As we told you Tuesday night at the end of President Trump’s State of the Union speech, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi personally shredded a copy of the president’s address:
WOW: Nancy Pelosi angrily ripping up copy of Trump’s SOTU speech is best evidence yet the ‘Democrats are losing’ https://t.co/vuH66JX90m

Over the course of the entire speech, Democrats basically got owned, and Pelosi’s response only confirmed that.
Pelosi explained her actions this way:
PELOSI on why she ripped up speech “It was a courteous thing to do.” She added it was a “dirty speech.” #SOTU

“The alternatives”? And what might those have been?

That’s certainly how it came across.

The Democrat response (or lack thereof at some points) was unreal, even for the Democrats.
This is rich… here’s how Pelosi’s spinning the evening:
Democrats will never stop extending the hand of friendship to get the job done #ForThePeople. We will work to find common ground where we can, but will stand our ground where we cannot. #SOTU pic.twitter.com/ELJqR9q4xD
