Pelosi: 'Doctors' Ask Me 'What is the Matter' with Trump
Speaker makes bizarre claims about president during rant about 'doggy doo on his shoes'
During a bizarre rant at a Wednesday press briefing, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that "doctors" are asking her "what's the matter" with President Donald Trump.
Pelosi appeared to be suggesting to the media that medical professionals have expressed concern to her about President Trump’s mental health.
The speaker made the comments while talking about "the appropriateness of the actions of the president of the United States" during her weekly presser on Capitol Hill.
Aside from making suggestions about the president's mental state, Pelosi unloaded in a strange monologue where she said Trump has "doggy doo on his shoes."
She went on to suggest that "everyone who works with him has that on their shoes too."

During her weekly press conference, Pelosi started her rant by claiming:
“I hear doctors talk to me about saying, ‘what’s the matter with him?'”
“The things he says are so inappropriate for a president of the United States,” she added.
"The comments he makes about women — so inappropriate."
Elsewhere in her press conference, Pelosi bizarrely said that the president is "like a child" with "mud" on his trousers, and Trump and his administration have “doggie doo” on their shoes.
"It’s like a child who comes in with mud on their pants, that’s the way it is, they are outside playing,” the speaker remarked.
"He comes in with doggie doo on his shoes, and everybody that works for him has that on their shoes too for a very long time to come."
The speaker claims that her comments were both “factual” and “sympathetic” and “a dose of his own medicine.”
“I didn’t say anything about the president,” Pelosi replied when asked about her jab about the president’s weight.
"I gave him a dose of his own medicine.
"I was only quoting what doctors had said about him and I was being factual in a very sympathetic way.”
“As far as the president is concerned, 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,” the speaker told seemingly lost-for-words CNN host Anderson Cooper.
“So, I think it’s not a good idea.”
President Trump hit back at Pelosi on Tuesday, slamming her as a “sick woman” with “a lot of mental problems.”
Pelosi later expressed surprise over the president’s response, calling it a “sensitive” reaction.
“He’s always talking about other people’s avoir du poids, their weight, their pounds,” Pelosi told MSNBC.
“I don’t want to spend any more time on his distraction because, as you see in the last couple of days, so much of the time has been spent on what he said,” she continued.
"Rather than that, I think he should recognize his words weigh a ton.
"Instead of telling people to put Lysol into their lungs or taking a medication that’s not been approved except under certain circumstances.
"He should be saying that your previous guest mentioned things that will help people," she concluded.
