House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is still putting President Trump in the doghouse.

Just two days after slamming “morbidly obese” Trump following his claim that he had been taking the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine to prevent contracting COVID-19, Pelosi further threw the President under the bus when asked Wednesday morning about his tweets stoking a baseless right-wing conspiracy alleging MSNBC host Joe Scarborough of a grave crime.

“You are asking me about the appropriateness of the actions of this President of the United States?” Pelosi said, sounding exasperated. “So completely inappropriate in so many ways that it’s almost a given.”

Pelosi then compared Trump to “a child who comes in with mud on their pants or something” after playing outdoors.

“He comes in with doggy doo on his shoes, and everybody who works with him has that on their shoes, too, for a very long time to come,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi went on to argue that Trump repeatedly says things that are “inappropriate” for a president, such as his remarks on women and that he plays to a “market” for insulting comments.

Watch Pelosi’s remarks below:

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
