House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday that President Donald Trump is clearly not well, and urged family members or White House staffers to stage an “intervention” for the sake of the country.
“I pray for the president of the United States. I wish that his family or his administration or his staff would have an intervention for the good of the country.”

Minutes later, Trump sarcastically said on Twitter that he appreciated the Speaker’s prayers:
….Democrat leadership is tearing the United States apart, but I will continue to set records for the American People – and Nancy, thank you so much for your prayers, I know you truly mean it!

As The Hill notes, Trump’s performance on Wednesday left many shaking their heads at just how out of touch the president seemed:
Pelosi’s comments come a day after Trump suddenly ended an infrastructure meeting with Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY)) after Pelosi accused Trump of engaging in a cover-up.
Trump denied being involved in a cover-up and said that talks would not resume until Democrats “get these phony investigations over with,” referring to a series of congressional probes.
Trump’s Rose Garden blow up also came just hours after a federal judge ordered two banks to turn over financial records regarding the president’s business interests before he took office. Those records have been subpoenaed by congressional committees and Trump has had his attorneys attempt to block the disclosures. Two other banks — Wells Fargo and TD Bank — have already begun handing over records to the House Financial Services Committee, which is chaired by Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA).
