Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi attend National Prayer Breakfast

"As president, I will always cherish, honor and protect the believers who uplift our communities and sustain our nation to ensure that people of faith can always contribute to our society", he said. However, the House Speaker insisted she didn't do this sarcastically.
On a separate note, Pelosi also told reporters she believes Democrats and the president can find "common ground" on lowering prescription drug prices, something Trump addressed during the State of the Union.
Pelosi went on to praise her fellow lawmakers for the work they're doing in holding the president accountable.
"I want to just pray for Arnold, if we can, for those ratings", the president said.
But it was Pelosi who won the internet last night with her patronizing clap, generating memes and other viral shenanigans showcasing the pure polarizing bubble the U.S.is now under.

Pelosi also didn't want to weigh in on the escalating political controversy in Virginia where the Democratic governor and attorney general have both admitted to dressing up in blackface in the past and the lieutenant governor is facing a sexual harassment claim.
"We will always protect our country's proud tradition of faith-based adoption", Trump said.
One subject that Pelosi was more than happy to talk about, however, was climate change.
