House Speaker Nancy Pelosi: "He shredded the truth in his speech, he's shredding the Constitution in his conduct, I shredded his state of his mind address."
After U.S. President Donald Trump used his state of the union address to extol the "Great American Comeback" and make the case for his re-election, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tore up her copy of the speech. After President Trump gave his State of the Union speech on Feb. 4, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) ripped the written script into pieces. Nancy Pelosi continues to receive backlash over her political stunt at President Trump's State of the Union address. One America's Jennifer Franco spoke with Rep. Mike Johnson, who said the House speaker committed a felony when she tore up the president's speech on Tuesday. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended her decision to rip up President Donald Trump's State of the Union address earlier this month during an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour.
