Since she became Speaker of the House at the start of this year, Nancy Pelosi has defeated Donald Trump to varying degrees each time they’ve squared off. She’s outwitted and overpowered him during each of their in-person meetings. She’s put on a House impeachment process that’s convinced a majority of Americans that he should be ousted, while keeping his 2020 poll numbers as pathetic as ever. Now she’s finalizing the passage of articles of impeachment against him.
Let’s just say that Donald Trump isn’t particularly happy about continually losing to Nancy Pelosi – and he’s letting it show in increasingly bizarre ways. For instance, Pelosi was asked by a reporter about why bribery wasn’t included in the articles of impeachment against Trump. She simply stated that it was because the impeachment-related committees decided to focus on other Trump crimes instead.
Donald Trump quoted Pelosi’s words and added this completely idiotic commentary: “Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think!” Not only is this nonsensical and grotesque, he’s also projecting. Trump has had a number of moments where he was slurring his words and it sounded like he had marbles in his mouth, leading to the widespread suggestion on social media that perhaps his dentures keep falling out. So naturally, Trump is falsely accusing Pelosi of the same thing.
Trump can tweet idiotic things about his adversaries’ teeth all he wants. The bottom line is that Nancy Pelosi has impeached him, on charges that the majority of Americans agree he’s guilty of, and there’s nothing he can do about it. Even if the Republican Senate rubber-stamps his acquittal, it’s not magically going to gain Trump the additional votes he needs to have a chance in 2020. Pelosi is winning.
