After Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) attacked former President Donald Trump in a recent MSNBC interview, Trump fired back on Truth Social — calling her a “wicked witch” destined for hell.
On Friday, the former Speaker of the House appeared on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” to discuss the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) latest indictment against Trump and his arraignment in court. During the interview, Pelosi claimed that Trump looked like a “scared puppy” when he arrived in Washington, D.C., to be arraigned in the case — where he pleaded not guilty to counts related to his legal challenges to the 2020 election results.
“To see the president of the United States be arraigned, it was interesting to hear Mr. Dunn talk about how it felt for him in the courtroom,” Pelosi said. “I wasn’t in the courtroom, of course, but when I saw him coming out of his car and this or that, I saw a scared puppy. He looked very, very, very concerned about his fate. I didn’t see any bravado or confidence or anything like that. He knows. He knows the truth, that he lost the election — and now he has to face the music.”
Many on social media have shared clips of Pelosi’s claim juxtaposed with clips of Trump on the day of his arraignment, comparing her characterization of him as a “scared puppy” to his actual facial expressions and mannerisms on that day — where he appeared to act like his normal self.

Meanwhile, Trump responded to Pelosi’s attacks in a scathing post on Truth Social — where he cited the “very weird story” about her husband Paul Pelosi, likely referring to him being beaten with a hammer by an alleged intruder in front of police under bizarre circumstances in the middle of the night.
“I purposely didn’t comment on Nancy Pelosi’s very weird story concerning her husband, but now I can because she said something about me, with glee, that was really quite vicious. ‘I saw a scared puppy,’ she said, as she watched me on television, like millions of others, that didn’t see that. I wasn’t ‘scared.’ Nevertheless, how mean a thing to say! She is a Wicked Witch whose husbands journey from hell starts and finishes with her. She is a sick & demented psycho who will someday live in HELL!” Trump wrote.
