Trump Sticks it to Pelosi Morning After Acquittal

A rightfully jubilant Donald Trump took a major dig at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi by holding up a newspaper emblazoned with the headline, “ACQUITTED,” at the White House prayer breakfast the morning after the president’s historic exoneration.

The president brandished the headlines mere feet from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., after both arrived at the breakfast.

In front of his first audience since being acquitted on Wednesday, Trump first picked up a USA Today newspaper and presented it before the group. He then put it down and picked up a copy of Thursday’s Washington Post, which had a similar headline.

He later addressed the audience and took some not-so-subtle swipes at Pelosi once more.

“I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong, nor do I like people who say ‘I pray for you’ when you know that is not so,” he said. Pelosi had publicly said during the impeachment process that she and fellow Democrats were “prayerful” and that she prays for the president.

Trump also called impeachment a “terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people.”

For Trump, the moment was payback not only for impeachment but her conduct at the close of Tuesday’s State of the Union address.

Following his speech, Pelosi tore up the pages of the speech in full view of the cameras, shocking lawmakers.

The Senate, meanwhile, on Wednesday acquitted Trump on both articles of impeachment against him—abuse of power and obstruction of Congress—following a weeks-long trial.

    I’m tired of and annoyed at speakers referring to Trump as “ impeached” when, in fact, he was NOT impeached but acquitted. Latest news comment I heard was the inaccurate: “This is the first time an impeached president is running for re-election.” Sour grapes you damn Demorats (spelled that way intentionally in spite of automatic spell correction that keeps trying to correct it).

      I recall the look on her face when she took the gavel from Speaker John Boehner and it will be great to see her face when she hands over the gavel to a Republican after the 2020 election.

    Let’s leave the obvious HATE aside, and deal with the facts – not the Democrat and Mainstream Media talking points
    • The House has the SOLE responsibility to investigate and present the case to the Senate
    • The Senate has the SOLE responsibility to judge the evidence presented by the House (prosecutors) and Defense Team
    • Senators have an opportunity, but not a requirement to ask questions. However, most politicians would
    • There is no requirement or obligation for the Senate to conduct additional investigations, that is the SOLE responsibility of the House

    As in every trial, prosecutors cannot hold back any evidence discovered during their investigation. However, there is the 18th witness, Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community’s inspector general who has firsthand knowledge of the origins of the whistleblower complaint that led to the impeachment – However, Members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence who conducted the interview are barred from disclosing details. But Republicans on the committee said the testimony should be heard at the president’s impeachment trial in the Senate.

    The potentially exculpatory evidence for Mr. Trump has remained classified and is not part of the record for the impeachment trial.

    ‘Obstruction of Congress’ is not a crime – based on this standard, every single President would be guilty just by using the Constitutional Right of Executive Privilege – Separation of the Powers – Three Branches of Government.

    I would like to see the tax payers paid back for the WASTE the Democrats just put us through. There has been nothing productive on their part for weeks (maybe months)except their agenda to hate Donald Trump. How can you vote for people with so much hate, but then again, they are all about just giving money away.

    in my opinion, i think Pelosi should be in jail for ripping up President Trump’s speech. i read on the computer that for what she did it says in the constitution that a person should serve the 3 years. i really hope this is true and that she is behind bars very shortly. She is an evil woman. i am glad that President Trump rubbed it in at the prayer breakfast. she deserves everything she gets and more.

    Polosi is nothing but a loud mouth dirt bag.
    She will be voted out on her next election. She won’t even clean up her own town, a career criminal that should be let out to pasture. Robbed the tax payers blind, thinks she has “power”, she has no dignity or class.

    ACCOLADES, ACCLAIM, APPLAUSE FOR HON. PRESIDENT TRUMP!

    Pelosi should be removed as Speaker for her poor sportsmanship, as well as, the partisan impeachment orchestration, by betrayal of the nonpartisan oath of the Speakership and abuse of power.

    I love Pelosi. I love Pelosi. I…something Pelosi. I…Pel???. I don’t really remember. Something about some reporter? Maybe something about a person who makes paper? Or was it someone who destroys paper. Hmmm. I am pretty sure it is about a homeless person who takes your recycled paper packs and rips them up scattering them on the road. Yeah. That’s it. Who was the person? I don’t know. It doesn’t matter.

    When are they gonna take the House Speaker, just don’t like her name, to court for destroying government documents? Hillary Clinton destroyed worse but our President at that time gave her immunity and she played stupid, maybe she is just that, and got out of the whole ordeal. Please President Trump, get rid of these idiots that are only there to drain our country!

    Pelosi needs to be removed from her position as House Speaker immediately. She’s done everything she can to make a complete mockery of herself and wasting the taxpayers money.

    The democRATS could not come up with an instance were Trump abused his power and as for obstruction of congress any president worth his salt will have times that what he says to someone has to be kept to himself and the person he was talking to, otherwise he may as well do like killey did put it on a non secure e-mail server for the whole world to see

    The senate, after nancy ripped the speech in half, was surely going to vote in favor of the President.
    Transparency is our best defense against these people.
    They have been in the darkest corners of the government for decades,
    I know for a fact there’s going to be more discoveries of the corruption which is still hidden. What else would drive educated
    people to fight so hard like they have done.
    I call them educated, but what does this actually say about them. It says they are desperate.

    And then Trump picked up a knife and said “Knife to know you.” And then he picked up a fork and said, “Fork you, Nancy! Then he picked up a pancake and ripped it in two. My gosh, what a childish man! The National Prayer Breakfast is NOT the place for such moves, but our buffoonish president doesn’t know any better. Pelosi was non-plussed: She’s 10 times as strong as Trump is. Trump is weak, scared, desperate and cowardly! That’s why we saw such behavior from him Wednesday morning. More frightened lashing-out! He’s in his death throes!

    For Pelosi to rip up the Presidents speech was a demonstration of disdain and disrespect for the President and his office. There was nothing prayerful about that whatsoever. Roman’s 13;1-7 states, “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor.” Notice how swiftly judgement has fallen on the Vidmans…I fear for Schiff and Pelosi.

    Pelosi is a disgraced to the House of Representative and the United States of America; she should be removed on this respectable chamber of the house of representative.
