders weren't smiling too, Pelosi said, "Maybe they were being pulled too tightly, I don't know."
