State Of The Union: Nancy Pelosi Tears Up Trump's Speech by QuietHammer(m): 5:14am On Feb 05
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday ripped up her copy of President Trump's prepared remarks at the conclusion of his State of the Union address.

As Trump finished speaking and most lawmakers stood to applaud, Pelosi stood, took the printed copy of Trump's speech and tore it in half. She placed the shredded copy in a stack on the dais as Trump made his way to greet members of Congress.

Asked afterward why she tore the speech up, Pelosi told reporters it was "the courteous thing to do given the alternative."

The moment capped a tense address from Trump that started when the president appeared to snub Pelosi's offer of a handshake.

Pelosi largely seemed to avoid looking at Trump throughout the address, instead reading from his prepared remarks and scanning the room.

She and other Democrats stood and applauded only periodically, even as Republicans regularly gave ovations. Pelosi could be seen subtly shaking her head "no" when Trump pledged to protect Medicare and Social Security as well as rejecting his claim that Democrats want to provide "unlimited health care" for undocumented immigrants.

The speech came weeks after the House impeached Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and one day before the GOP-controlled Senate is likely to vote to acquit him.

Pelosi also made waves at Trump's State of the Union last year, when her pointed applause at Trump calling for an end to "revenge politics" went viral.

Trump's performance was great. Very presidential. He made nonsense of whatever accusations the Democrats have against him by lining out his unprecedented achievement s in making America great again. It was a victory speech moreso as the acquittal takes place today. Pelosi and co should brace up for defeats.

He lies his ass out, how can he be defending health care when the DOJ is in court fighting pre existing condition. The economy crap is the most laughable, the economy is doing it slowest since 2016. The man child even refuse to shake the speaker hand. That garbage of lies does not only deserve shredding but lighting it up with a cigarette lighter.

Our view on this @MANNABBQGRILLS,

This is a New Low for Pelosi,

No matter how you feel or what you disagree with, remember others are watching.
This was unbecoming of someone at her level of office.
This speech was about American heroes and American workers.
She decided that was worth literally tearing apart. Absolutely disgraceful.
Many Americans will see it as classless and petty!

I am not a fan of Trump, as some of us may know that he's a bully and Racist but He loves his citizen no matter what. He has loves for Americans is so deep that he can do anything to protect them. So believe me or not, he's going to win the next election, let the Democrat before about the impeachment shit coz its not gonaa work.

A very bitter woman!

Left California in ruins while she's enjoying in DC..

If any disease comes into America, it'd come from CA and NY. Those places look like Kokota in India.


If exactly those criticizing Pres. Trump will lower their hatred and think they'd see he didn't attempt to shake hands at all with either the VP or Nancy, he gave out papers and turned around.

SHEY TRUMP DON GET EYES FOR BACK??!!!

Her actions is out of frustration. Trump can be a pain in the a.. Being a person that will have it all in your face at any opportunity. Democrats should be strategising how to defeat trump in the polls, but this seems difficult this their frustration.
