Evil loser! Speaker Pelosi is a total disgrace. Thankfully her reign of terror is coming to an end. She knows it too. #Trump2020! #GOP2020!

Pelosi rips up Trump speech at conclusion of State of the Union
By The Hill, February, 2020:
Asked afterward why she tore the speech up, Pelosi told reporters it was “the courteous thing to do given the alternative.”
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 only stood and applauded 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 claims that Democrats want to provide “unlimited healthcare” for undocumented immigrants.
The speech came weeks after the House impeached Trump for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and one day before the GOP-controlled Senate is likely to vote to acquit him.
Pelosi also made waves at Trump’s State of the Union last year, when her pointed applause at Trump calling for an end to “revenge politics” went viral.
Disappointed to see @SpeakerPelosi rip up the speech that mentioned lives we’ve lost and heroes we celebrated at the SOTU. No matter how you feel or what you disagree with, remember others are watching. This was unbecoming of someone at her level in office.

How petty of Pelosi. Ripping up a piece of paper doesn't change the facts that were written on it—Americans are winning, in spite of the do-nothing Democrats.

This speech was about American heroes and American workers. She decided THAT was worth literally tearing apart.
Absolutely disgraceful. pic.twitter.com/Cp0tg3AE1W

The Speaker embarrassed herself by ripping up her paper copy of the speech in dramatic fashion. So pathetic. #SOTU2020
