During her weekly press briefing, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California snapped at a reporter when she asked whether she intended on finishing her term as speaker after she steps down in January.
In her speech, the outgoing House speaker discussed her achievements as a leader of her party.
The Daily Wire reported that Pelosi's attitude immediately soured after she was asked whether she would be able to finish her term as speaker if the gavel were to be removed.
"Will you commit to serving your full two-year term for the people of San Francisco?"

Following the midterm elections, which gave Democrats control of the Senate, Pelosi said she would step down from her position as the leader of the party. She would then remain as a backbencher.
According to Townhall, Pelosi was elected to serve a two-year term in November, but she has not committed to finishing the full term.
Despite the fact that many Americans, especially those from her district, want to know if she would be able to finish her term as speaker, she only gave a brief three-word response.
Voters should be aware of Pelosi's plans as the Democrats take control of the House in the new Congress. It is not clear if she will finish her term as speaker. The public will also be wondering when she will make a decision.
Despite the lack of clarity regarding her future as speaker, many Americans still feel frustrated by Pelosi's lack of answers.
