House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lectured a reporter during a press availability, when he asked her if the impeachment proceedings had to do with her hatred of the president. She referred to her Catholicism, and said she has a heart “full of love.”
“Do you hate the president?” the reporter had asked.
Pelosi replied, “”I don’t hate anybody…As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone…So, don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”
It’s clear that Sinclair Broadcast Group reporter James Rosen will not be invited to the cool-kids’ table at the next reporters’ luncheon. After the exchange, “#DontMessWithNancy was a hashtag that raced to prominence on Twitter, where politics is a blood sport.
Rosen maintains that it is a fair question in the context of Pelosi hurrying the impeachment proceedings along in the House of Representatives.
