Washington, D.C.-- At an event hosted by BuzzFeed Tuesday night, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D) said she's a fan of Pope Francis.
"I like the Pope," Pelosi said. She added that "the Holy Spirit did a really good job this time" picking the Pope and that Francis is "very nun-like in his attitudes, in his statements."
Francis has gained a reputation as being somewhat progressive in his public statements on abortion, atheists and gays.
Pelosi is a practicing Roman Catholic.
