House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), should stop criticizing the president’s appearance if she claims to reflect the views of others, a political talk show host said.
Tucker Carlson has slammed the Democratic House speaker for using a nationally televised interview to accuse President Donald Trump of being so overweight that it affects his health.
“After Trump announced yesterday his physician gave him a drug called hydroxychloroquine as protection against the virus, Pelosi exploded,” he said on the “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “We would remind the speaker of the House that people with glass faces should not throw stones.”
Pelosi made the controversial remarks on CNN after she was asked for her opinion on the experimental drug that could help prevent the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus from spreading.
“He is our president and I would rather he not take something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and shall we say weight group, which is morbidly obese they say,” she can be heard saying on the video.
Carlson was surprised by the statement given that Pelosi had previously claimed that other medical decisions like abortion are “sacred” and should stay confidential between a patient and doctor.
“That is it, everyone else can shut up and applaud but on the question of how to treat the coronavirus, Pelosi is happy to judge,” he said. “This is one medical decision Pelosi does not believe should remain between a patient and a doctor … not only is Trump taking an ‘immoral’ pharmaceutical but he is fat. ‘Morbidly obese’ is how Pelosi put it.”
Based on this imprudent attitude, Carlson believes it would also be worth questioning the House speaker about what medical advice she followed to help maintain her relatively youthful appearance as an 80-year-old senior citizen.
“Now we make on this show a real effort not to mock people for how they look, it is not always easy but we really do try [and] Nancy Pelosi should try too,” he said. “Why? Well here is a recent photo of Nancy Pelosi. She turned 80-years-old in March. Does she look 80? No … now how is that possible? If you guessed diet and exercise, we are not going to argue with you because we do not know for sure, and we do not really want to know.”
