House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, speaking on news that the President has been taking the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine, feigned concern and suggested he shouldn’t be doing so because he is “morbidly obese.” pelosi morbidly obese
Pelosi made the stunning insult on a network where she knows childish lies are going to go unchecked – CNN.
In her usual sputtering delivery, the California Democrat told anchor Anderson Cooper that Trump should not be taking the drug when he falls in a certain age and weight group.
“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 – what is it, morbidly obese they say,” she said. “So I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
Cooper offered no pushback or even surprise that Pelosi made the absurd comment. So much for going high, as they say.

Trump Shocks With Revelation
President Trump on Monday revealed that he had been taking the drug, something he has been touting for weeks now, as a means to stave off the coronavirus.
“I happen to be taking it,” he told reporters at the White House on Monday. “I’m taking it. Hydroxychloroquine. Right now, yeah.”
White House Physician, Sean Conley, confirmed the President’s announcement in a memorandum which noted a member of the support staff had tested positive and as such, “the benefits” of treatment with hydroxychloroquine “outweighed the relative risks.”
“I’ve heard a lot of good stories and if it is not good, I will tell you right,” Trump stated. “I’m not going to get hurt by it … I’m still here.”

Dems Hurling Insults pelosi morbidly obese
It would appear prominent Democrats are throwing around insults as a means to combat the President’s oftentimes hilarious jabs at their expense.
Biden, equally as mentally unfit to challenge Trump as Pelosi, has given the President a new nickname.
“Trump is out there tweeting again this morning. I call him President Tweety,” Biden said, an insult on par with the popular meme, “How do you do, fellow kids?”

Biden, who has been dubbed ‘Sleepy Joe’ by the President, has alleged he “can hardly wait to get onto the [debate] stage with Donald Trump.”
Neither Pelosi, who hasn’t met a plastic surgery she doesn’t like, nor Biden, who traffics in incoherence on a daily basis, wants any part of Trump or the insult game.
