"I don't have confidence in anyone who stands there while the president says, swallow Lysol, it's going to cure your virus. It'll kill you and you won't have the virus anymore," Pelosi said during an interview with CNN's Jim Sciutto.
"There has to be some responsibility. So if the president is saying these things, who's advising him that this is okay and enabling that to happen while millions of people have died?" Pelosi said.
Pelosi's comments come as Birx also faced criticism earlier Monday from Trump, who attacked her for acknowledging that the coronavirus pandemic is "extraordinarily widespread" across the U.S.
“So Crazy Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China Virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics,” Trump tweeted. “In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!”
