Nancy Pelosi’s daughter called her mom’s tearing of the State of the Union Speech an “Italian Grandma move.” during a recent appearance on Fox News.
New video footage appears to show Nancy Pelosi first pre-ripped the speech papers before tearing them in half at the end, showing the stunt appears to have been planned ahead of time and not spur of the moment.
Fox News reports Democratic strategist Christine Pelosi — daughter of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., weighed in on her mother’s ongoing feud with President Trump after Nancy Pelosi demonstratively ripped up her copy of the president’s speech at the conclusion of his State of the Union address Tuesday.
“I had no idea she was going to do that,” the junior Pelosi told “The Story” Thursday.
“In watching that, her reaction to that speech, I thought to myself, that’s an ‘Italian grandma move,'” Pelosi continued. “I saw my grandmother do that years ago in her kitchen when there was a guest at my grandfather’s house … who was rude. She picked up the person’s plate without comment, we heard a crashing sound. She threw the plate away, sat down and didn’t say another word.”
