Nancy Pelosi has been busted again. After the State of the Union speech, she ripped up her copy of the speech. She then told the press that it was not planned and that it was purely spontaneous. You should not be surprised to find out that was a lie. A video showing her pre-tearing the speech to make it easier to rip in two after the speech.
Video confirms Nancy Pelosi ripping up the #SOTU speech was PREMEDITATED:

To be fair about it, it must be really tough to be Nancy Pelosi. Even if she wanted to tell the truth, she can't. The truth is Democratic Kryptonite. She cannot go to the voters and point to a single accomplishment from 2019 that wasn't directly from President Trump, such as the First Step Act and the new trade deal with Mexico and Canada.
According to the Daily Mail, Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill angrily scolded Pence for saying the page ripping seemed premeditated:
The vice president said on ‘Fox & Friends’ Wednesday morning that, ‘It felt like it,’ when asked if the speaker had planned her move ahead of time.
‘Pelosi, in the final moments, tried to make it about her. And I think the American people see through it. I think they see through the pettiness, they see through the politics of all of it,’ Pence said.
A spokesperson for Pelosi insisted that her ripping up the text of Donald Trump’s speech was not pre-planned.
‘The Vice President’s complicity in last night’s reality show is disgusting. He is in no position to lecture anyone about the Constitution, decorum or respect as he cheerleads the mistruths of his master,’ Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill told DailyMail.com.
“The manifesto of mistruths presented in page after page of the address tonight should be a call to action for everyone who expects truth from the President and policies worthy of his office and the American people,” she said in a statement. “The American people expect and deserve a President to have integrity and respect for the aspirations for their children.”
The White House shot back: “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.”
