(Tea Party 247) – Nancy Pelosi has attracted quite a bit of attention for recent comments she made that President Donald Trump should not be taking the drug hydroxychloroquine because he is “morbidly obese.”
The fact that the Speaker had the audacity to fat shame the president and criticize his use of the antimalarial drug as a prophylactic against the virus which he began under the guidance of his physician was only secondary, however, to the fact that she really, really, shouldn’t judge.
This is exactly what Fox News Channe’s Tucker Carlson pointed out during his program in the wake of Pelosi’s comments, hilariously noting that “people with glass faces should not throw stones.”
He compared Pelosi’s comments to her record on abortion.
“Nancy Pelosi believes abortion is a sacred medical decision,” Carlson said. “It’s a choice that involves a woman and her doctor, and that’s it. Everyone else can shut up and applaud. But on the question of how to treat the coronavirus, Pelosi is happy to judge. After Trump announced his physician gave him a drug called hydroxychloroquine as protection against the virus, Pelosi exploded. This is one medical decision Pelosi does not believe should remain between a patient and a doctor.”
He recounted Pelosi’s comments which she had given on Monday to CNN’s Anderson Cooper that Trump was “morbidly obese.”
“Got that? Not only is Trump taking an ‘immoral’ pharmaceutical, but he’s fat,” he added. “‘Morbidly obese’ is how Pelosi put it. Now we make on this show a real effort not to mock people for how they look. It isn’t always easy, but we really do try. Nancy Pelosi should try, too. Why?”
After showing a picture of the elderly Pelosi, Carlson continued.
“She turned 80-years old in March. Does she look 80? No. More like 37. If you guessed diet and exercise, we’re not going to argue with you because we don’t know for sure. And we don’t really want to know. But we would remind the Speaker of the House that people with glass faces should not throw stones,” he stated.
