Rush Limbaugh, the conservative political commentator and radio host, 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.

The U.S. added 266,000 jobs in the month of November — with unemployment falling to a 50-year low, at 3.5 percent.

Analysts had expected a gain of about 180,000, according to MarketWatch.

Limbaugh also called out the Thursday incident during Pelosi’s weekly press conference when a reporter asked the speaker if she “hates” Trump.

When do you think the country should re-open and get back to work?

Pelosi fired back by saying she doesn’t “hate anybody.”

She said 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 also said she believes Trump is a “coward.”

“I think this president is a coward when it comes to helping our kids who are afraid of gun violence,” she said. “I think that he is cruel when he doesn’t deal with helping our dreamers, of which we are very proud of. I think he is in denial about the climate crisis. However, that’s about the election.”

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 for months.
