House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) speculated that President Donald Trump seemed “sedated” during his State of the Union address on Tuesday.
Pelosi said that his address seemed more like a speech about his personal “state of mind” rather than a “state of the union”
“I say to my members all the time there’s no such thing as personal animosity,” Pelosi said. “There are eternal friendships but you never know on what cause you may come together with somebody you may have perceived as your foe right now. Everybody is a possible ally in whatever comes next. They want us always to remember we were one and they, our founders, had their differences, as do we. I extended a hand of friendship to him, to welcome him as the president of the United States, to the people’s House. It was also an act of kindness because he looked to me like he was a little sedated. He looked that way last year, too. He didn’t want to shake hands.”
However, she said that tearing up the speech had nothing to do with the president refusing to shake her hand. She claimed she’s a speed reader and knew what was coming.
She called the address more about the state of him personally, not the state of where America was and where Trump wanted it to go. It was all about him and his “state of mind,” she said. So, Pelosi said she shredded his “state of mind” address.

Sanders hits Bloomberg with ‘grotesque’ statistic: Billionaire owns more wealth than bottom 125 million Americans combined
"That's wrong. That's immoral. That should not be the case when we got half a million people sleeping out on the street."
On the Democratic presidential debate stage in Las Vegas Wednesday night, Sen. Bernie Sanders cited a striking statistic to show just how "grotesque" billionaire businessman Michael Bloomberg's level of wealth is, particularly in a nation struggling to combat homelessness, the student debt crisis, and other major issues.
MSNBC’s Morning Joe shreds Bloomberg for flunking ‘politics 101’ in first debate
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough buried Mike Bloomberg's first presidential debate performance, and thumped big-name Democrats who saw him as the party's political savior.
The "Morning Joe" host said the billionaire and former New York City mayor seemed terribly unprepared for the attacks against his lengthy business and political record, and Scarborough said Bloomberg failed at the most basic skills.
"I think for Democratic professionals who saw this guy as their political savior to save them from Bernie Sanders, they had to be disappointed last night because he was bad in politics 101," Scarborough said. "They'll forgive a candidate that can beat Donald Trump for just about anything, but you're right, it's called a pivot."
