Trump didn’t spread the “doctored” video, despite people like CNN’s S.E. Cupp claiming he did. Meanwhile there are dozens of videos that show that Pelosi has some kind of a problem.

The bitter feud between President Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi continues to escalate, with new nicknames, new accusations and counter-accusations, and, now, a new video posted by the president that Pelosi’s team decried as “doctored” but that NBC News notes appears to simply be a montage of the speaker’s stammering.
Amid Pelosi’s accusations that Trump threw a “temper tantrum” in a closed-door meeting with Democrats and is engaged in a “cover-up,” Trump tweeted a video aired on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that is a 30-second montage of Pelosi stammering repeatedly over the course of a 20-minute news conference Thursday.
In response, Pelosi’s Chief of Staff Drew Hammill accused the president of posting a “doctored video.” “Hours before the posting of this doctored video, @washingtonpost reports that doctored Pelosi videos are multiplying across social media,” he wrote, referencing a Post report on a different video circulating on social media.
Pelosi’s daughter Christine Pelosi also declared the video a “fake.” “Fake video altered for speed- just like you did to Acosta,” she wrote, a reference to the infamous Acosta video, which Trump critics said was deliberately “doctored,” an accusation further analysis debunked. “Dig deeper — you can give the presidency more respect than this.”
But as NBC explains, Team Pelosi’s “doctored” and “fake” descriptions appear to be wrong. While a digitial forensics expert did determine that a different video starring Pelosi was altered to make it appear that she was slurring her words, the video posted by Trump does not appear to have been “altered for speed,” as the speaker’s daughter alleged.
