As Twitchy reported, reporters were lined up to take pictures of the hundred or so pens that Speaker Nancy Pelosi had lined up to sign the two articles of impeachment against President Trump. But even CNN’s panel was taken aback by Pelosi handing out the souvenir pens after the signing, noting that that’s usually reserved for things like signing landmark legislation, not a “sad and tragic” occasion like impeachment.
Look how somber and tragic:
Nancy Pelosi is so solemn and somber to impeach @realDonaldTrump.
Has anyone checked on her to make sure she's okay? pic.twitter.com/7jNnJi7rMc

CNN panel bashes Nancy Pelosi for handing out impeachment pens. It was a “jarring” “celebration” pic.twitter.com/oQlI8tgIW0

The worst they could muster was that it was “off message.” A little risky for the cause, you see. https://t.co/3W1lyLjTW3

Not off message, it's honesty

Yep that was pretty tacky. Downright disgusting actually.

You know Nancy screwed up when CNN criticizes. They only criticize Dems about once every 18 years.

I guess bossman Zucker caved in to seeing #CNNisGarbage trending and told his puppets to do a little face saving.

Wow they saw that too. And I thought CNN was blind. Go figure.

Solemn and prayerful, no doubt.

Her doing this was a really good thing. It reminds all the independents what a sham this whole thing is.

Did she do selfies too ?

What???? That is breaking news for sure. CNN was on the correct side of a story? Can we prove this? Sounds too amazing to be true.

This was a planned response.
CNN isn't the least bit surprised by Pelosi's behaviour, they are simply doing a little damage control for the Dems.
I'm sure many of the folk working at @CNN are doing something to celebrate as well.

Like that “Merry Impeachment” tweet from the Washington Post staff having drinks?
CNN's Wolf Blitzer: "They'll have those pens for the rest of their lives"
But a lot of them won't have their seats in Congress much longer!

The pens are even more likely to be collector’s items now that it’s been reported there’s a misspelling on them:
According to a report on MSNBC the pens had to be re-ordered. The first batch had United spelled incorrectly.

Check out the word United on those pens!

Commemorative pens for impeachment is absurd in itself. Of course they misspelled "united".
— Paul Morelli (@PaulOPinion) January 16, 2020
The commemorative Impeachment pens that were handed out had “United” spelled wrong on them.
It doesn’t surprise me that the Democrats couldn’t spell that word since it was a partisan, one sided, and divisive vote. pic.twitter.com/UQ026hLIsV

Bonus zinger from Sen. Ted Cruz:
Given the circus in the House, I’m surprised she didn’t use crayons. ? ? ? https://t.co/hGTIGvb2Ey
