During an appearance on Fox News Thursday morning, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham — who has yet to hold a press briefing even though that’s part of her job description — said that when President Donald Trump speaks later this afternoon on the subject of his impeachment acquittal, he will likely suggest that “people should pay” for daring to investigate and impeach him:

“He and the family went through a lot, he and this country went through a lot. He’s glad it’s over, he’s certainly going to talk about that. But I think he’s going to also talk about how just horribly he was treated and that maybe people should pay for that.”

The president seemed to preview some of what he will have to say when he spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday morning, telling attendees:

“As everybody knows, my family, our great country, and your president have been put through a terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people. They have done everything possible to destroy us and by so doing, very badly hurt our nation. They know what they are doing is wrong, but they put themselves far ahead of our great country.”

Trump also attacked Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) at the breakfast, mocking her for saying that she prays for him:

“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.”

Those remarks prompted an outpouring of revulsion on Twitter:
