The Internet Torches Trump For Sharing Doctored Video Of Pelosi Aired By Fox News

Donald Trump is being dragged all over the internet for sharing an edited video of Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday, mocking the Democratic leader for various moments during a press conference earlier in the day where Pelosi appeared to misspeak.

Trump tweeted the video with the caption: “PELOSI STAMMERS THROUGH NEWS CONFERENCE.”

The video, which first appeared on Fox Business’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” cut together a number of Pelosi’s apparent flubs in quick succession.

Earlier Thursday, a number of videos shared by conservative accounts went viral—those clips were falsely edited to make Pelosi appear as if she was slurring her words due to intoxication.

The video was briefly pinned to top of the president’s Twitter feed Thursday evening.

His tweet came hours after YouTube removed altered videos of Pelosi following requests for comment from The Hill and other news outlets, though falsely edited videos of the speaker remained on Facebook into Thursday evening.

“YouTube has clear policies that outline what content is not acceptable to post and we remove videos violating these policies when flagged to us. These videos violated our policies and have been removed,” a spokesperson for YouTube told The Hill.

Trump’s personal attacks aimed at Pelosi come after he abruptly ended a Wednesday meeting at the White House with Democratic leaders on infrastructure after Pelosi accused him of being engaged in a “cover-up.” Trump then threatened that he’d no longer work with the Democrats on their top legislative priorities if the House does not end its investigations into his finances and conduct.

Twitter users were quick to respond to Trump’s bizarre attack. Check some of the highlights below.
