During a press conference this past Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked why bribery charges weren't included against President Donald Trump, despite Pelosi previously saying that the President's stalling of aid to Ukraine on the condition of politically advantageous investigations amounted to bribery.
Pelosi answered that she'd worked with other members of the House on which charges would go forward, resulting in two charges: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
It took until Sunday for the answer to reach the President's infamous Twitter feed.
In a retweet from Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC), the President said Pelosi's "teeth were falling out of her mouth."
Because Nancy’s teeth were falling out of her mouth, and she didn’t have time to think! https://t.co/rx3pcyofip— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1576447883.0
The President's implication that Pelosi was wearing loose dentures didn't sit well with Twitter.
Soon, denizens of the internet were pointing out the hypocrisy of the President, who often slurs his words during MAGA rallies and speeches.

As is often the case with Trump, many saw the insult to Pelosi as a projection of his own insecurities.
Reminder: everything is projection. The sucking sound he makes when he speaks is to keep his dentures in his mouth. https://t.co/63fydjvrsJ— Elizabeth C. McLaughlin (@Elizabeth C. McLaughlin)1576454725.0

The President has yet to apologize.
But then, has he ever apologized for anything?
