On Fox & Friends Monday, the President had some thoughts on Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden.
About the Speaker of the House’s claims on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday that he’d denied the gravity of the coronavirus and waited too late to beef up federal response — a mistake she called “deadly” — Trump didn’t mince words.
And also, apparently, he’s a dog person:
“It’s a sad thing. Look — she’s a sick puppy in my opinion. She really is. She’s got a lot of problems. And that’s a horrible thing to say. Especially when…I stopped…some very, very infected, very, very sick people — thousands coming in from China — long earlier than anybody thought, including the experts. Nobody thought we should do it except me. And I stopped everybody. We stopped it cold. … And Dr. Fauci said the other day, if those people came in — if I didn’t do that, you would’ve had deaths like you have never seen before. … And, you know, she doesn’t mention that. And that was early.”
The Prez offered that Nancy was busy doing other, goofier things:
“And don’t forget — she was playing the impeachment game. You know, her game where she ended up looking like a fool. She was doing nothing but, all she did for the first long time was ‘Impeach, impeach.’ This went on for years, I mean if you think about it. That’s all she did. She didn’t do anything. She couldn’t get bills passed. She’s controlled by the radical Left — by AOC plus three. And…for her to make a statement like that — I saw that — I thought it was a disgrace. I think it’s a disgrace to her country, her family.”
Does Pelosi pray? If so, the Commander-in-Chief doubts he makes her cut:
“And I guess now, when she says, ‘Oh, I pray for the President. I pray for the President so much. Well, I don’t think that’s true.”
It was a bold move to accuse him of not taking things seriously early on. She must not remember that, just a few weeks ago, she did this:

Maybe she has amnesia. Trump sure thinks somethin’ ain’t right:
“[T]here’s something wrong with the woman. Because she knows what we’ve done.”
“And then you look at San Francisco, how her area where she lives has become like a slum. It’s a slum. And she should focus on that. Of course, she lives in a beautiful house over the ocean. But her area that she’s in charge of has become, from being one of the best in the whole country, it’s become a slum. And they don’t do anything about it. They leave it there. In fact, the federal government, we may get involved and take over that area and clean it up. And the homeless are being…it’s such a mess, it’s so bad. And yet, she’ll sit there and complain. All she did was focus on impeachment. She didn’t focus on anything to do with pandemics.”
Still, the Leader of the Free World actually thanked Pelosi:
“She focused on impeachment, and she lost. And she looked like a fool. And frankly, it unified our party. … [M]y poll numbers are the highest they’ve ever been because of her.”
That was nice.
But Trump dropped a bomb on 2020 hopeful Joe Biden:
“If sleepy Joe was president, he wouldn’t even know what’s going on.”
I’d say there’s a chance.
“Everybody knows that,” the President continued.
All in all, Donald believes the government’s being pretty handy right about now:
“We have taken this thing and done a hell of a job.”
Of course, the virus is doing one, too. Stay strong, America.
