In case you missed it, Nancy Pelosi raged against a reporter who had the temerity to ask her an actual tough question about the impeachment hearing, going so far as to invoke her ‘Catholic upbringing’.
Q: "Do you hate the president?"@SpeakerPelosi: "I don't hate anybody…As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don't hate anyone…So, don't mess with me when it comes to words like that."

“I don’t hate anybody…As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone…So, don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”
Having accused President Trump of “abuse of power” and calling for the House to draft articles of impeachment for “using the office of the President for personal gain,” pointing out that The Founders “could not have foreseen such a rogue president;” and then calling the president a “coward” for not helping kids on gun violence, blasting him as “cruel” for not helping DREAMers, and slamming him for being “in denial” over climate change.
But she doesn’t ‘hate’ him… ok.
President Trump, however, didn’t back down and smacked her down in true Trump fashion.
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?
