(ReliableNews.org) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ramped up her attacks on President Donald Trump since his COVID-19 diagnosis on October 2. Now, she’s taken it a step further.
The day Trump revealed his diagnosis to the public, Pelosi said she wasn’t surprised he got sick. According to the congresswoman, he somehow invited the virus to infect him. When the president left Walter Reed Medical Center on October 5, the speaker wasn’t happy he was back in the White House and doing well. Nope, during a phone call with the Democratic caucus a day later, she insinuated the president had ‘roid rage.
Pelosi reportedly told fellow lawmakers that the president was behaving erratically and said some people believe “steroids have an impact on your thinking.” She was referencing side effects from high doses of the medicine that’s known to cause mood swings in some people.
The speaker’s attacks earlier in the week were nothing compared to the one she launched against him on Friday, December 9.
During a press conference, Pelosi unveiled legislation that will give Congress more power to decide whether a president should be kicked out of office. She wants to be able to intervene in the 25th Amendment and declare the commander-in-chief unfit.
There’s a problem with her plot.
According to the Constitution, Vice President Mike Pence would have to trigger the 25th Amendment. A majority of the president’s cabinet would then have to agree the president is unfit. There is no law that allows Pelosi or other members of Congress to do it.
Her entire press conference was a publicity stunt. She is just harassing Trump with nonsense again. What’s worse is she is doing it as he recovers from the coronavirus. What kind of person does that? Not a nice one, that’s for sure.
