Nancy Pelosi called President Trump 'morbidly obese' while discussing his health

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi blasted President Donald Trump on Monday night, claiming he is "morbidly obese."

Pelosi made the bizarre claims during an appearance on CNN with host Anderson Cooper.

The speaker was responding to reports that President Trump revealed he is taking malaria drug hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against the coronavirus.

Cooper asked Pelosi if she was "concerned" about the president taking the drug.

She replied by claiming Trump's "age group" and "weight group" put him in a high-risk health category.

“He’s our president and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group — morbidly obese, they say,” Pelosi told Cooper.

Cooper appeared taken aback by Pelosi's answer and paused momentarily before moving on to another subject.


New York's University of Rochester Medical Center defines morbid obesity as "a serious health condition."

Those who are morbidly obese struggle with basic physical functions such as breathing or walking due to their excess body weight.

Presdient Trump revealed Monday that he has been taking the drug as a COVID-19 preventative treatment for "a couple of weeks."

"A lot of good things have come out about the [hydroxychloroquine],” he told reporters gathered in the White House cabinet room.

"You’d be surprised at how many people are taking it, especially the front-line workers before you catch it.

"The front-line workers — many, many are taking it," Trump continued.

"I happened to be taking it. I happened to be taking it. Hydroxychloroquine.

"Right now, yeah. A couple of weeks ago, I started taking it.

"If it is not good, I will tell you right," he added.

"I’m not going to get hurt by it. It has been around for 40 years.

"I’ve taken it for about a week and a half now, and I’m still here."
