Trump Accuses Reporter of Being ‘Fake’ for Asking About His Attacks on Pelosi

President Donald Trump is feuding with Nancy Pelosi after he walked out of a meeting with Congressional Democrats earlier this week because she accused him of a “cover-up.”

It was hardly the first time that a meeting with the Democratic leader has devolved into insults, but this time, there was a new angle: Trump refused to work with Democrats unless they stop investigating him.

During a press conference after the meeting, Pelosi said she hopes Trump’s family or staff will stage an “intervention” and that she prays for the president.

Meanwhile, the president has been attacking Pelosi at every chance he gets. After years of not giving her a nickname, Trump referred to the Speaker of the House as “Crazy Nancy” this week.

On Twitter, he shared a heavily-edited video of Pelosi stammering during a press conference. The president has a long history of making personal attacks but, when asked about those attacks on Friday, Trump didn’t seem to want to talk.

When asked what he hopes to accomplish with personal attacks on Pelosi, Trump shot back, “This just shows how fake you and the news are. When you say a ‘personal attack,’ did you hear what she said about me long before I went after her?”

He continued, “She made horrible statements, she knows they’re not true. She said terrible things, I just responded in kind.”

President Trump and Pelosi will have a bit of breathing room to cool down after a whirlwind week in Washington that featured Trump telling his former White House counsel to ignore a Congressional subpoena, increasing calls for impeachment, and constant barbs between Trump and the Speaker.

Congress is out of session next week, and when they get back, they’re probably going to resume working on an infrastructure bill. Trump has been saying for months that he wants to do infrastructure, but that agenda has been upended by his relationship with Democrats controlling the House.

What do you think?

Funny how #FakeNews says Trump caused the problem while ignoring what Pelosi said first and what Dems have been screaming since they lost the election in 2016. Never in the history of this country has a president been so maligned, called horrid names, been scrutinized down to taking a pill for hair retention for goodness sakes, like Trump. I’m glad he calls these people what they are! #FakeNews = #EnemyOfThePeople

The President DID NOT share an edited account of Pelosi’s ramblings! In fact, NBC (the most left of the alphabet networks), has debunked this claim. The clip he shared was full on Nancy slurring her words in real time! The woman herself, truly needs to be committed…for senility or drug addiction!

Let’s not forget. It was Pelosi who accused Trump of “covering up”, first! This was long before the now infamous encounter over infrastructure. Nasty Nancy OWNS this and her failure to lead the House!!!

Your logic and diction sound so familiar….is that you Donald?

It’s definitely doctored. I call BS on your NBC claim. Got a link?

Here’s your link, Michael: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1009551 I know you have a limited attention span, Michael, so make sure you read down to the following paragraph: “But as NBC explains, the “doctored” and “fake” descriptions appeared to be wrong. While a digitial forensics expert did determine that a different video starring Pelosi was altered to make it appear that she was slurring her words, the video posted by Trump does not appear to have been “altered for speed,” as the speaker’s daughter alleged. I’ve seen enough of Nasty Nancy to know that SHE’S the one who needs the intervention. She has difficulty… Read more »

Except you left out the more relevant next part after it says the video was not altered by speed: “Unlike the video referred to in The Washington Post article, I don’t believe that this video montage was slowed down. This montage, however, is highly deceptive as it compiles in rapid succession relatively small verbal stumbles in an attempt to portray Speaker Pelosi as stumbling through her press conference,” Farid told NBC News. “The original C-SPAN video clearly shows that this montage that the president tweeted is not an accurate depiction of her press conference,” Farid said Fools find it difficult… Read more »

“Fools find it difficult to prove others are fools. Stop trying to spread lies, fool.” Are you sure you thought that one through?

Those who remain quiet and are thought of as fools will usually open their mouth and confirm it.

I would assume a member here is capable of research – I’ll be nice this once. I don’t do homework for lefties or anyone else that is too lazy to even attempt to find the info. You get this one only!

“Video on C-SPAN of Pelosi’s full weekly legislative briefing with reporters Thursday shows Pelosi making the same stumbles seen in the clip tweeted by the president. The briefing lasted about 20 minutes.”

What’s sad is the left is still spewing the lie because #OrangeManBad BS. It’s disgusting!

Yeah, right. Except the proof is in the original video, now playing.

Becky , not sure what you are trying to say.

WellHungChad

It doesn’t matter. I’ve seen enough of Nasty Nancy’s blathering that I don’t need anyone telling me whether the video is fake or not. There’s enough Nancy gaffs out there for any sane observer to question her sanity…or at least her sobriety!

Michael

Ahh, so your first paragraph is made up lies and your second one is incoherent rambling.

Michael

How easily you fall for lies. Wake up fool!

There is an apparent benefit to being played for a fool. You & I don’t see it, but they must see it as when each lie is exposed, they return to the same sources for more lies. Make America SANE Again.

I refer to your words again…”Fools find it difficult to prove others are fools.” Must be frustrating for you. If only Chad would “wake up”!

I pray The Chad* doesn’t walk around dazed and confused and slur his words in HIS old age.

Michael, I think that she is saying that she hasn’t had her morning covfefe yet.

I hope that stops the confusion.
