The battle of insults between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) rages on.

During a lengthy phone interview with “Fox and Friends” on Friday morning, Trump was asked if he engaged in a “criminal coverup,” as Pelosi claimed on Wednesday.

“It’s a fascist statement, it’s a disgraceful statement,” Trump said. “I call her nervous Nancy, she’s a nervous wreck. And I’ll tell you what, for her to make a statement like that, is outrageous. Her party got caught spying!”

Trump’s been on a tear against Pelosi for days, ever since she reportedly said behind closed doors that she wanted to see Trump in prison.

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
