The speaker caused an uproar after she told a reporter not to “mess with” her in response to a question about whether she hated President Trump.
Pelosi was on her way out of the news conference Thursday, she stopped to deliver a terse response, jabbing her finger at the audience, before telling him, “Don’t mess with me.”
“As a Catholic, I resent your using the word ‘hate’ in a sentence that addresses me. I don’t hate anyone,” she told Sinclair reporter James Rosen.
“I was raised in a way that is a heart full of love and always pray for the president. And I still pray for the president. And I pray for the president all the time, so don’t mess with me when it comes to words like that.”

In a tweet later, Rosen said Pelosi “erupted in fury” at his “simple, if pointed” question.
President Trump also tweeted that Pelosi looked like she “just had a nervous fit.”
“She says she ‘prays for the President.’ I don’t believe her, not even close. Help the homeless in your district, Nancy,” he said shortly after Thursday’s press briefing.
In addition, Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted. “”Rosen asked best Q which exposed her. This IS based on hate. Everyone knows it. Pelosi answer was basically ‘we don’t hate anyone,’ but then called Trump ‘a coward.'”
In response to Pelosi campaign selling this shirt, social media users commented with different tones:
“The front of her shirt says, “Don’t mess with Nancy”
And the back of the shirt says, “cause she’s already messed up enough!” 😁
“Dems “Don’t mess with Nancy” shirts would sell much better with the truth: Nancy’s impeachment is a mess”
“@SpeakerPelosi, You need to take your position serious. Stop lying and tell the truth YOU HATE DONALD TRUMP. Selling t shirts that say don’t mess with Nancy is a mockery on top the mockery you already have going, DON’T MESS WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE NANCY”
“Just saw that Pelosi is selling “Don’t mess with Nancy” shirts. Just wondering…. Maybe San Francisco should have a “Nancy’s Mess” billboard.”
“#NancyPelosi should also sell “#AsACatholic” t-shirts with a pic of an aborted baby on it.”
