‘The President Himself Is a Hoax’: Pelosi Reacts to Trump’s Response to Alleged Russian Bounties Plot

President Donald Trump is receiving harsh criticism from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) after he called reports suggesting Russia placed bounties on American troops in Afghanistan a “hoax.”

MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle suggested Trump has not said anything about Vladimir Putin or placing sanctions on Russia following the revelation of the intelligence.

Pelosi chimed in listing other things Trump has called a hoax and ultimately called him one herself.

“He uses a hoax because he’ll say this is a hoax and it’s a hoax that they are 24/7 trying to disrupt our election as they did in 2016,” Pelosi said.

She added, “He says coronavirus is a hoax, the fact is the president himself is a hoax.”

Watch her comments below:

Pelosi went on to say the “White House has done a con” by arguing that because the intelligence agencies could not come to a consensus on the intelligence it was not worthy of Trump’s attention.

She argued the lives of Americans should be his top priority.

“No, the death of our young people in Afghanistan or any place is worthy of the president’s attention even if it’s caused by his friend Vladimir Putin,” Pelosi said.

According to Pelosi, the nation has to respond to this by placing additional sanctions on Russia.

She questioned what Trump’s move would have been if it were any other country and suggested his reactions always lead back to Russia.

“You just wonder what the president would be thinking if this kind of intelligence had come forth about any other country,” Pelosi said. “But every time it’s Russia, as I’ve said over and over with this president, all roads lead to Putin.”

National Security Adviser Robert O’Brien came to Trump’s defense on Wednesday claiming Trump was not previously briefed on the intelligence because the allegations could not be corroborated, as IJR previously reported.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also sparred with reporters on Wednesday after he expressed his frustration with news organizations as he believes they are putting lives at risk by reporting on the matter, as IJR previously reported.


  1. Well another Russian hoax to start Trumps 2nd term. They will start the investigations for the next 2 years. Only thing is the last one was better. This one is a joke. Why would the Russians pay the Taliban any money that they don’t have. The Taliban loves killing our troops for free.
    But look at Pelosi eyes total madness . Trumps people have to help her. Draft a executive that all representatives need to pass a metal test to continue . Only problem with that it will expose judge Roberts when he said that an executive order isn’t legal.

  2. Pelosi’s is the hoax. Her hoax is that she is human, intelligent, patriotic, honest, and in any way “serving” to America.

  3. This isn’t news this isn’t relevant this isn’t even a story it’s a gossip piece at best.

  4. “President Donald Trump is receiving harsh criticism from Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.). What’s new?? Time to lay-off the Botox old crazy eyes

  5. The perpetually surprised Pelosi is lying again. NO proof, just BS. The NYT lies and Pelosi swears to it. Typical Liberal/Democrat dirty tricks. Nothing to see here.

  6. I don’t see Trump as a “hoax”—-a terrible JOKE 63 million Americans played on the country. but not a hoax. I am not predicting historians and future generations will be laughing.

  7. The Madame Speaker owning her b*tch trumpuke 24/7.

    Bunker Baby is a barely crawling one trick pony with

    a one word response to all of his many self made crises.
