Top Democrats are at a loss for words.
Even the most nimble elected officials cannot explain what Nancy Pelosi just did.
And that’s because Nancy Pelosi was caught on camera in this compromising situation.
Donald Trump gave a rousing State of the Union address where he celebrated America and honored several American heroes, including a surviving Tuskegee Airman who’s over a century old.
But the Democrats hate Trump so much—and some radical members of the party actively hate America—they sat on their hands for moments that should’ve been unifying for any sane American.
Instead, the Democrats chose to play politics and spoil the moment.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi started off the proceedings by first improperly introducing Trump to the chamber.
And at the end of the speech, Pelosi made headlines when she ripped a copy of Trump’s speech in half right in front of the camera.
The Democrat Media Complex celebrated her childish moment.
When asked about the incident, Pelosi responded, “[I]t was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives…I tore it up. I was trying to find one page with truth on it. I couldn’t.”
Her statement is preposterous.
The stock market, unemployment rate, labor force participation, and other metrics are verifiable.
The truth is that Democrats have no response to those numbers or any of Trump’s other accomplishments.
However, the media were silent on an embarrassing piece of video that surfaced.
Pelosi was seen well before her “spontaneous” ripping moment fraying the pages of the speech.
Video confirms Nancy Pelosi ripping up the #SOTU speech was PREMEDITATED:

Pelosi planned ahead of time to rip the pages of Trump’s speech.
She knew that average Americans watching the State of the Union would respond to Trump’s message of American optimism, which is in stark contrast to the Democrat message that the country is nothing more than a cesspool of racism, sexism, and despair.
The facts on the ground say the opposite.
That’s why the Democrats have been reduced to focus on niche issues like transgender soldiers in the military or plastic straws.
They have nothing unifying to run on, so their playbook is to slander Trump and the Republicans and distract people with outbursts like tearing Trump’s speech.
Pelosi has completely lost control of her party.
The radical wing of the party and the media class bullied her into a sham impeachment that she was never enthusiastic about.
The result was voter frustration and boredom with the entire process, and a spike in Trump’s approval rating.
Unless Pelosi and the Democrats come up with something concrete to combat Trump, they’re going to be in serious trouble when November rolls around.
If the Iowa Caucus was any indication of what’s in store for November, Trump will be getting four more years.
