    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party’s 2016 nominee, said Thursday during an interview with Bravo’s Andy Cohen that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) effectively showed President Donald Trump was “untethered from reality” when she ripped up her copy of the State of the Union address after he finished his February 4 speech. Clinton was asked by a caller, “What do you think of all the backlash Nancy Pelosi got after ripping up the president’s State of the Union?”

    Michigan congresswoman Rashida Tlaib's snowflake side came out last Tuesday, when she was forced to flee the president's State of the Union address at the sound of Justice Brett Kavanaugh's name. Fortunately, Tlaib managed to find a safe space in front of MSNBC cameras, where she explained her walkout to Rachel Maddow : Even the mention of Brett Kavanaugh for me is a trigger[.] ... Just as a woman in America, the fact that he rightfully was accused and having an incredibly strong woman come for the public and the world and tell her story of sexual assault by this...

    Video at link: 1:37min, scroll down. At the beginning of his rally in Manchester, New Hampshire Monday night, President Donald Trump used the opportunity to chide House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for grunting and groaning during his State of the Union address and to recognize the Senate for voting to acquit him in his impeachment trial. "On Tuesday I delivered my address on the state of the union. And I had someone behind me who was mumbling terribly. Mumbling. Mumbling. Rawr. Rawr. Oh. Ha," he explained, mocking Pelosi. "She was mumbling. Very distracting. Very distracting." The crowd booed the mention...

  • Nancy Pelosi ‘pre-ripped’ pages of Trump’s SOTU speech, video shows

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently made tiny tears into her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address — so that her speech-ripping moment could go off without a hitch. As Trump introduced cancer-stricken radio host Rush Limbaugh — who received the Medal of Freedom during the speech — Pelosi could be seen grabbing the pages off the table. Video shows her making what seemed to be a tearing motion and then placing the pages back on the table. Photos of the sheets of paper show them face down on the table with small slits on the side, near...

    RUSH: Folks, it was such a joyous occasion. It was unbelievable and something for which not only me, but my family will be eternally grateful for. It’s a very, very special moment indeed. And I thank, again, the president and his family. Vice President Pence called after we left the Capitol and were on the way back to our super-secret location and where we spent the rest of the week. Oh, one thing. Do you remember later in the evening there was a young mother and her — I think it was two kids sitting just to the left of...
  • Pelosi: Democrats thought Trump was going to honor John Lewis, not Rush (She's really steamed!)

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi explained that Democrats expected President Trump to honor Democratic Rep. John Lewis, not Rush Limbaugh, when he referenced someone with stage 4 cancer during his State of the Union address. Trump, during his Tuesday speech, awarded the conservative radio host with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a day after Limbaugh revealed his advanced lung cancer diagnosis. First lady Melania Trump placed the award on Limbaugh in the middle of the president's address to both chambers of Congress. During Pelosi's Thursday press conference, she explained that in the moment leading up to Trump presenting the award to...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., proved how divided the state of the union is by the "petty childish behavior" she exhibited after President Trump's address Tuesday night, former House speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday. Appearing on "Fox & Friends" with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt, and Brian Kilmeade, Gingrich said he understands where the president is coming from when he snubs Pelosi. "Speaker Pelosi has attacked him for four solid months. She has called him the most vile names possible," he said. "You know, I introduced Bill Clinton four times when I was speaker of the House," Gingrich remarked, referring...

    We've had enough political news in half a week to last a month or more, but we know the velocity will only increase until the election. On Monday, Republicans and Democrats in Iowa participated in caucuses. President Donald Trump won the Republican caucuses in a landslide (somewhere north of 97 percent). This was not and is not news. The news coming out of the Democratic caucuses involved a myriad of issues that affected how the votes were tabulated. The result: The first partial results were not issued until 5 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday. It's hard to imagine a worse start...

    We didn't expect President Trump to use his annual State of the Union address to spread misleading smears about Governor Wolf. But then again, Trump will mislead the American people any way he can, in the hope that it will help his re-election campaign — and Pennsylvania is key to his victory. There's no doubt in our minds that we're getting under Trump's skin, . We are proving that no matter what he does to undermine and undo our hard-fought progress — we won't roll over. Our fight to invest in public schools and ensure our children have a bright...

    CNN contributor Van Jones warned fellow panelists, and Democrats in general, on Tuesday evening that President Donald Trump was helping African-Americans “in real life” and reaching out to them for their vote in 2020. Jones was reacting to the president’s State of the Union address, in which the president mentioned several efforts to help African-Americans specifically: What he was saying to African-Americans can be effective. You may not like it, but he mentioned HBCUs [historically black colleges and universities] — our black colleges have been struggling for a long time, a bunch of them have gone under — he threw...

    News Busters ^ | 2/5/2020 | By Curtis Houck
    What was going on CBS Tuesday night during the State of the Union? Do we need to file a slew of missing persons’ reports? Or was there a real-life Invasion of the Body Snatchers? Those answers seemed plausible considering CBS’s overwhelmingly positive reaction to President Trump’s speech. In their post-speech reactions, CBS journalists praised the “master showman” President’s “incredible remarks” that, while “restrained,” showcased “a strong record on the economy” and “emotionally compelling stories” about “great Americans.” Even more surprisingly, the praise was juxtaposed with condemnation for Democrats. CBS Evening News anchor Norah O’Donnell led off by noting that Trump...

    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 expected to end in an acquittal in the Senate on Wednesday, tension was palpable between Pelosi...

    President Trump went on the offensive against socialism and left-wing policies during a defiant third State of the Union address to Congress Tuesday night -- drawing groans from Democrats in attendance and prompting a furious House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., to rip up her copy of Trump's speech as soon as it concluded in a remarkable scene. Asked about the moment by Fox News afterward, Pelosi said she had destroyed the speech “because it was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives.” She also said she was "trying to find one page with truth on it" but "couldn't."

    Donald Trump served various television news personalities a lunch described by one White House guest as soup and filet of sole Tuesday—but soon the assembled anchorpeople were eating out of his hand. Much to the disappointment of folks at CNN, nobody at the long table—who included NBC’s Lester Holt and Chuck Todd, ABC’s David Muir and George Stephanopoulos, and CBS’s Norah O’Donnell and Margaret Brennan—bothered to ask why the president had gone out of his way to exclude the cable network run by Trump’s former friend Jeff Zucker. “MSDNC isn’t here as well,” Trump quipped—to polite chuckles but zero protests...

President Trump received an 82% approval rating from Independent voters. Via CBS News: 76% of speech watchers approved of the president’s address. 97% of Republicans approved of the speech. And 56% of viewers said the president’s historic address will unite the country.

    See video at link, starting at about 1:24:30. It is then about a 3 minute video until the end. After President Trump left the House floor last night, Nancy Pelosi banged her gavel stating both Houses were "dissolved." Shortly thereafter, she banged the gavel again calling the House to order, and then left the House floor. A man (not sure who, sorry) then took the podium and recognized Steny Hoyer who called for the SOTU speech to be entered into the record, and called to adjourn the session.

    A State of the Union guest of President Trump whose brother was murdered by an illegal immigrant has a message for Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Appearing on "Fox & Friends," Jody Jones -- a Farmersville, Calif., resident -- said that in Pelosi's decision to rip up her copy of the president's address, she effectively ripped the hearts of every guest in attendance out of their chests. "It felt like she ripped our hearts out," he said. "Everybody there. All of the guests. We couldn't believe it." Following the conclusion of the speech, Pelosi said in a statement that the...

    Here’s a question for Speaker Nancy Pelosi: Have you heard of Albert Einstein’s definition of insanity? You’ve been screwing up for three years, starting with the juvenile resistance where you refused even to negotiate over big national interests such as border control. Then, just when it seemed you couldn’t sink any lower than that cheap, partisan impeachment you engineered, you hit a new low during the State of the Union. Your mumbling and sneering smiles throughout President’s Trump’s powerful address were bad enough, but your decision to tear into shreds your copy of his speech and drop it like a...
