Pence: Nancy Pelosi Just Sank to a “New Low” at State of the Union

While a national television audience played witness to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s temper tantrum on Tuesday, one man had a better vantage point than anyone else. Standing beside her on the dais, Vice President Mike Pence was applauding President Donald Trump when Pelosi picked up her copy of the president’s speech and ripped it in half. On Wednesday, Pence told the hosts of Fox & Friends that he saw it as a “new low” in Pelosi’s speakership.

“I wasn’t sure if she was ripping up the speech or ripping up the Constitution,” Pence said. “The contrast here was a president who spent an hour-and-a-half making the speech about America and Nancy Pelosi in the final moments tried to make it about her. I think the American people see through it. They see through the pettiness, they see through the politics of all of it.

“I think what they got last night,” he continued, “was a speech that lifted up the country, that celebrated the incredible progress we’ve made in our economy, rebuilding our military, strengthening our court, but the stories that the president told were American stories and I just know it was a great blessing to people all across America and it’s one of the reasons why you see the momentum growing behind this president.

“I just have a strong feeling that she’s going to be the last Democrat Speaker of the House to sit in that chair for a long time,” he concluded.

According to The Hill, Pelosi explained her stunt to her House Democratic caucus the next day, telling them that because Trump “shredded the truth, I shredded his speech.”

“I didn’t go in there to tear up the speech, and I didn’t even care that he didn’t shake my hand. In fact, who cares?” Pelosi said, according to The Hill’s sources. “But I’m a speed reader, so I went like this through the speech. So I knew that it was a pack of lies.  I knew it was a pack of lies, but I thought, ‘Well, let’s see how it goes.’ About a quarter through it I thought, ‘You know – he’s selling a bill of goods like a snake oil salesman. We cannot let this stand.’ So, somewhere along the way realizing what was coming, I started to stack my papers in a way that were tear-able.”

Well, we don’t believe any of that for a second. Pelosi absolutely planned this stunt beforehand; she wanted an encore of all the adoring publicity she got for last year’s clapback. The truth is, she’s piping mad that she couldn’t throw the president out of office, and she’s worried sick about the lame slate of candidates the Democrats are putting up against him in the election. Trump’s approval numbers are at an all-time high, impeachment was a bust, and Democrats have nothing to show for their first year in the majority.

She decided to rip up that speech because, at this point, that’s about all she can do.

  1. As a Canadian admiring American politics with the world’s greatest leader Mr. TRUMP and Pelosi looking like the WICKED WITCH tearing up TRUMP’s speech before the American public and not gaining respect from the electorate,LOVE TRUMP,,America won the lottery when CLINTON and her pervert husband were finally kicked out of the WHITE HOUSE, sure wish we had your constitution in Canada rather than that useless antiquated British Parliamentary system we are stuck with ,Had Canada joined in in 1776 to the BOSTON TEA PARTY NORTH AMERICA would be the biggest and strongest country in the world.As it now stands, our feminine leader is more for giving away Canada to Muslims and First Nations and GENDER EQUALITY which is against the laws of nature.

  2. If the Democrats had any sense left (doubtful) they would replace the Speaker to salvage what little honor they have left.

  3. All I can say is the speech President Trump gave could not have been better. VP PENCE THANK GOD THE CHAIRS YOU & PELOSI WERE SITTING IN HAD ARMS YOU WERE SO FAR OVER TO YOUR RIGHT IF THE ARMS WERE NOT THERE YOU WOULD HAVE FALLEN UNTO THE FLOOR, HOW IGNORANT OF PELOSI OF TRYING TO SPEAK TO YOU & OTHERS WHILE PRESIDENT TRUMP WAS SPEAKING.

  4. Pelosi Violated 18 U.S. Code 2071[B]. they can spin it any way they want, she DID NOT tear up “HER” copy of the speech, she tore up THE HOUSE copy, which is an official document of The House!! Prosecute her, PERIOD!
