Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think! https://t.co/rx3pcyofip

President Trump opened a new, dental front Sunday in his periodic feuding with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, suggesting on Twitter that her teeth were falling out as she answered a reporter’s question about why bribery was not made an article of impeachment.
The jab comes just days before the House is expected to impeach Trump. Late last week, the House Judiciary Committee approved two articles of impeachment against the president: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
Pelosi (D-Calif.) has described Trump’s efforts to pressure Ukraine’s president into announcing politically advantageous investigations as “bribery,” but bribery — a somewhat legally unwieldy definition — was not included among the charges, even if House Democrats believe Trump’s actions can be described as such in lay speech.
“This was a decision that was recommended by working together with our committee chairs, our attorneys and the rest,” Pelosi said last week, when a reporter asked her about it.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) retweeted a clip of the exchange posted by The Hill Thursday night, adding, “Because it wasn’t true.”
Meadows’s tweet caught Trump’s attention Sunday, when he offered his additional thoughts: “Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think!”
So this is the guy whose followers believe was chosen by God to be the president?
