President Donald Trump completely disregarded Nancy Pelosi as he walked to start his State of the Union speech on Tuesday. She reached out to offer him a handshake, and ignored her...and it was GREAT.
As Nancy took a copy of Trump's speech and reached out, he simply turned and walked away.
To be fair though, I don't blame the president! Pelosi did everything in her power to remove him from office, which included lying about him and saying many nasty things. I would have done the same thing!

Trump started setting out his case for re-election in November Tuesday night, using the pomp and ceremony of his State of the Union address to boast he has created a 'Great American Comeback' and ignore the Democrats' impeachment then scorn their policies as 'socialism.'
He strode to the front of Congress knowing that he will be acquitted by the Republican Senate within less than 24 hours, and boosted by a 49% approval rating in a Gallup poll.
'Three years ago, we launched the Great American Comeback. Tonight, I stand before you to share the incredible results," Trump said.
"In just three short years, we have shattered the mentality of American decline and we have rejected the downsizing of America's destiny. We are moving forward at a pace that was unimaginable just a short time ago, and we are never going back!" He continued, 'The vision I will lay out this evening demonstrates how we are building the world's most prosperous and inclusive society – one where every citizen can join in America's unparalleled success, and where every community can take part in America's extraordinary rise.'
The tub-thumping opening was setting the tone for a night when Trump was making a case for a November victory after defeating impeachment and as the Democrats running to take him on reel from a chaotic Iowa caucus.
He was skating over mixed economic results – growth has never reached his 3% target, and manufacturing jobs are back in decline – to boast of the centerpieces of his policies: replacing NAFTA with the USMCA, spending big on the military and tough action on immigration.
Trump also went out of his way to try to defuse the Democrats' most potent attack, saying of healthcare: 'We will always protect patients with pre-existing conditions.'
The president added, "We will never let socialism destroy American healthcare."

Jeb Bush Gets ATTACKED for What He Said About Super Bowl Half Time Show
Even though I'm a big football fan, I must admit that I didn't watch the Super Bowl on Sunday night, at least not all of it.
I did happen to catch about half of the last quarter to see how the game would end because the ends of football games can always go in any direction. Just think back to the Patriots and Falcons Super Bowl a few years ago. Plus, I've seen how the Chiefs have been playing lately and I thought that even though they were down, that they might make one heck of a comeback...I was right. Continue reading...
