Nancy Pelosi is not done trolling Trump

Even before Trump uttered the first word of his State of the Union speech, there was clear tension between the president and the House Speaker who has been leading his impeachment.

As he began the speech, Republicans from both houses of Congress chanted "four more years" while he stood at the lectern in the chamber of the House with a presidential election nearly exactly nine months away. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi tweeted with a group photo before the address.

The lack of communication between Trump and Pelosi is especially striking given the high-profile events that have taken place since that time, including the killing of top Iranian commander Qasem Soleimani and ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. "But Jim [Jordan] is exactly right".

President Donald Trump delivers his State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, February 4, 2020. "The president showed us what we are about".

He called the speech the greatest State of the Union to be given in the House chamber. The mourning families of Rocky Jones and Kayla Mueller.

Trump never mentioned the subject of his impeachment in his speech. When asked by an ABC News reporter why she did so, Pelosi replied "It was such a dirty speech". Ted Cruz, R-Texas, called Pelosi's actions "disgraceful" and "disgusting", saying they made him "angry".
