Her supporters are praising House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for the seemingly condescending manner in which she applauded President Trump during Tuesday’s State of the Union address.
Among similar articles from outlets like The New York Times, The Washington Post posted an article titled, “The exquisite shade of Nancy Pelosi’s applause at the State of the Union.”
“This was a derogatory clap, make no mistake. This was mockery wearing a half-baked costume of politeness,” the Post wrote. “Her lips mostly remained either pursed or puckered, as if the entire speech was a bit of gristle that must be endured before it could be discreetly spit into a napkin.”
