WATCH: Pelosi Snaps After Reporter Asks if Tearing Up Speech Was Undignified

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi appeared to snap at reporter Manu Raju when he asked if she had stepped on the message of having dignity and high ground by tearing up President Trump’s state of the Union speech.

A visibly agitated Pelosi appeared to take the question personally and snapped.

Nancy Pelosi:

I tore up a manifesto of mistruths….it’s very hard to get you to talk about the issues we are working on. HR3, infrastructure and the rest. He misrepresented all of that. It’s necessary to get the attention of the American people to say this is not true and this is how it effects you. 

I don’t need any lessons from anybody, especially the president of the United States, about dignity.

Dignity. Is it okay to start saying four more years in the House of Representatives? It’s just unheard of.

It is unheard of for the president to insult people there who don’t share his view, as well as to misrepresent—present falsehoods, some would use the word lie, I don’t like to use the word lie, about what he was saying.

So no, I think was completely and entirely appropriate and considering some of the other exuberances within me, the courteous thing to do.
