Default Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump

Nancy Pelosi's churlish attitude at the State of the Union address simply should not go unnoticed.

First, her announcement of the president--instead of the usual, "It is my honor to present the President of the United States," she substituted, simply, "The president of the United States"--and finally, her tearing up of a copy of his speech, after it had been delivered.

Of course, President Trump should not get off uncriticized, either. His refusal to accept Speaker Pelosi's hand, at the very beginning--assuming that he actually saw it--was ungracious also.

But that is greatly outweighed by the ungraciousness on her part, in my opinion.

Certainly, there is a history here, going back to last October. And it can be argued that President Trump threw the first punch then, when he accused Nancy Pelosi of being a "third-rate politician."

But it would be good, I think, to respect the office of the presidency--even if one has a severe distaste for the current occupant of the Oval Office.

Trump gives the countryís highest civilian honor to a racist scumbag and the right is clutching their pearls about Pelosi ripping up some paper. How can we possibly survive such a lack of decorum!

For her behavior, not her politics, Pelosi needs to be voted out of office.

The wife and I just agreed to send John Dennis a contribution.

If you believe that a politicianís behavior alone should be grounds for voting someone out of office, then surely Trump wonít be getting your vote in November, right?

If you believe a childish tantrums by the Speaker of the House at the Constitutionally required SOTUS ought to go unremarked, you are a child of the blind Resistance hatred. Burn the village to save it.

And, from my perspective, I do not see any of what you are accusing the President. Despite your insistence to the contrary, you have been unable to show any proof to back up your wild claims. I'm betting however, you will blindly continue to pass such falsehoods as fact.

Again, are you just going to pretend that Trump didnít spend 5 years accusing Obama of lying about his birthplace? Itís very well documented, so itís not really possible to deny that it happened. Trump can make up incredibly hateful lies about Obama, but you are all bent out of shape because Pelosi tore up some paper. What a crock.

I NEVER accused Obama of lying about his birthplace. Not EVER.

All you do is parrot the party line. So much so you cannot hear anything else.
Pay attention to the testimony given. What kind of attorney are you?
