Nancy Pelosi Accuses Trump Of Making ‘Despicable Attacks’ On Maxine Waters

Justin Caruso Contributor

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi defended Rep. Maxine Waters after President Trump poked fun at her IQ during a rally in Montana Thursday.

This comes after Trump joked about Waters’ IQ being in the “mid-60s” during his Thursday speech.

Pelosi defending Waters comes after a number of black leaders criticized Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer in an open letter. The letter expressed “profound indignation and deep disappointment over your recent failure to protect Congresswoman Waters from unwarranted attacks from the Trump Administration and others in the GOP.” (RELATED: ‘Black Women Leaders and Allies’ Group Condemns Schumer, Pelosi For Shunning Maxine Waters’ Rhetoric)
