Nancy Pelosi Takes Donald Trump's Insult, Fires It Right Back At Him

“The president is a master at projecting," Pelosi told CNN's Jake Tapper after Trump claimed she'd had "a nervous fit."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Thursday night hit back at Donald Trump’s claim on Twitter that she’d “had a nervous fit” reportedly after she rebuked a journalist for asking if she “hated” the president.

Pelosi, who earlier in the day called on House Democratic leaders to begin drafting articles of impeachment against Trump, told a televised CNN town hall hosted by Jake Tapper that “the president is a master at projecting.”

“When he calls somebody else ‘nervous,’ he’s the nervous one,” she said.

Pelosi also rejected Trump’s belief that she didn’t actually pray for him.

“When he suspects that somebody is not praying, he’s probably not praying,” she said. “But I do pray for him because he is the president of the United States, and I pray that God will open his heart to meeting the needs of people in our country.” Pelosi added that she also prayed for Trump’s health, safety and family.

“It doesn’t bother me what he thinks about that,” she concluded. “All the more reason to pray for him.”
