House Speaker Nancy Pelosi still loathes Donald Trump and can’t contain her anger towards him.

In a bizarre video posted to her official Twitter account on Sunday, the California Democrat referred to Trump as “the former occupant of the White House” while talking about raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour and advocating to bring a change.

In the video, she said, “We were able to pass it [FightFor15] in the House in the last Congress. But of course, the Senate with Mitch McConnell would just not bring it up and nobody thought that ‘what’s his name’ would have signed it, the former occupant of the White House would have signed it.”

Taking to Twitter, she shared the video and wrote, “No one who works full-time in America should live in poverty. The #FightFor15 is a fight for women, for working families, and for a growing economy that benefits everyone. That’s *our* fight!”

WATCH:

“More than 2/3 of workers earning the minimum wage are women; disproportionately, women of color. Until we #RaiseTheWage, they can fall below the poverty line even working multiple jobs. No one should live in poverty in America – especially someone working full-time hours & more,” she added in a second tweet.

This is the second time in a week where Pelosi had a meltdown over Trump.

Roughly two weeks ago, the Senate acquitted Trump after House Democrats impeached the former president a month ago.

Some Democrats are searching for new ways to “punish” Trump, but apparently, Pelosi doesn’t even want to hear it.

Pelosi said she’s not interested in censuring Trump after the Senate acquitted him last weekend.

She implied that censuring Trump would be similar to giving “a little slap on the wrist.”

“What is so important that the political survival of any of us, that is more important, than our Constitution that we take an oath to defend?” asked Pelosi. “What we saw in that Senate today was a cowardly group of Republicans who claim they have no options because they were afraid to defend their job.”

As Pelosi began to leave the podium, a reporter apparently asked Pelosi about whether she would move to censure President Trump in the House of Representatives.

In response, Pelosi began talking loudly and emotionally before returning to the podium, hands and arms flailing wildly to express her disapproval.

“They let everybody off the hook, all these cowardly Senators,” she said, slamming the podium.

“Who couldn’t face up to what the President did, and what was at stake for our country, are now going to have a chance to give a little slap on the wrist? We censure people for using stationary for the wrong purpose, we don’t censure people for inciting insurrection,” she added.
