House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended her decision to rip up President Donald Trump's State of the Union address earlier this month, a dramatic move that was criticized by Republicans as being disrespectful and a "breach of decorum."
"One of my disappointments is the fact that with all that we have done legislatively, whether its equal pay for equal work, raising the minimum wage, gun violence protection, issues that relate to our children, the list goes on. I thought, well, let's get attention on the fact that what he said here today was not true," Pelosi told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an interview from the Munich Security conference Saturday. The full interview will air on CNN International at 1 p.m. ET on Monday.
Pelosi reiterated that she had no intention of tearing up her copy of Trump's annual address to Congress, but that as she read along, she "realized that almost every page had something in it that was objectionable."
The tension on display at this year's State of the Union came a day before the GOP-led Senate was expected to and eventually voted to acquit Trump of two articles of impeachment.
"You can't have an acquittal unless you have a trial and you can't have a trial without witnesses and documents. So he can say he was acquitted, and the headlines can say acquitted but he's impeached forever," Pelosi told Amanpour on Saturday.

If shes still defending this action almost two weeks later then it means its become politically damaging to the RATs. We still have almost two weeks left in February and theyre in meltdown mode! Its going to be a long nine months with these desperate idiots!
Somebody please post that picture of Pelosi ripping up the Constitution. It needs to be posted as often as possible.
I predict she retires when this gig is up. She's like 78....and nuts.
The State of the Democratic Party: Still Hurting
The Grim Ripper. The most infantile political behavior I’ve ever witnessed.
When you have to defend or explain what you did you have lost.
Were either alcohol or pain meds involved?
Seems like a person with lessened impulse control, operating with the spite level of a four-year-old child.
Dementia may be a factor, but that is a diagnosis best left to the experts.
the fact she’s still talking about it is proof enough she knows this is going to be a problem in November...
The Best Is Yet To Come - Trump 2020
Nancy, It sure would be a shame if everyone saw this..
she keeps digging herself in deeper and deeper
a sure sign of insanity
someone needs to do a 5150 on her, for her own good
maybe the good doctors can figure out how to help her?
WE believe in the ‘rule of law’ and the speech copy was government property. She broke the law. Investigate her for the next 5 years - and everyone she knows.
It was premeditated all the way.
Even her father guest that was thrown out of the chamber.
She’s a real POS.
two words for you San Fran Nan
