(FreedomJournal.org)- Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued a low blow on Tuesday when she described President Donald Trump as “morbidly obese” during a news segment in which she also criticized the president’s decision to take hydroxychloroquine as a precaution against contracting the Chinese coronavirus.
Pelosi made the comments to CNN’s Anderson Cooper in a visible attempt at whipping up the angry Democratic base, and when journalists prompted President Trump to respond, he initially declined.
“I don’t respond to her, I think she’s a waste of time,” he said.
But Trump being Trump meant he couldn’t hold back, and criticized the House Speaker and her Democrat colleagues for pushing the investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia which turned out to be a hoax.
“These people are sick. Pelosi is a sick woman, she’s got a lot of problems, a lot of mental problems,” Trump said. “We’re dealing with people that have to get their act together for the good of the country.”
President Trump also defended his decision to take hydroxychloroquine as prescribed by his doctor, a medication widely used in Africa to prevent people from contracting malaria. Democrats have repeatedly attacked the president for suggesting the drug could potentially help people, despite doctors all over the world reporting positive results.
Trump even said early on that remdesivir, another drug, could potentially offer positive results in the treatment of coronavirus. The media attacked him, but the drug was recently approved by the FDA for use in treating patients with coronavirus.
The president told the media that taking hydroxychloroquine should be an individual decision for people to make, and once again made it clear that he isn’t endorsing it as a definitive fix.
“I think it gives you an additional level of safety,” he said, before saying it is “an individual decision to make.”
And there you have it. The Democrats say Trump wants you to drink bleach, when all he did was ponder the results of tests that involve injecting disinfectant into the lungs. The Democrats say Trump is telling you to take hydroxychloroquine, but the president says it’s a decision you should make yourself.
