President Donald Trump slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a “sick puppy” following comments she made suggesting his actions in dealing with the coronavirus crisis have been “deadly.”

The President responded to Pelosi’s attack during a phone interview with Fox & Friends Monday morning.

“She’s got a lot of problems and that’s a horrible thing to say,” Trump fumed, before noting that it was his actions very early on that saved lives.

“I stopped some very, very infected, very, very sick people, thousands coming in from China, long earlier than anybody thought, including the experts, nobody thought we should do it except me,” he insisted.

Sick Puppy

Pelosi, in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper this weekend, compared President Trump to the Roman Emperor Nero and implied that Democrats might embark on another investigation of his actions.

“What did he know and when did he know it?” Pelosi asked. “That’s for an after-action review. But as the president fiddles, people are dying.”

She also suggested, despite evidence to the contrary, that Trump’s “denial at the beginning, was deadly.”

Trump on Monday said, “She’s a sick puppy in my opinion.”

The President responded to the suggestion that an investigation might be forthcoming by reminding viewers that Democrats were focusing on the impeachment sham when word of the coronavirus spreading to the United States was starting to hit.

“There’s something wrong with the woman,” he understated. “She focused on impeachment, and she lost, and she looked like a fool.”

Trump concluded by insinuating Pelosi is “a disgrace to her country [and] her family.”

Trump Saved Lives

During the Fox & Friends interview, President Trump pointed out that Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has repeatedly credited him with saving countless lives through swift action.

One of the key actions necessary to control the spread of the virus, Fauci explained, is to “contain the influx of people who are infected coming from the outside.”

Dr. Ronny Jackson, former lead White House doctor appointed by Barack Obama, has made similar comments that refute Pelosi’s blame game claims.

The President’s actions, he concluded, are “going to save countless American lives.”
