Update (1150ET): It did not take long for President Trump to respond to Pelosi’s outburst…
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?

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; a reporter at Speaker Pelosi’s weekly press conference dared to ask if she “hated” President Trump.
“I don’t hate anybody. I was raised in a Catholic house, we don’t hate anybody – not anybody in the world. So don’t you accuse me of any [hate],” Pelosi said during her weekly press briefing in the Capitol.
“As a Catholic I resent you using the word ‘hate,'” she continued.
“Don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”
