Former House Speaker Fumes at Nancy Pelosi, Says Censure Could be Coming

If House Speaker Nancy Pelosi isn’t sipping a stiff drink right about now, she ought to be.

This has been a horrendous week for Madam Speaker, and it could get worse still.  Not only has President Trump been acquitted in his Senate impeachment trial, but Pelosi herself was snubbed by Trump for a handshake during the State of the Union address on Tuesday night.

At the conclusion of Trump’s speech, Pelosi then seemed to get her revenge, as she dramatically tore the gifted copy of Trump’s address in half.

It was this petulant, childish action that has a former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, suggesting that Pelosi could be facing serious punishment.

From Twitter:

“As Speaker of the House for four State of the Unions by a President of the other party I am disgusted and insulted by the viciously partisan action of Nancy Pelosi tearing up the speech,” Gingrich wrote. “She isn’t clever or cute her childishness insults our American traditions -should be censured.”

Later in the Day on Wednesday, longtime White House adviser Kellyanne Conway had a similar suggestion, stating that Pelosi could be facing a Senate resolution condemning her actions.

Madam Speaker will likely be asking herself if it was all worth it…possibly over that aforementioned libation.
