Original Message The House Speaker touted the president's efforts to reduce the cost of living crisis plaguing Americans, but the audience seemed unenthusiastic

It was evocative of Jeb Bush's 'please clap' moment in his failed 2016 campaign

Pelosi's awkward moment was part of a larger celebration by Democrats to push Biden's accomplishments ahead of the 2022 midterms

Nancy Pelosi awkwardly struggled to excite a crowd celebrating the signing of Joe Biden's Inflation Reduction Act on Tuesday.

Touting the president's reconciliation bill as the path to drive down rampant inflation, the House Speaker was met with a lukewarm reception by the audience, who failed to cheer following her praises for Biden.

'Mr. President, thank you for unifying and inspiring a vision of a stronger, fairer, safer future for all our children. Your extraordinary leadership has made this glorious day possible,' Pelosi said, followed by a moment of silence from the crowd.

'That's an applause line,' she followed up, signaling the crowd to cheer.

While Pelosi experienced her own flop on Tuesday, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was by her side to play off the awkward moment.

After she asked the crowd to cheer, Pelosi said: 'And let us salute Leader Schumer [and] his colleagues in the Senate for their extraordinary leadership and the success in bringing this bill to the floor.'

Schumer replied with: 'That's an applause line!'
