Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren likened the mainstream media's praise for Nancy Pelosi with their reaction to former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. 

On "Fox & Friends," co-host Jedediah Bila noted the "media love-fest" over Pelosi's return as House Speaker and asked why coverage of political achievements of Republican women, like Nikki Haley and Sarah Palin, were not presented similarly in past years.

Lahren said the media was clearly "hyping" Pelosi on Thursday in an attempt to make her "seem hip, cool and relevant again."

"They did the same with Hillary Clinton. It didn't work," she responded. 

Brian Kilmeade said the coverage of Pelosi seemed "ebullient," with some comparing the power held by the longtime San Francisco representative to the President of the United States. 

Pelosi spoke on the House floor Thursday after being elected as House Speaker for a second time, calling for greater bipartisan cooperation in Congress.

"And in that spirit, Democrats will be offering the Senate Republican Appropriations [Committee] legislation to reopen the government later today," Pelosi said.

The government has been partially shut down for 13 days over Democrats and Republicans being unable to compromise on funding for President Trump's long-promised border wall. Mitch McConnell said the Senate would not consider the House legislation, since President Trump would not sign it.
