Doctored Video Showing “Drunk” Nancy Pelosi Retweeted by Trump Lawyer Rudy Giuliani

HeadlineMay 24, 2019

This comes as a doctored video of Pelosi went viral in right-wing social media circles. The video, edited from an appearance by Pelosi this week at the Center for American Progress, was slowed down to 75% speed in order to make Pelosi sound as though she was slurring her words. By Thursday night, versions of the video had circulated to millions of social media users, many of whom commented that they believed Pelosi was drunk. The video was also shared by President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani, who tweeted—and later deleted—the comment, “What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi? Her speech pattern is bizarre.” Meanwhile, President Trump retweeted a mashup video of Pelosi edited by the Fox Business channel with the caption, ”PELOSI STAMMERS THROUGH NEWS CONFERENCE.”
