Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, May 25, 2019

Nancy Pelosi has seen this all before. When President Donald Trump on Thursday night tweeted a doctored video with the heading "PELOSI STAMMERS THROUGH NEWS CONFERENCE," a predictable chorus of outrage quickly followed. Here was the president of the United States crossing yet another line of civil discourse, distributing a deceptively edited clip of a political adversary aimed at sowing doubts about her mental fitness.

Nancy has been stuttering, stumbling, stammering, and mumbling for years.

She normally sounds like she's got a mouth full of peanut butter, with no glass of milk in sight.

The Facebook video in particular has already been shared more than 35,000 times. And based on some of the nearly 7,000 comments, viewers are buying it hook, line and sinker.

"Good Lord lady ... How many drinks did you have today.." one commenter wrote.

"Omg is she drunk or having a stroke??? Bet that makes the Dems so proud of their Leader, LMAO," another said.

"How can you have a meaningful meeting with a drunken Speaker of the House?" said another.

It's not the first time recently that a video doctored to defame a prominent figure in politics has spread fast and wide.

If that were true they wouldn't have to doctor videos of her.

Hey goofball. The video was altered and released into the wild so that media can now dismiss years of stammering Nancy videos.

There are tons of unedited, untouched videos of Nancy mispronouncing words, acting confused, and looking like she just exited a roller coaster.

This a media cover for something's wrong with Nancy. She can't hide it for long.

Makes no sense. The right released an altered video just so the media would dismiss all other videos? Why would the right defeat its own purpose?

If there truly are tons of unedited, untouched videos of Nancy mispronouncing words and acting confused then they could have just released any of those.

I find the video of Trump kissing a drag queen more amusing.

Trump gets an altered video of Pelosi and his loyal lemmings support him on it. Ass kissing sychophants is the correct term for them, Sheeple is certainly one.

The video was altered and released because Humpy is a Liar.

Praise be to the King of 10,000 lies!

#8 the fact that they had to fake one proves it untrue. Otherwise, they could just share the ones out there. The joke is that Trump speaks like a person wearing dentures and he's deeply embarrassed about it.

#17 | Posted by BruceBanner at 2019-05-25 01:13 PM | Reply

Trump regularly can't pronounce words and later his Trumpsplainers have to correct what he's said.

This just seems like Republicans are desperate to goad Pelosi into a confrontation. An impeachment, perhaps.

Sherp meagerly musters a, "She always stutters, stumbles, and stammers. For years even. The Trump administration put the video out to clear her of any mishaps! They love her!"

Sad.

What's funny is you deplorables buying into and regurgitating this childish game of insults and name calling. This is the Kingdom of 10,000 lies and childish insults.

And anyone can if humpy can.

You can literally make anyone say anything now or look horrible if you want with software. It's been around for years but was mostly used to brush out our warts. Now it is much better of course and will be used to add warts.

Republicans used to be stealthy with their phony attacks, lies, and half truths. Now it's all out in the open.

Trump's base eats up these phony attacks, but it only adds to the distrust the other 2/3rd of the country has for Republicans.

A side by side video clearly shows the video was slowed down by 25% and her voice pitch raised back up. All in a feeble and laughable attempt to make it appear she was drunk.

Only an outright liar and/or an incredibly stupid person would still be proclaiming the doctored Pelosi video isn't altered.

No doubt you'll be claiming to be a 'libertarian' once this idiot who thumbs his nose at decency and the rule of law is kicked out next year.

Let's see ONE example of a video widely released by Democrats doing the same thing.

Oh, that's right, you can't because there aren't any.

One is presented as comedy, up front.

One is presented as truth, and accompanied by comments like "See how much she's lost over the years?"

Are you really going to pretend those two are the same?!?

Blah blah blah, I am independent and have always been. I vote for who I think is the best candidate, not party.

You can continue to do all your bashing and trashing that has not an ounce of validity but it helps make you feel better for your party belief system.

None of this matters, this is just wasted political trash that means nothing

Are you ------- kidding me? The hysterical rage mob has been screeching Russian puppet, traitor, collusion, Nazi dictator, pee tapes, and more for over 2 years.

And ALL of it is misinformation, disinformation, manufactured from whole cloth, and Fake News.

Meanwhile, you're hand-wringing about exposing Nancy's stuttering and stammering problem captured on video dozens of times?

Feel free to link to all the places this was presented as comedy. The President didn't retweet it as a joke. Neither did Lou Dobbs, among a lot of others. Why are you pretending otherwise?
