Trump Slams Pelosi as 'Sick Puppy' Over Virus Criticism

President Donald Trump Monday slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a "sick puppy" in response to her criticism of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic emergency, while insisting that his decision to block travel from China early on had at that point "stopped" the virus "cold."

“It's a sad thing,” Trump said during a nearly hour-long interview on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." “She's a sick puppy in my opinion. She really is. She's got a lot of problems and that's a horrible thing to say...I stopped some very, very infected, very, very sick people, thousands coming in from China, long earlier than anybody thought, including the experts, nobody thought we should do it, except me and I stopped everybody.”

Pelosi, D-Calif., told CNN Sunday that while Trump "fiddles, people are dying." She added that the president's initial denials of the dangers of coronavirus were "deadly," as has been his "delaying of getting equipment to where it is needed."

“We stopped it cold," Trump said Monday of his early steps. "It had never been done before in the history of our country and (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director) Dr. (Anthony) Fauci said the other day, 'if those people came in, if I didn't do that, you would have had deaths like you would have never seen before,' and she doesn't mention that.”

He also accused Pelosi of "playing the impeachment game" and claimed she's being "controlled by the radical left, by AOC (Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez)." 

"For her to make a statement like that, I thought it was a disgrace, and I think that it's a disgrace to her country, her family," said Trump. "There's something wrong with the woman because she knows what we've done. You look at San Francisco, how her area where she lives has become a slum and they don't do anything about it. They leave it there...in fact, the federal government, we may get involved and take over that area, and clean it up."
