Donald Trump’s vindictiveness and compulsive fixation on those who have wronged him is legendary, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her impressive leadership on the impeachment proceedings are driving him to previously unheard-of levels of obsession.
The President of the United States tweeted about Nancy Pelosi before going to bed last night and did so again first thing in the morning, first to wonder why she was even allowed to impeach him in the first place and secondly to trash her district, claiming that it has terrible homelessness and crime and blaming her for it.
Nancy Pelosi’s District in California has rapidly become one of the worst anywhere in the U.S. when it come to the homeless & crime. It has gotten so bad, so fast – she has lost total control and, along with her equally incompetent governor, Gavin Newsom, it is a very sad sight!

For the second time in as many Pelosi tweets, Trump makes it clear he doesn’t understand basic American politics. This time, he reveals he has no idea of what a Congressional Representative’s job actually is — to represent their district in Congress, not to govern or manage the area.
This is not the first time he’s blamed a Representative for their district, infamously smearing the city of Baltimore as a “disgusting rat-infested mess” in order to attack the late Rep. Elijah Cummings for his insistence on using the Oversight Committee to investigate the President and his cronies for their numerous misdeeds.
The president’s tweet is a throwaway and extremely lazy attack on his political rival, and all it accomplishes is making it clear to the nation just how deeply she’s gotten under his skin.
