At the conclusion of her Thursday morning press conference, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lashed out at a reporter for asking if she “hates” President Trump.
Pelosi returned to her podium after reporter James Rosen asked as she was leaving the press conference, “Do you hate the president, madam speaker?”
“I don’t hate anybody,” she responded, wagging her finger. “We [Catholics] don’t hate anybody, not anybody in the world… As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone. I was raised in a way that is a heart full of love and always pray for the president… So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that,” she added.
Trump later tweeted, “Nancy Pelosi just had a nervous fit. She hates that we will soon have 182 great new judges and sooo much more. Stock Market and employment records. She says she ‘prays for the President.’ I don’t believe her, not even close. Help the homeless in your district Nancy. USMCA?” he added, referring to the trade agreement negotiations.
