Twitter Drags Trump For His Dig About Pelosi’s Teeth “Falling Out”

After another unsurprisingly sexist move by Donald Trump, the Internet is up in arms. This time, the President insulted Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the United States House of Representatives, by sharing a video of her talking and saying: “Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think!”

Trump was responding to Mark Meadows, who was responding to The Hill, which had shared a video of Pelosi talking about…Trump and his proclivity for bribery.

Pelosi, who says the House has no choice but to impeach the President, told a reporter that bribery wasn’t included in the articles of impeachment after she worked with the committee chairs and attorneys.

Afterward, Trump called Pelosi “crazy” and wrote that she “Nancy is finding defending Shifty Schiff harder than she thought!”

The thing is, we’ve seen this sort of bullying tactic a hundred times before. Trump focuses on someone’s looks or age when he doesn’t like what they have to say.

In fact, Trump delights in insulting, denigrating, reducing, and bullying others, and so while it’s not surprising, it is ceaselessly disappointing. At a time when more and more women are stepping up in power— Greta Thunberg, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, Hillary Clinton—there’s no doubt that Trump attacks when he feels threatened and emasculated by their very presence.

The Internet is seriously over his bullying ways.

Mia Farrow, who is a vocal Trump critic, took a swipe at him using his own medicine:

And so did a few others:

But the fact is this: Trump hates women because they make him feel small. History won’t remember his insults; it’ll remember the fact that he needed to hurl them.
