Mark Sidney| OPINION| It’s starting to look like Queen Nancy, or as you may know her, Ol’ Iron Liver, is coming to the realization that her childish act of ripping up Trump’s speech during the closing of the State of the Union, was a very, very bad idea.
A bad idea for Democrats, but the gift of a lifetime for Trump and his army of reform demanding American citizens.
As we reported yesterday, Turning Point USA posted a powerful video meme which juxtaposed the video of Pelosi ripping up Trump’s speech following him delivering it, with the footage of the American heroes which Trump honored at the State of the Union.
Even President Trump Tweeted out the meme video under the title of ‘Powerful American Stories RIPPED To Shreds By Nancy Pelosi.’
Take a look for yourself (and be sure to share the crap out of this) below:

Now, Tyrant Pelosi’s team was demanded Facebook and Twitter take down the video, making the claim that it was ‘doctored’ … because, as you know, the Dems care of so much about the 1st Amendment … or the 2nd … or the 4th …. noticing a trend here?
The Gateway Pundit explained: ‘Pelosi pre-ripped the speech as Trump mentioned Rush Limbaugh’s lung cancer diagnosis, proving she pre-planned the theatrical stunt.
Pelosi is an evil, calculating, witch and lashed out at reporters who suggested her ripping up the SOTU speech backfired.
The tyrant then demanded the video be taken down.’
The Hill quoted Pelosi’s spokesman, Drew Hammill, concerning the demand that the devastating video be purged from the platform.
“Hammill said Pelosi’s office has asked both Twitter and Facebook to take down the video.”
Now, you know me, I’m the biggest critic of Facebook there is.
However, I think we need to be fair when they get something right. And in this instance, that is exactly what they did when they told Pelosi to go have another round at the local martini bar. The video is staying up.
Both Facebook and Twitter decided against removing the Trump video, although the companies cited different reasons for their decisions.
Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesman, replied to Hammill on Twitter: “Sorry, are you suggesting the President didn’t make those remarks and the Speaker didn’t rip the speech?”
Hammill fired back: “What planet are you living on? This is deceptively altered. Take it down.”
In the end, both Facebook and Twitter declined to remove the Trump campaign post, citing corporate policies.
Facebook’s Stone told CNBC, “I can confirm for you that the video doesn’t violate our policies.”
Nice to see the speech cartel standing up to the political cartel.
However, do not hold your breath that this will be the new normal …
