The House speaker was walking out of her weekly press conference when James Rosen asked, "Do you hate the president, Madam Speaker?"

Pelosi stopped and returned to the microphones to condemn the question, telling reporters she is a Catholic and prays for the president.

“Don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that,” Pelosi said. “As a Catholic I resent you using hate in a sentence that references me.”

Rosen told Pelosi the question echoes accusations by Republicans and the GOP witness at the Judiciary Committee hearing Wednesday that Democrats are moving to impeach Trump because they don’t like him.

House to vote next week on Democratic drug pricing bill

  House to vote next week on Democratic drug pricing bill Democrats announced Thursday morning the House will vote next week on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Lower Drug Costs Now Act, recently renamed to honor the late Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings. © Provided by Washington ExaminerThe bill would allow the government to negotiate drug prices directly with pharmaceutical companies in the hopes of lowering prices of the most expensive medications, including insulin. Pelosi’s bill would allow negotiations for up to 250 drugs. The bill would also penalize drug companies that refuse to come to the negotiating table.

Pelosi denied it.

“I don’t hate anyone,” Pelosi said. “We don’t hate anyone.”

Pelosi said she has "a heart full of love," and prays for the president and even though she disagrees with his agenda, that is not the motivation for impeaching him.

“It has nothing to do with that,” she said. “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 it comes to helping our Dreamers, I think he is in denial when it comes to climate change. But take it up in the election.”

Impeachment, she said “is about the Constitution of the United States.”
