In yet another sign that impeachment is making President Donald Trump even more unhinged than usual, the president decided he’d launch a childish attack on Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for daring to have a cough drop in her mouth at her weekly press conference.
Late last week, Pelosi spoke to the media and clearly had either a cough drop or mint in her mouth while speaking. It should be noted that she also coughed several times and frequently took sips of water.
But to hear Trump tell it, the Speaker’s teeth were falling out of her mouth:
Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think! https://t.co/rx3pcyofip

Yes, the current president has the mentality of a third-grader.
Let’s take a moment and go back to December of 2017, when Trump was making a speech about recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel instead of Tel Aviv. Near the end of his remarks, the president looked as if his teeth were on the verge of escaping his mouth. Take a look:

Trump’s hypocritical cheap shot against Pelosi drew plenty of reaction on social media:

Sir, with or without teeth Speaker Pelosi has the votes to impeach you. You must remember the nursery rhyme. High crimes and misdemeanors will break my brand, but names will never hurt Nancy. Enjoy your impeachment!

Funny- as you slur your words so frequently, many of us wonder if YOUR teeth keep falling out

Back around the end of September …
Why does Pence have to nudge you TWICE to get him to move to the podium?
Why is your first step so awkward?
Why is your right arm hanging limp?
