Pelosi Mocks Trump's Weight: His 'Big Frame' Lacks 'Decency'
House speaker gets personal with the president
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi got personal with President Donald Trump after seemingly mocked his weight when she referred to the president’s “big frame” during a CNN interview.
Pelosi made the below the belt comments when asked to weigh in on Trump accusing former President Barack Obama of politicizing late Rep. John Lewis’s funeral.
“I don’t intend to come on one of these shows and talk about the, shall we say, wanderings of and the notion maundering of the president of the United States,” Pelosi said.
“He succeeds because all we do is talk about it," she added.
"So, why are we talking about this?” Pelosi asked.
“You would think that there would be an ounce in that big frame of decency to say something about the importance of voting in our democracy instead of criticizing somebody else’s eulogy,” Pelosi later added.

The Democratic House speaker also appeared mock Attorney General William Barr’s weight last week.
Pelosi also claimed Trump was "morbidly obese" during another interview with host Anderson Cooper on CNN in May.
Cooper asked Pelosi if she was "concerned" about the president taking the drug, hydroxychloroquine.
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.
New York's University of Rochester Medical Center defined morbid obesity as "a serious health condition," something which President Trump does not have.
