‘So DON”T Mess With Me!” Pelosi Snaps At Reporter After Question During Unhinged Tirade
Finger pointing and voice hoarse, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday delivered a broadside to a reporter that might well apply to all of impeachment-era Washington: “Don’t mess with me.”
Nancy Pelosi snapped during press conference after a reporter began to question her motives for impeachment on Thursday. She was asked about her feelings toward President Trump, and the word ‘hate’ was used. As Pelosi began exiting the news conference, she flipped around and headed back toward the microphone in a tirade!
A reporter had asked, “Do you hate the president, Madam Speaker?”
Pelosi stopped near the edge of the podium, jabbed a finger and said tersely: “I don’t hate anybody.”
“I am a Catholic. I don’t hate anybody!”
Pelosi continued to point her finger and scold with a hoarse voice…
“I think the President is a coward!”
“I think he is in denial!”
Then she hit:
“As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone!”
“I pray for the President every day! So, don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that!”
…and they say the President is thin skinned!
“So, don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that!”
You can watch the full tirade here. It is definitely one of her finest, and she has plenty of priors!
Pelosi is unhinged.

She went on to call Trump a “coward” on gun policy, “cruel” on immigration and “in denial” on climate change.
“This is about the Constitution of the United States and the facts that lead to the president’s violation of the oath of office. And as a Catholic I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me.’’
Trump tweeted that Pelosi “just had a nervous fit.”
“She says she ‘prays for the President.’ I don’t believe her, not even close,” he added.
One must admit, Pelosi is teetering on the edge of a very clear problem. Impeachment has been a catastrophe. The Schiff hearings saw a decline in public opinion towards impeachment, as well as a climb in the President’s personal poll numbers. The House needed to gain some Republican votes, and instead they have lost Democrat votes, with many behind the scenes calling for censure instead of impeachment.
Then yesterday, Jerry Nadler began his proceedings, which ended in the Karlan Catastrophe. She came across as a bitter Rachel Maddow partisan. Then she took a dig at the President’s young son Barron.
Day after day, it just gets worse and worse for Pelosi, who is now stuck on a track that only heads one way, and she cannot get off the train.
Former special prosecutor Ken Starr stated about Pelosi’s presser that Congressional Democrats have pushed too hard on President Trump’s impeachment hearings and may force Republican senators to dismiss the case altogether. They have messed it up BAD! To top it off, Pelosi is NOT supposed to ‘tell these committees’ what actions to take!
“It’s an outrage to seize control of the deliberate process of a committee — [it] simply compounds a series of very, very terrible abuses,” Starr said. “The House Judiciary committee with its incredibly rich history needs to go into… an open session and debate this.”
“Where did she get this power?” Starr asked. “I am honestly surprised. Then again, why shouldn’t I be surprised? Because back early in the fall, she unilaterally with no debate in the people’s House says, ‘we now have an impeachment inquiry.’ Now she’s dictating the committee to actually draft articles of impeachment? It is an abuse of power.”
Insanity at its finest. Keep the popcorn coming!
