We got the Speaker of the House Monday leaving Washington D.C.’s Reagan Airport and asked her about Trump’s early morning retweet of a photoshopped image showing herself and Schumer in Islamic garb. It was a random account with a mere 15,000 followers, but Trump blasted it out to his nearly 71 million followers.
Pelosi summed up the state of our democracy by repeating one of Trump’s favorite social media phrases. A subtle counter-punch, for sure. She also took a bigger swipe, saying Trump doesn’t know right from wrong.
As you know … Republicans and Democrats are at odds over Trump’s order to target and kill Iran’s Gen. Qassem Soleimani, and the mudslinging is showing no signs of slowing down.
Pelosi clearly thinks the Prez’s retweet is over the line — but she’s also NOT holding her breath for an apology. After all, this ain’t her first rodeo with POTUS.
