House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a petty, hateful, spiteful, and childish woman.
After Trump gave what is undoubtedly the best State of the Union speech in living memory, Nancy Pelosi stood up and tore the pages of the speech apart. It’s hard to find words to describe such an act.
FOX News has details:
Nancy Pelosi rips Trump’s State of the Union address, sparking huge reactions
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., apparently did not enjoy President Trump’s State of the Union address, tearing her printed copy of the speech immediately as the president wrapped up his remarks Tuesday night.
When Fox News asked her afterwards why she did it, she responded: “Because it was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives.” She added: “I tore it up. I was trying to find one page with truth on it. I couldn’t.”
On the heels of an impeachment trial, which is excepted to end in an acquittal in the Senate on Wednesday, tension was palpable between Pelosi and Trump. The president apparently “snubbed” the speaker when she tried to shake his hand as he handed printed copies of his address to her and to Vice President Mike Pence.

This brought out some strong reactions on Twitter:
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.

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

Trump’s best day of his presidency coincided with one of Democrats’ worst days. And there was no way for either side to hide it. https://t.co/hrJCEiHOtF

The only thing Pelosi and dems have is her ripping up President Trump's speech at the end. Petty and pathetic. Democrats are losing.

Pelosi may not realize it yet, but she might have just finally blown any chance her party has at any kind of victory in November.
The Democrats have nothing to offer but hate.
They deserve to be voted out of office at every level.
