President Trump and his political allies launched an attack on Nancy Pelosi Thursday, calling the Democratic House Speaker “crazy.” Trump spoke one day after he left a White House meeting with Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer in a staged walkout, demanding Congress end investigations into his presidency.
President Donald Trump: “So I walked into the Cabinet Room. You had the group—crying Chuck, crazy Nancy. I tell you what, I’ve been watching her, and I have—I have been watching her for a long period of time. She’s not the same person. She’s lost it.”
Trump’s attack on the House speaker came after Pelosi accused Trump of throwing a “temper tantrum” during Wednesday’s aborted meeting at the White House.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi: “Another temper tantrum. Again, I pray for the president of the United States. I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention, for the good of the country.”

This comes as a doctored video of Pelosi went viral in right-wing social media circles. The video, edited from an appearance by Pelosi this week at the Center for American Progress, was slowed down to 75% speed in order to make Pelosi sound as though she was slurring her words. By Thursday night, versions of the video had circulated to millions of social media users, many of whom commented that they believed Pelosi was drunk. The video was also shared by President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, who tweeted—and later deleted—the comment, “What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi? Her speech pattern is bizarre.” Meanwhile, President Trump retweeted a mashup video of Pelosi edited by the Fox Business channel with the caption, ”PELOSI STAMMERS THROUGH NEWS CONFERENCE.”
