Pelosi Responds to Trump’s Normandy Outburst: ‘I’m Done With Him’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is finally responding to attacks made by President Donald Trump from the American cemetery in Normandy. Pelosi previously declined to criticize the president when asked about his remarks while she was still overseas.

With the pale white tombstones marking graves of fallen American troops dotting the field behind him, Trump ripped Pelosi as a “disaster” and dubbed her “Nervous Nancy” ahead of a ceremony marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion that helped turn the tide in the European theater against Nazi Germany in World War II.

Pelosi finally responded on Tuesday when asked about the incident by CNN’s Manu Raju, and she didn’t hold back.

“Well, what bothers me more is that we’re talking about that instead of how to reduce the national debt,” the speaker said to applause from the audience, before explaining she has long declined to criticize the president of the United States while traveling overseas with a Congressional delegation.

“The president took a different tack,” she added. “I don’t think it — I’m done with him. I don’t even want to talk about him.”

Asked how she can continue to work with the president when he attacks her overseas, Pelosi responded with a single sentence: “I just consider the source.”

“My stock goes up every time he attacks me, so what can I say?” she added. “But let’s not spend too much time on that, because that’s his victory.”

Pelosi dubbed Trump “the diverter-in-chief,” expressing her view that he uses explosive remarks to change the public conversation from one topic to another.

Pressed on how Trump’s outburst was seemingly triggered by Pelosi’s leaked comments on wanting Trump in prison, the Speaker maintained her belief that the venue of Trump’s response was inappropriate.

“I don’t care what motivates him, and we never know,” she answered. “But in front of the tombstones of our fallen, when we’re there to observe the 75th anniversary of Normandy, you be the judge as to whether you think it’s appropriate for the president to take that tack.”

“That’s all I’m gonna say about it,” she added. “I don’t care what you ask anymore, I’m not gonna talk about him anymore.”

That is quite hilarious…..while he was attending D-Day ceremonies…..she was saying he should be in prison. She knows when you attack him or his family, he is going to attack back….something Bush never did and why his approval rating was so low at the end. It’s why so many of us in fly over country voted for the Donald…..along with we believed he was going to change the direction the democrats and Obama had us headed….. Thank you President Trump

According to Pelosi, the President is always wrong and does nothing right. She’s the poster girl for negative politics. Trump has accomplished many things that he promised when running including, recently, solving the Immigrant invasion. Of course, according to Nancy, he didn’t do it the right way.
Who can stand her.

Trump is an arrogant and phony piece of garbage who has betrayed his country to the Russians for his own personal gain and has betrayed millions of people who voted for him with his tax cuts that have created NO new good paying jobs. Pelosi is right about him.
