Donald Trump just finished his first speech in front of Congress as President, and the partisan divide in the audience couldn’t have been any clearer.
Rare were there lines from Trump that garnered from applause from both parties. A number of Democrats were on their cell phones (are they high schoolers?), and they couldn’t leave the chamber fast enough when the speech was over.
Just two days prior to the speech Trump blasted Pelosi, saying “I’ve been watching Nancy’s tape, and so I think she’s incompetent, actually,” he told the hosts. “You know, if you look at what’s going on with the Democrats and the party, it’s getting smaller and smaller.”
That was clear in Pelosi’s mind last night, who looked like someone has opened the Ark of the Covenant in front of her when Trump began talking about job creation.
How bizarre is that?
As everyone around her applauded in response to Trump announced businesses investing tens of billions into the U.S. creating tens of thousands of jobs, that bizarre face was her reaction. Is she pretending that it’s a bad thing because Trump is running the show?
The white pantsuit she was wearing by the way was an act of protest.

The move is a nod to the women’s suffrage movement, which encouraged followers to dress in white as a symbol of purity. Hillary Clinton was known for the hideous pantsuits she wore during her campaign for President, hence the decision to wear a white pantsuit.
It sounds like they still can’t get over the fact that they lost. If there’s a time to wear a white pantsuit, it’s when there is a female President in charge. And who knows if the first female President will be a Democrat – there were just as many women running for President last election as there were men on both tickets.
