While President Trump gave a rousing, wide-sweeping speech on Tuesday evening, , it was House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) who stole the show with her immature, classless behavior. Our nation reached a new low last night, all thanks to this bitter Speaker.
At the conclusion of President Trump’s speech, Pelosi took her copy of the address and ripped it in half for the world to see.
How impressively distasteful.

The Hill reports:
Asked afterward why she tore the speech up, Pelosi told reporters it was “the courteous thing to do given the alternatives.”
The moment capped a tense address from Trump that started when the president appeared to snub Pelosi’s offer of a handshake.
Pelosi largely seemed to avoid looking at Trump throughout the address, instead reading from his prepared remarks and scanning the room.
She and other Democrats stood and applauded only periodically, even as Republicans regularly gave ovations. Pelosi could be seen subtly shaking her head “no” when Trump pledged to protect Medicare and Social Security as well as rejecting his claim that Democrats want to provide “unlimited health care” for undocumented immigrants.
Throughout the speech, Democrats behaved in the most un-American way, refusing to clap for the many things and people mentioned in the speech that all Americans should be proud of.
As the White House pointed out with a Twitter post, Pelosi didn’t just rip up a speech:
“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 tweet read.

While ignoring real Americans who actually make sacrifices, suffer and survive, women on the left have a bad habit of making victims of themselves. They do this despite having lives women who fought for suffrage could have only dreamed of. Women in the early part of the 20th century fought for the basic right to vote while these women are literally members of Congress and truly believe they’re oppressed.
Apparently, “oppression” is resistance to the pro-abortion agenda they so zealously fight for under the guise of “women’s rights.”
USA Today reports:
The Democratic Women’s Caucus in the House organized the effort. The color choice honors the women’s suffrage movement that led to the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920, which granted women the right to vote.
Rep. Brenda Lawrence, D-Mich., the co-chair of the caucus, said the group stands united “against President Trump’s backwards agenda,” which she said attacks “the foundation that was built by the women pioneers of this country.”
In a news conference house before Trump’s speech, Lawrence highlighted the women who struggled for equality throughout history and added that “the battle continues,” specifically highlighting women’s right to reproductive health care.
Protecting the sanctity of life is evidently a “backwards agenda” to these modern-day “pioneer” Democratic women.
Their behavior at the State of the Union speech coupled with Nancy Pelosi’s pathetic display of bitterness and hate perfectly illustrates the reasons why these women need to be voted out of office and why Pelosi ought to resign. She is a disgrace.
This band of disgruntled, privileged women are a shameful representation of women in America and it’s time for conservative women to stand up, run for office, and make the changes necessary to bring back morality, decency, and integrity to American culture.
