Pelosi openly rips up copy of Trump State of the Union speech

Pelosi openly rips up copy of Trump State of the Union speech

Another sign of how much she hates Trump, on the eve of his exoneration of impeachment charges.

Trump’s State of the Union Speech was a long list of accomplishments on the economy and foreign policy, particularly taking out terrorists.

Full coverage here.

It was too much for Pelosi to stand. Not only did she breach protocol by making visible face reactions, at the end, just as Trump finished, she openly and visibly ripped up her copy of Trump’s speech.

The frustration and anger on Pelosi’s face was obvious as she left. When asked why she ripped up the speech, she responded:

“It was the courteous thing to do, considering the alternatives.”

    Don’t talk about my donkey that way, he has much more class than Pelosi.

    She is a very tiny, petty, warped low-life, who has been stealing from our country for more years than most of us are alive.

    Never expect anything more from this flea.

    Btw, when Rush Limbaugh was presented with the Medal of Freedom, she refused to stand.

    She’s garbage.

    No, I have said for years you are dealing with toddlers in adult bodies. Think about it, this is something a toddler would do. Trump has truly broken the left and they are so messed up they can’t even hide it anymore.

    “Our Democrat Party has been stolen by communists…”

    “I am literally disgusted with Pelosi…”

    “There are groups like us. Minorities that support Trump…”

    C-SPAN is lit.

    Dem callers are turning on their own party in droves after Pelosi’s embarrassing display at the #SOTU.

    I no longer use animal analogies when talking about Democrats as it always ends up being needlessly and unfairly insulting to the animal.

    George Washington among other founders raised mammoth jackstock as the donkeys could be used to breed good working mules. That’s means they’re worth something.

    Pelosi and her ilk are good for nothing at all. All she and her fellow travelers are capable of is ruining what other people built through hard work. The San Francisco Bay Area used to be, within my living memory, comprised of working ports. With a viable commercial fishing fleet. “Fisherman’s Wharf” didn’t gain its name for no reason.

    I don’t know if San Francisco still has much in the way of a fishing fleet. But now it’s better known for what you’re going to have to scrape off the bottom of your shoe if you are not careful.

    Frankly I have more respect for what I am sometimes forced to have to scrape off my shoes than I do for Pelosi.

      The farmer, George Washington, after America’s victory over the British Empire, received a gift from the King of Spain. The King waited until the Americans were victorious because he didn’t want any friction between Spain, France, and Britain in the event America failed to win their independence. The 2 jack Mammoth Donkeys were his gift (one died in transit) to the victors. Washington used the survivor jack to create a more reliable working mule by breeding ‘Royal Gift’ to mare horses in his stock. The result was a success and Mr. Washington became very wealthy as a mule rancher. The Oregon Trail pioneers valued these mules because of their strength, agreeable temperament, and less demanding dietary habits, compared to oxen and work horses.

      One of the history books we read in book club was ‘The Oregon Trail: A New American Journey’ is a 2015 non-fiction book by Rinker Buck, is an account of Buck’s 2011 journey along the Oregon Trail from the Missouri River to Oregon in a covered wagon. Buck discusses the origin of trail mules in his book.

      Well, that’s something.

      Michelle obama is a mammoth jackstock.

      But unfortunately, she has never been utilized for that purpose.

    Pelosi said it was a ‘dirty speech’.

The Friendly Grizzly | February 4, 2020 at 10:45 pm

All through the speech, I was watching her eyes and facial tics. She appears at times to lose motor control. Some of it looked out of context to what was going on. Even CBS’s video director couldn’t dodge that.

Nancy is not well at all.

No problem, Nan. It’s all digitized. we can produce a replacement for you time after time, each copy as good as the original.

She’s got to be pissed to the nth degree because of that snub and Trump’s slam after slam of achievements.

I think this captures her current mood,

She has had practice with the Constitution.

Still not tired of winning!

Thirty years ago, I wondered if people like Pelosi were ignorant of how damaging to America their proposals were, or if they were evil.

In the last 15 years, it’s been made clear, they’re evil.

I could be wrong, but my impression was that she was going to rip it, but she stopped when the camera panned away from her, then continued when the camera was back on her.
Pure low class Kabuki theater.

Eastwood Ravine | February 4, 2020 at 10:59 pm

Nancy has… a rage disorder.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Eastwood Ravine. | February 4, 2020 at 11:01 pm

    Yeah. Talk about ovary-acting!

    C. Lashown in reply to Eastwood Ravine. | February 5, 2020 at 4:25 am

    She lost her butt-plug the last time she ate dinner.

    Rage syndrome afflicts some dog breeds. It is sometimes called Springer Rage as it is often associated with Springer Spaniels. But it’s not just Springers. I had a Chesapeake Bay Retriever with rage syndrome. It’s genetic in origin, and the breeder had the bitch (I am using the word correctly, language police; female dog) produce the litter too young. She hadn’t yet manifested the symptoms. So my Chessie carried the recessive gene or whatever.

    Chessie’s already have a Rottweiler kind of ‘tude. Most retriever breeds were bred for English aristocrats. Labradors, Goldens, Flat Coats, etc. Not the Chessie. They were bred by the watermen of the Chesapeake Bay. All night long they would retrieve the ducks or haul in the fishing nets. In the morning when the watermen went to town to sell the night’s catch the dog would guard the boat and the equipment.

    When a Chessie is guarding your stuff nobody, not even your best friend who was playing with him just minutes ago, is getting near it. And a 75lb. Chessie with rage syndrome is truly frightening.

    And I would still rather have a 75lb. Chessie with rage syndrome AND RABIES around than Nancy Pelosi.

      Arminius in reply to Arminius. | February 5, 2020 at 6:14 am

      I don’t know if I have room for a Chessie anymore. Also I’ve soured on keeping gun dogs; in Texas every hunting lease I’ve gotten onto also the landowner leases out the grazing rights. It’s a separate lease. And the cattlemen put out poisoned baits for the coyotes.

      No way I can keep my four legged buddy away from those.

      So I’m thinking of getting a skunk.

      Or maybe some other form of weasel.

      That way I can be sure I’m associating with a better class of varmint than a Democrat.

      alaskabob in reply to Arminius. | February 5, 2020 at 10:28 am

      The joke is if you leave your hunting boat and gear with a Chessie as guard you will find them safe and sound the next morning. Leave a lab and the dog will be so happy to please it will assist the robbers in taking the boat.

        Arminius in reply to alaskabob. | February 5, 2020 at 1:20 pm

        No lie. We were having a BBQ. And we ran out of propane. No problem; we went to fetch a different grill from someone’s backyard. The guy didn’t go with us.

        We were loading the Weber grill into the back of the truck when we noticed a wheel had fallen off of it. So we turned around and there was the Golden Retriever with the wheel in its mouth, giving it to us.

        Tail wagging.

        I love Goldens. But they aren’t pit bulls.

It’s OK. Tomorrow President Trump will rip up Nancy’s articles of impeachment.

    Mitch has that covered

      Careful: mcconnell is not operating on his natural predilctions here. He is defending PDJT, but he will subsequently corner PDJT for a return of the favor.

      The favors he will ask of PDJT will not be favorable to us.

    At the pre-SOTU dinner with the press, Trump said his speech would not cover the impeachment and that will be reserved for the barn-burner he plans to deliver on Wednesday after the Senate acquits him.

    Seiously.. I dreamed about Mitch ripping up both articles, after the vote, and then the Senators step on them, as they leave the chamber. But, someone has to be the grown up.

      VaGentleman in reply to amwick. | February 5, 2020 at 11:43 am

      True. And, if we ripped them up it would just diminish the value of the video of her ripping up the speech.

After 8yrs. of 0bama? The more the Democrats wail and gnash their teeth, the better I like it.

The act confirmed it was the best State of the Union address in history.

Sadly, her meds didn’t last until the address ended.

…and Trump never turned and acknowledged her little display.

Bye, Bye, Nancy, Bye Bye.

I knew the democrats wouldn’t be able to contain their outright hatred for our great nation. I can think of dozens of PDJT SOTU speech commercials starring democrats. They don’t even understand how badly they own themselves.

MaggotAtBroadAndWall | February 4, 2020 at 11:07 pm

More theatrics. Whatever. Trump is still president.

Pelosi has given the ok to openly mock her when she finally drops dead – which can’t be a moment too soon.

Good thing it is on video. I reckon this should be worth a few million votes for Trump and the GOP come November.

    Voyager in reply to topcat69. | February 5, 2020 at 11:58 am

    The add practically writes itself:

    Video showing women and minorities working all kinds of jobs, blue collar to office work. Voice over lists the improvements in wages and employment.

    Then is asks, “What do the Democrats think of that?” Cuts to a clip of Pelosi tearing up the speech which background shots of the Democrats in the audience grimacing sitting and generally being sour about it.

caseoftheblues | February 4, 2020 at 11:16 pm

Every bit of hatred directed at Trump is also how they feel about most Americans. Once you understand that you can easily understand why 95 percent of the policies they want or do pass are so horrible and destructive to Americans

That wasn’t the speech, it was the 49’ers super bowl game plan.

Things are not going to go well for you, Speaker Pelosi, when you make Donald Trump look like the adult in the room.

She actually thought that was a good look. She might as well have thrown herself to the floor foaming at the mouth and chewing the carpet.I

The “master strategist”…LOL.

    Eastwood Ravine in reply to Toad-O. | February 5, 2020 at 12:08 am

    Pelosi wouldn’t be regarded as a master strategist (by some) were it not for a compliant media helping Democrats.

    mailman in reply to Toad-O. | February 5, 2020 at 4:10 am

    You have to understand that the people she is now representing, the extreme deranged left, that this IS a good look for them.

    Its all about the resistance against the tyranny of the Orange Man.

    Then again, not that long ago if a Boehner did this he would have been branded a racisty race hater and dragged from kingdom come for being disrespectful. Mind you…that geezer probably had more justification for tearing up any of Barry the Bringer of Lights speeches.

Morning Sunshine | February 5, 2020 at 12:11 am

I had commitments tonight, so I missed the speech, and came on to see this headline. I was so shocked I said out loud “Oh, no! You did NOT just do that!” And yet, I read it and yes. Yes she did just do that. Wow. Just wow.

    Guarantee this is what the fake news enemy of the people media will be focusing on…how brave she was ripping up the speech.

    Pity Pence didn’t turn around and give her a clap.

The irony, Nancy, is that your punishment is having to be you. And you’ll never even have a clue about that.

I usually don’t watch these things, but I tuned in for a moment, because Trump was doing a great job and staying on script.

One high point was when he gave Rush Limbaugh the Medal of Freedom. That was a big stick in the eye for the Democrats, and major chutzpah for Trump. The Dems hate Rush even more passionately than they hate The Donald.

The video of Pelosi tearing up the text of the speech was another high point. Trump is well justified in not giving her courtesy copies of any more of his speeches. He already doesn’t invite her to confidential briefings (like the strike on Baghdadi) because she doesn’t keep her mouth shut.

This will make a great Trump ad!

If the Dems can’t behave during these, just kick them out.

This act is about the election and preserving the DNC in the midst of its civil war. The DNC and their mysterious “Shadow” app are stealing Bernie’s lead and infuriating the party in general (unless you’re Buttigieg). The rage of Bernie’s many supporters could splinter the party for good.

The Dems needed to take over the news cycle and have an act that unites the party. Tearing up the speech for the cameras takes Iowa off the front pages snd focuses the attention of the party (and the media) on a dramatic gesture against a common enemy.

    LookoutABear in reply to Tel. | February 5, 2020 at 6:48 am

    Yeah that’s what i was thinking the motive was. But i don’t think the more adult dem voters are going to be impressed by such childish actions

Class tells, shit smells and water seeks its own level.

“the cameras takes Iowa off the front pages snd focuses the attention of the party (and the media) on a dramatic gesture against a common enemy”.
Better yet she could have stripped naked and ran around the podium.

    C. Lashown in reply to Buffalobob. | February 5, 2020 at 4:36 am

    DANG IT BOOB! I just barfed all over my keyboard with that picture flashing through my brains! Couldn’t she at least cover her ‘private parts’ and ‘udders’?

So much bi-partisan work was done.
Well… maybe not so much now.

That sort of conduct isn’t helpful to a working relationship.

Nancy Pelosi’ is another politician whose family has become immensely wealthy off the government.

hey, go easy on the old goat. she forgot her glasses.
she thought it was the u.s. constitution!!

About that handshake, I found a video of the 2019 SOTU speech and looked at the start of it.

Trump handed the speech copy to the VP, without shaking hands and then to Pelosi. She did extend her hand and they shook hands and Trump said some words to her. He then shook hands with Pence.

Going back to the 2018 SOTU, Trump hands the speech copies to Ryan, then Pence and did not shake hands with either one.

Way back to the 2016 SOTU, Obama probably kissed every woman while going down the aisle and even got a big hug from RBG. He gave Biden and Ryan the copies of the speech and did not appear to shake hands but turned around to start the speech.

So, there is no tradition of shaking hands.

The ripping of the speech was very tacky. Most Ds will enjoy the drama, the Rs will dislike it and the opinion of the middle crowd will be all the place. I suspect that people who respect the “Office of the President” will not look favorably on the stunt. Unfortunately, the discussion of the handshake and the ripping will probably overshadow what was said in the speech.

    EOS in reply to Liz. | February 5, 2020 at 6:26 am

    Liz, you hit the nail on the head: “Unfortunately, the discussion of the handshake and the ripping will probably overshadow what was said in the speech.”

    This jaded New Yorker thinks Pelosi, with malice of forethought, ripped the speech to create the MSNBC and CNN morning talking points so they wouldn’t talk about the speech content.

    Gee, Liz, you are sounding reasonable. That makes you quite a misfit in today’s world.

    mrtomsr in reply to Liz. | February 5, 2020 at 11:06 am

    During the Bush funeral, there were reports of controversy/ conspiracy that the programs held individualized notes for the recipient, I wonder if there was such a note in the booklet given to the Speaker of the house last night by the president.

    “Unfortunately, the discussion of the handshake and the ripping will probably overshadow what was said in the speech…”

    I don’t agree, Liz. Just about every SOU speech is ‘upbeat’ (except obamas’ – but what can we expect from a traitor trying to loot the nation and destroy our way of life?), so the content is just about assumed.

    Trump was VERY presidential, very powerful, very alpha. (When that man is in a room, he OWNS the room.) The First Lady VERY beautifull and graceful (though after 8 years of the trashy, spiteful michelle obama, who couldn’t be?), and the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh was brilliant television (and as he is struggling with cancer). THESE things will be remembered.

    Pelosi will be remembered as an ass.

I doubt Pelosi is consumed with hate. It’s just business and she has a base to tend to.

What a week!
I think we saw something historic at the SOTU address. Several events came together that will resonate for years.
Rush’s announcement of his cancer diagnosis on Monday was ground shaking. Rush is the man who, single handed, moved conservative thought from the province of the Buckleys and Kristols, and gave it to the common man. He spoke for and to the common man and assured us that it was not just OK to be conservative, but it was intellectually rigorous and morally correct. He took Buckley’s intellectualism and made it relevant to the common man.
In 2016, Trump became the voice of the common man. For 3 years, the left has thrown everything they had at him. After 3 years of constant attacks by our enemies, he has proven his worth; he has earned the title. The SOTU was the passing of the torch. Trump acknowledged Rush’s great contribution, and he totally rejected the left, assuring Rush and us that the legacy would continue.
Then, there’s dear Nancy. Her tearing the speech could not be more symbolic. Trump put all his chips in the pot, and she has called. This is a fight to the finish; there will be no quarter. The rules have been set; victory or death. Even the weak sisters on the right are growing spines; no longer able to delude themselves that the other side is not evil, just different. The impeachment stripped away the fig leaf that hid the monster.
The left always feared clarity; they knew couldn’t survive an honest picture of themselves and their motives.
It’s our country, if we can keep it. We rise to the challenge or put our tails between our legs.

Pelosi’s contempt is for the voters. The Republicans are disgusting because they voted for Trump. The Democrats are disgusting because they are stupid and fall for stunts and lies.

She makes me think about “The Picture of Dorian Gray” by Oscar Wilde (1890). Evil and hate have consumed her. If the Democrats (I know, if…) had any decency, they would force her to retire.

”I don’t hate the president,” said Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “I pray for the president all the time.”

Nancy Pelosi


I see a classic Trump campaign ad coming with that visual…

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Mudcat. | February 5, 2020 at 7:44 am

    I see one with the fist-shaking harridans chanting something I didn’t understand. Heck. I don’t even know what brought it on.

    Other good shots for campaign ads: DJT talking about 7 million off welfare. Then a shot of the clear division of those standing and cheering, right next to those sitting. Same for announcing NATO members finally paying their way.

Let’s see if Pelosi & Commiecrats try to pivot off of this today as if it signaled a positive turning point for them.

If they are this clueless and desperate, imagine how they will react when Trump is re-elected in the historic landslide they engineered for him. Imagine how they will treat us if they ever again regain power. We truly are close to civil war.

House Republicans should introduce a motion to censure Pelosi, Tlaib and the rest. By this point, many Dems must be convinced that their leadership is insane and vote aye on it. Let’s give it a try.

    Speaker Pelosi just signaled that this Presidential campaign is going to be the nastiest one this country will or should ever know. We always say “Think this is bad? Look at 1800.” But this one may well dive lower than that one did. Today’s Democrats are poised to set a new, despicable low in political opposition.

In the military we are told that you salute the rank as a gesture of respect, even if you despise the individual wearing it. Pelosi’s antics showed her contempt for the office of President of the United States.

This and the Iwoa disaster shows their incompitence.

Is that Ronald Lee Wyden’s noggin in this photo?
He must have had to go to the restroom and cry.

‘Considering the alternative’?!?!! What alternative, Madame Speaker? What exactly did you really have in mind?

Maybe Mitch McConnell should tear up the articles of impeachment after Pres Trump is #ForeverAcquitted

Do NOT donate to the RNC , donate DIRECTLY to her opponent so you know he gets ALL of the money and it isn’t split among other Republicans , including RINOS !!

You have to forgive nutty Nancy she had just spent the last 24 hours doing the same thing ripping up the caucus records for Iowa so it was a habitual reaction in her drug and alcohol altered state of mind …

Not, tired of winning.
The last ‘Women’s March’ (January 18, 2020), the one with the pink va-jay-jay hats, only had about 10,000 attendees. In the winter of 2017, there were several million attendees. For the march in 2018, 100,000 reportedly showed up.
The number that showed up on 1/18/20 was less than the overflow crowd at a typical Trump rally.
Apparently, more American women have decided to support things, instead of protest things. The March for Life attendance is growing, and the crowd is more often young and optimistic, instead of bitter, vulgar, and hateful.
Trump helped do that.

Late in the day, on November 3rd, 2020, democrats will cry and do and say unseemly things. For four more years.

OleDirtyBarrister | February 5, 2020 at 10:33 am

She is campaign video material and provides low hanging fruit. But are they smart enough to use it? After the quick uptake on the Rick Wilson and Don Fruitypants Lemon video, I hope so.

The people running the GOP, the House committee for elections, the same committee in the Senate, and the Trump campaign should all be replaced if they do not use her replacement as Speaker as a tool to win back the House.

Girls just want to have fun.

Maybe no one noticed, but it should be noted that PDJT showed the decorum during that moment that transcends the three plus years of tweets mocking the press and leftist.

There is little doubt that he was aware of Nancy’s petty display. And yet, he did not falter in his closing statement. He made no facial movements of anger or disgust. He left the chamber without a backwards glance.

To top it off his tweet about the incident showed the class lacking in American politics today. Highlighting the disdain in which the democrats hold the American people.

This is probably just utter frustration at how weak and lousy the Dem response was. Could they have picked a worse patsy? It’s hilarious that they chose some hokey mayor of talk to try to respond with her “actions over words” over all that this POTUS has done to improve the country. How stupid and out of touch can you get?

The 2020 SOTU address by POTUS DJT was a statement of recognition, triumph, hope and faith.
In the shadow behind POTUS sat the frustrated evil of division, exclusion, cultural Marxism, identity politics, destitution, de-population, de-industrialisation, despair and death.
From a tiny virtue signalling, anti-semitic country in the Pacific, led by a hijab wearing PM and her minority socialist globalist government, a PM who was once President of the International Union of Socialist Youth, who now leads an administration that embodies the small minded hopelessness of neo-Marxist corporatist globalism, the contrast between us and you is the stark contrast between dark and light, between death and life.
So many of us not in the USA look to the USA in general and POTUS DJT in particular with the words of RR in our thoughts: “America is a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere.”

Her extreme emotional state can not be PMS as she has been post menopausal for many years, it has to be TDS.

Lucifer Morningstar | February 5, 2020 at 8:03 pm

Perhaps Pelosi should reconsider her actions in light of 18 U.S. Code Article 2071(b) which states:

(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.

Pelosi mutilated and destroyed the official copy of the SOTU that Pres. Trump gave to her (and she accepted) as required under the Constitution. Seems to me that this could be a basis for removing Pelosi from office as both Speaker of the House and Representative.
