Why has Stormy Daniels never been invited to SOTU? Too expensive?
I cheered when she did that.
Then I wept for our country.
I missed it. What’s she ripping in half?
A copy of his speech.
Woah. I did see that he refused to shake her hand. Probably right before this.
Her copy of the SOTU speech. Worth noting that Trump snubbed her earlier by not accepting her handshake when she handed him his speech.
Tit for that, Preznit Tinyhands.
Cue all the butthurt righties unironically whinging about norms, decorum, and tradition.
I’m just waiting for some Dem to finally lose it and horse-whip some GOPer with a cane, Brooks-on-Sumner style…
Guess she’ll be starting new impeachment hearings. Start before they reach a verdict Nancy - and use inherent contempt- arrest those who refuse to honor their subpoenas.
This really is what she should do. It ain’t over.
After snubbing the presiding leader of Congress during a joint session, when he’s there at the invitation of Congress, shredding his speech at the end was justified.
eta: Spare-wheel Pence was wearing his leader of the Senate hat, and there’s a reason Trump is positioned in front of and below them.

/considering the alternatives
Unfortunately, for folks with any honor or personal morality, there is not much choice. Either jettison any vestige of self-respect or leave. This means that any “adults in the room” left have chosen power over honor and deserve neither. This administration is a disgrace, especially when you consider that they have set up a situation where Bolton and Tillerson are considered the honorable good guys! ( just typing that)
