President Trump appeared to mock House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this week by gleefully handing out souvenir pens at the USMCA signing ceremony a move that came after Pelosi was slammed for handing out souvenir pens with her name on them on the day she signed the resolution to transmit two articles of impeachment against Trump to the Senate.
Pelosi, D-Calif., gave out the commemorative pens Jan. 15 to a number of House Democrats who were involved in impeachment, a stark contrast from what she had repeatedly said was a somber and prayerful act. This led a number of commentators to condemn her as hypocritical and tone-deaf.
You know what you hand out pens for? Accomplishments. Like, say, signing a historic trade deal with China, Elizabeth Harrington, a spokeswoman for the Republican National Committee, tweeted back then in response to Pelosis gesture. So its fitting that Democrats are handing out pens for their sole accomplishment: impeachment. Democrats have done NOTHING for the American people. [ ]
Handing out ceremonial pens is a common tradition among American elected officials as when a president or other leader uses a pen to sign a historical document, it also becomes historical. President Barack Obama, for example, used 22 pens to sign his signature piece of legislation, the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.

So, Pelosi in her position as prime minister of the United States handed out pens when she signed the impeachment articles so that if the President handed out pens he could be accused of mocking her
I said, those pens Nan Poolosi handed out are going to be worth a lot of money..but not for the reason they thought.
History is not going their way.:)
Fox has lost it
All President hand out pens after signing bills etc
Actually, handing out pens for signing historic legislation is pretty common. Handing out pens for impeachment is not. Apparently Tyler Olson is just plain ignorant.

This is not mocking. When Trump signs the arrest for treason act and hands out pens, THAT will be mocking.
He was handing out pens he didnt even use to sign the document ... so it seems like it was supposed to be a joke. LOL.
Bkmk Trump pens
That was awesome.
Maybe, but I’ve seen him hand out pens before.
Pelosi exposed her crass political ambitions-——”playing” president, by handing out pens at the impeachment signing.
I think it’s the other way around. Every President for decades has used numerous pens when signing major pieces of legislation. It’s become a tradition. But Pelosi’s stunt was the first time I’ve ever heard of the Speaker or Senate Majority Leader doing something like that. I think she was mocking him by acting in a presidential fashion.
Trump should use the State of the Union to publicly thank Nancy for all her prayers for him.
I understand POTUS made it into a mock by handing out, not pens, but sharpies.
