#PelosiTantrum: Social Media Still Talking About Pelosi Tearing Up Trump’s SOTU Speech
“In her rage it seems she just shifted the entire conversation to decorum and her pettiness.”
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi threw a tantrum last night after the SOTU by ripping up President Donald Trump’s speech.
Some have defended Pelosi because supposedly Trump refused to shake her hand. But she offered her hand as he turned away so it’s likely he didn’t see it.
Look at The New York Post headline.
Wow what a cover. Such sad way to end an incredibly unifying speech! #PelosiTantrum pic.twitter.com/M1aInP9SrC

Nancy’s #PelosiTantrum was a huge error on her part
Democrats needed to keep the news cycle focused on Trump’s speech as their key talking point was that Trump was lying
In her rage it seems she just shifted the entire conversation to decorum and her pettiness

Our political system here (UK) isn’t perfect, but our Speaker is supposed to be impartial and neutral – and seen to be so. He/she is removed from party affiliation while he/she holds the role of Speaker. Pelosi is a disgrace – whatever you think of Trump. #PelosiTantrum

To conservatives yes. To liberals it was seen as an act of defiance. I personally think it was childish and disrespectful. We’re looking at it through the lens of sanctity while the moral matrix for liberals is rooted in other values like care, etc.

Usually Pelosi has a lot of poise or at least looks in control (like the alligator clap last year), this makes it look like he got the better of her. A misstep on her part, IMO. pic.twitter.com/dIDcJq2KLV. #SOTU

Constitutional scholar Jonathan Turley criticized Pelosi on his website (emphasis mine):
That is why I was (and remain) so offended by this display. I believe that President Trump himself is worthy of criticism for not shaking the hand of Pelosi. I also did not approve of aspects of his speech, including bestowing the Medal of Freedom on Rush Limbaugh in the gallery like a reality show surprise scene. There was much to object to in the address, but presidents often make comments that enrage or irritate speakers.
However, none of that excuses Pelosi. At that moment, she represents the House as an institution — both Republicans and Democrats. Instead, she decided to become little more than a partisan troll from an elevated position. The protests of the Democratic members also reached a new low for the House. Pelosi did not gavel out the protest. She seemed to join it.
It was the tradition of the House that a speaker must remain in stone-faced neutrality no matter what comes off that podium. The tradition ended last night with one of the more shameful and inglorious moments of the House in its history. Rather than wait until she left the floor, she decided to demonstrate against the President as part of the State of the Union and from the Speaker’s chair. That made it a statement not of Pelosi but of the House.
For those of us who truly love the House as an institution, it was one of the lowest moments to unfold on the floor. That is why I argue in the Hill that, if Pelosi does not apologize and agree to honor the principle of neutrality and civility at the State of the Union, she should resign as speaker.
Pelosi tried to mend fences but remains stubborn since she showed a picture of Trump refusing her handshake. You can tell from the picture that he was already turned away from her.
Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship to get the job done #ForThePeople. We will work to find common ground where we can, but will stand our ground where we cannot. #SOTU pic.twitter.com/ELJqR9q4xD

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Missy had a hissy.
It’s worse: between the impeachment sham and literally tearing up a tradition – and taking a look at the malignant jackasses infesting the congress, we really are in a war for our way of life.
I remember observing the antics in the British House of Commons as a youngster and was horrified at the leftist loon the British elected to high office. I was also horrified learning how many communists were elected to high office in France and Italy. I could not believe these people were electing people who would return them to the fascism they defeated in World War Two.
That horror is now in the our Congress. And a horror it is.
Italy and France remain a wonderment in their fondness for social-communists.
I wonder if that is derived from their restrictive real property laws.
Mrs. Hissy will probably out do Hillary when Trumps wins again.
Indeed, Ms. Hissy was wearing her reddest red shade of Helen Thomas lipstick. To her credit, Hillary has greater discretion in use of cosmetics.
Pelosi is due another one over this coming out.
Pelosi’s DNC bought the APP.
How much money did Pelosi donate to the tech firm like Buttgrieg did?????
Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s campaign contributed money to the technological firm whose voting app contributed to reporting delays in the Iowa caucuses.
Federal Election Commission filings reveal that Buttigieg’s campaign gave tens of thousands of dollars to Shadow on July 23, 2019, for “software rights and subscriptions.”
A guest at the State of the Union address whose brother was killed by an illegal alien said it was heartbreaking to watch House Speaker Nancy Pelosi rip up President Donald Trump’s speech.
Appearing on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday morning, Jody Jones, whose brother was shot and killed by an illegal alien at a California gas station in 2018, recounted how he felt when Pelosi chose to rip up Trump’s speech at the end of the address, calling it “probably the most disrespectful thing I have ever seen in my life.”
“Felt like she ripped our hearts out. All the guests. We couldn’t believe it,” Jones said.
“I don’t care how you feel about somebody. That was probably the most disrespectful thing I have ever seen in my life. Because, when she did that, it just tore us up. We couldn’t believe it,” he continued.
Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship? Horse manure!
Nan The Ripper also declared that Trump’s speech was “a manifesto of mistruths”. She also explained that ripping up the speech was the “courteous thing to do, considering the alternative”. What was the alternative Nancy, tearing it to bits and hopping up and down on it like a three year old in a melt down?
Now as for the “hand of friendship” routine.I think the Speaker usually mouths something like ‘I have the high honor and great privilege of welcoming the President to the House”. Nancy simply said “The President” like some little girl jumping up on a table and saying, “Eeek—a mouse!”. Well she probably thought a big orange haired rat was walking down the aisle of the House–but her predecessors as Speaker have managed to keep similar opinions to themselves. So if we are counting coup on insults, Nancy got in the first blow.
Long horse ride into the wilderness.
The behavior validates Trump’s salty demeanor.
That was what she thought you of making your life better without the left.
She’s quite old … so she can’t blame this on menopause.
“Insubordinate and churlish”
I long for the days when POTUS merely delivered a letter to Congress.
I’m taking a break from the politics of pettiness over at my place to enjoy Watch Live: Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Champion Parade.
Because it’s too early to start drinking.
Adult beverages and parades go together….Imagine a parade in San Fran as marchers have to step carefully along the route.
Dems deserve to be obliterated at the polls in November.
Huh. I could have sworn those were the Articles of Impeachment that she was tearing up. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Classless from beginning to end. Substitute John Boehner and Obama for Trump. See how it changes?
Boehner tried to follow decorum, but he was also stupid, and he allowed obama to lead him around by the nose; in the process, boehner betrayed his oath of office. (We all know boehner didn’t fight back because of ‘tradition’ – he didn’t fight back because he’s a coward and he’s as corrupt as any GOPe hack who the left had dirt on. Corrupt politicians are easy to extort.)
Nancy Pelosi belongs in Judge Roland Freisler’s “People” Court 1944:
Pelosi is a sickening POS.
Since the written message is the requirement of the President, not a verbal delivery, wouldn’t both copies delivered be destined to the National Archives? Seems like the little hissy fit, had she actually destroyed the House copy, been a destruction of a government document. That said, did she “really” destroy the delivered document or were her theatrics fake? Seems like the original copy is delivered as a bound document, not sheets of 8-1/2 x 11. So did she remove them from the document or was this total BS moment (I know, either way it was BS but I think you all get my question)? The media needs to come clean on exactly what The Woman in White was ripping.
There is no requirement for a written message. The president has to report to congress occasionally; how and when is up to him.
Perhaps Pelosi should reconsider her actions in light of 18 U.S. Code Article 2071 (b) which 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.
The document that Pelosi accepted from the President on behalf of the Congress and she later mutilated/destroyed can and should be considered the official copy of the SOTU that would be going into the National Archives. Pelosi mutilated/destroyed said document and therefore is guilty under 18 USC Article 2071 and should be fined/imprisoned and should be made to resign her position as both Speaker of the House and Representative and forbidden to hold any office of trust under the United States for the rest of her miserable life.
Too bad RINO Barr won’t be pursuing the matter. He’ll just ignore it as he’s ignored everything else. After Trump is reelected he’s really gotta get an AG that will actually do something other than sit around with their thumbs up their hind end.
from what I have seen its the “conservative” side of the aisle pushing this meme mostly. and honestly it seems to be taking away from the points raised during the actual SOTU address.
also, where this was a signed document from POTUS does this not fall under federal record keeping standards meaning how she disposed of it technically illegal?
not sure as I have not perused the statutes.
and f*khouse (you know who I mean) …don’t bother typing a response with your pedantic crap. want to hear from other more intelligent people. a bot spewing wikipedia nonsense is not useful.
didn’t see this comment as I was typing
pretty much same question I had
Petty Pelosi indeed.
Dems: Trump is so immature that our Speaker of the House will prove it by throwing a fit after the SOTU and tearing up his speech.
Leftists: Yea!! She’s a genius!!
85% of America: WTF??
Sounds like she’s successfully made the SOTU all about her, rather than the President. At least so far as the press is concerned. Like an inebriated guest at a wedding who drops his pants during the ceremony—that’s all everybody else will remember about the whole thing.
We all know that whether destruction of government records is a crime depends on who they support.
Nancy ripped up the SOTU because it supported not here story; so much not her story. Can’t have that.
Usually the cream rises to the top, in Pelosi’s world, the crap floats.
Apparently the dem women are lacking in sartorial skills …. as white is not to be worn after Labor Day.
George Washington University Law professor and self described Democrat Jonathan Turley is calling for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to resign if she can’t maintain the dignity of her position.
“While many will celebrate her trolling of the president, she tore up something far more important than a speech. Pelosi has shredded decades of tradition, decorum, and civility that the nation could use now more than ever.
Trump knowingly triggers her and then stands back while she makes an ass out of herself knowing she can not control herself.
They should print the speech on tyvek next year!
She’s completely lost control of her caucus and now is always having to nod toward them. She’s a pathetic shrew.
Mini AOC replies. If you’ve never seen her you’ll laugh out loud.
This was not a hissy fit.. this was deliberate, there are videos of her prepping the papers, ripping tiny starter tears, so that she would be ready when the time was “right”.
It will be interesting to see if there is any actual payback.
This and the Dems reactions during the speech demonstrate their hated toward our country, They truly are Anti-American.
