“Unburdens herself” is just a tacit PC way of saying failed and gives up.

Four more years of President Trump, Nancy. MAGA!

“Wow. Nancy ripped my speech. She truly hates America,”

Seriously deluded thinking he, someone who's only used the US for personal gain, someone who's scoffed at those who've served, can be equated with and represents the country.

Cult of personality redux. How have those worked out in the past, and why would anyone want an aging, corrupt, self-serving, unethical person like Trump to represent the country.

They must want big brother watching over them, and more importantly big brother watching over those not from their demographic.

“We saw the president of the United States shred the truth right in front of us," she said.

What a load of BS. Pelosi will go down as the first and last Speaker of the House who tore up the president's State of the Union speech. That was a trult childish and despicable act. A new low for the woman who is still pissed about that house falling on her sister.

@nonpartyI thought Nancy is going to eat that papers...

As some in the Federation say, 'only people with two neurons rubbing together' might think that.

What a puff piece. Dems love their victimhood, it’s a badge of honor.

dont impeach someone in a partisan manner for nonsense, don’t get embarrassed....again.

-4 ( +7 / -11 )

This kind of behavior usually indicates desperation, a dead end. perhaps she did it to make the loon team happy but for us observing, their party is in a death spiral.

Time to move on and fight the campaign against Sir Impeached A Lot. At least the people now know that the senate does not represent them. Time to toss them all out, except in those flyover states where the IQ is too low to be able to understand things like "reality" and "truth".

I do have to ask though, what do we impeach him for next?

After all, we still have like 82 investigations to do to catch up to the Pubs and their Hillary calamity.

I say impeach him for being a moron next. Even the senate couldn't defend him against that.

@ PTownsendToday... If she eats that papers .. MSNBC, CNN and all fake media team would glorify it. They will encourage all the liberals and the Trump haters to imitate it in their homes with all family members. May be Nancy would be given the Nobel price. There will be world wide competition of eating the speeches of Trump and the newspapers. The fastest eater recognize as Guinness record holder. Who knows later this will be added as an item in the Olympic. Such Glory our little girl NANCY. Greta would be jealous of you. My sweet girl do not cry ..

If only she admits she hates him. So much personal feelings. So much hatred.

That talking point was used already, got a different one?

someone who's scoffed at those who've served, can be equated with and represents the country. 

His opponents have done the same thing to his supporters and a great example of it was yesterday.

Cult of personality redux. How have those worked out in the past, and why would anyone want an aging, corrupt, self-serving, unethical person like Trump to represent the country. 

Half the country.

They must want big brother watching over them, and more importantly big brother watching over those not from their demographic.

No, that’s why the Dems won’t win, not this cycle.

“She said she viewed Trump's remarks as “a pack of lies” on everything from health care to Medicare and Medicaid.”

”everything from...to” would usually indicate a range. Medicare and Medicaid are both involving healthcare, are they not?

Republicans ALL know that what Trump did was an impeachable offense and was caught. In addition, they all know what they would have done if Barack Obama had done the same. What Pelosi and the Democrats did was 100% according to what the founders laid out in the Constitution. Their efforts were obstructed by the President all along the way in unprecedented fashion. Again, the Republicans know full well what they would have done if Barack Obama has done the same.

In addition, Pelosi and the House of Representatives have now delivered over 400 pieces of legislation to the Senate where the self described "Grim Reaper" Senator McConnel has chosen to table them and not allow consideration and votes. How does this help the American citizens?

What has happened to the Republican party?

Well done Mrs Speaker...

Tearing up his lie and hate filled speech in the background, while he was there smiling in front was the ultimate diss for Donnie. I'm sure he went back to the White House and raged while scarfing down a couple Big Macs...

By giving the Medal of Freedom to someone who has said "Slavery wasn't so bad", and a myriad of other hate filled racist comments, Donnie sealed his doom. He might as well have given it to David Duke.

I guess all the Repubs that were clapping hid their white sheets under their chairs,,,

then they would have supported impeachment it would’ve removed him, but they didn’t and I didn’t think so.

In addition, they all know what they would have done if Barack Obama had done the same.

There were a few things that the Republicans could have impeached Obama on and they didn’t, because they had already experienced it and knew what would happen. They knew it would have been the end of them, so they left it, wise choice.

What Pelosi and the Democrats did was 100% according to what the founders laid out in the Constitution.

As did the Senate.

In addition, Pelosi and the House of Representatives have now delivered over 400 pieces of legislation to the Senate where the self described "Grim Reaper" Senator McConnel has chosen to table them and not allow consideration and votes. How does this help the American citizens?

Hey, remember this? Republicans and conservatives do

What the heck happened to the Democrats??

I've been a Republican all my life. Never again. I was never a fan of Nancy Pelosi either. But I am moved by the extent to which she carried out her job, The Republicans who aquitted Trump put party before country. At some point the American people need to support a person they see as fit as an individual, to be President, regardless of party affiliation.

@bas4fThere were a few things that the Republicans could have impeached Obama on and they didn’t

I'd call you on this, ask for a cite, even from the usual 8chan/RT/Qanon-type links usually used, but having read so many posts when truth was slimed with alt facts and outright distortions won't waste my time. Plus I know the mods will protect you from being questioned.

I feel the same way about you guys.

Plus I know the mods will protect you from being questioned.

What? Anyhoo, I think at this point since liberals lost once again to focus on real issues, don’t know if they have the mental fortitude to do it, but they should try and do something for the American people and show they have the capacity to lead and not just continuously whine all the time, it’s over, move on.

The Republicans who aquitted Trump put party before country.

The democrats decide to put party before country by trying to undo an election and use an impeachment clause based on lies to try and convict and remove a duly elected President.

At some point the American people need to support a person they see as fit as an individual, to be President, regardless of party affiliation.

That’s why he’s riding high and thanks to Nancy, she just put another notch on his belt.

Nah, they don´t give up. Wait for the next shampeachment.

Speaker Pelosi needs to be a bit more honest with people about her actions. Her now famous "speech ripping" act was just that, an act. She claims it was spontaneous, but it was not. It was pre planned and prepared, a bit of theatre to attempt to salvage some pride from what has been a terrible week for the Democrats.

In fact, she was caught on camera "pre-ripping" the speech copy during the SOTU address, making tears in the paper so that, at the end, she wouldn't have trouble making her melodramatic gesture in front of the cameras. This was no display of righteous indignation. It was just more nonsense. And it was disappointing, I had always had more respect for the Speaker. She's no longer on top of her game, or her caucus, and needs to resort to childish gestures to get attention.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

She tore up a copy of a speech, one of hundreds distributed. He shredded the US Constitution. No comparison.

6 ( +7 / -1 )

For Pelosi and the Democrats, the address was a much more glum event. The party had a political hangover from the debacle Monday night in Iowa, whose kickoff caucuses ended in delays, fury and mockery from Republicans. The House's impeachment of Trump, with its huge political risks for majority Democrats, was about to be dispatched by the Republican-led Senate. They booed and groaned, but more often, just sat as Trump spoke.

It seems that the Queen of the swamp, Nancy "General Jack D. Ripper" Pelosi is really, really, mad this time. For real. Seriously. This time it's not her usual act. No sir, not this time. Ol' Nancy tore up papers, in public, to prove how serious she is this time. No foolin'. Next time she'll bring her "A" game. Or maybe this was her "A" game?

Nah, more like him and his korrupt kremlin kronies took the constitution (and their constitutional "oaths") to wipe their smelly sewage behinds with it.

I keep seeing these over-the-top rants, but what exactly is this supposed to mean? Is it possible to explain in normal language? Who are "the korrupt kremlin kronies" and what what exactly did he and they do?

Putin, the Kremlin played and manipulated 'Murican "Conservative Christian" fundamentalist fanatics for the chumps they were. Just took a little pandering to what the bigoted ilk want to hear and then encouraging them along those lines. You're own comments over the past few years since Trump took office (still considered by many through dubious means...) proved that they work.

I said a long time ago that Trumpeteers let hostile government interests know how to play you for puppets. And you've proven to them what works so now they can play you like fiddles to dance to their tune like idiot hyper partisan monkeys. This has never been in the best interest of the US.

Easily manipulated by the blind faith political rhetoric (liberals, traitors, commies, dems....) you want to believe in, while shutting out the screaming truth in your minds. I like how a former Trump voter stated, "Make America THINK HARDER"... a lot of people are dropping DUMP especially those who actually did vote for him before paying attention to the reality of what they did.

A lot of people have given up on you because you adhere to cult of personality (like certain dictators over the decades) rule your minds so you can ignore the real damage being done. It is a choice that you've made for yourself. And hypocrisy as with everything else poorly thought out, has very real consequences that come for those that make poor decisions sooner or later.

The GOP has been left with nothing but those who put party power before country to the point they don't care if other countries with hostile intent to the US manipulate and destroy our government as long as they feel they can benefit from it all by themselves. Those conservatives that left because of the current state GOP realized they could not put the country before the party, and that the original basic foundations of the Republican party was destroyed.

Where is that fiscal conservatism? What happened to small but EFFICIENT government? Remember when Trump first hit office, the GOP had control of ALL branches of government, and STILL couldn't do right by the average US citizen. For sale to the highest, wealthiest, most elite globalists in the world that know the Greedy Old Patriarchs in the US would kill their own family to satiate their desire for power and money above all else.

remove a duly elected President.

Using this cliche over and over just shows what a shallow argument you have.

Waste of time discoursing with you.

No different than all you guys trying to insinuate he wasn’t duly elected when you know he was.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Yes the truth is ACQUITTAL. As that is the result of the trial that was held.
