“WASHINGTON (AP) — Standing before a Congress and nation sharply divided by impeachment, President Donald Trump used his State of the Union address Tuesday to extol a “Great American Comeback” on his watch, just three years after he took office decrying a land of “American carnage” under his predecessor.
The partisan discord was on vivid display as the first president to campaign for reelection while facing impeachment made his case for another term: Republican legislators chanted “Four More Years.” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up her copy of Trump’s speech as he ended his address.
“America’s enemies are on the run, America’s fortunes are on the rise and America’s future is blazing bright,” Trump declared. “In just three short years, we have shattered the mentality of American decline and we have rejected the downsizing of America’s destiny. We are moving forward at a pace that was unimaginable just a short time ago, and we are never going back.”
Another Petulant Princess Peloosi Performance. Tried to upstage TheDonald and failed AGAIN!
LOTS of hilarious pix on Twitter this morning with suggestions on what REALLY was written on those pages she kept shuffling while she adjusted her dentures . . . . . . . .
Best one I’ve seen so far was “How to Apply Fixodent.”
He sure did deliver in inspiring those of us who are grateful for the accomplishments he’s made for the people during the past three years and for things to continue to improve. All of his guest were touching examples of the joys, promises kept and tears of sorrow we’ve all shed. Thrilled seeing our past and future in the bright future of a teenage boy whose dream is to go into space sitting next to his 108 year old Tuskegee great grandfather. I was thrilled for the black fourth grader and her mother who learned she had received a scholarship to attend the school of her choice after her governor of PA says he will defund charter schools.
Pelosi’s display of contempt for Trump and the millions of his supporters was censure worthy and removal of the gavel. She had a four year old’s temper tantrum that began with her breaking with protocol introduction and ended with her ripping up the speech at the end. Her justification was because it was filled with lies. When Rep. Wilson, yelled out to Obama, “You lie.” he was forced to apologize. So should Pelosi, to Trump, the nation and to all of the guest whose names were in the speech. She’s being roasted on the internet and deservedly so.
From the internet:
“Nancy Pelosi disgraced herself, her title, the US Congress, and our great country with this disgusting response at the end of the President’s State of the Union address tonight. She should be stripped of her gavel by the American public this November.”
“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.”
“Imagine being 108 years old and still acting like you’re 9.”
“Pretty clear the extent to which Trump has frustrated Pelosi. She thinks he’s an evil buffoon yet here he is, in better shape politically than at any time since his inauguration.”
“i didn’t realize how f***ing great that speech was until Pelosi ripped it up.”
SOTU guest whose brother was murdered: Pelosi ‘ripped our hearts out’ with her actions:
One of the best responses to Petulant Princess Peloosi’s hissy fit at SOTU:
And Turley is a Democrat!
Once again I agree with Turley.
Remember Wilson was reprimanded and had to apologize when he said Obama lied about ObamaCare during a joint session of Congress?
Pelosi said Trump’s speech was full of lies. She should also be held accountable as Wilson was. Even more so since she’s the Speaker, at least until after Nov.
Heard one report that the copy she tore up was the official copy for the HOR signed by President Trump. Destroying official government documents?
Yeah, that’s not quite how it works, Nance–
Well, Pelosi is a puppet, but what do you want to bet she will claim she had a some blank papers on her podium and that those are what she tore up, as a symbolic gesture of Trump’s impeachment process, and he not being her legit President.
And if needed, the original documents will miraculously appear if the need arises. Just verify Trumps signature on them
She planned to rip the pages and now has possible charges against her for destroying gov’t documents.
Nancy Pelosi ‘pre-ripped’ pages of Trump’s SOTU speech, video shows:
McCarthy on House Floor:
Idiotic. It was a copy of the speech, which was already read out loud to the public and of which there are now thousands of transcripts. I’d be embarrassed if I even privately thought that this might be a violation of the law, let alone expressed such an ignorant thought in public.
FYI – From John Solomon
Key witness told Team Mueller that Russia collusion evidence found in Ukraine was fabricated.
Trump is still delivering. Love having a businessman for president.
EXCLUSIVE: New Trump Budget Includes First Ever Chapter Defining Government Waste, Targets Programs To Eliminate Entirely:
Pelosi’s Biggest SOTU Mistake Wasn’t Tearing Up the Speech:
Well part one is over, Trump acquitted and the Pelosi lead Dem’s look and sound like spoiled brat losers.
Gestures aside, Trump turning his back to a handshake, (not that Trump should have fallen for her empty photo op hand) Pelosi, presumably destroying government documents, both only for a political gesture, the results of which can only divide our country more then ever.
The Dem’s ray of hope in Biden is failing in the polls, a lot of disarray developing in their party, and the American people left with nothing more than a Dem majority lead House of Rep’s that can’t, no make that, will not work with Trump on key issues.
Add to that, they face a problem with a Sanders or Warren and their socialistic base they helped nurture with all the entitlements they created.
Could be the chickens are starting to come home to roost.
In any case, Trump prevails and will continue to guide America for Americans. The Dem’s will fight to gain a upper hand, using entitlements to support their ideology of socialism, and expect the enumerators of American slackers to enroll a larger group of slothfully entitled to bolster their parties chance at the ballot box in upcoming elections.
Secure borders, crime prevention, stronger employment numbers, and honest health care be damned, The Dem’s will chant, “Trump bad, and free free free” forever to bolster their voting base, without a clue or any believable concept of how to pay for it without destroying the core of capitalism. Just reward the entitled so to maintain a death grip on their politico and eventually the economical decline of America as a result of their theoretical beliefs.
Like Margret Thatcher once stated, “The trouble with Socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money.”
Standing before a Congress and nation sharply divided by impeachment, President Donald Trump used his State of the Union address Tuesday to extol a “Great American Comeback” on his watch, just three years after he took office decrying a land of “American carnage” under his predecessor.…But this is a lie, and you know it. Crime rates have remained relatively stable under Trump. The economy is growing at a slower pace than it was under Obama. There’s no “comeback” under his watch; he is taking credit for trends that already existed, and which you denied while Obama was president. I realize this blog is allergic to graphs, but that’s because every single one of them proves this. Why is “Yeehaw” your reaction to such blatant lies?
