Rush Limbaugh, conservative media icon, spoke out on “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning right after the very strong jobs numbers came out, saying, “The economy is roaring, wages are up, Trump’s approval ratings are up” — and yet House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her fellow Democrats “are devoted only to one thing: They’re almost sickeningly devoted to destroying” President Donald Trump.

On Friday, Limbaugh also called out the Thursday incident during a press conference when a reporter asked Pelosi if she “hated” Trump.

Pelosi fired back by saying she doesn’t “hate” anyone because she’s a Catholic with “love in her heart” — and that “hate” is not part of her life.

The speaker actually walked back to the podium as she shared her emotional response.

She said she regularly “prays” for the president.

She snapped at the reporter, “As a Catholic, I resent your using the word hate in a sentence that addresses me.”

Limbaugh and many others called her out for this.

He said he wanted to “remind” the speaker that abortion is the killing of unborn children — and that the church is firmly against it.

“Pelosi invokes her Catholicism on everything but abortion,” he aptly noted.

He also said, “If you wonder what hate is, it’s on parade in this impeachment” situation against Trump that House Democrats have been involved in literally for months at this point.
