Is the Democratic National Committee running a sale on baby talk? First Joe Biden attempts — and fails — to zap Donald Trump by pinning the nickname “President Tweety” on him. President Tweety?
This morning it was Nancy Pelosi’s turn. While attempting to explain why she finds the president’s behavior “so completely inappropriate in so many ways,” she said of him:
It’s like a child who comes in with mud on their pants or something, if they are outside playing with it. He comes in with doggy-doo on his shoes, and everyone who works with him has that on their shoes too for a very long time to come.
It’s not the first the speaker has used the locution doggy-doo. In January 2018, she derided a GOP spending bill as “a big bowl of doggy doo with a cherry on top”:
As for her beef with Trump, the Washington Examiner notes that two have been locked in “an escalating war of words” for months, adding, “The two have not talked in person since October but have traded increasingly ugly insults.”
Just yesterday, in reaction to Trump’s announcement that he was taking hydroxychloroquine as protection against COVID-19, the speaker feigned concern, telling CNN’s Anderson Cooper, “He’s our President and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his — shall we say? — weight group, that is … morbidly obese, they say.” No, they don’t say. There was no indication in Trump’s most recent physical Trump’s latest physical that he is morbidly obese. Maybe Pelosi is one of those people who “doesn’t really know what the truth is.”
