Pelosi was running her mouth and Trump shut her down again.
Former President Donald Trump criticized former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat from California, for her recent comments about him being a “scared puppy” ahead of his arraignment in federal court. Trump addressed the issue on his Truth Social website, stating that he refrained from commenting on Pelosi’s previous strange story about her husband until now.
According to Fox, Pelosi had remarked that Trump looked like a “scared puppy” during his arrival at a D.C. courthouse for his arraignment on four charges related to alleged 2020 election interference. Trump, who is currently the 2024 GOP front-runner, pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights.
Trump disputed Pelosi’s characterization, arguing that the millions of people watching him on television didn’t see him as scared. He asserted that he wasn’t afraid and criticized Pelosi as a “Wicked Witch” with a troubled husband, who he believes will face consequences someday.
Trump wrote, “I wasn’t ‘scared’. Nevertheless, how mean a thing to say! She is a Wicked Witch whose husbands journey from hell starts and finishes with her. She is a sick & demented psycho who will someday live in HELL!”
Pelosi’s husband, Paul, was reportedly involved in a home invasion in San Francisco on Oct. 28, during which he was attacked by David DePape. DePape faces state charges of attempted murder and elder abuse, as well as federal charges for kidnapping. Paul Pelosi also made headlines in May 2022 for causing a drunk driving crash, leading to a jail sentence and probation.
The attack on Paul Pelosi fueled right-wing conspiracy theories, which subsided after video and audio evidence from the incident was released by the court in February.
