(Liberty Bell) – After her completely unhinged behavior at the State of the Union on Tuesday night when she tore up the president’s speech when it was concluded, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi demanded that the social media networks Facebook and Twitter take down memes that the Trump administration had issued about the absurd event.
President Donald Trump tweeted out the video meme, which was called ‘Powerful American Stories RIPPED To Shreds By Nancy Pelosi’ and is a pretty accurate description of what happened.

It wasn’t long before it was determined that Pelosi had actually pre-ripped the speech as Trump spoke of radio legend Rush Limbaugh’s lung cancer diagnosis.
The media was quick to run cover for her, blaming Trump’s apparent rejection of an offer to shake the Speaker’s hand, but obviously, she planned the whole thing nearly an hour before she stood up and defiantly ripped up the historical document.
The Gateway Pundit comments:
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 Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s spokesman, saying that the Speaker had demanded the social networks take the video down.
“Hammill said Pelosi’s office has asked both Twitter and Facebook to take down the video.”
Other Democrat members of Congress also demanded that the “deceptively edited video” be taken down.
Twitter and Facebook, however, have decided to finally stand up to the Democrat establishment, apparently.
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.”
Well, well, well! The tides really are turning.
