Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi was seen physically tearing up a written-word copy of President Trump’s state of the union address on Tuesday night as the President’s speech concluded.

It’s unclear what Speaker Pelosi thought she was accomplishing through the infantile stunt. The general public is largely aware that she opposes Trump politically and just tried to ram through an impeachment trial. Ripping up the State of the Union raises questions as to why she even attended the event in the first place.
Pelosi refused to introduce President Trump in the manner the Speaker of the House traditionally does for State of the Union address.
The President is usually addressed with the following introduction.
“Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States.”
Pelosi instead gave the following dumbed-down, brisk, and cold introduction.
“Members of Congress, the president of the United States.”
Pelosi’s antics weren’t totally ignored, with the President justifiably denying her a handshake as she tried to interrupt the annual address with puerile digs.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich called for Nancy Pelosi to be censured for the politically unprecedented cheap shot. The State of the Union address traditionally has been largely separate from ongoing partisan political disputes, something that appears to have been changed as Democrats adjust to an existence of perpetual derangement during the Trump presidency.
If Pelosi is so upset to be in the presence of the President for the State of the Union address, she should simply refrain from entering the House chamber while the President speaks. There’s no good reason why the American people should be denied a crucial political tradition just because a sourpuss is making an attempt to score political points with childish stunts.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
