The verb haïr follows the same conjugation as regular -IR verbs in Le Présent. However, its stem is slightly irregular.
Have a look at the verb haïr in Le Présent:
Je hais les tomates.I hate tomatoes.

Nous haïssons les gens malpolis.We hate rude people.
Vous haïssez la médiocrité.You hate mediocrity.
Anna et Gina haïssent aller à l'école.Annie and Gina hate going to school.
Note that in the first person, je hais, you have no elision as the 'h' is strong = [juh - é].
It could also be confusing pronunciation-wise with j'ai [jé]
ATTENTION! The pronunciation varies between ai [é] versus aï [a-ee]
