California congresswoman and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has been a significant thorn in the side of Donald Trump. She now has garnered the President’s attention more than ever now that she has started an impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump.
Trump has punched back against Pelosi in any way he can. His latest gambit finds him criticizing her for the current homeless problem in her district. During a Monday night rally in Lexington, Kentucky, the President said Pelosi she should go back home to California.
Campaigning for Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin, Trump told rally-goers, “What’s happened in San Francisco and what’s happened to many other places run by the radical left Democrats, it’s unbelievable.”
He then had some advice for the Speaker of the House. According to Trump, “Nancy ought to stop wasting time, go back to her district in San Francisco, help the homeless, get rid of the drugs, get rid of the needles that are lying all over the street, and all the things that are washing into the ocean through their storm sewer system.”
The President also took aim at Pelosi’s involvement in the impeachment inquiry. “She’s wasting all of her time,” he continued. “The media and the Democrats have launched an even more brazen assault on our nation with the deranged, hyper-partisan impeachment witch hunt.”
Pelosi isn’t likely to take Trump’s words to heart. She recently told Stephen Colbert, “I prayed for the United States of America. Really … it’s very sad. We don’t want to impeach a president. We don’t want the reality that a president has done something that is in violation of the Constitution.”
