President Trump, under the shadow of impeachment, gave the best State of the Union address in history. He cataloged his successes and painted a bright picture of the future. He brought us to tears with the story of the Tuskegee Airman, whom he promoted to general at the age of 100, and with the sad story of the death of Kayla Mueller at the hands of ISIS, and with his spontaneous awarding of the Medal of Freedom to Rush Limbaugh, a cultural icon who is facing a struggle with lung cancer.
Meanwhile, the Democrats sat on their hands. They showed themselves to be interested in nothing but power. They are haters who don’t care about the great economy benefitting millions of Americans. They don’t care about school children striving for a better life. They don’t care about the safety of our cities and the danger presented by illegal immigrants.
Summing it all up, the moment that will live forever as the symbol of Democratic disdain — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripping up the president’s speech — saying later that “It was the courteous thing to do, considering the alternative.” I cannot think of a more crass and craven action by a politician in the last 100 years, if ever, and Pelosi’s disdain for the 63 million people who elected President Trump shall live in infamy,
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich suggests she should be censured by the House, but that would require her Democrat colleagues to hold her in contempt when they themselves are equally contemptible. Not necessary. The hearts and minds of patriotic Americans have already censured her. It is the courteous thing to do, considering the alternative.
