House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a show of ripping up the printed speech of President Donald Trump after his State of the Union address Tuesday night.

The tantrum may not have been as spontaneous as it seemed, however, with one camera angle showing Pelosi pre-ripping the speech halfway through Trump’s address.

During a touching tribute to cancer-stricken Rush Limbaugh, Pelosi moved her copy of the speech out of view and gave it a slight tear, seemingly to make her planned theatrics at the end of Trump’s speech go off without a hitch.

Watch the footage below to see the move, one that wasn’t caught on other cameras.

This came before Trump told the story of Ellie Schneider, born prematurely at just 21 weeks; before he told of the tragic murder of Rocky Jones; and before celebrating the life of Kayla Mueller — one of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s victims.

It’s not like Pelosi couldn’t have known this — the very thing she ripped up was Trump’s speech highlighting these Americans.

Pictures taken after the move only confirm the small tears.

The pre-ripped paper can be seen waiting for Pelosi’s big moment in photographs taken from behind the House speaker.

Of course, we all know what happened after Trump’s speech was finished.

As Congress applauded the president, Pelosi stood and made a grand gesture of tearing up Trump’s speech.

Republicans and even some Democrats piled onto the House speaker for the move, seen as a breach of decorum and a generally classless move by one of the leaders of the United States.

Jody Jones, brother of the murdered Rocky Jones, said Pelosi’s stunt cut him deeply — it “felt like she ripped our hearts out.”

This wasn’t a spur of the moment thing for Pelosi. Her pre-ripping of the paper made it clear that this was a calculated move that she planned at least 40 minutes before the end of Trump’s speech.

This show from Pelosi, along with rumblings of a second impeachment attempt from within her party, only serve to underscore Democrats’ disastrous obsession with Trump.

Opponents of former Vice President Joe Biden should have an easy time countering what appears to be the favored Democratic presidential candidate’s debate strategy.

After all, it was emailed to supporters of the candidate only hours ahead of Wednesday’s debate, the fifth such event for 2020 Democratic candidates, and shared on Twitter by The New York Times’ Shane Goldmacher.

The Biden fundraising victory lap, which was supposed to go out after the debate, begins with a disingenuous, “I’m leaving the fifth Democratic debate now.”

“I hope I made you proud out there,” the email says, “and I hope I made it clear to the world why our campaign is so important.”

An important bit almost hidden in the body of the email signals that the struggling candidate could come gunning for Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a contender for the Democratic nomination who threatens to unseat the former vice president’s lead in the polls.

“We need leadership,” the email reads. “We need to be ready on day one to get the country back on track and clean up Donald Trump’s mess. But we need more than plans. We need the grit and resolve to get things done.”

This appeal for “more than plans” appears to be a direct shot at Warren’s campaign and supporters, for whom “Warren has a plan for that” has become something of an unofficial motto.

If Warren didn’t have a plan to attack Biden tonight, she might after this email.

The conflict between the two likely will determine who is the candidate to beat as Democrats choose who will go on to face President Donald Trump.

Now, Warren appears to have at least one major advantage hours ahead of Wednesday’s debate.

She’s not the only one, either.

The other candidates in the crowded fifth debate are Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey; South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg; Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii; Sen. Kamala Harris of California; Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota; Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont; businessman Tom Steyer; and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.

Judging from the email sent in error, other points Biden might bring up during the debate include bipartisan cooperation, affordable health care and environmental issues.

Thankfully, it doesn’t appear he’ll be showcasing his ignorance with firearms again.

For a candidate who has fought to shake the image of the out-of-touch and inept “Sleepy Joe” that Trump and others have placed on him, this email blunder sure doesn’t help.

On July 25, President Donald Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky spoke on the phone.

Their exchange would eventually spark the impeachment inquiry that is currently engulfing the nation.

According to Trump, however, there’s a “more important” call with the European leader that took places months earlier.

The president announced Monday he’ll be releasing the transcript of that call, later promising it would become public this week.

“In order to continue being the most Transparent President in history,” Trump tweeted Monday, “I will be releasing sometime this week the Transcript of the first, and therefore most important, phone call I had with the President of Ukraine.”

In a follow-up post 12 hours later, Trump promised to release the transcript “before week’s end.”

“I will be releasing the transcript of the first, and therefore more important, phone call with the Ukrainian President before week’s end!” Trump wrote.

What we know about the first call is limited, but it could be the missing piece needed to finally end the impeachment farce.

Trump called Zelensky for the first time in April to congratulate the comedian-turned-politician on his victory in the country’s presidential election, according to the New York Post.

During the call, Trump expressed his desire to work with the Ukrainian president and even extended him an invitation to visit the White House.

Army Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman was on the original call, and previously confirmed the exchange was “positive.”

The fact that Trump has stressed the importance of the first call multiple times indicates the transcript might contain something that could give context to the conversation at the center of House Democrats’ impeachment push.

The exchange from the controversial July call is so innocuous that “read the transcript” has become a rallying cry for those defending Trump.

Now, a new transcript threatens to galvanize the seemingly growing resistance against Democrats.

A damning undercut to an already struggling partisan impeachment process would be devastating for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff and other lawmakers leading the anti-Trump push.

Schiff is already under mounting pressure from Republicans who want to call their own witnesses to bring a semblance of fairness to the process.

Democrats might have to wait a few more days before the new transcript drops.

While it may not provide any new information, the president’s focus on the call could mean it’s a ticking time bomb for the anti-Trump impeachment inquiry.

A bombshell report paints a clearer picture of Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s ancestry, and it now looks like the tables have turned on her claims of having Native American relatives.

Breitbart reports that Warren’s great-great-great-grandfather, Jonathan Crawford, was part of Major William Lauderdale’s Tennessee Volunteer Militia that fought in the Second Seminole War.

Between November 1837 and May 1838, Crawford participated in multiple battles against Native Americans.

Much of what we know about Crawford comes from records submitted by his widow Neona Crawford during the 1850s. She submitted paperwork and proof of her late husband’s military service to secure a pension.

The Seminole Tribe of Florida’s own account of the war paints an ugly picture: “arguably the most tragic years in the history of US-Indian relations east of the Mississippi River.”

“Known to history as the Second Seminole War,” an article on the tribe’s site states, “the US government committed almost $40,000,000 to the forced removal of slightly more than 3,000 Maskókî men, women, and children from Florida to Oklahoma. This was the only Indian war in US history in which not only the US army but also the US navy and marine corps participated.”

And it gets worse for Warren.

A year before Crawford was fighting against the Seminoles, he was helping the Tennessee Militia round up Native Americans to send on the infamous Trail of Tears.

According to the Museum of the Cherokee Indian, this dark period in Native American history was marked by men, women and children being “forced to walk more than a thousand miles, and removed to Indian Territory, now Oklahoma.”

“More than 4,000 died and many are buried in unmarked graves along ‘The Trail Where They Cried.’”

Although Warren claims to have Indian ancestry, this documented link is decidedly more realistic, and it could not come at a worse time for her.

Warren is preparing to clash with her fellow Democrats at Thursday night’s debate. While her current opponents have so far refrained from attacking her flimsy ancestry claims, this new information could be almost too easy to exploit.

The Massachusetts senator’s original claim of having Native American relatives ended up turning her into a laughingstock after a DNA test revealed she only had a minuscule amount of Indian blood.

She was even found to have handwritten her race as “American Indian” on her own State Bar of Texas card.

Warren may have been unconcerned about the parts of her ancestry that she couldn’t use to apply for a position, but the truth about her heritage is now in the public eye.

Campaigning for the nomination of a Democratic Party now obsessed with identity politics, Warren should know that this information could throw a wet blanket over her hopes of ever reaching the White House.

If any of her opponents drop this bombshell of a revelation in tonight’s debate, Warren could have a hard time recovering.
