Seconds After Trump Finished, Pelosi Grabbed His Speech and Tore It into Pieces On-Air

The moment after President Donald Trump finished his State of the Union speech on Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was seen ripping up a printed copy of his remarks.

It was easily the most dramatic moment of a night that had seen things remain relatively civil to that point.

And the White House responded with fire:

The moment set social media ablaze.

Later, Pelosi was asked by a reporter what she thought about Trump’s speech.

“I tore it up,” she said.

Pelosi said she ripped up the speech “because it was a courteous thing to do considering the alternative. It was such a dirty speech,” according to ABC News.

But many on Twitter thought Pelosi’s stunt lacked class:

“Tonight, Nancy Pelosi acted like a petulant child,” Students for Trump founder Ryan Fournier tweeted.

“Can’t wait for her to lose her speakership!” he added.

“Who agrees?”
