Pelosi Says Trump Looked Drugged Up At SOTU


On Tuesday evening, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) proceeded to tear the president’s State of the Union address in half, explaining later that his speech had nothing to do with “the state of the union” and more to do with “state of mind.” She called Mr. Trump’s speech a “manifesto of mistruths.”

Pelosi did extend her hand to shake Mr. Trump’s hand but he seemed to decline her gesture. She also pointed out that he “looked a little bit sedated.” At her weekly press conference on Thursday morning, Pelosi said:

‘It was also an act of kindness because he looked to me like he was a little bit sedated. He looked that way last year, too. But that was that. He didn’t want to shake hands? That meant nothing to me.’

On Tuesday evening, she tweeted out the image of her attempt to shake Trump’s hand, saying:

Rep. Pelosi also fact checked Trump’s speech on Tuesday night, especially his comment about inheriting an economic “mess” from former President Barack Obama. She said:

‘When President Obama came into office, the unemployment rate was 10 percent. When he left, it was 5 percent. So President Trump did not inherit a mess – he inherited a momentum.’
