'I didn't know he was so sensitive - he's always talking about people's weights.' Nancy Pelosi shrugs off Donald Trump accusing her of 'mental problems' after she called him morbidly obese

peaker Nancy Pelosi said on Tuesday she didn't know President Donald Trump would be 'so sensitive' about his weight after she called him 'morbidly obese' and he shot back she has 'mental problems.' 
'I didn't know that he would be so sensitive. He's always talking about other people's avoirdupois, their weight, their pounds,' Pelosi said during an interview Tuesday with MSNBC's Nicolle Wallace.
'I think he should recognize that his words weigh a ton. Instead of telling people to put Lysol into their lungs or taking a medication that has not been approved except under certain circumstances, he should be saying what your previous guest mentioned — things that would help people,' she said.
The speaker was referring to President Trump's suggestion last month that injecting disinfectants, which can kill the coronavirus, into a person could be a possible cure.

Pelosi said the 'morbidly obese' president was putting his health at risk with his daily dose of hydroxychloroquine in an interview with CNN Monday night. 
Trump, in response to that, called her a 'sick woman' with a lot of 'mental problems.'
'Pelosi is a sick woman. She's got a lot of problems, a lot of mental problems,' President Trump said during a visit to Capitol Hill where he had lunch with Senate Republicans. 
At his last physical, Trump, 73, weighed 243 pounds as reported to be 6 feet 3 inches. That would put his body mass index at 30.4, which narrowly qualifies him in the 'obese' category.
Trump, known for his love of fast food, has a history of mocking other people's physiques.

At a campaign rally in Manchester, N.H., last August, Trump said of one supporter in the crowd: 'That guy’s got a serious weight problem! Go home. Start exercising.'
The president, when he owned the Miss Universe competition, referred to contestant  Alicia Machado as 'Miss Piggy.'
Trump's health has come into question as the coronavirus pandemic infected more than 1.5 million Americans and killed more than 90,000 people. 
The president has come under heavy criticism from doctors, Democrats, media commentators and foreign countries after his shocking announcement on Monday he is taking a daily dose of hydroxychloroquine as a precaution against the coronavirus. 
Following Trump's admission, Speaker Pelosi was among a host of doctors and politicians who branded the move irresponsible. 
Pelosi told CNN: '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 morbidly obese, they say. So, I think that it's not a good idea.'

Trump has previously touted hydroxychloroquine as a coronavirus 'cure', but the FDA has warned the drug - which is typically used to treat malaria - has a range of possibly lethal side-effects and has not been proven as an effective COVID-19 treatment.
Several studies are underway into the drug's effectiveness in treating coronavirus and whether it can also protect against the disease, but so far there is no clear evidence it is beneficial. 
The FDA warned on April 30th that hydroxychloroquine caused heart problems and said it should only be used to treat the coronavirus on patients already in the hospital. 
'You're not going to get sick or die,' Trump said on Monday about taking the medication. 'I've taken it about for a week and a half now. And I'm still here.'
At least two White House staffers tested positive for the coronavirus this month, both of whom had access to the president: his Navy valet who serves him meals and Vice President Mike Pence's press secretary Katie Miller, who speaks for the Coronavirus Task Force and is married to Trump senior adviser Stephen Miller.

'I've had no impact from it. I feel the same. I haven't changed I don't think too much,' he said.
