Appearing on Fox and Friends, Vice President Pence blasted Nancy Pelosi for tearing up her copy of President Trump’s speech, calling it a “new low.”
Pence also predicted Pelosi would not be speaker much longer implying Republicans would take back the House after the 2020 election, saying “I just have a strong feeling that she’s going to be the last Speaker of the House to sit in that chair for a long time.”
I didn’t see her do it. I found out just a few moments later and I think it was a new low. I wasn’t sure if she was ripping up the speech or ripping up the constitution.
It’s clear the contrast here was a president who spent an hour-and-a-half making the speech about America and Nancy Pelosi in the final moments tried to make it about her.
I think the American people see through it. They see through the pettiness, they see through the politics of all of it
I think what they got last night was a speech that lifted up the country, that celebrated the incredible progress we’ve made in our economy, rebuilding our military, strengthening our court, but the stories that the president told were American stories and I just know it was a great blessing to people all across America and it’s one of the reasons why you see the momentum growing behind this president.
I just have a strong feeling that she’s going to be the last Speaker of the House to sit in that chair for a long time
