President Donald Trump’s own history was thrown back in his face Tuesday after he issued a six-page rant attacking House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the impeachment proceedings.

When responding to the letter, Pelosi called it “ridiculous” and the president “sick.”

But Bianna Golodryga, senior global affairs analyst for CNN, recalled that when the Democrats took back the house during the 2018 election, the president supported Pelosi as the speaker, because he didn’t think she would have the guts to impeach him.

“He really can’t be managed, and you look at the turn in the relationship between the president and the speaker, remember a year ago, Trump was pushing for Pelosi to be Speaker of the House for maybe, perhaps, this exact reason,” said Golodryga.

She went on to recall that Pelosi didn’t want to go down the road to impeachment, because she knew the Republicans in the Senate would never vote to support impeachment, much less reach the 67 votes needed for removal. It was only after the Ukraine scandal erupted that Pelosi agreed the president should be held accountable.

During a long and very contentious interview with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper snapped back at Donald Trump's righthand man for trying to mock him for not wearing a mask during the interview where Meadows was not in the studio.

After grilling Meadows for agreeing to designate Vice President Mike Pence as an "essential worker" so he can continue to campaign for Donald Trump after his office became a COVID-19 hotspot, the CNN host pressed Meadows why the president continues to refuse to wear a mask and doesn't demand it of his rallygoers.
