After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressional Democrats stormed out of a White House meeting on Syria Wednesday, President Trump suggested that she is either mentally unwell or unpatriotic.
“Nancy Pelosi needs help fast! There is either something wrong with her ‘upstairs,’ or she just plain doesn’t like our great Country,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “She had a total meltdown in the White House today. It was very sad to watch. Pray for her, she is a very sick person!”
For her part, Pelosi told reporters, “I pray for the president all the time and I tell him that. I pray for his safety and that of his family. Now we have to pray for his health because this was a very serious meltdown on the part of the president.”
Pelosi had reportedly stood up and abandoned the meeting after Trump described her as either a “third-rate” politician (according to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer) or a “third-grade” politician (according to Pelosi). “Goodbye, we’ll see you at the polls,” Trump reportedly said.
