House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s childish, petty ripping up of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech only gets better.
Now, news reports say video of the supposedly spontaneous event after Trump’s speech shows she tore small rips in the paper beforehand so her show would go off without a problem. It was a planned show, it turns out, aimed at detracting from what was one of Trump’s best speeches.
If the Left, in a contemplative moment some time in the future, ever wonders why so many Americans prefer Donald Trump with all his warts and flaws to any Democratic candidate, it should review Democrats’ conduct over the past three years, culminating with Pelosi’s puerile temper tantrum on national television.
It is not often you see the person who is third in line for succession to the presidency act so publicly like a spoiled brat. She does not like Trump. America gets that, but she is the speaker of the House, occupying the same position as political giants such as Henry Clay, Sam Rayburn and Tip O’Neill. Is it impossible to imagine any one of them acting as Pelosi acted after Trump’s speech.
The speaker needs to get a grasp on reality. She and her cohorts lost their relentless attempt to unseat the president by hook or by crook and undo the 2016 election. They failed. It is time for Pelosi & Co. to get over it and time for her to acquire the dignity required for her job.
The American people expect more and certainly deserve better than they got from her antics.
