Trump Shreds Pelosi Over Coronavirus Criticism: She's a 'Sick Puppy'
Pelosi accused Trump of downplaying the public health crisis
During a call-in interview on “Fox & Friends," Trump responded to Pelosi’s criticism:
“It’s a sad thing,” Trump said.
“She’s a sick puppy, in my opinion. She’s got a lot of problems.”
Pelosi accused Trump of downplaying the public health crisis, saying that “his denial at the beginning was deadly” on CNN’s “State of the Union.
"When he made the other day when he was signing the bill, he said just think 20 days ago everything was great," Pelosi said.
"No, everything wasn't great," she added.
"We had nearly 500 cases and 17 deaths already. And in that 20 days because we weren't prepared, we now have 2,000 deaths and 100,000 cases,” Pelosi said.
“I tried to be respectful of his enthusiasm for his idea,” Pelosi told Maddow on Friday evening, according to The Washington Examiner.
"But I did tell him that it wasn’t going to work, that we will have a voice vote, and it wasn’t going to hold us up too much."
On Monday, Trump accused the House speaker if ignoring his initial decision to restrict air travel from China, saying failing to do so would have resulted in deaths “like no one has ever seen.”
Trump also accused Pelosi of wasting her time on his impeachment.
“I think it’s a disgrace to her country, her family,” Trump said of Pelosi’s critical remarks.

“What a horrible statement to make.”
“All she did was focus on impeachment. She didn’t focus on anything having to do with pandemics,” Trump said later.
“And she lost, and she looked like a fool.”
As Neon Nettle reported earlier this week, Pelosi pushed through $25 million in taxpayer money for the Kennedy Arts Center into the emergency coronavirus stimulus package.
The Senate passed the massive $2 trillion compromise package by a vote of 96-0, ending days of deadlock and sending the bill to the House of Representatives.
Speaker Pelosi said the House would soon take up the historic measure to bring relief to American families, individuals, small businesses, and larger corporations "with strong bipartisan support."
