‘Losing his grip on reality’: Trump mocked for attacking Pelosi over a quote that actually came from Fox News

Raw Story 2 weeks ago

Early Tuesday morning, President Trump took aim at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), misattributing a quote to her that actually came from a Fox News reporter.

Nancy Pelosi just stated that ‘it is dangerous to let the voters decide Trump’s fate.’ @FoxNews,” Trump tweeted. “In other words, she thinks I’m going to win and doesn’t want to take a chance on letting the voters decide. Like Al Green, she wants to change our voting system. Wow, she’s CRAZY!”

According to various reports, Trump was inadvertently quoting Fox News chief congressional correspondent Mike Emanuel, who said during a broadcast Monday night that “Pelosi circulated a memo to Democrats tonight telling them it would be dangerous to let voters decide President Trump’s fate when it comes to the Ukraine investigation.”

Regardless of the quote’s origin, the President’s words sparked a lot of discussion in the comment thread that developed beneath his tweet.
