‘Sexist trash': Hillary Clinton goes off on doctored Pelosi video – Washington Examiner
Hillary Clinton was unhappy with doctored video of Nancy Pelosi slurring her words being shared online.
“The president and his cronies have been running around spreading a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi,” Clinton said at a speech she gave Friday for the Harris County Democratic Party. “Now, it is sexist trash. But, it is also a sign that Trump is running scared.”
Trump tweeted a video montage of the speaker of the House stammering in a recent press conference.
The video was originally played by Fox Business host Lou Dobbs. A spokesperson for the show defended the clip, saying they did not slow down her words in the clip.
“The FOX Business segment featuring clips from Speaker Pelosi’s speech today did not slow down any aspect of her address,” the spokesperson said.
Other videos, which featured slowed videos of Pelosi to make her appear intoxicated, were also spread on social media platforms. Rudy Guiliani, the personal attorney for the president, reposted one of the slowed-down videos, saying: “Her speech pattern is bizarre.”
He later deleted the post and issued a jumbled message demanding Pelosi apologize to Trump for saying he needs an “intervention”:
Nancy Pelosi wants an apology for a caricature exaggerating her already halting speech pattern. First she should withdraw her charge which hurts our entire nation when she says the President needs an “intervention. “People who live in a glass house shouldn’t throw stones.”

Guiliani later tweeted again with a less jumbled statement.
“Nancy Pelosi wants an apology for a caricature exaggerating her already halting speech pattern. First she should withdraw her charge which hurts our entire nation when she says the President needs an ‘intervention.’ People who live in a glass house shouldn’t throw stones,” Giuliani said on Twitter.
Clinton’s attack on the video echos the same line given by Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff Drew Hammill.
“We’re not going to comment on this sexist trash,” Hammill said of the video.
