Pelosi: If Boehner were a woman he'd be considered weakest speaker in history

"Well, I will say this about John Boehner — and I have a good relationship — if he were a woman, they would be calling him the weakest speaker in history," Pelosi said during an interview with MSNBC's Chris Hayes.

Hayes then asked Pelosi to elaborate.

"Well because they never get anything done," Pelosi said. "Where are the results? They've never been able to pass anything without our coming to the rescue except their very and, in my view, unprincipled budgets."

Pelosi added that she's tired of the double standard.

"So when people ask me I think: you know what, if a woman were speaker and nothing was happening in this way, they'd say 'oh my gosh,' " Pelosi said. "I'm just getting a little, shall we say, tired of the way they take a pass on some but not on others. We get criticized for accomplishing things. They don't get criticized for not accomplishing things."
