Pence Blasts Pelosi Over Ripgate: ‘A New Low’
By Cristina Cabrera February 5, 2020 9:12 a.m.

On Wednesday morning, Vice President Mike Pence slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for tearing up her copy of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech the night before.

Pence described the gesture as “a new low” during an interview on “Fox and Friends.” [….]

But on September 15, 2009 Mike Pence (r) was cool with Joe Wilson (r).

Pearl clutching.

Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) couldn’t resist:

Rep. Vicky Hartzler @RepHartzler
There were names of people who died for their country in that speech, names of families who lost a loved one, people struggling with cancer, stories of a young man’s aspirations, a military family reunited.

It’s saddening to see that behavior. But America still marches ahead.

But on September 15, 2009 Kevin McCarthy (r) was cool with Joe Wilson (r).

Marching isn’t a particularly great metaphor. Unless it’s a warning.

There was much hilarity in the responses:

Where was this concern when Trump attacked a Gold Star Family? Where was this concern when Trump said soldiers hospitalized with concussions after the Iranian attack on our airbase just had headaches?

From the time Trump entered the chamber as a guest and refused to shake his host’s hand, the speech became an embarrassing political rally/reality show/award show circus. Pelosi simply added her act, and in so doing, make him into a sideshow.

Please save us all the sob story, you don’t care about the troops until you need votes…

Considering he’s denigrated gold star families, TBI sufferers and even men who spent years in a POW camp for this country I think you should sit this one out. Your selective outrage towards the treatment of military members is pathetic and plainly self-serving.

BABYJAILS are OK, though.

Bunch of bs in there, too. But you know that, vicky. As does #kievinmccarthy #GOPBetrayedAmerica

Also numerous lies, half truths and misinformation. God bless the speaker of the house.

Now do all the lies.

a document of lies isn’t made sacred by including a few names

Lol the GOP has ripped up the constitution so you all have no room to talk

No, Republicans March ahead on the backs and Souls of the American People. Disgraceful!

She should have thrown it in his face!

There are babies in cages , babies & children who have died in that speech. Children & Seniors who can’t get their medicine due to him in that speech. There are Multiple lies in that speech. Awarding a racist is in that speech. Stop it.


Trump used all as props. Grifter til the end.

The speech was riddled w lies and disinformation. It belongs in the garbage can.
Lie, deny, deflect, attack. The trump playbook!

Keep Clutching your pearls; #NancyIsAllOfUs


Plus lots of lies, exaggerations and false achievements.

Perhaps she should have had it bound and placed in a gold leaf cover? #TrumpCult

There were also a bunch of lies in that speech. But, you know as well as I, trump can’t open his mouth without lying. In fact, trump will lie when the truth would suit him better. And, giving Rush the Presidential Medal of Freedom is dishonored *all* the previous recipients.

Spare me your false outrage. How many gold star families has Trump insulted?

Your feigned outrage is ridiculous. You’re in a cult. The first step is admitting you have a problem.

Kids in cages is still acceptable though.

How disingenuous of you. While Trump may have “used” some truly honorable Americans in his speech he did disservice to them and the rest of us with the lies he told, as always. The lies are what we reject, not the people. Use your head.

If I write Vicky Hartzler on a piece of paper and tear it up, will you feel it? Will it bother you? Will it change anything? Also, your pearls are getting sweaty, stop clutching them.


And there’s more…
