“I used to think she loved the country — she hates the country … Nancy Pelosi hates the United States of America because she wouldn’t be doing this.”
Fox News reports President Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., during a Friday night rally in Louisiana, saying “Nancy Pelosi hates the United States of America.”
In his second rally in as many nights — following Thursday’s rally in Minneapolis — Trump also ridiculed the ongoing impeachment inquiry spearheaded by House Democrats, whom he called “scammers and con artists,”
“They know they can’t win an election,” Trump told a packed arena in Lake Charles, La., “so they’re pursuing an illegal, unconstitutional bulls— impeachment.”
The president’s use of the barnyard epithet drew a roar from the crowd, just as a profane joke about former President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden did a night earlier in Minnesota. On Friday, Pelosi described Trump’s Obama-Biden crack as “disgraceful,” possibly prompting the president’s Louisiana remark about the speaker.
