When Trump gave the State of the Union address, people acted with outrage that Nancy Pelosi ripped up a copy of his speech on live national television. I said that the entire incident seemed staged, and something was not right about it, that it may have been staged.
This seems to have been confirmed as Pelosi was caught on camera ‘pre-ripping’ the speech well before Trump delivered it, giving the impression she was intending to do this anyways as a publicity stunt.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi apparently made tiny tears in her copy of President Trump’s State of the Union address — so that her speech-ripping moment could go off without a hitch.
As Trump introduced cancer-stricken radio host Rush Limbaugh — who received the Medal of Freedom during the speech — Pelosi could be seen grabbing the pages off the table.
Video shows her making what seemed to be a tearing motion and then placing the pages back on the table.
Photos of the sheets of paper show them face down on the table with small slits on the side, near where Pelosi would eventually rip them into pieces.
Vice President Mike Pence, who was seated next to the California Democrat, told “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday that it felt like she’d planned to rip the speech because “it felt like such an immediate moment.”
Pelosi’s office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. (source)
