When he was asked about his personal attack on Speaker Pelosi, Trump responded by whining about the “horrible things” Pelosi said about him.
Trump is upset because Nancy Pelosi was mean to him
Trump said, “This shows how fake you and the news are. When you say a personal attack. Didn’t you hear what she said about me long before I went after her? Didn’t you hear? She made horrible statements. She knows they’re not true. She said terrible things. I just responded in kind. Look, you think Nancy is the same as she was. She’s. Maybe we can all say that. I think right now we are — I’m only speaking for myself. I want to do what’s good for the country. I think Nancy Pelosi is not helping this country. I think the Democrats are obstructionists.”
The horrible, horrible thing that Pelosi said that first set Trump off was the factually accurate statement that Donald Trump is engaged in a cover-up. Pelosi really pushed Trump over the brink with the suggestion that he is having mental health issues and requires an intervention.
Trump, who likes to talk tough at his rallies, was crying a river because Nancy Pelosi was mean to him by pointing out that a president is an unindicted co-conspirator in the Stormy Daniels hush money cover-up is engaging in a cover-up of potential presidential obstruction of justice.
The snowflake president can dish it out, but he sure can’t take it.
