President Trump began his speech at the National Prayer Breakfast with a slam to Nancy Pelosi and Democrats.
The president went there in a big way with a reference to people like Pelosi who say they are “praying for you” but they aren’t. Nancy Pelosi repeatedly said she was praying for President Trump during the impeachment process (see video below). She said it so many times that Saturday Night Live even had a skit about it on a recent show. Tucker Carlson had the best take on Pelosi’s “prayerful” moments during ‘Tucker Carlson Tonight’ last night (see below).
He called Pelosi and Democrats involved in impeachment corrupt and Republicans courageous.
Watch the video below where Nancy Pelosi is sitting to the right in purple while President Trump says this:
“I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong. Nor do I like people who say ‘I pray for you’ when they know that that’s not so. So many people have been hurt and we can’t let that go on.”
