Right-wing groups are circulating deceiving videos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s remarks Wednesday at a Center for American Progress event. In the video, posted to Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter accounts, Pelosi’s speech has been subtly slurred, suggesting she’s drunk, by slowing down the video to about 75% of its actual speed, according to The Washington Post. As with all things on social media, the bogus video is ripping through at lightning speed. A version posted by the right-wing Facebook page Politics WatchDog has already been viewed more than 1.6 million times. Thanks, Facebook. (By the way, be careful out there—so much misinformation.) This is clearly intended to be a knock on Pelosi’s competence and credibility. She keeps besting Trump, and since Trump can’t beat her without getting outside help, right-wing forces are swooping in to provide a meme about Pelosi that can run wild on social media. Remember when the National Enquirer continually fanned the conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton was sickly? This is most likely the beginning of a conspiracy theory that Pelosi drinks. It’s interesting that they’re using slurred speech to go after her when Trump is constantly slurring his words, likely due to some form of mental deterioration. If you want to see the real Pelosi at the real speed, below is at least part of the section of that bogus video delivered in real time by CNN. Not drunk—very very very sober in the midst of Trump’s wild emotional outbursts.

Hi all! Welcome to this cycle’s first Cattle Call, which I plan to do monthly, or every two weeks alternating with the Straw Poll, we’ll see how it shakes out. Regardless, this isn’t a poll of the online community, but my own take on the state of the race. That means that while I’ll be mostly objective, that “mostly” is operative—I have biases. And unlike past cycles where I stayed neutral until one candidate had scored the requisite delegates for the nomination (it was simple math), I am not doing that this cycle. You have opinions, I have opinions, and that’s fine! We’ll have a jolly time arguing about it all. So without further ado … let’s start with the 538 list of polls and the RCP polling averages:

During the announcement that he was going to pay out another $16 billion to farmers, on top of the $12 billion paid out last year, to not at all compensate for the losses farmers are suffering because of his trade war, Trump took time out to attack Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. First, as he was discussing the agriculture deal itself, Trump brought up the pending legislation around his minor revisions to NAFTA. As he did, Trump threw in this comment about Pelosi’s lady brain just not being up to dealing with trade: “I don't think Nancy Pelosi understands the deal. It's too complicated. But it's not a complicated deal.« Trump then used what was supposed to be a platform to showcase his support for farmers to make claims that he was “very calm” during his meeting with Pelosi and Senator Chuck Schumer. He then sought to prove his calmness by insisting that Kellyanne Conway confirm his version of events, in public, on camera. But Trump wasn’t done. As the event was winding up, Trump returned to the idea that Pelosi is somehow not clever enough to understand the NAFTA version 1.01 he’s selling as a whole new thing. “She’s lost it,” said Trump. »She's not the same person. She's lost it. ... She's a mess. Look, let's face it. She doesn't understand it. They sort of feel ... she's disintegrating before their eyes. She does not understand it." Trump then unpacked his new nickname for the speaker, calling her “Crazy Nancy.” This should go so, so well.
