This past week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said that she wants to put Donald Trump in prison. Considering that Pelosi usually tends to get her way, it set off all kinds of speculation about what Pelosi might specifically have up her sleeve in the name of making it happen. Trump seemed particularly rattled by it all, and responded by dragging Pelosi’s family into it. He’s now probably wishing he hadn’t.
After Pelosi made her remark about Donald Trump going to prison, Trump fired back with this drivel: “Nervous Nancy Pelosi is a disgrace to herself and her family for having made such a disgusting statement, especially since I was with foreign leaders overseas. There is no evidence for such a thing to have been said.” At the time, Palmer Report questioned what Trump thought he was hoping to accomplish by referencing Pelosi’s family.
It turns out we weren’t the only ones who picked up on it. Nancy Pelosi’s daughter Christine Pelosi, an influential political strategist in California, fired back at Donald Trump with this fantastically passive-aggressive response: “Her family adores our beloved and graceful Speaker/Mom/Mimi but thanks for your concern.” If Donald Trump knew anything about politics, he’d understand that you don’t mess with anyone named Pelosi.
