Pelosi suggests Trump early days in office like neophyte performing ‘brain surgery’


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, in a recently published profile of President Trump, gave a stinging criticism of the president’s early months in office, suggesting his “lack of knowledge” for the job was tantamount to somebody without a medical degree “being asked to perform brain surgery.”

“The bigger problem, the thing people need to understand, is that he was utterly unprepared for this,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a New York Times story published this weekend about Trump’s daily routine. “It would be like you or me going into a room and being asked to perform brain surgery. When you have a lack of knowledge as great as his, it can be bewildering.”

Pelosi, who has had an on-and-off political relationship with Trump, also suggested that perhaps even Trump at first couldn’t reconcile how a first-time candidate upset a political veteran like Democrat Hillary Clinton to become president, but that he has since found some footing.

“At first, there was a thread of being an impostor that may have been in his mind,” she said. “He’s overcome that by now.”
