OPINION | This article contains political commentary which reflects the author's opinion.
Unsurprisingly, Nancy Pelosi made distasteful remarks about Trump, according to a bombshell book from The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward and Robert Costa.
After the Jan. 6th Capitol riot, Pelosi was allegedly terrified Trump might lash out at China over the 2020 election.
It’s entirely unclear why Trump would lash out at China, but nonetheless, Pelosi held this irrational fear.
While Pelosi and Gen. Mark Milley discussed how to undermine the President’s powers, Pelosi allegedly made a comment about Trump’s “fat butt.”
“He’s crazy. You know he’s crazy,” Pelosi reportedly said. “He’s crazy and what he did yesterday is further evidence of his craziness.”
“Is there anybody in charge at the White House who was doing anything but kissing his fat butt all over this?” she reportedly asked Milley.
“Is there any reason to think that somebody, some voice of reason, could have weighed in with him?” Pelosi continued, according to the book.
“So for this, we are very, very affected by this. This is not an accident. This is not something that you go, well, now that’s done, let’s go from there.
“Let’s move on. It ain’t that. This is deep what he did. He traumatized the staff. He assaulted the Capitol and the rest of that. And he’s not going to get away with it. He’s not going to be empowered to do more.”
Pelosi was apparently so terrified, but still able to fat-shame the President.
Despite Pelosi’s claim that Trump “assaulted the Capitol,” an FBI investigation confirmed there is “no evidence that President Trump or people directly around him were involved in organizing the violence, according to the four current and former law enforcement officials.”
The FBI report found that “the violence was not centrally coordinated by far-right groups or prominent supporters of then-President Donald Trump,” but rather the result of “one-off incidents” and individuals acting on their own.
U.S. General Mark A. Milley is accused of treason following the report in The Washington Post that details how he engaged in a military coup by thwarting President Trump and secretly conspiring with senior military leadership and foreign actors to usurp and undermine the President’s power.
Milley is the 20th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the nation’s highest-ranking military officer.
Milley was reportedly “so fearful” that the president’s actions “might spark a war with China” that he secretly called his Chinese counterpart before the election and after Jan. 6 in a bid to avert armed conflict.
Milley reassured China that he would “give the communist government a heads up should an attack be ordered by the then commander-in-chief,” Townhall reported.
This treasonous action was done without the knowledge of President Donald Trump, RedState reports.
What really prompted Milley’s treasonous action?
On January 9th, just days after the Jan. 6th riot, it was widely reported that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called Gen. Milley seeking to have the Pentagon leadership essentially remove Trump from his authorities as the commander in chief.
It would have been unconstitutional for Milley to defy legal orders from the commander in chief despite Pelosi’s encouragement to remove Trump.
Trump was still the commander in chief and the military was bound to follow his lawful orders.
Military officials can refuse to carry out orders they view as illegal, but they cannot remove the president from the chain of command.
This would amount to a military coup, the officials said at the time.
Here’s a look at the phone call from Pelosi:
What in the f*cking hell?!
Pelosi needs to be questioned along with Milley.

After the call, Milley ordered that any nuclear decisions have to go through him.
This was reported on Jan. 8:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told House Democrats that she has gotten assurances there are safeguards in place in the event President Trump wants to launch a nuclear weapon, according to multiple sources. https://t.co/E8YnKAToRg
