Pelosi daughter hits Trump over ‘deranged obsession with our mother’

The daughter of former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hit former President Trump over what she characterized as a “deranged obsession” with her mother.

“His deceitful, deranged obsession with our mother is yet another reason Donald Trump is unwell, unhinged and unfit to step foot anywhere near her — or the White House,” Christine Pelosi wrote on the social platform X.

Christine Pelosi was responding to reported comments made by Trump during his morning meeting with House Republicans on Thursday.

He reportedly said, “Nancy Pelosi’s daughter is a whacko, her daughter told me if things were different Nancy and I would be perfect together, there’s an age difference though,” according to a tweet from Punchbowl’s Jake Sherman, who noted the comment he posted was “close to an exact quote.”

“Speaking for all 4 Pelosi daughters — this is a LIE,” Christine Pelosi wrote in her post on X.

A spokesperson for Nancy Pelosi responded to the reported comments in a statement to The Hill.

“That guy has clearly lost his marbles. Not that he had many to begin with,” the spokesperson said.

The former Speaker targeted Trump earlier in the day over his visit to Capitol Hill, which marks his first since Jan. 6, 2021, when rioters stormed the building to protest the results of the 2020 election.

She said in a statement earlier Thursday that “the instigator of an insurrection is returning to the scene of the crime,” referring to the former president.

“With his pledges to be a dictator on day one and seek revenge against his political opponents, Donald Trump comes to Capitol Hill today with the same mission of dismantling our democracy,” Nancy Pelosi said. “But make no mistake — Trump has already cemented his legacy of shame in our hallowed halls.”

The Hill has reached out to Trump’s campaign for comment.
