Moments after President Donald Trump was acquitted of both counts of impeachment by the Senate, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) mocked a stunt pulled by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at Tuesday night’s State of the Union address to Congress.

Pelosi made headlines Tuesday when, on-camera behind Pres. Trump as he concluded his address Tuesday, she ripped up the president’s State of the Union speech, later declaring that it was “the most courteous thing she could think to do to Trump’s “manifesto of mistruths.”

Pelosi had previously claimed that, regardless of the outcome of the Senate vote, Trump will be “impeached forever” – a claim refuted by Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz.

After Trump’s acquittal, Rep. McCarthy posted a video on Twitter, in which he declares, “Acquitted for life” and tears up what, presumably, are the articles of impeachment.

On Sunday, McCarthy pinned the following post to the top of his Twitter page:

“RT to make sure Speaker Pelosi knows —> the President will be acquitted for life.”
