On Thursday, shortly after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced that she was calling on Democratic leaders to draft articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump, the president did what he so often does: Launched a hateful personal attack against Pelosi on Twitter:
Nancy Pelosi just had a nervous fit. She hates that we will soon have 182 great new judges and sooo much more. Stock Market and employment records. She says she “prays for the President.” I don’t believe her, not even close. Help the homeless in your district Nancy. USMCA?

But it didn’t take long for Pelosi to clap back at Trump.
During a CNN town hall Thursday evening, the Speaker noted, “The president is a master of projecting.” She then added:
“When he calls somebody else nervous, he’s the nervous one.”
Pelosi also took issue with Trump’s suggestion that she doesn’t actually pray for him, noting:
“When he suspects that somebody is not praying, he’s probably not praying. 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.
“It doesn’t bother me what he thinks about that. All the more reason to pray for him.”
As we’ve seen since Trump took office, he needs much more than mere prayers. After all, this is man who has :
- Placed children in cages
- Repeatedly attacked people of color and immigrants
- Sought to subvert the democratic process by inviting foreign countries to interfere in U.S. elections
- Suggested that his political opponents should be investigated and placed in prison
- Stolen money from our military to build a wall the majority of Americans don’t want to see built
It would be nice if prayer were the answer to the evils of Donald Trump. But it will require more than that. It will require ideas, organizing, and votes.
