Nancy Pelosi – the speaker of the House and Democratic politician– has kind of been cast as a figurehead for the resistance against President Trump, especially after people made memes out of her ripping up speeches and clapping sarcastically at the President.

But she may have missed the mark with her new nickname for Trump. According to the Washington Post's Jeff Stein, Pelosi is now referring to the president as 'Mr. Make Matters Worse.'

But people aren’t impressed.

People were confused about why Pelosi was just going with nicknames – considering everything that Trump has been doing recently, from messing up the US’ pandemic response and leading to thousands of more deaths, or threatening to send in federal agents to various cities that have had protests over the last couple of weeks.

This isn’t the first time that Pelosi has been criticised for putting out statements over substance.

She was criticised for showing off her freezer full of ice cream in the first month of the Covid-19 crisis, and after later evidence emerged which suggested that a firm linked to her husband had received a loan during stimulus payments.
