Actor James Woods seemingly weighed in on the “morbidly obese” debate after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made comments about President Donald Trump.
Woods shared his thoughts on Twitter while sharing a photo of Pelosi.

“Morbidly corrupt…” Woods captioned the photo.
The comment seems to be in reference to Pelosi’s response to the news that President Trump had been taking hydroxychloroquine, a drug being tested to help treat coronavirus, for a week and a half.
“I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group, and in his, shall we say, weight group: ‘Morbidly obese,’ they say,” says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Pres. Trump’s revelation he is taking hydroxychloroquine. pic.twitter.com/0ImjpEjg9q

“As far as the president is concerned, he’s our president and I would rather he not be taking something that has not been approved by the scientists, especially in his age group and in his, shall we say, weight group — what is it, morbidly obese they say,” Pelosi told CNN’s Anderson Cooper. “So I don’t think that’s a good idea.”
Pelosi has since defended her comments saying she was giving President Trump “a dose of his own medicine.” (RELATED: Pelosi Says She Was Giving Trump ‘A Dose Of His Own Medicine’ By Calling Him ‘Morbidly Obese’)
“I didn’t say anything about the president. I gave him a dose of his own medicine,” Pelosi said during a press conference Wednesday. “I was only quoting what doctors had said about him and I was being factual in a very sympathetic way.”
