Nancy Pelosi’s legacy was obliterated at the State of the Union address.
The moment she ripped Trump’s speech to threads, Pelosi cemented her fate.
We’ve learned that once the SOTU ended, Pelosi met with Democrats privately. One might think she decided to wise up and apologize. Instead, she looked to her base to justify her temper tantrum. In fact, Pelosi said ripping Trump’s speech made her feel “liberated.”
As Politico explains: .
“He shredded the truth, so I shredded his speech,” Pelosi told House Democrats, according to multiple sources in the room. “What we heard last night was a disgrace.”
Democrats gave Pelosi a standing ovation after she concluded her remarks, coming just hours before the Senate will vote to acquit Trump in his impeachment trial. The California Democrat then went on to salute all seven House impeachment managers by name, according to attendees.
“She said that he disgraced the House of Representatives by using it as a backdrop for a reality show,” Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) said leaving the meeting.
Pelosi’s remarks follow the latest turn in the long-running feud between the two party leaders, which played out during Trump’s annual address in front of the Congress and millions of viewers.
Seriously, Trump expected nothing less than vile disrespect from Pelosi. In fact, he was prepared to do battle. And when she made a fake show of cordialness, Trump didn’t reciprocate. There’s no use in being fake.
Clearly, the crowd went wild, chanting “four more years, four more years.” I’m surprised Pelosi didn’t immediately turn green with disdain.
Of course, by the end of Trump’s speech, Pelosi was ripping it to shreds. On the bright side, she sparked a few good memes.
Among Pelosi’s peeves was the decision to give Rush Limbaugh a Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Leftists lost their cookies over that one.
Pelosi specifically called out Trump’s decision to award the divisive conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom in the middle of the speech.
“He dishonored the State of the Union as an institutional practice,” said Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Ga.). “It was kind of outright pandering to his base. It was just a disgraceful display.”
Of course, Obama gave Joe Biden a medal once, and his was far-less deserved. In fact, we wrote about the exchange that was supposedly a surprise for #CreepyJoe.
“It was eight and a half years ago that I chose Joe to be my vice president,” Obama said. “There has not been a single moment since that time that I have doubted the wisdom of that decision. Joe’s candid and honest counsel has made me a better president and a better commander-in-chief.”
And Biden said the following: “Mr. President, you know as long as there is breath in me, I’ll be there for you. My whole family will be and I know it is reciprocal. “
Ironically, the same men that pledged their eternal love now share a soured bromance, as Obama decidedly won’t endorse Biden.
When the worst president in history won’t endorse you, there’s definitely a problem.
But I digress.

Pelosi thinks people saw her ripping up the SOTU speech. Wrong. What people saw was Pelosi disrespecting American heroes which the President gave great honor to. That’s what we saw. #Trump2020Landslide
