Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) daughter on Thursday described as "despicable" fake videos depicting her mother slurring words and acting intoxicated.

"Republicans and their conservative allies have been pumping this despicable fake meme for years!" Christine Pelosi wrote in a tweet. "Now they are caught. #FactCheck: Madam Speaker doesn't even drink alcohol!"

In a second message, the Speaker's daughter shared a hateful message received from a supporter of President Trump who accused the speaker of hating America while questioning her alcohol use.

"This is the cr*p I'm talking about - reported to @Facebook - which like @Twitter will not suspend the account that clearly violated Terms Of Service. Obviously this doesn't stop ME but others are affected by the 'voter depression' strategy that Trump allies are perpetuating," Pelosi wrote, attaching a screenshot of the message.

The fake videos began showing up this week and have provoked fears about more such videos that could be created attacking various political figures in the future.

The videos showed up amid a feud between Nancy Pelosi and Trump. The Speaker faced pressure this week to move forward on impeaching the president.

Pelosi on Wednesday accused Trump of being involved in a cover-up. Trump responded by walking out of a White House meeting with Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) on infrastructure.

The two then traded insults and barbs throughout Thursday.

Trump on Thursday night posted an edited video himself of Pelosi that showed instances of her stammering or misspeaking during a news conference. He did so after public comments accusing Pelosi of having "lost it" and not being "the same person."

While the video shared by Trump was not the same fake video that Christine Pelosi and others have called out, it seemed to be intended to augment a similar narrative about Nancy Pelosi.

Trump also shared other criticism of Pelosi's speech habits on Twitter Thursday night, including one tweet quoting GOP campaign consultant Ed Rollins, who appeared on Fox Business Network saying Pelosi was unable to "put a subject with a predicate in the same sentence."
