At the 2020 State of the Union speech on Tuesday night, Nancy Pelosi ripped up Trump’s speech, visible from the podium, in an act of disrespect that clearly galled the Republicans.
Whenever I hear Republicans complain about partisanship, it really is an example of the pot calling the kettle black. The Republicans have been engaging in extreme partisanship since the beginning of the Obama administration, and Mitch McConnell’s public declaration in 2010 that his only objective was to make Obama a one-term President.
As Al Franken was recently quoted on Twitter:
“Listening to Mitch McConnell talk about the decline of bipartisanship is like listening to Jeffrey Dahmer complain about the decline of dinner party etiquette.“Al Franken (@alfranken) December 19, 2019
Being courteous to Trump or to the Republicans — which Obama tried again and again back in 2008 — is obviously not going to work. Let Pelosi show her disdain with Trump’s MAGA rally speech. It was — and this should come as no surprise to anyone — full of distortions and lies.
