Pelosi asked her daughter, Alexandra Pelosi, to evaluate her personality following a testy 2020 conference call with then-Vice President Mike Pence about the COVID-19 pandemic response, according to footage from a documentary about the speaker that premiers Tuesday night on HBO.
- “As somebody who beautifully crafted her own career, I’m sure it’s gonna be very difficult for her to watch how she looks to her own daughter,” Alexandra Pelosi told Vanity Fair of the documentary, which she directed. “What’s she gonna do, sue her daughter? She’s not gonna sue me.”
- In a preview of the movie Tuesday, Politico described it as “flattering” of its subject.
