Democrats Fall Asleep During Pelosi Filibuster

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) staged an eight hour filibuster on the floor of the House of Representatives, urging House Speak Paul Ryan (R-WI) to stage a vote on DACA and legislation to protect Dreamers. Nancy Pelosi said "Why should we in the House be treated in such a humiliating way when the Republican Senate leader has given that opportunity in a bipartisan way to his membership? What’s wrong? There’s something wrong with this picture.”

Historians say it's the longest speech ever on the House floor. However, Pelosi's speech went SO long, some of her Democratic colleagues fell asleep during her marathon speech. Take a look at Democratic Congresswoman Matsui from California in the orange blazer at the top right of the screen.
