President Donald Trump on Thursday went off on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — and defensively insisted that he was “extremely calm” during his tirade in the White House Rose Garden on Wednesday.
Shortly after Trump said Pelosi doesn’t “understand” the trade deal his administration has worked out with Canada, he then claimed Pelosi was undergoing some kind of nervous breakdown.
“She’s a mess,” Trump said. “Look, let’s face it. She doesn’t understand it. They sort of feel, she’s disintegrating before their eyes. She does not understand it.”
He also fumed that Pelosi told reporters on Wednesday that he was angry during their aborted infrastructure meeting.
“She said I walked into the room right next door yesterday and walked in and started screaming and yelling,” Trump complained. “Just the opposite! Just the opposite! Because I know that they will always say that, even if it didn’t happen — because this happened once before. I walked out. I was so calm. you all saw me minutes later. I was at a news conference. I was extremely calm!”

Expert: Trump in a ‘dangerous’ battle with Bloomberg to win Texas for Biden
Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg this week revealed that he's making a major last-minute ad blitz aimed at winning both Texas and Ohio for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe can’t wait for Democrats to throw McConnell’s words back in his face
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell gave Democrats every justification to expand the Supreme Court.
The "Morning Joe" host -- an ex-Republican -- said Democrats should throw McConnell's words back in his face to make the case for expanding the court if they retake the majority, after Republicans brazenly violated their own precedent to ram through Amy Coney Barrett.
"I love watching stuff like this," Scarborough said. "This is, like, do I need some popcorn? No, I'll tell you why. Every word that Mitch McConnell -- every single word -- and if Democrats have half a brain, and if they're not wimps, they will actually lift that speech word for word and use it when they expand the court to 11 or 12 justices."
Trump ‘is in a state of panic’ as he sees ‘the walls closing in’: MSNBC’s Heilemann
During an MSNBC discussion of the curious choices Donald Trump's campaign is making about his rally locations, "Morning Joe" regular John Heilemann stated the president "is in a panic" and can't think straight --even more than normal -- because he knows he's losing badly.
With only seven days ago, the president has been holding two to three rallies per day, which led "Morning Joe" host Joe Scarborough to ask Heileman if there is a strategy behind the choices the president is making.
"I think the president's in a state of panic," the MSNBC regular asserted. "I think that's the only real answer and I think you see things like -- you guys pointed to in the last hour when you talk about Trump being up in New Hampshire is good example of that kind of panic."
