Dr. Alveda King To Pelosi: "It Doesn't Take A Lot To Rip Up A Piece Of Paper" [Video]
Dr. Martin Luther King's niece, Dr. Alveda King has a few choice words for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi after the Speaker ripped up the President's State of The Union speech shortly after he finished giving it.
Dr. King said that Pelosi "can't see the forest through the trees' because madam speaker seems to forget that she isn't the speaker for Democrats but for all Americans.
Let's not forget that IS her job. That's why she sat so close to the President of the United States, otherwise, she would have been on the floor with the rest of Democrats in white. Her disregard for the many people honored in the President's speech proves that she is not fit to hold her seat.
Dr. King, in an interview with Daily Caller, wanted to remind Pelosi that no matter how she feels about the President her childish behavior and political stunt were not welcome at the State of the Union.
“It doesn’t take a lot to tear up a piece of paper, I don’t have to get up out of my seat I don’t have to threaten anybody, if that’s strength, wow,” said King said in disgust to Pelosi's so-called 'protest'.
King went on to explain that it wasn’t just a speech she tore up, but that she was tearing up the touching stories told by Trump about his invited special guests.
Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz filed an ethics complaint against Nancy Pelosi that said the House speaker possibly violated numerous House rules — and maybe even broke the law — by tearing up a copy of President Trump’s State of the Union speech.
The Florida legislator sent a letter to the House Committee on Ethics requesting that it open an investigation and shared the missive on Twitter.
Gaetz wrote that “Speaker Pelosi’s gesture was deeply offensive and appears to violate clauses 1 and 2 of House Rule XXIII,” which dictate the House’s official code of conduct.
