‘I Tore It Up!’: Pelosi Rips Up Trump Speech At Conclusion Of State Of The Union




Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday ripped up her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address at the conclusion of his speech.

As Trump finished speaking and most lawmakers stood to applaud, Pelosi stood, grabbed a handful of pages from Trump’s speech and tore it in half.

She tossed the shredded pages in a stack on the dais as Trump made his way to greet members of Congress.



Asked afterward why she tore the speech up, Pelosi told reporters it was “the courteous thing to do given the alternative.”

She could also be heard telling reporters, “I tore it up!”




The moment came after Trump appeared to snub Pelosi’s offer of a handshake at the beginning of the speech.
