House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi turned into a political Ann Landers on Tuesday, dishing out advice to Democratic lawmakers on how to deal with Americans who elected Donald Trump president.

"The way I told my members: It's like telling your friend the guy she's dating is a jerk. You can't tell her that. She has to find out for herself," Pelosi told reporters on Capitol Hill, CNN reports.

"You can give her clues and then eventually one thing will lead to another, she'll come to her conclusion. But if you tell her right up front, you'll lose a friend. So we're not interested in losing any friends.

"Let them find out. They made a judgment and they're not willing to walk away from their own judgment."

Matt Gorman, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, shot back:

"Leave it to a San Francisco liberal to belittle and condescend to the 63 million voters who called for real change last November. Pelosi's comments underscore just how hard it'll be for this out-of-touch party to compete across the country in 2018."
