Nancy Pelosi says President Trump’s attacks on “Morning Joe” don’t pass the smell test.
The House Speaker said Trump is stepping in "doggy doo” by spreading wacky conspiracy theories about the death of a Florida woman who once worked for Joe Scarborough.
Pelosi suggested the claims demean the office of the presidency.
“He comes in with doggy-doo on his shoes and everybody who works with him has that on their shoes too,” Pelosi said in her weekly press conference.
Trump, stung by Scarborough’s critical coverage, has repeatedly suggested there was something fishy about the 2001 death of an intern in the then-congressman’s Florida office.
Authorities ruled Lori Klausutis, 28, died after she passed out due to an undiagnosed heart condition and hit her head on a desk.
Trump calls the death a “cold case” and has called on police to probe Scarborough, without providing any evidence to tie him to the death.
Besides slamming Trump over the Scarborough attack, Pelosi defended her attack on him for taking the unproven drug hydroxychloroquine to ward off coronavirus.
She called the president “morbidly obese" and said he shouldn’t be taking the drug because it has no proven value against COVID-19 and has nasty side-effects especially for those who are overweight or have heart woes.
"I gave him a dose of his own medicine,” Pelosi said. “I was only quoting what doctors had said about him and I was being factual in a very sympathetic way.”
Pelosi also demanded that embattled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo testify before the House of Representatives about his role in fast-tracking $6 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia.
Pelosi called it “outrageous” that Pompeo invoked “emergency” to send the advanced weaponry to the oil-rich ally over the objections of Congress.
She also wants the top diplomat to answer questions about the ouster of the State Department Inspector General.
Fired watchdog Steve Linick was dumped as he reportedly issued reports criticizing the Saudi arms sales as well as Pompeo’s alleged use of aides to do chores like walking his dog and taking clothes to the dry cleaners.
