Even Democrats can’t defend Nancy Pelosi’s outrageous conduct any longer.
Her shocking attack against President Trump is completely insane.
Nancy Pelosi got destroyed by her own party. Her shocking lie went too far.
Nancy Pelosi has made it clear through her actions that she regarded the coronavirus crisis as the chance to make big Democratic strides towards socialism.
So far, Pelosi has not been able to accomplish her goal as Senate Republicans and President Trump have stood in her way.
Pelosi has been completely concentrating on bailing out the post office, abortion funding, bailing out Democratic states, and getting her “vote-by-mail” scheme.
She’s been concentrating on what the coronavirus can do for Democrats rather than what she can do for the people.
The Senate has been faithfully at their post during the coronavirus while Pelosi has been ditching her congressional work to talk to CNN.
Her petty personal attacks on President Trump aren’t even true.
“As far as the president is concerned, he’s our president and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group, morbidly obese, they say,” Pelosi said, talking to CNN about Trump’s hydroxychloroquine usage.
Trump is taking hydroxychloroquine with a doctor’s prescription and under a doctor’s care while Nancy Pelosi does not have a medical degree.
Her insult is factually and medically incorrect.
It was so bad that PolitiFact found it to be untrue because Trump would have to weigh far more to fit the classification of morbidly obese.
“Officially, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention does not define the threshold needed for someone to be considered ‘morbidly obese.’” PolitiFact wrote. “Instead, the CDC says that ‘Class 3’ obesity, sometimes categorized as ‘extreme’ or ‘severe’ obesity, is defined as having a body-mass index, or BMI, of 40 or higher. Other medical sources list a definition of ‘morbidly obese’ as equivalent to a BMI of 40 or higher.”
Trump’s weight and height are known from his physical exam from 2019 which Trump has released.
According to that report, Trump was 6 feet, 3 inches tall and 243 pounds.
“Officially, Trump’s height and weight would correlate to a BMI of 30.1, just a bit over the 30.0 level to be considered obese — the lowest of three levels. That is not high enough to count as Class 3 obesity.” PolitiFact continued.
Trump would have to gain almost a hundred pounds to be considered morbidly obese.
Nancy Pelosi was not just insulting Trump on his weight, she was being untruthful.
“I don’t respond to her, I think she’s a waste of time,” Trump said, responding to reporters’ questions on the subject.
Nancy Pelosi didn’t get her way with the coronavirus funding and now she’s responding like a spoiled child.
She needs to grow up, stop focusing on getting money for Democrats and get Congress back to work.
