Donald Trump was advised to not tweet while the impeachment hearings are ongoing in the House Intelligence Committee. He did. Instead, he did something that stunned women.
The president of these United States said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was “grossly incompetent.” This slur for probably the most gifted House speaker in recent memory. She was the first woman to become the speaker and the only speaker to ever win the job twice.
Trump said that Pelosi only wanted to “focus on the impeachment:”
‘President Trump on @SpeakerPelosi: “The woman is grossly incompetent. All she wants to do is focus on impeachment.”‘

He continued on the video, talking about Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman who was before the committee:
‘I don’t know him. … I never saw the man. I understand now he wears his uniform when he goes in. No, I don’t know Vindman at all. What I do know is that even he said that the transcript was correct.’
Why would Vindman not wear his uniform? He is on active duty in the Army. He wears his medal proudly, including a Purple Heart for being injured in Fallujah, Iraq. An IED blew up the vehicle he was riding in, and Vindman carries shrapnel in his body to this day.
