The Jury Talks Back


Trump Supporters Pretend to Be Aghast at Pelosi Ripping Up the State of the Union Speech

Filed under: Uncategorized — Patterico @ 8:51 am

“Oh my God, this is the most classless act ever!!!!1!” say the people who don’t find Donald J. Trump’s actions classless at all:

Pelosi’s action was both understandable after Trump refused to shake her hand at the beginning of the evening, and snitty and petulant and weak.

That said, Ian Miles Cheong is a Trump supporter. I cannot take a Trump supporter seriously when they whine about classless acts by Democrats, since I know that if Trump did the same thing they would applaud and cheer.

As an aside: in the Trump era, any particular thing that happens today must be the biggest worstest mostest thing that has ever happened in the history of the universe. Sure, Representative Preston Brooks brutally beat Senator Charles Sumner on the head with a cane on the floor of the Senate, but yeah, this was the most classless act evah!

More degradation of our politics in the Trump era.


  1. Juveniles on both sides of the aisle, and this is what the voters either fervently support, or tolerate without seeing much wrong. Maybe living in the Idiocracy is the new normal.

  2. It was nothing but show and games. Unfortunately I have become quite discouraged about our government and in a broader sense society as a whole due to the blatant hypocrisy and people’s inability to have even a small sense of decency. It might even border on apathy these days.

    I found it sad that good and positive events and the achievement of individuals could not be honored and celebrated simply because of the person recognizing them.

    And I find it disturbing that our president can’t seem to speak of anything without using hyperbole.
