Unhinged: Pelosi Claims Ripping Up Speech Honoring American Heroes Was “Dignified”

Feb 06, 2020 | Press Team •

SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI: It’s appalling the things that he says and then you say to me, tearing up his falsehoods, “isn’t that the wrong message?” No, it isn’t. It’s just, I have tried to be gracious with him. I’m always dignified. I thought that was a very dignified act compared to my exuberance as some have said. But we will not allow any president to use that Capitol, that Chamber of the House of Representatives, of the People’s House, as a backdrop for him. Now, all presidents have guests, constant guests. That was not a State of the Union, that was his state of mind. We want a State of the Union —where are we, where are we going, and the rest. Not, “let me just show you how many guests I can draw.”
