Last night, Trump delivered his third State of the Union Address to the nation. It might have been his most powerful performance as president—with more than a few surprise moments. The president touted the success of his administration, while condemning the evils of socialism. In turn, bitter and defeated Nancy Pelosi disgraced herself one last time.
Despite the Democrats’ and media’s best efforts, Trump entered this year’s State of the Union a victor. The economy is soaring. He’s landed historic trade deals. We are deescalating conflict overseas. The president defeated the left’s bogus impeachment scheme. And his approval numbers are higher than ever.
At the same time, the Democrats can’t even run a simple state primary.
President Trump’s speech was full of surprises and unforgettable moments. Like the showman he is, he provided Americans with an experience that puts on display our patriotism and compassion.
Trump introduced a warfighter back from his fourth Afghanistan deployment to his shocked wife (which was not included in prepared remarks of the speech delivered in advance to reporters); awarded radio host Rush Limbaugh the Presidential Medal of Freedom on the spot; issued an academic scholarship to a needy family; and introduced a surviving member of the Tuskegee Airmen.

This State of the Union was unlike any other. Trump took the opportunity to show America the stark difference between Republicans and Democrats. While he, the leader of the GOP, was giving out awards to heroes and reuniting families, his opponents on the left want to rob us of our health care. And he made a point of letting us all know that.
“As we work to improve Americans’ health care, there are those who want to take away your health care, take away your doctor, and abolish private insurance entirely,” Trump said. “One hundred thirty-two lawmakers in this room have endorsed legislation to impose a socialist takeover of our healthcare system, wiping out the private health insurance plans of 180 million Americans. To those watching at home tonight, I want you to know: We will never let socialism destroy American health care.” [Source: Fox News]
He also reminded the audience that Democrats (including every 2020 candidate) wants to use our taxes to pay for the health care of illegal immigrants.
After his powerful speech, with mostly Republicans cheering, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi pulled one last stunt. With her scheme to impeachment Trump failing, and her chances at keeping a Democrat majority slim, she stood up and ripped Trump’s speech before the entire country.
It was an insulting and pathetic move, by a woman long past her prime. Pelosi has done nothing but create chaos for our country. She is wildly partisan, incompetent, and childish. Not to mention too old to lead. Her stunt, in what will most certainly be her last time as Speaker, brought swift rebukes from users online.
Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was slammed on social media on Tuesday night after she ripped up President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address on national television…
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld tweeted: “i didn’t realize how f***ing great that speech was until Pelosi ripped it up.”
The White House responded: “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.”
Conservative Seattle radio host Jason Rantz tweeted: “Imagine being 108 years old and still acting like you’re 9.”
The Blaze podcast host Chad Prather wrote: “Classless, addle-brained, alcohol infused, embarrassment to this nation’s government. She wants to do the same thing to the US Constitution.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Come on folks, that’s something a nasty, angry child would do. Pelosi is throwing a temper tantrum. But that’s okay. What she did to Trump’s speech is what she—and all her allies—have done to their entire party.
And like shredded paper, they’ll end up on the trash heap of history.
