Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and President Donald Trump have long had an awkward relationship but their latest subs might just be the craziest one yet.
On Tuesday night, after Trump finished his State of the Union Address, Pelosi was seen ripping up a copy of the President’s speech. In clips which have gone viral it seemed like the President had appeared to dodge an attempted handshake from the House Speaker.
According to TIME, Pelosi told reporters the reason why she tore up the transcript was “Because it was the courteous thing to do,” adding that it was “the courteous thing to do considering the alternative.”
Although she didn’t state what she meant by an “alternative.” They also reported that she later called Trump’s speech a “manifesto of mistruths.”
The White House responded quickly, accusing Pelosi of disrespecting the Americans that Trump had praised during his State of the Union address.
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.
