If there’s anything we’ve come to know about Donald Trump over the course of his tenure not just in politics but in the public spotlight in general, it’s that he’s not exactly known for his filter. One of the most glaringly obvious aspects of his style that endears him to the Republican base is that he has the perception of saying whatever’s on his mind. That certainly has not changed, and Donald Trump made that clear in his recent speech in front of California Republicans. Not only was Nancy Pelosi onhis list of targets, but her husband was as well.

Antonio Pequeño IV with Forbes writes:

“…Trump said he would “stand up to crazy Nancy Pelosi“ if reelected president, asking a crowd of supporters, “How’s her husband doing by the way?” and saying a “wall around her house” didn’t do a “good job” of protecting her 82-year-old husband from an intruder who fractured his skull with a hammer during a break-in last year — prompting laughter from the crowd…”


As is so often the case when it comes to things like this, I find myself asking what the narrative would be like if the shoe was on the other foot. What if these roles were reversed?
