(CNSNews.com) - Reaction to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripping up President Trump's State of the Union speech on live television continues to reverberate on Twitter, with President Donald Trump retweeting some of the #PelosiTantrum criticism.
First, Trump thanked his supporters: "It was a great and triumphant evening for our Country. Thank you for all of the nice remarks and wonderful reviews of my State of the Union Speech. It was my great honor to have done it!" Trump tweeted early Wednesday morning.
Then came the Trump retweets aimed at Pelosi, as follows:
-- (The White House tweeted and Trump retweeted): 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.
-- (From George Washington University Law Professor Jonathan Turley): The facial expressions and head shaking is a new low for the House. Moreover, the protests of members was incredibly inappropriate. A president speaks at the SOTU as a guest of both houses. (To which Trump responded: "Thank you Jonathan, and great job!")
-- (From former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley): No matter how you feel or what you disagree with, remember others are watching. This was unbecoming of someone at her level in office.
-- (From Fox News contributor Katie Pavlich): The only thing Pelosi and dems have is her ripping up President Trump's speech at the end. Petty and pathetic. Democrats are losing. (To which someone replied: "Nancy’s legacy is ripping up a document she is mandated to preserve. She’s a complete failure")
Then came a flurry of presidential retweets from some not-so-well-known Americans:
-- She might as well have torn up the Democrat’s chance next election. She is uncouth! @SpeakerPelosi should be censured! Her constant faces and talking under her breath are beneath the office. Terrible. (To which someone tweeted, "Uncouth is too polite.")
-- It's incredible the US has a person like her in that position. What she did at the end was incredible! I couldn't believe how she could show such disrespect for all those people Trump mentioned in his speech. Appalling. #PelosiTantrum @SpeakerPelosi
-- Perhaps Nancy’s little tantrum of tearing up the #SOTU speech was a slick maneuver to get people to talk about her instead of POTUS’s winning record and great speech Nah, she’s just a bitter drama queen pitching a little hissy fit #PelosiTantrum
--Don’t let #NancyPelosi dilute or take from the @realDonaldTrump’s brilliant #StateOfTheUnion.
-- It is hilarious to see Speaker Pelosi so #Classless and #Broken. They know 2020 is gone. Who is their hero Pete Buttigieg? Ok. They know it's over and they cannot stand it. #PelosiTantrum #PettyPelosi.
-- Way to not only represent yourself and your party. She is an absolute disgrace and she is everything that is wrong with our government. Perfect example of why term limits are a must for the whole government. #PelosiTantrum
-- Nancy Pelosi ripping up the State of the Union speech...I assume she planned to throw the trash on the sidewalk, given the state of her district in California? #PelosiTantrum
-- This is pure gold, because she’s the one parading how immature and childish the president is but then look how she acted last night #PelosiTantrum
-- Today - The Senate gets to pull a #PelosiTantrum and do to the Impeachment Articles what she did to the SOTU. Karma is a bitch !
-- This is what building bridges to the American people looks like.. The #PelosiTantrum is a tragic image of how divided our country is.
-- (Were) those the Articles of Impeachment Nancy was ripping up #PelosiTantrum
-- Replying to @SpeakerPelosi #PelosiTantrum
-- A speech that
•Honored so many Americans•Celebrated a strong US economy•Seeks to continue lifting people and communities out of poverty•Called for action on bipartisan issues
She wants no part of it. #DemocratsHateAmerica
--The only thing Nancy Pelosi proved is that liberalism is an ideology of insane hate and rage. She should be censured and forced to resign. #tcot #MAGA #PelosiTantrum #SOTU2020
-- History won't be kind for Nancy Pelosi: she will be remembered as the Speaker who initiated a malicious impeachment, who's son Paul Pelosi was on the board of directors of Ukrainian Viscoil, and above all as the last Speaker of the House of the Democratic Party. #PelosiTantrum
-- Dear USA, Our political system here (UK) isn't perfect, but our Speaker is supposed to be impartial and neutral - and seen to be so. He/she is removed from party affiliation while he/she holds the role of Speaker. Pelosi is a disgrace - whatever you think of Trump. #PelosiTantrum
-- It's perfect that #PelosiTantrum is trending. What a humiliating night for her all the way around. Nance - you might wanna go ahead and rip up those impeachment articles while you're at it. Today's gonna be a good day.
-- That was weak, Nancy. I wish she held her cool. Plays into every female stereotype. #PelosiTantrum
