George Washington Law Professor Jonathan Turley said on Wednesday that after her disrespectful actions at the State of the Union address, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi should resign.
In case you missed it, Pelosi ripped up her copy of President Donald Trump's speech due. She claims that he "shredded the truth" so she shredded his speech. However, I think we all know the truth, and that is Pelosi absolutely can't stand the fact that she failed in kicking Trump out of office.
Turley wrote on The Hill:
First, Pelosi dropped the traditional greeting before the start of the address, “Members of Congress, I have the high privilege and distinct honor of presenting to you the president of the United States.” Instead, she simply announced, “Members of Congress, the president of the United States.” It was extremely petty and profoundly inappropriate. Putting aside the fact that this is not her tradition, but that of the House, it is no excuse to note that the president was impeached.
Pelosi has demolished decades of tradition with this poorly considered moment. Of course, many will celebrate her conduct and be thrilled by the insult to Trump. However, even those of us who disagree with his policies should consider what Pelosi destroyed in her moment of rage. She shredded the pretense of governing with civility and dignity in the House. Notably, she did not wait to rip up her copy of the speech until after she left the House floor. Pelosi wanted to do it in front of the cameras, at the end of the address with the president still in the chamber.
That act was more important to Pelosi than preserving the tradition of her office. In doing so, she forfeited the right to occupy that office. If Pelosi cannot maintain the dignity and neutrality of her office at the State of the Union, she should resign as the speaker of the House of Representatives.
I could not agree more!

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…
