Nancy Pelosi should be ashamed

After President Donald Trump’s outstanding State of the Union address to the nation, Speaker Nancy Pelosi made an outrageous display of contempt, both for our president and also the office of the president. Tearing up her copy of the speech is the crescendo of hatred and impeachment insolence following three years of Democrat, Hollywood and media insults against Trump and against half the USA who support his policies. Whether Pelosi was trying to placate her radical Democrat socialists or show disgust for being a 2016 election sore loser, there’s no excuse. And no Nancy, Trump doesn’t need your prayers.

Regardless of his past and personality we have an amazing president! Largely financing his own 2016 election (owing nothing to legions of lobbyists and foreigners), giving away his presidential salary, a history of not drinking, smoking or doing drugs, up early in the morning till late night, this patriotic president works relentlessly to root out Washington corruption and better our country. Despite unremitting criticism and subversive machinations of Obama holdovers, it’s astounding what he has accomplished. A booming economy, record employment, revival of doomed oil, gas and coal industries, new North America and China trade deals, revival of strong military, keeping us out of war, appointing constitutional judges, affirming our national sovereignty and sanctity of life.

Our president deserves acquittal, also an apology from Democrats who no longer resemble the party of our late great JFK. We can accept our elections or lose our republic.
