Speaker Nancy Pelosi doubled down on her insults to President Donald Trump on Wednesday, saying she was giving him a ‘dose of his own medicine’ and comparing him to a little kid who comes in with doggy do on his shoes. 

The speaker defended calling the president ‘morbidly obese’ earlier this week, saying she was quoting factual information from doctors. 

‘I didn’t say anything about the president. I gave him a dose of his own medicine,’ she said when asked about her remarks during her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill. 

‘I was only quoting what doctors had said about him and I was being factual in a very sympathetic way.’

President Trump and Speaker Pelosi have had a contentious relationship going back to when Democrats retook control of the House after the 2018 midterm election

President Trump and Speaker Pelosi have had a contentious relationship going back to when Democrats retook control of the House after the 2018 midterm election. Their first Oval Office meeting resulted in the two leaders engaging in a bickering back-and-forth – all in front of the cameras. From there, things got worse. She eventually called a formal impeachment inquiry against him – Trump was acquitted by the Senate – and he refused to shake her hand at his State of the Union address while she ripped up the text of his remarks. 

The rhetoric has show no signs of cooling off. 

‘The things he says are so inappropriate for a president of the United States. The comments he makes about women,’ Pelosi said on Wednesday, shaking her head.  

She didn’t let up in her criticism and name-calling. Trump has not held back on the speaker. During a visit to the Capitol on Tuesday he said she has ‘mental problems’ and he often refers to her as ‘Crazy’ Nancy Pelosi.

She described Trump as ‘a child who comes in with mud on his pants’ when she was asked about his propensity to hurl insults at people – usually via Twitter. 

‘It’s like a child who comes in with mud on their pants or something,’ Pelosi said. ‘He comes in with doggy doo on his shoes and everybody who works with him has that on their shoes too for a very long time to come.’ 

She accused him of making up facts although she did not refer to a specific instance.  

‘Look up the word ‘confabulator” Pelosi said of Trump. It means ‘to fill in gaps in one’s memory with fabrications that one believes to be facts.’

‘He just really doesn’t even know what the truth is. And just says anything. And because he says it, then he believes it. But you know what? Forget about him,’ she said

Pelosi shrugged off his insults of her. 

‘I don’t take offense at anything. The president says things about me all the time, I say one thing about him and it’s like, ‘oh,’ some equivalence here,’ she said. 

Their latest battle began this week when President Trump revealed he is taking hydroxychloroquine as a protective measure against exposure to the coronavirus and Pelosi said the ‘morbidly obese’ president was putting his health at risk with the medication.

 ‘He’s our president and 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, what is morbidly obese, they say. So, I think that it’s not a good idea,’ she told CNN on Monday night.

Trump, in response to that, called her a ‘sick woman’ with a lot of ‘mental problems.’

‘Pelosi is a sick woman. She’s got a lot of problems, a lot of mental problems,’ President Trump said during a visit to Capitol Hill where he had lunch with Senate Republicans. 

And Pelosi responded she didn’t know he’d be ‘so sensitive’ about his weight. 

‘I didn’t know that he would be so sensitive. He’s always talking about other people’s avoirdupois, their weight, their pounds,’ Pelosi said during an interview Tuesday with MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.

‘I think he should recognize that his words weigh a ton. Instead of telling people to put Lysol into their lungs or taking a medication that has not been approved except under certain circumstances, he should be saying what your previous guest mentioned — things that would help people,’ she said.

The speaker was referring to President Trump’s suggestion last month that injecting disinfectants, which can kill the coronavirus, into a person could be a possible cure.

At his last physical, Trump, 73, weighed 243 pounds as reported to be 6 feet 3 inches. That would put his body mass index at 30.4, which narrowly qualifies him in the ‘obese’ category.

Trump, known for his love of fast food, has a history of mocking other people’s physiques.

At a campaign rally in Manchester, N.H., last August, Trump said of one supporter in the crowd: ‘That guy’s got a serious weight problem! Go home. Start exercising.’

The president, when he owned the Miss Universe competition, referred to contestant  Alicia Machado as ‘Miss Piggy.’

Trump’s health has come into question as the coronavirus pandemic infected more than 1.5 million Americans and killed more than 90,000 people. 

The president has come under heavy criticism from doctors, Democrats, media commentators and foreign countries after his shocking announcement on Monday he is taking a daily dose of hydroxychloroquine as a precaution against the coronavirus.

Trump has previously touted hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus ‘cure’, but the FDA has warned the drug – which is typically used to treat malaria – has a range of possibly lethal side-effects and has not been proven as an effective COVID-19 treatment.

Several studies are underway into the drug’s effectiveness in treating coronavirus and whether it can also protect against the disease, but so far there is no clear evidence it is beneficial. 

The FDA warned on April 30th that hydroxychloroquine caused heart problems and said it should only be used to treat the coronavirus on patients already in the hospital. 

‘You’re not going to get sick or die,’ Trump said on Monday about taking the medication. ‘I’ve taken it about for a week and a half now. And I’m still here.’

At least two White House staffers tested positive for the coronavirus this month, both of whom had access to the president: his Navy valet who serves him meals and Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary Katie Miller, who speaks for the Coronavirus Task Force and is married to Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller.

President Trump his daily dosage at his Cabinet meeting at the White House on Tuesday.

‘I’ve had no impact from it. I feel the same. I haven’t changed I don’t think too much,’ he said.

PRESIDENT TRUMP VS. SPEAKER PELOSI: THEIR GREATEST BATTLES

May 2020

Speaker Nancy Pelosi  compares President Donald Trump to a little kid who comes in with doggy do on his shoes.

She describes Trump as ‘a child who comes in with mud on his pants’ when she was asked about his propensity to hurl insults at people – usually via Twitter. 

‘It’s like a child who comes in with mud on their pants or something,’ Pelosi said. ‘He comes in with doggy doo on his shoes and everybody who works with him has that on their shoes too for a very long time to come.’ 

Pelosi says she didn’t know President Donald Trump would be ‘so sensitive’ about his weight after she calls him ‘morbidly obese’ and he shoots back she has ‘mental problems.’  The two were in a war of words after she questioned his taking of hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against the coronavirus.

‘I didn’t know that he would be so sensitive. He’s always talking about other people’s avoirdupois, their weight, their pounds,’ she said.

‘Pelosi is a sick woman. She’s got a lot of problems, a lot of mental problems,’ President Trump said after she questioned his weight. 

February 2020

After the impeachment inquiry was over, President Trump mocks Speaker Pelosi’s faith at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C. 

‘I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong. Nor do I like people who say I pray for you when they know that’s not so. So many people have been hurt, and we can’t let that go on,’ he said. 

Pelosi, a devout Catholic, has repeatedly said she prays for the president. She sat at the head table during Trump’s remarks and shakes her head. She purses her lips a few times as he spoke. 

Also, President Trump refuses to shake Speaker Pelosi’s hand earlier that month when he arrived in the House chamber to give his annual State of the Union address. 

At the end of the speech she tears up the text of his remarks and throws the ripped pages on the floor.

May 2019 

Speaker Pelosi suggests President Trump’s behavior is so erratic it requires an ‘intervention’ from his family and staff after he walks out of an infrastructure meeting at the White House with Democrats. She says he acted like a ‘baby’ in their sit-down.

‘I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country,’ she said. 

He questions her intellectual capacities after he walks out of meeting and straight into White House Rose Garden to complain about her to reporters.

‘I’ll tell you what, I’ve been watching her, and I have been watching her for a long period of time, she’s not the same person. She’s lost it,’ Trump said.

‘I haven’t changed very much. Been very consistent. I am an extremely stable genius,’ he notes.
