Nancy Pelosi is calling on Facebook and Twitter to remove a video that shows her repeatedly tearing Trump’s SOTU speech, arguing its misleading.
While the video is not in chronological order, campaign videos and videos in general arrange clips in different order for artistic and create effect.
If videos has to be in exact chronological order or be taken down, millions of videos would have to be taken down given those ridiculous standards.
BPR reports a slew of Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have begun demanding that Facebook and Twitter censor a meme video that they find offensive.
Reportedly produced by Turning Point USA and later tweeted by the president himself, the meme juxtaposes the infamous clip of the House speaker ripping up President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address with clips of the president paying tribute to several extraordinary Americans, including one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen.

After the president posted the meme early Thursday evening, Democrats began shrieking that it’s “misleading” and must be removed from social media.
“Pelosi’s office has asked both Twitter and Facebook to take down the video,” The Hill reported after receiving confirmation from the speaker’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill.
The American people know that the President has no qualms about lying to them – but it is a shame to see Twitter and Facebook, sources of news for millions, do the same. https://t.co/OatHIOamsD

This video is doctored. It has been up, and pinned to the President's page, for nearly a day.
Trump posted it to deceive Americans about @SpeakerPelosi's actions and record.
