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.

Prosecutor spills details about Bill Barr’s ‘unprecedented, unnecessary and unexplained’ efforts to oust him
Geoffrey Berman, the man who until recently served as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, told members of Congress on Thursday about Attorney General Bill Barr's "unprecedented, unnecessary and unexplained" efforts to oust him.
In testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Berman explained how Barr contacted him and repeatedly pressed him to step down from his position at SDNY to take another high-profile position within the government.
Berman, however, told Barr that he wanted to stay at his current job until a replacement was nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the United States Senate.
Seoul mayor found dead after ‘#MeToo allegations’
Seoul's outspoken mayor Park Won-soon, long seen as a potential South Korean presidential candidate, was found dead, police said Friday. He was 64.
A former Seoul City employee filed a police complaint -- allegedly involving sexual harassment -- against him on Wednesday.
Park's body was found on a mountain in northern Seoul, police said, hours after hundreds of officers started searching for him.
If Park does prove to have killed himself he would be the highest-profile South Korean politician to do so since former president Roh Moo-hyun, who jumped off a cliff in 2009 after being questioned over corruption allegations involving family members.
