WATCH: Pelosi unveils new nickname for Trump “Mr. Make Matters Worse”

Appearing on “Face the Nation” Nancy Pelosi unveiled a new nickname for President Trump.

“I have new name for him, Mr. Make matters worse. He has made matters worse from the start. Delay, denial, ‘it’s a hoax’, ‘it’s a miracle’ and the rest.”


TheHill reports House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Sunday dubbed President Trump “Mr. Make Matters Worse,” bestowing him with the new nickname over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

“This president, I have a new name for him: Mr. Make Matters Worse,” Pelosi said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday.

“He has made matters worse from the start — delay, denial, it’s a hoax, it’ll go away magically, it’s a miracle, and all the rest — and we’re in this situation,” Pelosi added, referencing the president’s repeated suggestions that the virus may spontaneously disappear “like a miracle.”

“Now they want to send our children to school,” she added.

The White House has been pushing to resume in-person classes in the fall and threatened to defund school districts that refuse.

“The best way to send our children to school is to fund it,” she added, highlighting the need for improved ventilation and physical spacing in classrooms to allow for social distancing.

“That takes money. That’s in the HEROES Act,” she added, referencing the relief package the House passed months ago.
