House Speaker Nancy Pelosi explained that Democrats expected President Trump to honor Democratic Rep. John Lewis, not Rush Limbaugh, when he referenced someone with stage 4 cancer during his State of the Union address.

Trump, during his Tuesday speech, awarded the conservative radio host with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a day after Limbaugh revealed his advanced lung cancer diagnosis. First lady Melania Trump placed the award on Limbaugh in the middle of the president's address to both chambers of Congress.

During Pelosi's Thursday press conference, she explained that in the moment leading up to Trump presenting the award to Limbaugh, many Democrats in attendance thought he was actually going to honor Lewis, who was diagnosed with late-stage pancreatic cancer last year.

"Let me say, how I can give a Medal of Honor — do it your own office. We don’t come in your office and do congressional business," the speaker began. "Why are you doing that here?

The irony is if he had mentioned Lewis, Pelosi would just claim he was using a black man as a prop to hide his racism.

You can’t win with these clowns.

Fake rage. If Trump honored Lewis they would accuse him of being a hypocrite or pandering ...

The Demagogic Party a-holes could choose to live civil lives in a civil society, but they've opted not to. No one has forced them to act like the a-holes they are.

Her legacy is a failed impeachment and tearing up the SOU address.

I could only find this article which is a shame. Because Pelosi went on at length in her “How dare you do this in MY House!” mode.

She was mad as heck that Rush got awarded the Medal of Honor during Trump’s State of the Union. She was very mad at this way Trump aced her out. Acing out the Dems as they were forced to sit through Rush getting awarded. I am still laughing.

Dems as captive audience to this and their stooge media too. Trump is a master at forcing a recalcitrant media to cover what he wants covered.

John Lewis can have a Medal of freedom after he has a national radio show 5 days a week for 30 years.

I call BS on this.......I think the “”they thought” part was thought up AFTER the SOTU...since the left loves to cause division and play the race card.

In what alternate universe did Pelosi think Trump was going to honor Lewis, a vicious Trump hater? If a Trump wants to honor Lewis then he can do it at a time of his choosing.
