Speaker Pelosi ripped the paper the President’s speech was printed on immediately after he finished giving it.
She reportedly tore it up because she believed it “was a manifesto of mistruths.”
“He shredded the truth, so I shredded his speech,” Pelosi is quoted saying.
She also said she felt “liberated” because she felt the speech was so outrageous, CNN reports.
Cameras caught her tearing the speech a total of four times.
