Pence Torches Pelosi for Tearing up Trump’s State of the Union Address

Vice President Mike Pence is tearing into House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for her actions at the end of Tuesday night’s State of the Union address.

Pelosi sparked a lot of conversation after she held President Donald Trump’s speech up at the end of his remarks and proceeded to tear it up on Tuesday evening, as IJR reported.

In case you missed it:

Pence — who was next to Pelosi at the address — told Fox News on Wednesday that he did not see the House speaker rip up the president’s address during the moment but called it “a new low” for her.

“I was not sure she was ripping up the speech or ripping up the Constitution,” Pence added.

“The contrast here was a president who spent an hour and a half making a speech about America and Nancy Pelosi, in the final moments, tried to make it about her and I think the American people see through it and see through the pettiness and see through the politics.”

The vice president continued to say he “felt like” Pelosi knew ahead of time she would be tearing up the speech.

The White House’s official Twitter account wrote after the moment of Pelosi, “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.”

Watch Pence’s interview below:

Pelosi’s actions had people split on their reactions with some Democratic lawmakers applauding the House speaker’s move, including Rep. Rashida Tlaib who tweeted, “I would have shredded it.”

The following day of the State of the Union address, the hashtag “Nancy the ripper” trended on Twitter.

The top Democratic House leader, however, didn’t back down from her clear disapproval of Trump and his address.

She reportedly told Democratic lawmakers in a closed-door meeting on Wednesday, “He shredded the truth, so I shredded his speech. … You are supposed to talk about the state of the union, not the state of your alleged mind,” as The Hill reports.


  1. Just when I thought Nasty Nancy could stoop no lower – she surpassed herself in petulant stupidity.
    This kind of behavior is expected from the dud-squad, but Pelosi’s hate for the President has dragged her to a new low!

  2. Nancy Pelosi was absolutely childish in tearing up the SOTU speech. thought she had behaved badly in 2019 but she even topped that in 2020. I do believe Pe;osi has dementia. Dementia: A group of conditions Characterized by impairment of at least two brain functions, such as memory loss and judgement. A group of thinking and social symptoms that interferes with daily functions. I believe Pelosi has demonstrated this condition. Time for Pelosi to retire to California.

    1. You believe Nancy Pelosi has dementia based on memory loss and judgement based on WHAT exactly? You do understand she is not the one who claimed in the July 4th, 2019 national speech that the Revolutionary soldiers successfully defended the airports—In repeated campaign rallies claims China is paying for the token “wall.” or fired Flynn for lying to the VP but claims Flynn wasn’t lying to the FBI when he told them the same info. Pelosi is not the one who asked to be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for denuclearizng North Korea. Pelosi is not the one who pardons war criminals against the advice of his military advisers. Need I go on?

  3. I have just one thing to say …. they are the Democrat Party….NOT the Democratic Party! ‘Nuff said!

  4. Nancy acted like a petulant child that is not getting their way. How much more do we have to endure before something is done to curtail these immature, corrupt democrats?

  5. Phillis Softa, are you…softa ? You basically say it’s okay. Are you kidding me ? Blatant disrespect. The President did not once touch on the impeachment. He used the words “we” and “us” more than “I”. He talked about our country. This woman is freaking mad ! And i don’t mean angry. Who does this.? Yes, that is her legacy. To act like a petulant child on national TV. It only proves, rude or not, the President calling her “Crazy Nancy” is for good reasons. She proved it. No poise, no composure, no class. Stop trying to downgrade a shameful act. Gee, it’s only the President of the United States’ State of the Union address. Rip it up for the all of nation to see. What’s the big deal. Really ???!!! Read your own words for Gods’ sake.

    1. Tearing up a speech filled with misinformation and lies is not against the U.S. Constitution. I am not on the Kool-aid so, having enough of the lies, I do NOT watch his speeches or interviews. Being the speech was down 20% from last year, I am not alone.
      When are Trumpers going to understand that YOU destroyed ALL standards of decency when you voted for Trump. You can not claim the Access Hollywood video, the Howard Stern interviews, the millions in fines for corrupt business practices, the affairs with a porn star and Playboy model, the videos of partying with Epstein, the Helsinki press conference when he claimed he believed Putin and NOT the U.S. Intel Community, and so many more examples, represent CLASS!. CLASS IS GONE! You may believe it is SANE to close down the U.S. government for 35 days for a vanity wall, BUT is is NOT. You may believe publicly claiming you won’t work with the Speaker of the House on an infrastructure bill unless she stops the congressionally mandated oversight, IS SANE? If you do, THAT makes you as unstable as Trump. .

  6. She is a sore loser, and a worst representative. I hope her constituents vote her into retirement and give her seat to a true American.

    1. Where is the LOGIC in your expectation of the Representative of the 12 district of California to represent YOUR political positions? Her constituents are not brain-dead Trumpers. From their prospective, a true American stands up to corruption and lies. A TRUE American does not condone it. A TRUE American does not turn over their thought process to others. A TRUE American THINKS!
