WATCH: Trump Says Nancy Pelosi Disgraced Her Family by Criticizing His Coronavirus Response
Donald Trump and the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi have had a contentious year. Pelosi, of course, was at the head of Trump’s impeachment hearings. She also got under the President’s skin by ripping up a copy of his State of the Union speech.
And over the weekend, Pelosi was very critical of Trump’s repeated late measures in combating the COVID-19 pandemic. The President talked a fair amount about the Speaker during a Monday morning appearance on Fox & Friends. According to Trump, Pelosi disgraced her country and family by finding fault with his leadership.
When asked about Pelosi’s critique, Trump responded:
“Don’t forget, she was playing the impeachment game. Her game where she ended up looking like a fool. She was doing nothing but — all she did for the first long time was impeach, impeach, impeach. This went on for years, if you think about it. That’s all she did. She didn’t do anything. She couldn’t get bills. passed. She’s controlled by the radical Left, by AOC plus three. And for her to make a statement like that, I thought it was a disgrace. I think that it’s a disgrace to her country, her family.”
The President continued his rant by blaming Pelosi for the condition of San Francisco, part of her congressional district. “The federal government, we may get involved and take over that area and clean it up,” he said. “It’s such a mess , it’s so bad, and yet she will sit there and complain. All she did was focus on impeachment. She didn’t focus on anything having to do pandemics. She focused on impeachment and she lost! And she looked like a fool.”
