‘I Don’t Hate Anybody!’: Pelosi Blasts Reporter Who Asked If She Hates the President

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) forcefully rejected the suggestion that she hates President Donald Trump during her weekly press conference on Thursday.

As Pelosi was leaving the room, Sinclair Broadcast reporter James Rosen asked about Rep. Doug Collins’ (R-Ga.) claim that Democrats are moving to impeach the president “simply because they don’t like the guy.”

“Do you hate the president?” Rosen asked, leading Pelosi to stop in her tracks and respond, “I don’t hate anybody!”

Watch the exchange below:

Pelosi returned to the lectern to blast Trump for not supporting gun control legislation and accuse him of being in “denial about the climate crisis.”

“I think the 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. I think he’s in denial about the climate crisis.”

But, she added, “that’s about the election. Take it up in the election. [Impeachment] is about the Constitution of the United States and the facts that lead to the president’s violation of his oath of office.”

Pelosi continued to blast Rosen for suggesting she “hates” the president, saying she prays for Trump “all the time.”

“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 full … 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.”

Trump responded to Pelosi’s comments saying in a tweet, ” I don’t believe her.”

“I’ll take the Speaker at her word,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), adding, “But if she paused for a moment. If she looked at just the facts, she would not have made that determination.”

When pressed further on whether he believes Pelosi when she said she doesn’t hate Trump, McCarthy said, “I think I have a hard time believing her.”

Pelosi’s press conference came shortly after she announced that she is asking the House Judiciary Committee to draft articles of impeachment against the president.

  1. I don’t hate Trump says Nancy I pray all the time that God will kill him. She also proclaims her devote Catholic faith and she is entirely ok with abortion.

  2. She hates anyone who has voted for Trump Trump himself we the people need to start a petition to remove her from office not only her Shift Nadler Omar AOC ect

  3. Pilosi hates babies! PASS THE WORD… SPREAD IT AROUND THE INTERNET! Let’s make her understand we are AWARE of her fraudulent being.

    PILOSI HATES BABIES!

  4. “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 full … a heart full of love…” Guess her Christian love doesn’t extend to the unborn.

  5. I wonder if Nancy would pop a vein if another reporter had asked how she AS A NOMINAL CATHOLIC can support abortion. Even the socialist pope won’t go that far.

  6. Of course you don’t hate anyone Nancy. You pay people to do that for you.

    By the way nice bullying threat you made to that American citizen, i.e. the reporter.

  7. So she plays the Catholic card when using the work “hate” but not when it comes to protecting the lives of innocent babies in the womb. Hmmm.

  8. peelousy hates everything about America and every conservative in the country.

    1. She sure does… and she learned the ins and outs of corruption, from her MOB family in Baltimore!

  9. She’s the coward for not taking care of her district and the unbelievable cases of homelessness!!! Do your job Nancy, you stupid demented fool!

  10. He should have asked her WHY she hates Donald Trump, not IF…ya-think…?!?!?

  11. As a Catholic, she better go to confession for lying!
    There are “good” catholics and there are “bad”
    catholics. From what I have seen of this woman
    she certainly isn’t a “good catholic!”

  12. Nancy lost it today. Further, calling for more hearings on Monday, the day FISA drops. The games the Dems are playing indicate their fear. They are turning our Republic on it’s head because Trump promised to expose who and what the swamp dwellers are. Hopefully America is paying attention because the Dems fear the lose of power so much they are willing to destroy the Union.

  13. She has quite the hard time telling the truth. If she is an example For Catholic practice then its become more clear as to why so many have a difficult time believing in Catholic as a religion. Sadness. If she is a representation of Catholic practice then she needs to be locked up in the confession booth for no less than a year minimum.

  14. You call Trump all sorts of names but you don’t hate him because you are Catholic and that’s not how you were taught. You must have missed catechism on the day when it was explained that abortion is NOT accepted by the Catholic Church as it is the taking of a human life and as the 5th commandment states: “Thou Shall Not Kill”.

    1. I know a GOOD catholic when I see one and she isn’t a good one!
      She needs to go to confession, first and foremost!

  15. Peelousy hates unborn babies. I pray for unborn babies.

  16. PELOUSEY IS A LIAR!!! SHE HATES ALL AMERICANS!!! JUST LIKE HER EVIL HOARD FROM HELL!!!

  17. One can NOT be a CHRISTIAN or any other religion and agree that MURDERING HUMANS IS ACCEPTABLE. SHE NEEDS TO BE GONE BY WHATEVER MEANS BACK TO HER TUNA FACTORY IN THE PACIFIC!

  18. I don’t think Pelosi hates OUR President,I KNOWshe hates the President. Just like the rest of the Deminrats they hate he is not a career polittion,Hate he was elected over Hillary,Hate he has brought back more jobs,Hates he has lowered unemployment to an all time low,Hate him for doing something about ILLEAGALS INVADING OUR COUNTRY.
    THEY, the Demonrats,Hate president Trump so deeply they are trying everything they can to remove him as OURduly elected President,to bad it is all blowing up in their face

  19. If Nancy Peelousey is such a devout Catholic….why does she hate unborn babies?

  20. She is so full of crap and we have got to get her out of California. She does not represent anybody that I know that are in their right mines

    1. Her and her entire family need to be ran out of CA and into Mexico and usher wealth that she stole from CA citizens to make Mexico a great beautiful country it should be

  21. …as a catholic, YOU should be ASHAMED for bearing false witness to the Govt. body, and toleration more of it from your henchmen.

  22. As a Christian, I don’t have to be Catholic to see how absolutely deranged this woman is. She has accused many of hate, and boy when it comes back to bite her, she goes crazy. She was not ACCUSED of anything, but I think her actions said it all. SHE DOES HATE PRESIDENT TRUMP.

  23. In the first place, Rosen did not accuse her of hating the President. He asked her whether or not she did.

    Second, shall we have someone put together a montage of all the times Nancy has accused people of “hate”, including many Catholics.

    Third, how about listing all her obvious other shortcomings as a Catholic.

  24. LOL how dare she call herself a Catholic?! We don’t believe in abortion and she’s the poster child for PP. Typical damn lying politician! Time to go Nancy! And by the way go look at the mess in your district COWARD!

  25. Her Catholicism is highly debatable given her stance on abortion, but as a Roman Catholic my experience tells me that Catholics are not above hatred. As to whether she hates Trump I leave to her and her heart.

  26. As a “Catholic”? Poor Nancy has really gone around the bend on this one. Her own priest won’t allow her to receive the sacrament. A “Catholic” indeed.

  27. HER REASON FOR THIS RANT COMES FROM HER CATHOLIC UP BRINGING! NOT TRUE! SHE HATES TRUMP SO BAD THAT HER BRAIN IS LOCKED ON REMOVING A DULY ELECTED PRESIDENT SO SHE IS NOT SHOWN TO ACCEPT BRIBES FROM THE LOBYEST’S ON K STREET! FILTHY RICH FROM 30 YEARS OF GRAFT AND SCREWING HER GRAPE ORCHARDS IN THE ISLANDS OF COOLY WAGES! NOTHING HERE BUT AN INSOLUNT JACK ASS NEEDING REMOVED FROM CONGRESS!
