I tuned out too quickly from the Pelosi press conference, or the feed was cut too soon, because I missed the best part at the end. While she was walking off the platform, a reporter shouted “Do you hate the president, Madam Speaker?” That stopped her in her tracks.
“I don’t hate anybody,” Pelosi retorted. The reporter continued, stating that Rep. Doug Collins said that the impeachment effort is simply because Democrats don’t like President Trump. This visibly affected Pelosi, who returned to the platform to deliver a rambling rant about Trump, youngsters with guns, DREAMers, and the Constitution.
“I think this president is a coward when it comes to helping our kids, who are afraid of gun violence. I think he is cruel when he doesn’t deal with helping our DREAMers,” she said. “I think he’s in denial about the climate crisis.” Of course, most of that could also have been said about Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, who put illegal immigrant kids behind chain-link fences and provided guns to brutal Mexican drug cartels.
She went on, “As a Catholic, I resent your use of the word ‘hate.'” That’s a good one, since the Bible is full of references to things God hates. “I don’t hate anyone,” she said, telling of how she prays for the president “all the time.”
“Don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that,” Pelosi said with a final wave of her arm, then walked off the podium.
I’m sure President Trump will have some kind of Twitter response. At least he should thank Nancy for her prayers.
Apparently, the speaker wants us to think that Democrats are trying to remove Trump for any other reason than that they hate him. I can’t keep a straight face typing that. Maybe Pelosi doesn’t hate Trump, but I guarantee most of her party, and the liberal media, definitely do.
