Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is responding to the internet’s reaction to her viral moment during President Trump’s State of the Union address, where she ripped the pages of his speech as she stood behind him.
“It’s amazing to me, the response I received from around the country, overwhelming because it let off steam for people. I wish I didn’t have to do that. I wish the speech were dignified and truthful, but it wasn’t, so it was the least I could do,” said Pelosi. “There’s some people criticizing me for not doing more, but that’s the least I could do.”
In addition, Pelosi addressed the issue of fake information spreading on the internet and the rise of more women in Congress.
