House Speaker Nancy Pelosi clapped at President Trump during the State of the Union address. It was clearly directed at Trump as the two locked eyes. While liberals have been celebrating what they want to see in the gesture, Pelosi has been forced to set the record straight.
With many conservatives slamming the move, labeling it “childish” or “petty,” Pelosi has come out to say that “it wasn’t sarcastic.”
“Look at what I was applauding,” Pelosi explained. “I wanted him to know that was a very welcome message.”
Yet Democrats don’t want to see the two most powerful opposing political figures in the United States getting along. They want to show that there can only be a winner and a loser.
So the liberal media has run amuck with its portrayal that Pelosi was being condescending to the president. Fueling the divide that they’ve worked so hard to maintain since Trump announced he would put up a wall along the southern border.
Now Pelosi will be the one having to continue to contend that she was only supporting a positive message.
