President Trump on Sunday responded to Democrats’ failure to include bribery in their articles of impeachment by mocking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s teeth.
While clearly joking, the President’s comments reveal a level of frustration overtaking him as the resistance party pushes the most partisan impeachment effort in the history of our nation.
Trump was responding to a video clip in which Pelosi answers a reporter’s question about the obvious exclusion of bribery charges.
“You yourself accused him of bribery,” the reporter queried. “Why did you decide not to make bribery one of the articles of impeachment?”
Pelosi responded that the decision was made to exclude bribery and quid pro quo after “working together with our committee chairs, our attorneys and the rest.”

Trump Had a Mouthful to Say
Needless to say, President Trump had a very unique and different viewpoint on the clip.
North Carolina Republican Rep. Mark Meadows shared the video and noted the reality is Democrats didn’t pursue bribery “because it wasn’t true.”
The President responded to that with a savage quip claiming the House Speaker couldn’t respond to the reporter’s question with an honest response because she had other things on her mind.
“Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think!” he wrote.

The Bribery Scam
Even amongst some of Trump’s most ardent supporters, the personal swipes against his political opponents are at times a bit much.
For others, it shows a human side to the President that they can relate to.
The lack of bribery charges in the articles of impeachment after weeks of being told by Democrats that he had committed that very specific crime is perhaps the most infuriating aspect of this entire sham.
So, when Nancy Pelosi tells reporters that she consulted with experts about whether or not to include bribery due to semantics, she’s … well, lying through her teeth.
The Democrats have so massively lowered the bar for impeachment – from high crimes and misdemeanors to fabricated allegations – that no President going forward would escape scrutiny for any mundane actions.
“The Impeachment Hoax is just a continuation of the Witch Hunt which has been going on for 3 years,” Trump fired back in another tweet. “We will win!”
