RUSH: James Rosen is a journalist spied on by the Obama administration. He used to be at Fox News. He's now a Sinclair Broadcasting reporter, and James Rosen today at Pelosi's press conference said, "Do you hate the president, Madam Speaker?"
ROSEN: Do you hate the president, Madam Speaker?
PELOSI: I don't hate anybody.
ROSEN: Representative Collins --
PELOSI: I was raised in Catholic house --
ROSEN: The reason I ask –
PELOSI: We don't hate anybody, not anybody in the world. So don’t you accuse me.
ROSEN: I did not accuse you.
PELOSI: You did.
ROSEN: I asked a question.
PELOSI: You did.
ROSEN: Representative Collins yesterday suggested that the Democrats are doing this simply because they don't like the guy.
PELOSI: It has nothing to do with it.
ROSEN: I think it's an important point.
PELOSI: I think the president is a coward when it comes to helping kids who are afraid of gun violence. I think he is cruel what he doesn't deal with helping our DREAMers, of which we're very proud of. I think he's in denial about the climate crisis. 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.
And as a Catholic, I resent your using the word "hate" in a sentence that addresses me. I don't hate anyone. I was raised in a way that is full – 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. So don't mess with me when it comes to words like that.
RUSH: Who does she think she is kidding? "I'm Catholic. I was raised in a house of love. Don't associate that word with me!" It's the only reason you people are doing what you're doing. You know, if you draw them out, we find out what this is really all about. They can't beat Trump on climate change, they can't beat him on gun violence, they can't beat him on immigration.
That's why they want to get rid of him. Their policies are being shredded. They're being wiped out. But they come up with these phony baloney constitutional excuses to get rid of him. It's because they are inept, and they are losing. Damn, this stuff ticks me off, folks. It just does.
