Nancy Pelosi ‘pre-ripped’ pages of Trump’s SOTU speech, video shows, by Tamar Lapin.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently made tiny tears into her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address — so that her speech-ripping moment could go off without a hitch.

Previously quoted from Z-Man:

Given the state of left-wing politics, it is smart to assume [that Pelosi’s ripping up of the speech] was a well-rehearsed stunt cooked up by an army of pollsters, drama coaches and consultants.

Yep, pre-planned. Sigh. Misleading, disrespectful, and dishonest.

UPDATE: Jim Treacher:

They’ve tried everything, and everything didn’t work. So now they’ve been reduced to these attention-grabbing stunts and petulant shows of defiance. And even this crap is self-defeating.

They’ve been trying to convince us for years that Trump is some kind of dictator. He’s Orange Hitler, they say. He’s the most dangerous president in American history, we’re told. But if he were a tyrant, Pelosi would be in chains right now for humiliating him in front of the whole world. Or at least trying to. If he were a tyrant, AOC wouldn’t be allowed to skip his SOTU address. Attendance would be compulsory, and her failure to grit her teeth and applaud him would be punished severely.

Michael Tracey:

Pelosi just gave Trump an enormous political gift with this epically bungled impeachment failure, but her dumbass millennial staffers evidently advise her to do cheap performative stunts for Viral Moments™ — so it’s all good!

Chris:

She just demonstrated what Dems really mean by “when they go low, we go high.”

Jo Michigan:

VP Pence just confirmed on Fox & Friends that Nancy Pelosi was indeed muttering to herself during the speech.

Paul Surovell:

It’s the 2020 version of “deplorables” that will motivate every Trump supporter.

And the campaign has barely begun. There will be more of these moments, because character is destiny.

So much anger and hate.

So many bad puns:
