Hillary Clinton came to the defense of fellow Democrat House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi on Friday via the ‘sexism’ card. The Twice-failed Democratic candidate accused the man who she claimed stole her chance of becoming the first female President of the United States, of posting ”sexist trash” to try to disparage the Democratic leader.
Clinton also warned the audience that her former opponent has put us in a ”very real constitutional crisis.”
“We have to remind Americans: we are the party that can deliver for them, but we also are the party that will stand up and protect the Constitution and address what is a very real constitutional crisis that this president has put us in,” Clinton told a group of Democrats in Houston, Texas, as reported by The Washington Times.
The crisis was fueled by the ‘doctored’ video of Pelosi Trump posted. “Just look at what’s happened in the last 24 hours. The president and his cronies have been running around spreading a doctored video of Nancy Pelosi. Now, it is sexist trash, but it is also a sign that Trump is running scared.”
Trump had posted a video edited to highlight moments where Pelosi struggled to deliver her comments.

“Hany Farid, a computer-science professor and digital-forensics expert at University of California, Berkeley, told The Post that there was no doubt that video had been altered,” NBC News reported. “But he said he believed the video Trump tweeted Thursday had not been slowed down.”
“Unlike the video referred to in The Washington Post article, I don’t believe that this video montage was slowed down. This montage, however, is highly deceptive as it compiles in rapid succession relatively small verbal stumbles in an attempt to portray Speaker Pelosi as stumbling through her press conference,” Farid told NBC.
The public fued between Trump and Pelosi has intensified lately and now features more personal attacks by each of them. After Pelosi accused Trump of throwing a “temper tantrum” and storming out of a meeting with Democrats, Trump described her as a “mess” and having “lost it” and floated a new nickname for her: “Crazy Nancy.” Pelosi, in turn, mocked him as an “extremely stable genius” and slammed him for not being “presidential.”
“When the ‘extremely stable genius’ starts acting more presidential, I’ll be happy to work with him on infrastructure, trade and other issues,” Pelosi tweeted.
