President Donald Trump took another personal jab at Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday in response to Rep. Mark Meadows’ response to a question a reporter posed to the speaker.
Could this slight have anything to do with the recently-concluded House Judiciary Committee impeachment inquiry that resulted in two articles of impeachment being filed and voted on?
Of course, it does.
The question and subsequent answer were posted on Twitter by The Hill newspaper.
Q: “You yourself accused [Trump] of bribery. Why did you decide not to make bribery one of the articles of impeachment.”
Speaker Pelosi: “This was a decision that was recommended by working together with our committee chairs, our attorneys and the rest.”
Rep. Meadows responded by saying “Because it wasn’t true,” which prompted President Trump’s response to his tweet with his own tweet.
“Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think!” Trump tweeted in response to the reporter’s question in the clip.

In the video below, it appears as if Speaker Pelosi was having an issue with her mouth, possibly having food stuck in her teach, or what Trump claims, that her teeth were falling out.

The House impeachment measure is expected to be dead on arrival in the U.S. Senate.
Appearing on Fox News, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham announced that he would not be calling in witnesses to a senate impeachment trial, and will be calling an immediate vote on the House measure.
“I will not legitimize this sham… we will not legitimize this in the Senate,” stated Graham
“I want it get it over with,” added Graham
Sen. Graham continued to assert his position that once the House Judiciary Committee concludes its impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump, and the House votes on the two articles of impeachment, he will not call in the Bidens or anyone.
