Democrat Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made an excellent case for term limits (and Super Poligrip) at the 2019 State of the Union address, which drew widespread praise for her nemesis, President Donald Trump.
During the speech, Pelosi caused a stir on social media by noisily shuffling papers and rudely reading in the background as Trump spoke.
A rep for the California Democrat confirmed that Pelosi was in fact reading a copy of President Trump’s SOTU speech.
Nancy Rudely Read Instead of Listened to SOTU
Naturally, Twitter snark erupted over the ill-mannered gesture, with some joking that Pelosi was reading Trump’s tax returns or impeachment papers.

One Twitter user joked that Nancy was actually reading her mile-long CVS receipt.

Many called Pelosi’s gesture disrespectful. Imagine the outrage if a Republican had done that to Barack Obama. They would immediately have been attacked as a racist.
I don’t care what political party you represent, I have never seen the Speaker of the House disrespect the President of the United States like Nancy Pelosi is right now by reading her copy of the speech.

Leftists Cheer Pelosi’s ‘F*ck-You’ Seal Clap
Nancy Pelosi also fueled Internet scuttlebutt by doing what some on social media characterized as a “f*ck-you clap” when President Trump slammed Democrats’ continued obstructionism.
“We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good,” Trump said.
That’s when Pelosi responded with this shady seal clap:

While liberals applauded Nancy Pelosi’s childish behavior, it bears nothing Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito was trashed by the media for making a face during Obama’s 2010 State of the Union address.
Nancy Pelosi Declares War On Her Dentures
When she wasn’t rudely reading or engaging in childish snark, Pelosi was apparently playing with her loose dentures.

Meanwhile, here’s what the rest of the Democrat women were up to: They selfishly applauded themselves but refused to cheer for the disabled or minorities. Great job, Dems!
Democrat women make a scene at SOTU applauding themselves but they refused to applaud Trump’s declaration that we’re enjoying record-low unemployment for blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and the disabled under the booming Trump economy#selfcentereddemocratwomenhttps://t.co/oqUbTnjb3m
