House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday night tore up a copy of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech, telling reporters later “it was the courteous thing to do, considering the alternative. It was such a dirty speech.”
The California Democrat, whose party has voted to impeach Trump, earlier could be seen extending her hand to the president before he gave his annual address. But he didn’t see it — or ignored it. The speech came a day ahead of his expected acquittal in his impeachment trial.
