House Speaker Nancy Pelosi managed to insult President Donald Trump for the second time in two days by using what can ,
Only be termed “fake concern.”When a reporter asked Trump about Pelosi’s comments on Tuesday, he wasn’t happy. “I don’t respond to her. I think she’s a waste of time,” Trump said, according to Bloomberg White House reporter Josh Wingrove.
Trump later called Pelosi a “sick woman” with “a lot of problems. A lot of mental problems,” according to Bloomberg’s Jordan Fabian. Then when discussing the Russia probe, Trump called Pelosi a “sick woman”
“She has a lot of problems. A lot of mental problems,” he told reporters , Pelosi pretended to be surprised by Trump’s reaction when MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asked her about it a short time later, but also twisted the knife a little deeper.
“I didn’t know that he would be so sensitive, he’s always talking about other people’s weight,” she said, before adding, “I think he should recognize his words weigh a ton.”

“I don’t respond to her. I think she’s a waste of time” Then when discussing the Russia probe, Trump called Pelosi a “sick woman” “She has a lot of problems. A lot of mental problems,” he told reporters .

Pelosi said she would prefer that the nation’s leader not rely on a treatment for the coronavirus
