“I have no interest in what he calls people, because he’s always projecting,” the California Democrat, whom Trump has repeatedly called "Crazy Nancy,” told Elle magazine in an interview published Thursday.

“He knows he’s crazy; it’s so self-evident. Everything he calls anybody — ‘lazy,’ ‘crazy.’ Quite frankly, I don’t pay that much attention to him," Pelosi said.


"I think it’s really a sad, sick situation," the lawmaker, 80, added.

Trump and Pelosi have frequently hurled insults at one another, with Trump repeatedly using the term "crazy" to attack the Speaker, particularly in the wake of the House's move to impeach him last winter.

Trump described Pelosi as "stone cold crazy" in a TV interview last month, and last month, he chided Jim Cramer after the CNBC host apologized for calling her “crazy Nancy” in an interview.

“Jim, you didn’t make a mistake. It’s true, and that’s why you said it. No pandering!” Trump said.

But in her Elle sit-down, Pelosi, who the magazine described as “barely on speaking terms” with the president, said Trump isn't top of mind for her.

“I don’t even think about him, to tell you the truth,” she said. “This is the most conversation I’ve had about him, certainly all day.”
