Pelosi told MSNBC’s Ari Melber on Friday that she doesn’t “really watch them” because Trump ― who frequently brags about the high TV ratings that the news conferences are receiving ― “is contradicting himself either within the same presentation or from the day before.”

Pelosi had earlier stopped short of telling others not to bother watching the briefings. “People can do whatever they wish,” she said. “I think that it would be important for the president to tell the truth and that the American people insist on the truth, their lives and livelihoods depend on it.”
Trump has attracted widespread criticism for his briefings, which he frequently uses to repeat falsehoods, tout unproven cures and attack journalists.
