Trump tries to taunt Nancy Pelosi with a bizarre dig at her teeth

President Trump responded Sunday to a video clip of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) posted by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), writing that Pelosi's "teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn't have time to think!" In the video, Pelosi explained why House Democrats did not charge Trump with bribery in their articles of impeachment.

"The video shows that just before answering the reporter's question, Pelosi moved her mouth slightly and took a sip of water, but her teeth did not appear out of place and her speech was not interrupted," The Washington Post recaps. Interestingly, Trump's slurred speech two years ago led to comedic speculation that he was suffering a denture malfunction.

It's not clear that Trump, 73, or Pelosi, 79, actually wears dentures. But Pelosi will almost certainly preside over Trump's historic impeachment on Wednesday — and many of Trump's tweet attacks have a certain air of projection about them. Pelosi, who is leading a U.S. delegation to Luxembourg to commemorate World War II's Battle of the Bulge, did not respond to Trump's tweet. Peter Weber
