Twitter Users Hail ‘Queen’ Pelosi For Ripping Up Trump’s ‘Garbage’ Speech

Published: (Updated: ) in Australian News by .

It was the rip heard ’round the world. 

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) took the thunder out of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech on Tuesday night by ripping it up as he finished speaking. 

“It was the courteous thing to do, considering the alternatives,” Pelosi said in response to a reporter as she left the event.

The ending capped off an evening that began with an icy moment between the two: Trump appeared to snub Pelosi’s offer of a handshake, and she dispensed with part of the traditional introduction to the president.  

The speech’s dramatic conclusion quickly trended on Twitter ― with many Pelosi supporters hailing her act of defiance:

His words have never been worth the paper they’re printed on, so this makes sense. https://t.co/fkizb1YVEW

Pelosi tore up a printout of a speech.

The Republicans shredded the Constitution.

Only the latter threatens to undermine America.

Dear @GOP

Don’t worry, we already know you are going to wag fingers at us about civility after the Pelosi shred.

But daily he shreds truth, norms, decency, honor, and dignity.

And as a serial rapist, he shreds lives.

So. Spare. Us. You #hypocrites#Pelosi#shredded
