Nancy Pelosi Just Got Some Bad News That Might Make Her Regret Her SOTU Stunt

(Tea Party PAC) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi really might have stepped in the proverbial doodoo with that little stunt she pulled at the end of President Trump’s State of the Union address. You know, when she took it upon herself to rip up the copy of the speech she was given by the president?

As it turns out, this might have actually been a violation of ethics that could have some serious consequences for Pelosi. In fact, Rep. Matt Gaetz announced on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News program that he plans on filing an ethics complaint against the Speaker of the House for those very actions.

Here’s more from Breitbart:

A partial transcript is as follows:

LAURA INGRAHAM: Congressman Gaetz, you actually want to take a pretty aggressive step here. What is it?

REP. MATT GAETZ: Tomorrow, Laura, I will be filing charges against Nancy Pelosi in the House Ethics Committee. She disgraced the House of Representatives, she embarrassed our country, and she destroyed official records. The law does not allow the Speaker of the House to destroy the records of the House. The rules of the House do not permit some little temper tantrum because you don’t like what the President of the United States says.

You know what? A lot of Republicans are sick of the double standard here. When Joe Wilson made a comment and excited utterance, oh, the Democrats really brought the heat down on him — when he said that Obama lied about illegals getting healthcare under Obamacare. By the way, Joe Wilson was right. We’ve got to apply the same standards to the Democrats that they want to apply to us, and there will be an ethics investigation into Nancy Pelosi. We will start the ball rolling to have her censured. The first act begins tomorrow when Congressman Zeldin and I will join Kay Granger in a censure resolution, and we will force a vote on that resolution.

The White House wasn’t too thrilled with Nancy’s shredder routine either. Here’s more on that from the Daily Wire:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) dominated the headlines following President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday after she, standing directly behind the president, ripped up his speech for all the world to see, later telling the press that she did so because it was a “dirty speech” and that shredding it was better than the “alternative.” Shortly after, the White House issued its official response to Pelosi’s viral moment.

“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,” the White House tweeted. “That’s her legacy.”

Asked about her disrespectful actions, Pelosi told reporters that ripping up his “dirty speech” was the “courteous” thing to do considering the “alternative,” which she chose not to specify.

“It was the courteous thing to do, considering the alternative,” she said.

As The Daily Wire’s Amanda Prestigiacomo reported Tuesday night, Pelosi started off the SOTU by breaking tradition in refusing to announce President Trump properly. “Protocol, as decades of past SOTU addresses show, is for the House Speaker to announce the president by noting that it is their ‘high privilege and distinct honor’ to do so.”

“Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the President of the United States,” the traditional introduction states.

Instead, Pelosi conspicuously left out the key phrase, announcingsimply, “Members of Congress, the President of the United States.”

As The Daily Wire noted, as recently as 2015 then-House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) announced then-President Obama ahead of his SOTU address: “Members of congress, I have the high privilege and the distinct honor to present to you, the President of the United States.”

Pelosi pulled this stunt as a means of looking tough and disgusted so that she could appease the base of voters she knew were going to be disappointed when Trump was acquitted of all charges in his impeachment trial the following day. It was pre-planned, something that was evident when you rewatch the videos of the speech and see her ripping each page beforehand to ensure that the whole thing would rip at the end.

It’s an eye-roll inducing tactic, one that she will hopefully pay for with some sort of consequence. She really should resign her post as Speaker since she’s incapable of actually carrying out her duties objectively.

  1. I agree Pelosi should be walked out of the White House on put on a Plane and kicked out of the Country with all the other Losers around her, Mr. Trump has done alot of amazing things just with the People around him. Just think of all the Good he could of done with Help from the Other People in Congress, that Americans Voted in that was suppose to Be for America and Help America, but has Fooled the People, they should be walked out of the White House too. These People should be Fined, and given a application to McDonalds, in China or another Country, and see how far they would make it.

  2. I read all the comments about this situation and have to comment on Little Nancy’s actions

    She along with the Demos in Congress acted like little kids who didn’t get their way

    Congress and some of the Senate need to wake up and stop the BS – They work for us get paid with our money – Yet they only do things for themselves

    “Wake up” – Remember who you work for and do things for us

    Election time is just around the corner the voters are coming

    WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO WHEN THEY COME FOR YOU??

  3. I THINK SHE IS A DRUNK.NO RATIONAL PERSON WOULD REALLY ACT LIKE THIS.THIS NUT IS THIRD IN LINE OF SUCCESSION.I THINK THAT IS PRETTY SCARY DON’T YA THINK.

  4. Nancy P-lousy needs to be sent to prison and fined; along with the entire Dem. house of Congress. And fined just as much as the law will allow. It’s time these crybabies learn an expensive lesson, and make sure it comes out of their “war chest”.

  5. I think it is time for Pelosi to be fired. Her negative actions over anything President Trump does or says is just dividing this country further. She clearly has committed treason against A.erica and Americans. Her actions over the last 3 yrs. has shown her hatred against America her punishment should fit the crime. Anyone out in the real world be fired and this is exactly what should happen to her. I want to see the crooked government to be accountable. The truth is out there America. How long will it be until other crooked politicians like the Clintons, Obamas, Mueller, Schumer, Schiff, Nadler, Deep State, Soros, Omar, Ocasio-Cortez, and Tliab be brought to justice for treason, lying and laundering dirty money and accepting foreign money. These people need to go. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Hollywood needs to be made accountable for their actions also. Wake up America, stand up Christians before it is too late. Until something is done to the above crooks and terrorists are put in prison or escorted out of our country we cannot believe justice will be served. God Bless America!!

  6. I guess we’ll soon find out if Nancy Pelosi is also above the law like all other Democrats, while Republicans are indicted for the smallest of violations. Nancy Pelosi proclaimed that President Trump was not above the law, but it seems that Hillary Clinton, Joe & Hunter Biden, and Nancy Pelosi are.

  7. The President of the United States of America
    Voted in office by the people of this great country deserves respect by the American people, as well as other nations but first and foremost by those given an opportunity to help and assist in getting thing done that benefit our country by those in political office. Wasting the time of the President and the tax payers money shows how little the respect the Democratic Party has not only for our President but also represents their view for the safety and cares of the true needs of this Nation. To publicly take a stand against the leader of our country in my view is treason. Nothing short of removal from an office that is a privaliage to be allowed to serve will be sufficient. The moment Mr. Donald Trump became The President of the US, he became the Leader of this country. RESPECT should not be an option. If you are a public servant and can not find it possible stand behind the
    President of the United States, do us all a favor and please resign your position. Because your wasting his time and our money. The money wasted on investigation could of built a much need wall. As well as freed up Politicians time to actually do things that make a difference for the people. I pray Nancy……that the people of this great country
    Remember you always for who you are…
    An example of discrace and what not to do.
    Be ashamed. You embarrassed us all.

  8. SHE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT SHE WAS DOING AND IT STARTED WITH THE IMPROPER WAY OF PRESENTING HIM TO CHAMBERS. AND I THINK TRUMP KNEW SO WHEN HE ENTERED HE DIDN’T SHAKE HER HAND. WHAT MAN WOULD DO THAT AND BOW TO HER. AND HER QUICK ANSWER FOR ME DIDN’T FOOL ME ONE BET. FOR HER IT AS A DISPLAY OF POWER OVER HIM, OR SO SHE THOUGHT —-AND IT BACKFIRED.!

    • PRESIDENT TRUMP DID NOT SHAKE VICE PRESIDENT PENSE’S HAND EITHER SO IT WAS NOT A SLAP IN CORRUPT PELOSI’S FACE! THIS PIECE OF CRAP’S RIPPING UP THE STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS WAS PLANNED IN ADVANCE AND AS USUAL IT BACKFIRED ON HER! WINNING BACK THE HOUSE AND HOLDING THE SENATE WOULD BE SO SWEET AND I HOPE IT HAPPENS! EVERYONE BE SURE TO VOTE IN NOVEMBER AND VOTE FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP! HE WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT!

  9. I am convinced that Nancy Pelosi is INSANE. There are a lot of Insane institutions in So. California. (Los Angeles Area) that is where she should be.

  10. Pelosi needs to be removed immediately. She is a disgrace to our Nation and Pelosi is unfit to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Government.

  11. It is high time that Nancy Pelosi is held accountable for the disrespect shown to the American people, regarding both the lack of respect in her announcement of the POTUS, prior to his speach, and more importantly the ripping up of the copy of his speach. How is it possible that the Democrats in high ranking positions of the house, be allowed to speak and show total falsehoods and actions and get away Scott Free!?

  12. Pelosi should be fired from her job as Speaker of the House. She has focused 3 years on ruining POTUS, and has done LITTLE for the American people she supposedly represents. She has not the right to throw tantrums like a silly school girl who did not get her way, and needs to grow up, put the past behind her, and work cooperatively with POTUS. I am sure many Americans have disliked their bosses but had to work with them despite the issues, OR they got fired!

  13. I ask you please remove Nancy Palosi from office. As I watched her with my grandchildren I was not informed ahead of time that her actions were going to be rated pg 13. Now I have to discuss with them how her actions were not acceptable and that it was not okay for them to think there would be no punishment if they were to act like that in school

  14. Yes she should resign her mental state is definitely questionable. Which makes any decisions she makes questionable too!

  15. Leave her alone until the 2020 elections are over. Republicans need the House back and the in-fighting she has allowed to happen in the party will benefit the Republican party. A new leader at this time who can bring the party back together would be bad at this time.

  16. It is high time that someone in Congress take steps and start trying to remove and hopefully bring to trial these loathsome creatures from the Damnoratic party. Justice needs to be brought down on their heads like a giant landslide. President Trump and the rest of the Republican party need and deserve our support. Let’s bring back the House and get some work done for we the people!

  17. It wasn’t just about tearing up the President’s speech it was her actions while he was making The Best Speech Ever And The Guest He Had Very Disrespectful For Our Great President His Guest And The AMERICAN People NANCY HAS GOT TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE

  18. This is a clear violation of law. She didnt announce the President as she should of and tearing up speech is a protocol of House rules which can be fined and 3 years in jail..if a Republican would of done this the Democrats would be up in arms demanding justice…she needs removed and investigated

  19. Pelosi is an evil, hateful, jealous, angry malicious bully who makes everything about herself. She does nothing for this country but apparently thinks she runs it.

  20. Personally, I think she should simply have been ignored or sent to bed without any dinner. The woman is childish and silly. But, she got her wish and people will remember her far longer than they will remember the speech. She says Trump is impeached forever, and yes, history will record that he was impeached. But they will also record that it was the weakest, nonsense ever perpetrated against the American People-and make no mistake, that is exactly who it hurt-all because of their insane hatred of Donald Trump. She was the leader of that debacle, and her name will go down as the leader of one of the most corrupt, kangaroo courts ever assembled. She should be ashamed and beg forgiveness. Not sure I would want her to pray for me, since she is not much of a Christian-she is all in to disobey any Federal law she doesn’t like, though she had a hand in passing it, and she thinks it is fine to kill babies-nothing Christian about either of those stands. Wonder who she prays to – her church does not condone infanticide or civil disobedience, for sure.

  21. Pelosi is a desperate woman that has no business being Speaker of the House. She is an over aged brat that needs to step down for the sake of the American people. Shame on her for disrespecting the office of the President, like him or not he is our President and deserves that respect.

  22. I recall her saying she prays for the President~ Certainly not religious prayers just Prayers that she can erase us, our constitution. our Pres, .our values. She is a complete detriment to our America and the PEOPLE. Her money and POWER, which she believes vindicates her, mean NOTHING if not doing her job for the American People and honoring Pres Trump.

  23. She should be removed from office, arrested for treason and made to pay back out of her personal millions, the millions of dollars she cost the taxpayers. She is a disgrace with mental issues (personally I think she has had a stroke) and is unfit to serve the people.

    • Remove her from her office, as well as Congress! She just moved to the number one spot as America’s most hated woman, with Hillary dropping down to number 2.

  24. what a piece of work> any respect I had for the woman for her position and tenure has been flushed down the toilet with this latest childish display during a recognition of the honored attendees. She is a disgraceful hideous person who can not and will not and , apparently , will never honor our America, OUR ELECTED PRESIDENT and WE, THE PEOPLE. Who needs this crap when sooo many GOOD people in our country. A total waste of TIME and MONEY on her pettiness. Concerned about rising national debt? ask Nancy to help out >CHG her for her nonsense

  25. It’s about time someone showed them they aren’t above the law! That’s all they can say about Trump. But they are the ones that are braking laws, to many to count. They think they can do anything they want. And so far it’s been true because nobody has really don’t anything about they’re bull sh-t. It’s time they pay for what they have done to our country!

  26. She should be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. That is dismissed from the house and jailed for 3 years. Also, cannot ever again hold a position of anything in the United States of America’s government. That would be the most fair thing to do. It would be serving her with what she deserves and should get. If she cannot resign herself she needs to be removed just like she would remove anyone else that she saw fit. No double stand here in this instance.

  27. When the Democrats in the House cheer her for her despicable actions at the SOTU that says everything we need to know about this party. They hate this country and if they get power in 2020 they will destroy this nation. All you have to do is look into their eyes and you will see a Demonic hatred for one man and the people who support him. It is time we on the right take the fight to them. Enough of being nice.

    • There is no-more getting along between the dominate parties. This is now, and has been, the new “2nd” American Civil War. The major battle has begun because of the embedded “swamp” located deep in the mud along with the surface creatures apparent as Pelosi, Schumer, Schift, and Nadler. This nation to exist as a Republic must vote this insurgence of Democrat Marxist Socialism out of existence by whatever means necessary “now” through the upcoming elections and our court systems all the way to the Supreme Court as necessary. The “Freddy Freeloader” system of government propped up continuously by the Democrats must end. This country is imploding at break-neck speed mainly because of division created by extremely Democrat main stream media. The visceral hate and mockery they spew daily only incites more hate towards conservative values. Love of country is absent from this “new far-left Democrat Party”. They must be crushed as the Confederates were in the “1st” Civil War. The current hate has reached so high, that families are divided, friendships have been destroyed, work-place environments are no longer cohesive. Powder kegs of divisive assemblies of different political view-points are on the verge of exploding physical violence across this nation. It’s apparent more-so every waking day. The tensions are so extreme, that one can literally “feel it” like having a 6th sense that something terrible is about to happen across this nation due to this political division. Citizens used to be able to just discuss their differences in “peace” and ending the conversation with “let’s just agree to disagree”. Those days seem 100% to be over, as is witnessed in our current Congress. What’s the answer? I don’t know, but the 2nd war has arrived almost full crescendo, and the future outlook is currently “bleak”. This country always seems to “bind together as one in majority” when the nation is threatened by another nation, terrorism in mass, or natural calamity. So America, what’s it going to take to unlight the fuse on this powder-keg political division has caused? It seems as impossible as decoding the encryption of the iphone or bitcoin.

  28. When bad behavior is not chastised, as we have witnessed by the Democratic Party over the last 3 years, it becomes habitual…it’s time to draw the line & take the necessary steps in this case, to censure Pelosi, for her actions!

  29. Thank u mr gaetz for filing charges on her it’s high time she gets charges filed on her just wish you could file charges on Schiff and Schumer as well they have commited treason over and over again it’s time they pay also .

  30. I pray fervently for removal of the Speaker of the House of Representatives. I am a 24 year retired military officer who has never been more ashamed of our government than her actions at the end of President Trump’s State of the Union address. Speaker Pelosi has no right to remain. God Bless America!

  31. I believe Pelosi should pay with consequences for her disrespect. If we let her get away with what she did, it sets the stage for MORE disrespect. It will show ALL senators that the speaker of the house is not above being punished for her personal feelings. If you destroy official documents, you break a law. This is not a game!! Pelosi has NO professionalism and should not hold the office of Speaker of the House…..Speaker of the People!! She is a total embarrassment!! Taking her down would possibly calm the turmoil within the house and set a president of what happens when you disrespect and throw personal temper tantrums!!

  32. LMAO…filing a complaint with the house ethics committee. Like that’s going to go anyplace. The house is filled with NancyRATS.

  33. Pelosi is the one who needs to be fired or step down as speaker. The childishly and disrespect and negative attitude of her ways needs to be done away with. I will vote straight Republican until she is gone. I am tired of her embarrassing America and putting down American conservatives. I have always been a proud American but that is changing. I have seen airports cleaner in 3rd world countries than LAX or San Francisco.

  34. Looks to me like the “SQUAD: has taken over as the “Speaker”? This old hag Pelosi, was always installed by Big Money/Deep State, so she’s Illegal anyway, get rid of this, “UANAMERICAN CREEP”! A N D N O W!

  35. YES, Nancy, we the citizens have been in overload with your double standards and totally believe you should have the “”NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW” CONSEQUENCES applied to your tantrum and resulting in ripping (destroying) official government documents! YOU have made this statement numerous times in the recent past as a part of attempting your failed/fraudulent fantasy’s of removing Trump! From what has been recently discussed on facebook, it appears possible that the Pelosi clan may be hunting for a escape from the consequences involved in breaking laws?? Nancy, then Paul Jr. are “not above the law,” either?

  36. I surely hope Matt Gaetz and others will follow through with their lawsuit against Nancy Pelosi. She is so unfit for the Speaker of the House….I simply can’t believe how the Dems can’t see all the things this President has accomplished. Just think how much he could have accomplished with Dems help.

  37. Just like the speaker said in the past “No one is Above the Law “ and that includes her. She can’t do whatever she wants. Even a regular Govt Employee are held from High Standard of Ethics , what more if you’re the Speaker of the House of Representatives. To Republicans, don’t let her get a pass.

  38. nadler schiff and pelosi need to be removed from the government because they will continue to cause trouble and not get anything accompolished. replace them with someone who will help the american people and not destroy our country.

  39. all of them are above law and nothing is ever done to democrat american haters like the 5 or any of the rest of those low lifes like shittie and the midget fatboy naddler liers they all need get something done its a joke and disgrace were is justice at i pray for them right to all go jail or get run out country they all need get voted out office no one with any pride for america should vote for them dont vote for democrat if it means a vote for one them dont vote at all is much better for america then vote for democrat thank you

  40. She committed a crime by by tearing up official government documents. As she proclaims to be so gung-ho about such matters; she should be held accountable for her own crimes.

  41. Simply Put, She should be removed as Speaker of the House, mainly for many reasons, One, which is the worst violation by destroying his Speech ,and by Introducing President
    Trump only as MEMBERS OF CONGRESS, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, SHE PERSONALLY DECIDED TO NOT INTRODUCE PRESIDENT TRUMP \
    Members of Congress, I have the High Priviledge and the distinct Honor to present to you, THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, SHE SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE IMMEDIATELY AND CHARGES BROUGHT AGAINST HER FOR DESTROYING HIS SPEECH.SIMPLY THIS MUST BE DONE.

  42. Something has to be done on disciplining this woman for her acting like a 8yr. old!! She is supposed to represent the U.S.??? She sits at the #3, position from being President, should something happen to the President. Is this what we have to take over if he was to be removed? She is a clown.

  43. Nancy, go home, you’ve shown the American people you caved to your lobbyist’s pressure, and when the ethics committee throws you out, tell your friend Hillary they’re coming after her. You’ve been swimming in the swamp to long.

  44. she needs to be made to resign….how can she call herself a catholic…that’s a disgrace and violates all we stand for…..love and forgiveness she stands for HATERED…..and even her face is narled with hate…we need to get this satonic women.. and evil person out of our US ….come on america we let to many get by with this like H. C Linton and so on…we love our America and it’s time to take stand against…..these mentally ill people….let’s fight with our great President….DONALD TRUMP…….and bury thsee evil people….GOD BLESS AMERICA.

  45. She acted like a spoiled little brat and disgraced herself and members of Congress! She should step down for her actions we’re despicable! She no longer belongs in Congress!

  46. Nancy Pelosi is acting like the spoiled brat she is! We don’t need spoiled brats in our government especially as speaker of the house,

  47. Let the farce play out, and the American people will soon know whether or not AND to what extent the Congress in general and the House of Representatives in particular have been PERverted, SUBverted, infiltrated and otherwise undermined by the bottom feeders and other swamp dwellers who make up the Deep State! Then, heads should roll down Pennsylvania Avenue to the satisfaction of every American patriot fortunate enough to witness these times!

  48. Pelosi states, “he is impeached forever”. When, in fact the President is “acquitted” forever!
    She is incompetent to be Speaker of the House. She unfit to be an American citizen.
    Look at her state of California. Homeless, drugs and lives behind her walled castle. What a hypocrit.

  49. Is she really above the law? Nail here to the wall. Term limits. They are all bought corrupt and should not have so much power.

  50. It is about time she is held to the standards in which she hold others too. She needs to respect the Office of The President, even if she hates the person filling that role! After all she has twisted everything to look bad for President Trump when she has deliberately use party affiliation to divide the country. Than to do her job to serve this country.

  51. When these same persons who support a president who broke two Federal laws which would be felonies if anyone else did what Trump did, but complain because the Speaker of the House tore up her copy of the SOTU speech which was in no way the truth about the State of the Union it was a Campaign speech in every aspect, something no other President has ever done at a STOU speech.

    • What federal laws did he break? The executive branch’s job, according to the constitution, is to basically obstruct congress. That’s why we have three co-equal branches of government, each branch kinda “obstructs” the others to keep them in check. It’s their job. I understand why you don’t know this, you probably went to college, so you know nothing but propaganda, which is just shit. Also, the President is in almost complete control of foreign policy. So, you’re saying the President abused his power by using the power he was given by the constitution. It don’t make no sense. You can believe me for now, I haven’t finished college yet. I working on a degree in political science, so in a couple of years I should be as dumb as you.

  52. Yes

    She should be given her goodbye as speaker of democrates for the disgusting display of total ruidness to the President and republican members and our President Trump of the whole United States. What a disgusting act she put on for a person of her once stature of the USA. ALSO showing her family and grand children a total nasty nasty person that should step down immediately. ! ! ! !

  53. She showed her true colors. She is a vindictive, hateful, arrogant and disgraceful person who should in NO WAY keep her position. What she did was so disrespectful to all of America, the President and those who the President had there as his guest. I have absolutely no respect what so ever left for Pelosi. She should be held accountable for her disgraceful actions.
