Summary

Throughout the speech, Pelosi avoided looking at the president and at times shook her head “no” as he spoke about health care and Social Security.When Trump concluded his address, Pelosi picked up her copy of the prepared remarks and ripped them in half, producing yet another viral moment.“It was the courteous thing to do considering the alternative,” Pelosi told reporters afterward.Both moments are likely to be repeatedly played on cable news throughout Wednesday as the Senate marches toward a vote of acquittal for Trump.They set the tone for what is likely to be a nasty 2020.The chamber was polarized — even for the Trump eraThe speech was marked by numerous standing ovations from Republicans in the chamber, but Democrats were loath to give Trump recognition for most of the night.Such behavior isn’t so unusual in a State of the Union address, but there were still moments on Tuesday night that reflected the uniquely negative feelings Democrats are holding toward the president.As the president bragged about low unemployment and touted the historically low jobless rates for African Americans, Democrats were glued to their seats.They jeered when the president noted millions of Americans were no longer on food stamp rolls.
