On Sunday, Former President Donald Trump blasted former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), and the “very weird story” surrounding her husband, not long after she said that Trump looked scared before his arraignment in federal court on Thursday.
“I purposely didn’t comment on Nancy Pelosi’s very weird story concerning her husband, but now I can because she said something about me, with glee, that was really quite vicious,” Trump commented on Truth Social.
Pelosi on Friday said Trump looked like a “scared puppy” as he arrived at a D.C. courthouse for his arraignment on four charges related to alleged 2020 election interference.
Trump, who currently sits in the lead of the 2024 GOP primary, pleaded not guilty to charges of conspiracy to defraud the United States, conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding, obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding, and conspiracy against rights.
“I saw a scared puppy,” Pelosi said on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. “I didn’t see any bravado or confidence or anything like that. He knows the truth that he lost the election, and now he’s got to face the music.”
Trump, however, fired back on Pelosi’s claims, writing that “millions” of people who watched him enter the courtroom on television “didn’t see that.”
“I wasn’t ‘scared,’” he said. “Nevertheless, how mean a thing to say! She is a Wicked Witch whose husbands journey from hell starts and finishes with her. She is a sick & demented psycho who will someday live in HELL!”
Pelosi’s husband, Paul, was allegedly attacked during a home invasion in San Francisco on Oct. 28. 42-year-old David DePape, the alleged attacker, faces state charges of attempted murder and elder abuse, as well as federal charges for kidnapping after he allegedly broke into the Pelosi home and attacked the speaker’s husband with a hammer.
DePape will appear in San Francisco on Wednesday, to state his case during a hearing before the federal trial set to begin Nov. 13.
Pelosi’s husband had previously been in the news in May 2022, when he was arrested for causing a crash while driving drunk. He pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to serve five days in jail and three years of probation.
