Speaker Nanci Pelosi had just ended her presser on Thursday when a Fox News reporter called out a question: does she hate Trump? Pelosi turned around, returned to the podium and completely shut down the reporter’s attempt to spread the notion that Democrats are impeaching Trump because they don’t like him.
Pelosi responded with strength and dignity that she doesn’t “hate” Trump or anyone.
“As a Catholic, I resent your using of the word ‘hate’ in a sentence addressing me. I don’t hate anyone. … I always pray for the president and I still pray for the president. So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that,’ Pelosi said.
The California Democrat also said, “this is about impeachment not election” and compared policy such as climate crisis and dreamers as election issues but his abuse of power is about the constitution.
