Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was slammed on social media on Tuesday night after she ripped up President Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address on national television.


Fox News host Greg Gutfeld tweeted: “i didn’t realize how f***ing great that speech was until Pelosi ripped it up.”

The White House responded: “Speaker Pelosi just ripped up: One of our last surviving Tuskegee Airmen. The survival of a child born at 21 weeks. The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller. A service member’s reunion with his family. That’s her legacy.”

White House social media director Dan Scavino tweeted: “Nancy Pelosi destroyed a historical record tonight at #SOTU. The speech she ripped up was a one-of-a-kind record, signed by POTUS and full of stories of Bravery, Heroism and Patriotism. It belonged to the AMERICAN PEOPLE, not to her. What a disgusting display of raw partisanship!”

Fox News senior political analyst responded: “Pretty clear the extent to which Trump has frustrated Pelosi. She thinks he’s an evil buffoon yet here he is, in better shape politically than at any time since his inauguration.”

Daily Wire Editor at Large Josh Hammer wrote: “Trump talks about record-low unemployment and killing the two most infamous terrorists on the face of the earth. Pelosi physically tears up the speech. The Democratic Party is not in a good place right now.”

Conservative Seattle radio host Jason Rantz tweeted: “Imagine being 108 years old and still acting like you’re 9.”

Congressman Ken Buck tweeted a photo of Pelosi and wrote: “Classless.”

The Blaze podcast host Chad Prather wrote: “Classless, addle-brained, alcohol infused, embarrassment to this nation’s government. She wants to do the same thing to the US Constitution.”

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) responded: “Nancy Pelosi disgraced herself, her title, the US Congress, and our great country with this disgusting response at the end of the President’s State of the Union address tonight. She should be stripped of her gavel by the American public this November.”

New York Post editor Sohrab Ahmari tweeted: “Pelosi’s tearing up the speech is another instance of Democrats playing mainly to a Twitter/blue-check bubble. Teen Vogue editors (or whatever) might go, ‘Yasss, Queen.’ To people watching in, say, Michigan, it looks quite different.”

NBC News analyst Howard Fineman tweeted: “That said, it was an unforced PR error by  @SpeakerPelosi
to tear up the speech in front of the cameras on the rostrum. Whom did that help?@realDonaldTrump.”

Conservative political commentator Mark Levin tweeted: “Pelosi has disgraced herself, her office, and the House yet again. Her antics throughout the speech, and her drama thereafter, further expose her as a classless political hack.”

Former Ambassador Nikki Haley tweeted: “Disappointed to see @SpeakerPelosi rip up the speech that mentioned lives we’ve lost and heroes we celebrated at the SOTU. No matter how you feel or what you disagree with, remember others are watching. This was unbecoming of someone at her level in office.”

Former Governor Mike Huckabee tweeted: “Nancy Pelosi’s mental breakdown in ripping speech reminded of Mike Tyson biting Evander Holyfield’s ear off. Historically low mark for any American politician. She disgraced herself, the House, & her party. And she probably hates baseball, apple pie, and country music!”
