Trump: Pelosi's teeth were 'falling out of her mouth' during press conference

President Trump on Sunday tweeted that Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) teeth were "falling out of her mouth" during a press conference days earlier in which she was discussing the impeachment inquiry.

The comment came as part of a retweet of Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), who had quote-tweeted a clip of Pelosi explaining why bribery was not one of the articles of impeachment filed by House Democrats against the president last week.

"Because Nancy's teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn't have time to think!" Trump tweeted, apparently responding to the reporter's question in the clip.

Pelosi's office did not immediately return a request for comment from The Hill.

The president's remark is just the latest in a series of increasingly personal attacks he has aimed at the Speaker in recent weeks amid a number of public confrontations between the rival politicians.

Earlier this month, the president accused Pelosi of having a "nervous fit" during another press conference in which she rebuked a reporter for suggesting that she hates Trump and countered that she prays for the president frequently.

"Nancy Pelosi just had a nervous fit. She hates that we will soon have 182 great new judges and sooo much more. Stock Market and employment records," Trump tweeted at the time.

"She says she 'prays for the President,'" he added. "I don't believe her, not even close. Help the homeless in your district Nancy. USMCA?"

In October, the president tweeted a photo of Pelosi on her feet pointing at him during a contentious meeting between White House and congressional staff, accusing her at the time of having an "unhinged meltdown" during their discussion. The photo was later widely praised by critics of the president.
