Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s attorney, gave a confusing statement Friday after sharing and deleting a video of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Thursday that was doctored to display her as inarticulate.
“Ivesssapology for a video which is allegedly is a caricature of an otherwise halting speech pattern, she should first stop, and apologize for, saying the President needs an ‘intervention.’ Are,” Mr. Giuliani tweeted along with a gif of a basketball game celebration, which was screenshotted by Mediaite.
Mr. Giuliani followed it up with another tweet that makes his point better.
“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,’” he tweeted.
Mr. Giuliani tweeted a video Thursday in which Ms. Pelosi’s speech had been edited to give the impression she was slurring her words.
“What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi?” He tweeted with the video. “Her speech pattern is bizarre.”
He deleted the tweet 15 minutes later but his boss, Mr. Trump, still has the video on his account with the caption “PELOSI STAMMERS THROUGH NEWS CONFERENCE.”
