Democrats Demand Removal of Trump Tweet Showing Pelosi Rip Up SOTU Speech

Democrats Demand Removal of Trump Tweet Showing Pelosi Rip Up SOTU Speech

Facebook’s response: “Sorry, are you suggesting the President didn’t make those remarks and the Speaker didn’t rip the speech?”

President Trump tweeted a video that shows the most uplifting and heartwarming parts of his SOTU address interwoven with current House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ripping up the speech.

The video is good and gets its point across, a fact apparently not lost on Democrats who are mobilizing to get it removed from social media.


According to reports, Pelosi herself is outraged and has sought help from “House allies” to get Twitter to take down the tweet.

Politico reports:

House Democrats blasted Twitter and Facebook on Friday for hosting what they called a misleadingly edited video posted by President Donald Trump that features House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripping up his State of the Union speech.

The incident is the latest test of the companies’ new policies on manipulated media.

The video, posted Thursday, splices in footage of Pelosi’s paper-shredding amid moments in which Trump honored the last surviving Tuskegee Airman, announced the reunion of a service member with his family and praised a fallen soldier, among other parts of Tuesday’s address. Pelosi in fact tore up the document at the end of the speech, an action that prompted fierce attacks from Republicans.

. . . .

“Hey @Twitter, this video is clearly edited in a way that’s intended to mislead viewers,” Rep. David Cicilline (D-R.I.) tweeted Friday. “You should take it down.”

Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) chimed in: “This video is doctored. It has been up, and pinned to the President’s page, for nearly a day. Trump posted it to deceive Americans about @SpeakerPelosi ‘s actions and record.”

Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, also took aim at the companies over the video, tweeting, “The American people know that the President has no qualms about lying to them — but it is a shame to see Twitter and Facebook, sources of news for millions, do the same.”

Neither Twitter nor Facebook appear likely to budge on this bizarre barrage of Democrat outrage.

Politico continues:

But both companies indicated they will not take action against the video.

“Sorry, are you suggesting the President didn’t make those remarks and the Speaker didn’t rip the speech?” Facebook spokesperson Andy Stone tweeted in response to Hammill.

Stone told POLITICO the video does not violate Facebook’s policies against clips that would “mislead someone into thinking that a subject of the video said words that they did not actually say.”

Twitter spokesperson Katie Rosborough said the company’s new policies against “synthetic and manipulated media” will not take effect until March 5, as previously announced, and the social network will not retroactively review Trump’s tweet or others featuring the video.

For his part, President Trump appears to be enjoying Pelosi’s latest hissy fit because he has “pinned” the tweet to the top of his Twitter profile page.

At least they stood firm, for now. Slippery slope…and all that.

please pass the popcorn.

To Democrats, the Constitution is unconstitutional.

They are at war with the very concept of Americanism = limiting government to maximize personal liberty.

Democrats like totalitarians throughout history want unlimited government.

    You’d find this video interesting. Should be shown in every high school yearly and to all voters during the two weeks before a federal election,

      The John Birch Society is not an improvement over the Democrats.

        Edward in reply to Valerie. | February 9, 2020 at 9:58 am

        Rockefeller Republicans can agree, as can Never Trumpers. Others actually on the right might not agree with the posturing. There are any number of issues where the Birchers are far better than Socialist-Democrats. Of course the Birch reputation is the result of Socialist-Democrat demonization for decades.

        I wouldn’t join the Birchers, but neither would I claim they are no better than Socialist-Democrats, Socialists, Communists, Maoists, Fidelistas and assorted other fellow travelers all of the same ilk.

If this video were to be considered “deceptive,” what advertisement would NOT meet that definition?

    amwick in reply to Anonamom. | February 9, 2020 at 6:48 am

    TY, that is the slippery slope.. Especially campaign ads.

    JOHN B in reply to Anonamom. | February 9, 2020 at 8:45 pm

    Bloomberg and other Democrats keep showing pictures of children in camps (taken in 2014 when Obama was in control) and keep claiming the pictures show President Trump’s actions. No matter how many times they are caught with this lie.

    But that’s not deceptive in their twisted minds.

    By the way, I’d love to see the videos of Nancy practicing ripping up the speech in the days prior to the speech. It was so obvious it was a planned action-not a “spontaneous” response.

Eastwood Ravine | February 8, 2020 at 8:28 pm

Nancy pre-planned it by pre-ripping the official State of the Union letter to Congress would be an advantage to Democrats’s politically.

That the Democrats are freaking out over it and trying to get the video of it suppressed means they’ve either done some internal polling or ran it in front of a focus group. Most rank-and-file Democrats are abhorred by it. That video alone, smartly played, would probably flip the House to the Republicans.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to Eastwood Ravine. | February 8, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    It seems to me that Dems are collectively suffering from the Peter Principle.

    For younger people on the forum:

    “The Peter Principle is an observation that the tendency in most organizational hierarchies, such as that of a corporation, is for every employee to rise in the hierarchy through promotion until they reach a level of respective incompetence.”

    I have been amazed at how many young people, including college graduates, are unaware of this.

2016 was the best vote I ever cast.

All the earlier ones were just practice.

That was a fake video, I just happen to have the real one handy……….without fakery.

Is Vegas taking odds on Pelosi serving out her term as Speaker subject to a recall?

Democrats are not too smart. By making a big deal out of this they are keeping it in the news. You’d think they would want to be quiet and get it behind them. Trump obviously knows how to push their buttons.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to UserP. | February 8, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    Yep the Streisand effect.

    “The Streisand effect is a phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.”

    She really screwed up.

      Everything the Left does ends up with the unintended consequences. Now, there are two parts to this, one being a legitimate unintended consequence, and the other an unintended consequence that was actually their game plan all along, but they sold the idea with the expectation of the expected consequence. California is an example of the latter, where they want to keep making things worse so that more money flows in. Trump is a case of the former, where they are actually screwing themselves with the consequences.

So, when the dumbocrats wail about Trump saying “I can do whatever I want” – which is TOTALLY out of context and the basis of their dictator charge – is that not also deceptive editing? Or does deceptive editing apply only to video footage?

    CorkyAgain in reply to MrE. | February 9, 2020 at 12:51 am

    There’s nothing deceptive about this video. It shows the actual context of Pelosi’s action ripping up the speech.

    She and the Dem’s might try to say she was only reacting to the other parts of the President’s speech, but that attempt fails when you remember that they also sat on their hands when each and every one of these guests were introduced and their stories told.

    You own it, Nancy, and it won’t be forgotten.

      Given she said “ I tore it up. I was trying to find one page with truth on it. I couldn’t,”

      That excuse from dems doesn’t wash.

What’s making Pelosi and the Democrats delirious with anger? Trump just did something they would do. And FB and Twitter compound the anger by not reflexively doing their bidding. Something seems to have changed.

    Perhaps Facebook and Twitter are reading the tea leaves as to Trump’s re-election chances?

      Or they are worried about being reclassified as a news site and lose their platform protections.

        Milhouse in reply to rabidfox. | February 10, 2020 at 4:01 pm

        Reclassified as a what, and lose their what? Your comment makes no sense at all. There are no such classifications as “news site” or “platform”. There are publishers, common carriers, and interactive computer services. Publishers are responsible for everything they publish; common carriers and interactive computer services are not. Common carriers simply carry whatever anyone sends, without touching it; if they don’t they become publishers. Interactive computer services can moderate user-provided content to remove whatever they find offensive, without thereby becoming publishers.

You know THAT would make a GREAT background for a slew of memes for the creative …

Imagine if printed on that white paper it said “Dems 2020 Chances”, or “Biden 2020”, or “Dems Impeachment Plan” … “Our plan to get Trump” …

Nan the Ripper is a fake video? Am I going to believe the protesting libtard or my own lying eyes?

Nan,don’t do the crime if you and your minions can’t do the time. It was a stupid stunt on your part and now you get to own it.

Her, and the horse she rode in….

Americans demand removal of Pelosi.

Dear Speaker Pelosi, You got played 🙂

“ Sorry, are you suggesting the President didn’t make those remarks and the Speaker didn’t rip the speech?”

You know – this has been just a great week. Yep it has!

This is the cherry on top of a banana split and I’m still not tired of winning!

Pelosi is starting to realize that her little performance turned out to be a massive self-own.

Imagine if the House had presented an Official, signed historical government record/document to The White House. Imagine President Donald J. Trump accepts the document on behalf of the White House and American people. He then proceeds to rip it in half. Now imagine the document contained stories of American exceptionalism.

The democrats would scream for more impeachment, or for PDJT to resign. Many Republicans would demand some sort of accountability, and rightly so. I see media experts and lefty lawyers claiming “Naw, that wasn’t illegal.” Really imagine if PDJT had done the same thing. 100% they would claim it was a felony. TDS is real, and nancy pelosi has an incurable case of it.

We conservatives love this stuff, but most people are only dimly aware that it happened, if they even know at all. So we are just preaching to the choir. Still it will part of a lovely montage in the October Campaign ads so perhaps it will be useful then.

    rabidfox in reply to Hodge. | February 9, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Hodge, I think a lot of people WERE watching the SOTU because they wanted to see if Trump was going to crash and burn by using this speech to bludgeon the prosecution. Instead they saw two things: 1) a very Presidential and upbeat speech as 2) the dems acting like immature 3-year olds. Petty. Nasty. Negative. Anti-American.

Objection, your honor, that exhibit is prejudicial.
How is it prejudicial, counsel?
Your honor, if that exhibit is admitted, it will destroy my entire case.

For some reason the reply buttons are disabled.

I don’t think Pelosi is stupid or incompetent. She is elected by her peers. Not the same as rising in a bureaucracy.

She is in an impossible position. Her party has, for decades, won elections by assembling a coalition of minority interests, and now the contradictory interests are breaking the coalition. Jews, Muslims, and feminists are ripping the seams. Blacks and illegal immigrants have competing interests.

Trump reinvented politics by assembling a coalition of majority interests. Trump supporters are much more comfortable with each other. I watch the chat sites, and Trump supporters are much more tolerant of dissenting opinions and minority lifestyles. It boils down to two fundamental principles: free speech, and don’t bully weaker people.

Trump supporters relish the prospect of running against Bernie , because he has clearly stated proposals that can be debated. He is not some groomed mystery guy out of nowhere, like Obama or Buttigieg.

Try to imagine the Phone company terminating your service because they don’t like what you say!

    Milhouse in reply to TRF. | February 10, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    Facebook and Twitter are not the phone company. They regularly remove content they deem offensive or inaccurate. They would have removed this one if they had a problem with it. But they don’t.
