Pelosi is a disgrace…
She should’ve thought twice before saying what she did. As you may already know, Monday afternoon House Speaker Nancy Pelosi decided to get smart and suggested that someone as “morbidly obese” as President Trump should think twice before taking hydroxychloroquine to prevent COVID-19.
“I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group, and in his, shall we say, weight group: ‘Morbidly obese,’ they say,” says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Pres. Trump’s revelation he is taking hydroxychloroquine. pic.twitter.com/0ImjpEjg9q

Then today, according to the C-SPAN, President Trump decided to fire back at Pelosi for her highly inappropriate remarks. “I don’t respond to her. I think she’s a waste of time…Pelosi is a sick woman. She’s got a lot of problems a lot of mental problems,” Trump said.

Now, it looks like Pelosi might have had a little too much to drink over the weekend because she’s doubled down on her attack against the president.
After getting asked about her initial remarks by Nicolle Wallace, Pelosi responded, “I didn’t know that he would be so sensitive. He’s always talking about other people’s avoir du poids, their weight, their pounds.”
Adding, “I don’t want to spend any more time on his distraction because, as you see in the last couple of days, so much of the time has been spent on what he said. Rather than that, I think he should recognize his words weigh a ton. Instead of telling people to put Lysol into their lungs or taking a medication that’s not been approved except under certain circumstances. He should be saying that your previous guest mentioned things that will help people.”
Only time will tell if President Trump will respond to Pelosi’s latest statements. Pelosi’s aide recently informed media sources that President Trump hasn’t spoke to Pelosi directly in nearly six months do to her outlandish behavior as House Speaker.
