Social media users flooded the comments under Donald Trump’s recent post about US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi stammering during a press conference with videos of Trump’s own lapses.
Donald Trump published on Twitter a cut from Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs show, featuring a video of the Democrat stumbling over words and a follow-up discussion in the studio about her age. Political analyst Ed Rollins pointed out that the 79-year-old has a “very big job” and sounded very inarticulate, something that she has never been in the past. He concluded that the Democratic caucus leader, whom he dubbed “an old guard”, “needs to step into the background and not be out-front as much”.

Some alleged that the video of Pelosi was doctored.
Even Alyssa Milano, who’s returned to the spotlight as one of Trump’s most vocal critics, showed up to trash his attack on Pelosi.

Just a day before Trump posted this video, Speaker Pelosi had a meeting with him during which they were supposed to discuss a $1 trillion infrastructure investment bill. However, earlier that day, she convened a Democratic caucus special meeting to discuss the impeachment of the president. Following that special meeting, Pelosi accused Trump of being engaged in a "cover-up” that resulted in the president walking out on the talks.
Following the walk-out, Pelosi accused Trump of pulling a “stunt” at the meeting, saying he "stormed out" of the room, throwing "another temper tantrum again".
"Again, I pray for the president of the United States. I wish that his family, or his administration, or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country", Pelosi told reporters a day after Trump ditched a meeting with prominent Dems following the speaker’s accusations of his “cover-up” deals.
However, the White House has vehemently denied that Trump's indignation a day earlier at the meeting with top Democrats was a pre-planned escapade.
