House Democrats have blocked a measure that would have officially rebuked Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her disrespectful gesture of tearing up the President Trumps State-of-the-Union speech on national television.

The motion was tabled by a vote of 224-193 along party lines.

Republicans drafted the measure Wednesday, the day after Pelosi shredded the document as she stood at the podium behind Trump, who had just concluded his one-hour, 18-minute address to a joint session of Congress.

“While still presiding over the joint session, Speaker Pelosi ripped up an official copy of the President’s remarks, which contained the names and stories of these patriots who sacrificed so much for our country,” the resolution said. “Whereas the conduct of Speaker Pelosi was a breach of decorum and degraded the proceedings of the joint session, to the discredit of the House, be it resolved that the House of Representatives disapproves of the behavior of Speaker Pelosi during the joint session of Congress held on February 4, 2020.”

While Republicans denounced Pelosi’s actions and widely praised Trump’s address, Democrats gave Pelosi a standing ovation for the move when she met with them privately the next day.

GOP Senator Mocks Pelosi’s Gesture

Meanwhile, GOP Senator Paul Mitchell, mocked Pelosi’s disrespectful gesture by tearing up a Democratic resolution on the Senate floor. On Thursday, the Michigan lawmaker referenced Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) latest political stunt during the State of the Union address. Rep. Mitchell said he watched “the debate over expressing one’s opinion and First Amendment rights” after the State of the Union and then proceeded to mimic Pelosi’s actions. The resolution Rep. Mitchell ripped up essentially disagreed with the Trump administration’s plan to allow states to convert Medicaid spending into block grants.

Republican lawmakers in the House criticized the Democrat resolution by suggesting they are more concerned about opposing President Trump’s policies than their willingness to debate and enact meaningful legislation.

  1. They should shut down Pelosi. She is a disgrace to the House and has disrespected America and the whole Justice System with her kindergarten behavior.

  2. The American public knows what she did – she deserves to be rebuked – anyone else would be. But we have “her number” and she is not getting away with anything. The woman has become totally useless and can not function in a bi-partisan way so she needs to be voted out of office.
