WATCH: Biden tells Pelosi “I admire the devil out of you” after telling her “Nancy, I love you. There’s no one I’d rather work with than you”

During Thursday’s 2021 Issues Conference, President Biden told House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “Nancy, I love you. There’s no one I’d rather work with than you.”

Biden then used the eye-opening phrase “I admire the devil out of you.”

Prior to Biden’s compliment, Pelosi had discussed how much her grandchildren liked Biden.

Pelosi told a story of how they would use a “magic word” phrase “open Biden” instead of “open sesame.”
