    Unfortunately MAGA is being disrespected repeatedly by speaker Pelosi today, time after time VP Pence stands up and claps but Pelosi keeps sitting looking hither and thither.
    POTUS office should be respeced espcially at SOTU, there are 364 other days to raise partisan objections, praying for health of POTUS under the guise of questioning his mental health, finding fault with globalist Deep neocons donors etc.


    2020 SOTU Diss:



    Don't think any POTUS in history has faced such disrespect as MAGA did today.

    Pelosi rips up Trump speech at conclusion of State of the Union


    Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday ripped up her copy of President Trump's prepared remarks at the conclusion of his State of the Union address.

    This is a sad day for all of us and not just a big diss for Deep Neocons/globalists who funded MAGA 2016 election.

    What a bunch of nonsense from Gov. Whitmer, who is giving her first presidential campaign speech for 2024.

    Edit: there is something extremely annoying about her speaking style. It’s more than just the nonsense she is spewing. She’s like a teacher lecturing you, but you know she is an idiot.

    Every single Dem are now pushing Medicare for all, new programs, green new deal and God knows what else. I would love to see how they pay for it.

    Bad move on his part, but I doubt it had anything to do with her behavior. Most of the Democrats were just as disrespectful, or moreso.

    It started when Reagan invited Lenny Skutnik to attend, after he jumped into the icy Potomac River to rescue the victim of an air crash who was about to drown. It was caught on video - which was a much less common occurrence back then - and he was a national hero. (1982)

    Apparently, now all such guests are referred to as "Lenny Sputniks". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Lenny_Skutniks

    Yeah, I was thinking it might have been Reagan, but it was really expanded by Clinton. Now it’s just ridiculous.

    Saw the replay. He put the speech directly into her right hand, and then turned around before she could switch hands and extent her right hand. Plausible deniability by Trump.

    If it pops before the election then we might get President Sanders.

    Nancy Pelosi is a disgraceful woman. Look at the dignity of the families in attendance. A 3yo boy, up way past his bedtime, behaved better than the Speaker of the US House of Representatives.

    Various studies, Koch brothers, CBO, and others estimate that over 10 years a medicare for all would cost roughly the same, if not cheaper, than americans are projected to pay out of pocket for private insurance. The argument is expand coverage by 30-40 million people while spending the same.

    That's the theory at least. How anyone can put a firm dollar amount on changing an entire industry is anyone's guess.

    Of course the insurance lobby is immensely powerful so we'll most likely get laws that benefit them the most.

    It won't take very long to get them home but it won't be overnight either but Iraq says they can't stay and they are coming home just like Trump said.
