People are going nuts over Nancy Pelosi literally ripping Trump’s speech to pieces. CNN even had the nerve to call Pelosi’s action “aggressively rude.” Well, when you’re dealing with an aggressively rude, obnoxious, and crass president, the best way to get his attention is to speak his language.
The Democrats have fought hard to bring an out-of-control “president” to task. He is aided and abetted by a Republican senate that cares only for what they want and nothing for the country they pretend to serve. They are now, of course, complaining about Pelosi, but had Trump not acted like the petulant child that he is and decided to shake her hand, this likely would not have happened. Pelosi’s office issued the following statement: “The manifesto of mistruths presented in page after page of the address tonight should be a call to action for everyone who expects truth from the President and policies worthy of his office and the American people.”
No surprise that Trump’s buddies have the amazing ability to ignore his constant barrage of lies and now want to criticize Pelosi. Some of their quotes are unbelievable. Sean Hannity said that Pelosi ripping up the speech was “one of the most classless things ever done in the history of the State of the Union.” Wrong, Hannity. Everything Trump does is classless, including his never-ending stream of lies to the American public.
According to CNN, Speaker Pelosi told Democrats in a closed-door meeting that Trump’s speech was a “disgrace” and that “he shredded the truth, so I shredded his speech.” Let’s be honest: When has Trump told the truth about anything? He certainly couldn’t miss an opportunity to lie with a large audience, and in fact, most assumed he would lie. The audacity of Trump to give the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh of all people was the proverbial icing on the cake for Nancy. She had enough, and you can’t really blame her. This medal has been awarded to people like Rosa Parks, T.S. Eliot, Duke Ellington, and Sandra Day O’Connor — people who brought joy to our lives or who stood up when they weren’t supposed to stand up. To give this high award to someone like Limbaugh is a slap in the face to the remaining recipients. Pelosi likened Trump’s stunt to a “reality show” and “campaign speech,” according to CNN.
Trump loves anything that allows him to fan the flames of his racist, hateful rhetoric and behaviors. He is a true embarrassment. His White House Twitter account had the audacity to tweet out the ridiculous, grammatically incorrect statement that “Speaker Pelosi just ripped up: One of our last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. The survival of a child born at 21 weeks. The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller. A service member’s reunion with his family. That’s her legacy.” As if anyone in that White House gives one hoot about any of the people they named. If they cared so much about the Tuskegee Airmen, why wasn’t Charles McGee given the medal? Certainly, his legacy is more deserving of such an honor than hatemongering talk-show host Rush Limbaugh. This is all a show for Trump, and his ratings are failing. Let’s take him off the air in November.
