President Trump hit right back at Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) a day after she said he should not be taking Hydroxychloroquine to prevent contracting the Wuhan coronavirus because of his older age and being "morbidly obese."

"As far as the president is concerned, he's our president and I'd rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group, morbidly obese," she said. "So, I think it's not a good idea."

When Trump was asked on Tuesday about the slight after attending a Republican Senate lunch, he initially replied, " Oh, I don’t respond to her. I think she is a waste of time."

But he wasn't done going after her during the presser with reporters. 

As he was wrapping up his time with the press, he let one more verbal barrage, calling Pelosi a "sick woman" because of her and the Democratic party's obsession with the Special Counsel's investigation into whether Russian agents colluded with his presidential campaign in 2016.

"The Russian thing was a made-up fabricated stories. Just like they went to Congresswoman [Tusli Gabbard], I don’t know her at all. They said, 'You are a Russian agent.' I don't know her, but I know she's not a Russian agent. Then they want to Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party. They said she was a Russian agent. I don't know her at all, I know she's not a Russian agent.

"These people are sick. Pelosi is a sick woman. She’s got a lot of problems, a lot of mental problems. We're dealing with people that have to get their act together for the good of the country," he said.
