Nancy Pelosi once again made headlines this week.
Pelosi made a bad choice with a fight she picked with President Trump.
And Nancy Pelosi dug her own grave with this mistake. Here’s Pelosi’s threat to Trump.
Nancy Pelosi has been the center of the news for years. And none of it has been good.
The Speaker of the House is repeatedly featured in news stories for her baseless attacks on President Trump.
These attacks even led to a witch hunt of an impeachment investigation where the President was impeached in the House.
But the Republican-held Senate saw through her lies and acquitted Trump of all charges.
And Pelosi didn’t handle defeat gracefully.
During the State of the Union address, Pelosi is seen very dramatically tearing the President’s speech apart.
The video immediately went viral.
More recently, Donald Trump revealed that the House Speaker could be heard mumbling behind him.
During Monday’s rally in New Hampshire, Trump told the crowd that Pelosi had been mumbling throughout his speech, distracting him.
“On Tuesday, I delivered my address on the State of the Union and I had somebody behind me who was mumbling terribly, mumbling,” Trump said. “There was mumbling. Very distracting. Very distracting.”
The crowd replied by chanting “Lock her up,” a common chant at Trump rallies. However, in this case, it was about Pelosi rather than the chant’s usual target, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
“I’m speaking and a woman is mumbling terribly behind me, angry,” Trump continued. “There was a little anger back there. We’re the ones who should be angry, not them. We’re the ones.”
An MSNBC reporter later chimed in with what Pelosi was heard saying.
“If Nancy Pelosi was mumbling behind Donald Trump, do you know what she was mumbling? ‘I’m about to own you. I’m about to own this State of the Union, and I’m about to rip your speech up!’ If she was mumbling, that’s what she was mumbling,” Reid said. “Donald Trump was owned by that woman. She stole that speech out from under him.”
Correspondent Reid and their guest later tried to backtrack and defend Pelosi, but the damage was done.
Pelosi has been outed as a child who has no place in office. She did not get her own way and she very publicly threw a temper tantrum on national TV.
Pelosi further dug her own grave with what she could be heard saying after the address.
When asked why she tore up the speech, Pelosi said immediately after the State of the Union, “because it was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives” and called the speech “a manifesto of mistruths.” The next day in a closed-door caucus meeting she elaborated on her motivation.
“I tried to find one page I could spare that didn’t have a lie on it,” she said. “About a quarter through it, I thought, ‘You know, he’s selling a bill of goods like a snake oil salesman. We cannot let this stand.’ So, somewhere along the way, realizing what was coming, I started to stack my papers in a way that were tearable.”
It is only a matter of time before the tides are turned against Pelosi and she is impeached.
