‘I was raised in a Catholic house, and we don’t hate anybody. Not anybody in the world. So don’t you accuse me.’
As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was exiting her weekly press conference Thursday — which focused on the House drafting articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump — reporter James Rosen stopped Pelosi in her tracks.
How did Pelosi respond?
With that, an angry Pelosi stopped, turned, pointed her finger at Rosen, and walked toward him as cameras furiously snapped.
“I don’t hate anybody,” Pelosi said sharply. “I was raised in a Catholic house, and we don’t hate anybody. Not anybody in the world. So don’t you accuse me.”
“I did not accuse you, I asked a question,” Rosen replied while Pelosi shot back, “You did. You did.”
Rosen went on to explain that U.S. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) of the House Judiciary Committee “suggested yesterday that the Democrats are doing this simply because they don’t like the guy. I think it is an important point.”
