Gingrich calls on Congress to do the right thing and censure Pelosi for ripping up Trump’s SOTU address

Our politics have devolved into a tit-for-tat insult-fest of irreconcilable differences

By Tank Murdoch

(TNS) Following President Donald Trump’s highly charged, emotional State of the Union Address Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California displayed the ultimate sign of disrespect not only to the president but to the office of the President and to the American people.



On live television, she tore up the copy of the address that the president gave her at the outset.

And while that gesture no doubt was a play to her party’s perpetually angry base, it isn’t something she should get away with, according to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.)

“As Speaker of the House for four State of the Unions by a President of the other party I am disgusted and insulted by the viciously partisan action of Nancy Pelosi tearing up the speech,” Gingrich tweeted late Tuesday. “She isn’t clever or cute her childishness insults our American traditions - should be censured.”

Meanwhile, the White House tweeted out a short summary of the contents of the speech that Pelosi “ripped up.”

Following the act and as she filed out of the chamber, a Fox News correspondent asked her why she did it, to which she responded, “Because it was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives. I tore it up. I was trying to find one page with truth on it. I couldn’t.”

She didn’t mention what the “alternatives” were.

Before his address, the president appeared to snub Pelosi’s handshake, but it was after she omitted the customary phrase as Trump entered the chamber, “I have the high privilege and distinct honor of” introducing the president of the United States and simply introduced him as “the president of the United States.” And, of course, all of that was preceded by a four-month impeachment odyssey in which Democrats, led by Pelosi, attempted to remove Trump from office for the ‘high crime and misdemeanor’ of conducting foreign policy.

Gingrich, no doubt, understands that the Democrat-controlled House isn’t going to ‘discipline’ their leader — for this or anything else — so really, all he’s doing is getting his sentiments on record.

But if what transpired Tuesday night between Democrats, this president and his Republican Party doesn’t prove how irreconcilable our differences really are as a country with a two-party system, nothing will.

All the satanic baby-eating satanists wore white again. That’s popular with heathen demon worshippers that practice voodoo.

Looks like the faghag, Piglosi is a satanic witch and traitor. I hope some bum craps on her face, and gives her cornoa-aidsbola.

Censure is to good for her. If we get everyone we know out to vote as well as help at your local party HQ we can take back the house and thankfully that will be her last SOTU as anything but possibly a member of the house.
Much as I hate to say it the Republicans deserved what they got. There was so much they could have done in President Trump’s first two years. However it looks like they have seen the light and will do a much better job of following President Trump’s lead.
