While House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may not necessarily hate President Donald Trump, she does certainly seem to loathe those journalists who have the courage to ask her difficult questions. Journalists such as Sinclair’s James Rosen, for instance.
Recall that last month she denigrated Rosen, a veteran journalist with decades of experience, as “Mr. Republican Talking Points” after he dared to broach a valid point about the Democrats’ refusal to name the infamous partisan whistleblower.
Now fast-forward to Thursday, when she repeated her performance by throwing an epileptic-like “nervous fit” (as the president called it) after Rosen, a former Fox News correspondent, asked her whether she hates Trump.
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?

Watch, and take note of her bizarre hand movements:
“Do you hate the president, Madam Speaker?” Rosen asked as Pelosi concluded her weekly press conference and began to saunter out of the room.
She immediately stopped dead in her tracks, robotically turned her gaze toward Rosen and then fired off a stream of angry vitriol.
Keep in mind Rosen didn’t just fabricate the question out of thin air. He asked it as per an accusation from House Judiciary Committee chair Doug Collins, who a day earlier had accused congressional Democrats of pursuing impeachment to satiate their “hatred of President Trump.”

Nevertheless, Pelosi snapped at Rosen again after he dared to ask whether the accusation bears any merit.
“I don’t hate anybody, not anybody in the world. Do not accuse me!” she roared.
(The president would disagree with that claim …)
“I did not accuse you,” Rosen replied.
“You did! You did!” the speaker maintained.
“I asked a question,” Rosen reiterated, after which he explained the reason for his question, i.e., Collins’ accusation that impeachment is based on anti-Trump hate.
“That has nothing to do with it,” Pelosi stammered as she trotted back to the podium. “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 of which we’re very proud. I think he is in denial about the climate crisis.”
It’s unclear what in the Sam Hill her ideological differences with the president — FYI, many of her beloved “dreamers” are straight-up criminals — has to do with anything.
“However, that’s about the election. This is about the Constitution of the United States and the facts that lead to the president’s violation of his oath of office,” she continued.
Except that, as noted by the 123-page report released by congressional Republicans earlier this week, “The evidence presented does not prove any of [the] Democrat allegations, and none of the Democrats’ witnesses testified to having evidence of bribery, extortion, or any high crime or misdemeanor.”
Read the report yourself if you need proof:
And testifying before the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, nonpartisan George Washington University Law School professor Jonathan Turley articulated his belief that the Democrats’ evidence for impeachment is “woefully inadequate.”
Finishing up her rant, Pelosi then turned her attention back to Rosen, who’d made the inexcusable mistake of asking Your Highness a tough question. OFF WITH HIS HEAD!
“[A]s a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in the sentence that addresses me,” the queen bellowed.
“I don’t hate anyone. I was raised in a way that is 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.”
Pray for his demise?
“So don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that!” she concluded.
Yet for some reason, the same left-wing media propagandists who routinely accuse Trump of attacking the free press — but who said nothing when former President Barack Hussein Obama behaved in a similar (if not significantly worse) manner — have chosen to ignore, downplay or dismiss the speaker’s attacks against Rosen. Hmm.
Did the media attack Obama & his WH when Neil Munro of Daily Caller was called a racist for asking Obama a question before BHO granted questions? Kaitlan Collins of CNN does same thing & MSM response is to call Trump a dictator—crazy liberal hypocrisy https://t.co/zNJWnWePw1

Leading the clean-up effort is reportedly CNN, as usual:

Meanwhile, other so-called “journalists” and “reporters” are describing Rosen’s otherwise completely legitimate question as “unusual” and praising Pelosi for her “incredible” performance:
Not the first time Sinclair’s James Rosen has asked an unusual question that has sparked Pelosi’s frustration. Last month, he asked why the legal rights of the whistleblower should prevail over Trump’s ability to confront his accuser, prompting this: https://t.co/jN25PG81lD https://t.co/i5N9JzshqR

Wow. That was an incredible moment as a reporter asked @SpeakerPelosi, as she was exiting news conf., if she hates the president.
She immediately pushed back, hard, at the idea.

So much journalisming …
As for people who aren’t trained Democrat Party hacks, on the other hand, they’ve responded to Pelosi’s outrageous antics by aiming their fire at her, not the brave journalist who had the courage to ask her a difficult question.

Glad to see @SpeakerPelosi is “keeping her word” to be thoughtful and prayerful about impeachment.
One day after hearings involving law professors giving their opinions she is directing Articles of Impeachment be drafted.
Salem witches got better deals than this.

The premise of @SpeakerPelosi rant is that because she’s a catholic reporters can’t suppose or ask if she feels “hate.” Its both ironic and disingenuous to shield herself with her religion when she champions policies that are fully contradictory to that religion’s beliefs.

hahahahah.. @SpeakerPelosi is hiding behind being Catholic? What does her faith say about her insistence women have the right to kill as many unborn babies as they’d like?
