House Speaker Nancy Pelosi recently told reporters she ‘prays for the President all the time.’ It happened when Sinclair reporter James Rosen asked her if she ‘hated’ President Donald Trump, to which she responded, “I don’t hate anybody.”
Pelosi has said on several occasions that she prays for him.
The question is, however, on such a ‘prayerful’ day like today as the House prepares to vote on the impeachment articles against President Trump, did she take time to pray herself?
This reporter inquired with the Speaker’s office about whether Pelosi did so, but didn’t receive a response before the publication of this story. The story will be updated if there is a later response. I asked the following questions:
“Did she or is she planning to pray for him today ahead of the House vote?”
“Can you detail how the Speaker prefers to pray? Does she do so privately?”
“Does she regularly consult a worship leader?”
“Does she set aside time in her schedule to do so?”
The President even requested on Twitter early Wednesday for his supporters to ‘Say a PRAYER! Maybe he was also trying to nudge Pelosi.
Can you believe that I will be impeached today by the Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats, AND I DID NOTHING WRONG! A terrible Thing. Read the Transcripts. This should never happen to another President again. Say a PRAYER!

When Rosen asked Pelosi if she hated the President she responded by calling Trump a ‘coward,’ ‘cruel,’ and ‘in denial’ on many contentious policies such as DACA and climate change. The word hate, however, was off limits for the Catholic lawmaker.
“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 a heart full of love and always prayed for the President and I still pray for the President. I pray for him all the time, so don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that,” she said.
On Wednesday, the House will vote on the two articles of impeachment charging President Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of congress. It is expected to pass and move to the Senate for a full trial.
