Trump’s Tweet Attacking Nancy Pelosi Backfires Spectacularly After Sharing Photo Of The Speaker Scolding Him

The internet is praising House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after President Trump attacked Pelosi by Twitting a photo of her standing up at a contentious meeting with Democratic leaders in Congress and President Trump over his decision to pull American troops from Northern Syria.

“Nervous Nancy’s unhinged meltdown!” Trump tweeted Wednesday.

But his tweet quickly backfired as users, including lawmakers, responded by tweeting their support of Pelosi.

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu (Calif.) tweeted “Thank you @SpeakerPelosi for standing up for the American people!” and also thanked his fellow lawmakers in the House for overwhelmingly passing a resolution earlier on Wednesday rebuking Trump’s decision to pull troops from Syria last week.

Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) tweeted “@SpeakerPelosi speaking out against trump’s disgraces to his face and every man on his side looks down in shame.”

“This image captures perfectly our sad era. One day this photo will be as iconic as a Norman Rockwell,” he continued.

Rep. Veronica Escobar tweeted her own attack at the president, sharing “Someone is definitely nervous and unhinged. But it’s not @SpeakerPelosi.”

“Thanks for sharing! Definitely in the running for her Speaker portrait.” Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) tweeted.

Others also chimed in to laud the photo of Pelosi and her comments during the Wednesday meeting with Trump. Attorney and husband to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway tweeted, “Never thought I’d ever say this, but God bless you, @SpeakerPelosi.”

David Lauter, Washington bureau chief for the Los Angeles Times, tweeted “This photo could be a Pelosi campaign poster — the sole woman in the room, literally standing up to the President. Why he thinks this makes her look bad is a mystery.”
