House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was asked to respond live on air to social media posts and statements about her by Donald Trump, that Trump sent directly to ABC host George Stephanopoulos, right before Stephanopoulos interviewed Speaker Pelosi this morning.
The post that was directed at Speaker Pelosi by Trump read, “George @GStephanopoulos, ask Crazy Nancy why she allowed Adam “Shifty” Schiff to totally make up my conversation with the Ukrainian President & read his false words to Congress and the world, as though I said it? He got caught! Ask why hearing was most unfair & biased in history?”
Speaker Pelosi and Stephanopoulos also watched footage of Trump saying that she will, “go down as one of the worst Speakers in the history of our country,” before she responded. “It’s Sunday morning. I’d like to talk about some more pleasant subjects than the erratic nature of this president of the United States, but he has to know that every knock from him is a boost,” Speaker Pelosi said, before responding.
“When he crossed that line on Ukraine, he violated the constitution in a way that could not be ignored. Again, I don’t like to spend too much time, on his crazy Tweets. Because everything he says, is a projection. When he calls somebody crazy, he knows that he is,” Speaker Pelosi said.
“Everything he says, you can just translate it back to who he is,” Speaker Pelosi continued. “But again, its Sunday morning. Let’s be optimistic about the future. A future that will not have Donald Trump in the White House, on way or the other.” What an amazing response. Like usual, you can see her comments in the footage below.
