President Trump lashed out at Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Fox News host Chris Wallace after the Democratic House leader appeared on the network, calling Pelosi an “inherently ‘dumb’ person” and warning that “Wallace and Fox News are on a bad path, watch!”
“Nervous Nancy is an inherently ‘dumb’ person. She wasted all of her time on the Impeachment Hoax,” Trump tweeted on Sunday afternoon as the COVID-19 death toll in the U.S. surpassed 40,000 deaths.
“She will be overthrown, either by inside or out, just like her last time as ‘Speaker.’ Wallace &@FoxNews are on a bad path, watch!” he added.
Trump linked to a tweet from the Republican Party that accused Pelosi of playing politics by holding up refunding a loan program for small businesses, while noting her appearance on “Fox News Sunday.”

“When the #PaycheckProtectionProgram ran out of funding, she decided playing politics was more important than saving #SmallBiz. It is time for the Democrats to be held accountable for putting millions in financial limbo,” the GOP tweet said.
Pelosi, in her first interview on “Fox News Sunday” since 2017, said she would give the president an “F” for his “weak” leadership during the pandemic.
“Leaders — leaders take responsibility. So I said he’s a weak leader. He doesn’t take responsibility. He places blame — blame on others,” Pelosi told host host Chris Wallace.
“And that might have been OK before, but we cannot continue down a path that is, again I’ll come back to science, science, science, evidence, data on how we should go forward,” she said.
