During National Prayer Breakfast Speech Trump Declares War on Pelosi and Romney

The Democrats took their shot at the President and missed.

He is not going to turn his cheek.

And he said so this morning during a speech, at of all places, a National Prayer Breakfast speech.

Hell hath no fury like a Roy Cohn-mentored president viciously attacked by an opposing party.

The Daily Mail reports:
Donald Trump slammed Nancy Pelosi and Mitt Romney for using their faith to justify their actions in the impeachment process during his remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday morning.

He did not mention the two by name but his meaning was clear.

'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's not so. So many people have been hurt, and we can't let that go on. I will be discussing that a little bit later at the White House,' he said.

Romney was the lone Republican to find Trump guilty on one article of impeachment: abuse of power. He said in his remarks on the Senate floor Wednesday that it was his faith – Romney is a devout Mormon – that led him to that decision.

Pelosi, a devout Catholic, has repeatedly said she prays for the president. She was seated at the head table during Trump's remarks and shook her head at one point during them. She pursed her lips a few times as he spoke. The speaker launched the impeachment inquiry into the president in September.

The president admitted he was having trouble liking his political enemies now that his impeachment trial is over.

''We are grateful to the people of this room for the lovely show to religion, not one religion, but many religions. They are brave, they are brilliant, they are fighters, they like people and sometimes they hate people. I'm sorry. I apologize. I am trying to learn. Not easy. It's not easy. When they impeach you for nothing, and you're supposed to like them, it's not easy, folks. I do my best,' he said...

Harvard professor Arthur Brooks, in his key note address at the breakfast, urged those present not to hold political enemies in contempt, but to do as Jesus preached and 'love your enemies.'

'I don't know if I agree with you,' Trump said to Brooks when it was his turn to speak. And then he proceeded to launch his attacks on Pelosi and Romney.
I love political rivals viciously fighting. It means they have less time to harass us.



  1. “Christian” Trump to Brooks, “I don’t know if I agree with Christ”.

    1. Indeed. Compare that to Immaculee Ilibagia who spent 90 days in a small bathroom with 9 women hiding from Hutu fighters who murdered her whole family and wanted to kill all of them (see her book "Left to Tell"). She was able to forgive.

    2. Well it’s one thing to have your family murdered and another to have muh feels hurt, when your the great orange.

  2. Love your enemies does not mean bending over and letting them f*ck you in the ass.
