(Newser) – Nancy Pelosi is turning a President Trump taunt into a bragging point. Trump tweeted a photo of Pelosi standing during an Oval Office meeting and pointing a finger toward Trump. "Nervous Nancy's unhinged meltdown!" he wrote in the caption. Pelosi, however, loves the image, which shows her standing alone at a table packed with men as she speaks. As Business Insider notes, Pelosi has turned the official White House photo into her Twitter cover image. Details:

  • The meeting: The photo comes from Wednesday's volatile meeting between congressional leaders and Trump. Democrats left early, and Pelosi said afterward that Trump had a "meltdown" over criticism of his Syrian decision. However, Trump responded on Twitter that it was Pelosi who had the "total meltdown," adding, "Pray for her, she is a very sick person."
