So this happened:
Pelosi’s presser ended with a tense exchange when a reporter shouted “Do you hate the president?” as she was leaving.
In a rare display of anger, she marched back to the podium: “Don’t mess with me when it comes to a word like that.”

Sinclair’s James Rosen: “Do you hate the president, Madam Speaker?”
Pelosi: “I don’t hate anybody. I was raised in a Catholic house. We don’t hate anybody, not anybody in the world.”
She then returned to the lectern. Nancy Pelosi NEVER returns to the podium. She was pissed,
Pelosi: “I think the president is a coward when it comes to helping our kids who are afraid of gun violence. I think that he is cruel when he doesn’t deal with helping our Dreamers, of which we are very proud. I think he is in denial about the climate crisis. However, that is about the election.”
“This is about the Constitution of the United States and the facts that lead to the president’s violation of his oath of office. And 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. And I still pray for the president. I pray for the president all the time. So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”
And as always, a tweet from the Cry Baby-in-chief, because he always has to have the last word (See Also, “you’re the puppet.”):
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?
