Nancy Pelosi: Scott Brown's Remarks About Elizabeth Warren Shows He's Clueless About Women

Posted: Updated:

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said on Sunday morning that recent comments Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.) made about Democratic Senate rival Elizabeth Warren show he's clueless about women.

Pelosi made the suggestion during an appearance on ABC's "This Week."

During a Democratic primary debate Tuesday, Warren was asked about Brown's decision to pose nude in a magazine during law school. Asked how she paid for college, Warren said she kept her clothes on.

"Thank God," Brown laughed during a radio interview about the comment afterward. He later said he was joking.

Pelosi said the comment showed "how clueless" Brown is, and that he may not even realize how disrespectful some might find that joke. The California Democrat said she hopes Brown takes back the remark.

Brown suggested he was "joking" when he made the comments in question. The Republican senator told reporters on Friday he was responding to a "wisecrack" from Warren about a decision he made to pay for school.

Democrats hope to oust Brown from the Senate seat once held by Ted Kennedy.
