“Nasty” Nancy Pelosi — the “leader” of the flailing Democratic Party — drew volcanic backlash after furiously ripping up President Trump’s State of the Union speech after he delivered a stirring address to the nation.
When Fox News asked why she did it, Pelosi said: “Because it was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives.”
Nancy later added: “I tore it up. I was trying to find one page with truth on it. I couldn’t.”

Most people felt that Pelosi was retaliating because President Trump appeared to snub her by refusing to shake her hand when she introduced him at the start of the evening.
The White House responded to Nancy’s latest immature gesture by saying that Nancy disrespected the SOTU honorees that the President spotlighted throughout the evening.
“Speaker Pelosi just ripped up:
- One of our last surviving Tuskegee Airmen.
- The survival of a child born at 21 weeks.
- The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller.
- A service member’s reunion with his family.
“That’s her legacy.”

The Florida GOP echoed the sentiments of millions of Americans when it tweeted: “While President Donald Trump delivered a unifying speech for all Americans, Speaker Pelosi devolved to immature and divisive actions by ripping up the SOTU speech, which included the names of people who have died and served our country.”

Carl & Marsha Mueller’s daughter, Kayla, was a devoted humanitarian aid worker who was kidnapped by ISIS in Aleppo. Kayla was tortured & killed by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. On October 26, 2019, @POTUS ordered the successful raid killing Kayla’s captor. #SOTU #AZ04 pic.twitter.com/9mFEqv7Rf1

Throughout Trump’s address, Pelosi repeated the same, lame stunts she pulled last year by playing with her dentures and rudely shuffling papers.
There’s no love lost between Nancy Pelosi and President Trump since she and the Democratic Party have wasted the past three years obstructing his agenda and trying to impeach him.
Alas! President Trump will get the last laugh today when he rips up Nancy’s sham articles of impeachment after the Senate acquits him.
Meanwhile, here’s how Trump-appointed Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh reacted during President Trump’s moving State of the Union address.
