Trump Lashes Out At “Known Nut Job” Nancy Pelosi In New Unhinged Statement

569 points

Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post journalists Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker claim in their forthcoming book, ‘ I Alone Can Fix It: Donald J. Trump’s Catastrophic Final Year,’ that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi feared that then-President Donald Trump would launch nuclear weapons in his final days in the White House, according to an excerpt from the book. And we all know how hard the twice-impeached one-term president tried to cling to power. As for nukes, it’s not far-fetched since the former president suggested nuking hurricanes to stop them from hitting the U.S.

“This guy’s crazy,” Pelosi reportedly told Gen. Mark Milley, the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman after the Capitol riot. “He’s dangerous. He’s a maniac.”

“Ma’am, I guarantee you that we have checks and balances in the system,” Milley responded, according to the authors of the book.

Trump lashed out over the excerpts from the book, insisting that Pelosi is a “known nut job.”

“Nancy Pelosi is a known nut job. Her enraged quotes that she was afraid that I would use nuclear weapons is just more of the same,” he said in his statement. “In fact, I was the one who got us out of wars, not into wars. And I was the one that got respect for our Country again, not like now when the leaders of the entire World are laughing at us. They didn’t laugh when I was there!”

In fact, World leaders laughed at the former president when he was in office on more than one occasion.

In another example, a video went viral of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau apparently mocking Trump at a reception. And other world leaders — including French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and Mark Rutte, prime minister of the Netherlands — appeared to be mocking him, too.

Trump certainly seems concerned about the new books that are coming out. The authors of ‘I Alone Can Fix It’ sat down with more than 140 people for the book, including Trump himself, for more than two hours. At any rate, he has more important things to worry about right now. Try to focus, Donald.
