Speaker Nancy Pelosi likened Donald Trump and his aides to children with dog feces on their shoes. The insulting remark came days after Pelosi described the president as “morbidly obese.”

“It’s almost like a child who comes in with mud on their pants or something,” said Pelosi. “He comes in with doggy doo on his shoes, and everybody who works with him has it on their shoes, too, for a very long time to come,” she added.

Pelosi made the attack in vexation following a question from a reporter about the appropriateness of Trump’s claims on Twitter that Joe Scarborough had killed a congressional aide when he was still a member of the House. She said Trump’s actions were completely inappropriate in many ways.

In a separate interview earlier this week, Pelosi also attacked Trump when she made insulting comments about his weight, referencing the president’s most recent physical exam that classified him as obese.  “Especially in his age group, and in his, shall we say, weight group, morbidly obese, they say,” she said.

Pelosi made the disparaging remark in criticism of Trump’s approval of the use of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine in treating COVID-19 patients in the U.S. The speaker said she would like to give Trump “a dose of his own medicine,” adding that she was only being factual in a “very sympathetic way.”

“He’s called women one thing or another over time, and I feel like he thinks that passes off as humor in certain cultures, and I thought that was what that was,” she said. “I was only quoting what doctors had said about him, so I was being factual in stating that we don’t want our president taking something that could be dangerous,” she added.

Donald Trump and Pelosi have long been known to take a jab at each other during interviews. When Trump was asked for comments about Pelosi calling him obese earlier this week, the president told reporters that her comments were indicative of her declining mental state. On Twitter, he often refers to the House Speaker as “Crazy Nancy.”
