Nancy Pelosi has not had a stellar week, to put it politely.
The Democratic Speaker of the House had to sit idly by and watch the 2020 Iowa caucuses go up in smoke, bestowing upon her party yet another black eye in the run-up to November’s general election.
Then, after having her handshake snubbed by the President at the onset of his State of the Union address, Pelosi let her emotions get the best of her. Her speech-ripping stunt was then lambasted by the media and her colleagues alike.
Now, according to President Trump, Madam Speaker may be infected with the barely-fictional affliction colloquially known as “Trump Derangement Syndrome” and, according to the Commander in Chief, it’s a “bad case”.
“They say, ‘Trump Derangement Syndrome.’ They’ve got it. They’ve got a bad case of it,” Trump said about the Democrat party.
The president said that Pelosi’s decision to tear up his State of the Union speech on Tuesday night was proof that she had Trump Derangement Syndrome.
“You saw that. That was on display the other night when she ripped up the speech,” he said.
Trump would go on to intimate his concern that Pelosi’s actions were also “illegal” – something that Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz has also previously suggested.
“Trump Derangement Syndrome” has been a popular quip among supporters of the President, and refers to the seemingly uncontrollable outrage that many Democrats display when confronted with the achievements of the Trump administration.
