PRESIDENT OF HIS OWN PARTY. >>> A STANDOUT MOTEL AT LAST NIGHT’S STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESSED PRESIDENT TRUMP SEEMINGLY IGNORED NANCY PELOSI’S HAND STRETCHED OUT FOR A HAND SHAG. PELOSI RIPPING A PRINTOUT OF HIS SPEECH AFTER THE ADDRESS. THOSE MOMENTS WENT VIRAL. MORE THAN THAT, THEY HIGH FLIGHT LONG RUNNING AND INCREASINGLY BITTER FEUD BETWEEN TWO LEADERS. NANCY PELOSI IS FROM SAN FRANCISCO AND HER DAUGHTER KRISTINE PELOSI IS HERE. >> THANKS. SO YOU’RE NOT ONLY MADAM SPEAKER’S DAUGHTER. SHE IS ALSO THE CALIFORNIA DEMOCRAT OF THE WE WILL’S CAUCUS CHAIR. WELCOME. >> SO IT WAS THE RIP SEEN AROUND THE WORLD. PELOSI ROCKS, PELOSI THE RIPPER, PELOSI TANTRUM. YOU KNOW HER BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE.

WERE YOU SURPRISED? DID SHE PLAN THAT? >> NO. I WASN’T REALLY SURPRISED AND NO, SHE DIDN’T PLAN IT. WHAT HAPPENED WAS THE STATE OF THE UNION BEGAN. THE PRESIDENT REFUSED HER OUTSTRETCHED HAND AND THEN HE PROCEEDED TO GIVE A SPEECH WHICH WAS REALLY AN ELECTION SPEECH TO THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND NOT A SPEECH TO THE NATION OUTLINING THE BUDGET AS A STATE OF OUR VALUES AND WAYS THAT WE CAN COME TOGETHER AS AMERICANS. AND WITH LIE AFTER LIE, WHAT SHE LATER CALLED A MANIFESTO OF MISTRUTHS, FINALLY, WHEN IT WAS OVER, SHE SIMPLY BACK TO THREE SECONDS TO VERY SILENTLY DO WITH THE SPEECH WHAT SHE THOUGHT IT WAS NECESSARY TO DO AFTER HE HAD TORN UP THE CONSTITUTION AND SHREDDED THE TRUTH. SHE DECIDED TO TEAR UP THE SPEECH. >> YOU SAID IT IS IN KEEPING WITH HER TAL YANDLE GRANDMOTHER’S, HER ITALIAN GRANDMOTHER’S STATUS. >> I TOLD BUT MY BOOK, THE NANCY PELOSI WAY. SHE WAS RAISE IN THE BALTIMORE SXHIFLT GRANDMOTHER, HER MOTHER, WAS THE STRONG MATRIARCH OF THE FAMILY. WHEN I WAS IN COLLEGE, I WENT TO MY GRAND PARENTS’ HOME AND THERE WAS A GUEST DISRESPECTING MY GRANDFATHER.

AT ONE POINT MY GRANDMOTHER WENT INTO THE KITCHEN. WE HEARD A CRASHING SOUND. SHE CAME BACK SILENTLY AND SAT DOWN LATER, WE REALIZED SHE HAD BROKEN THAT PERSON’S PLATE IN HALF AND PUT IT IN THE TRASH. SHE NEVER SAID ANYTHING. SHE JUST DID IT. SO WHEN I SAW MY MOM DO THAT, I THOUGHT THAT’S THE ITALIAN GRANDMA MOVE. >> WE’VE CERTAINLY SEEN YOUR MOTHER MAKE HER FEELINGS KNOWN. THERE WAS LAST YEAR IN THE STATE OF THE UNION WHEN SHE HAD THAT CLAP FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. AND THEN IN OCTOBER WHEN SHE STOOD UP IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE CABINET, POINTING HER FINGER OUT OF HIM.

NOW THIS. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THE FOLKS, HEY, WHEN THEY GO LOW, WE GO HIGH? WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT? >> THIS IS WHEN THEY GO LOW, WE CALL THEY WILL OUT FOR BEING LOW AND ASK THEM ON RISE TO THE OCCASION. YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE ENTIRE COUNTRY. AND AGAIN, LET’S LOOK WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW.

WE ARE ABOUT TO PUT FORWARD A BUDGET. A BUDGET THAT IS A STATEMENT OF OUR VALUES. WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL AND THE PARTISAN ACQUITTAL WITH THE XEGS OF ROMNEY ROPP, YOU’RE SEEING A CALL FOR CLOSER EXAMINATION. WE EXPECT IT TO BE SPENT. WE DON’T EXPECT IT TO BE USED FOR PARTISAN PURPOSE. FOR TRUMP, THE ELECTION STARTED LAST NIGHT. FOR EVERYONE ELSE IN THE CONGRESS, THEY HAVE A 84 OF WORKING TOGETHER TO TRY TO GET A BUDGET DONE.

>> NO MATTER WHAT, THE PRESIDENT GETS TO SAY HE WAS XOEXONERATED. I KNOW WHEN YOU AND YOUR MOM GET TOGETHER, WOULD YOU SAY THIS WAS ALL WORTH IT? >> THE CONSTITUTION IS ALWAYS WORTH IT. AS ADAM SCHIFF SAID IN HIS BEAUTIFUL CLOSING ARGUMENT, IT IS WORTH IF NOTHING ELSE WATCHING THE LAST TWO MINUTES OF IT. OF COURSE OUR DEMOCRACY IS WORTH IT. IF ALL OF THESE CAREER CIVIL SERVANTS WHO CAME FORWARD AND SAID, THIS IS NOT THE WAY THAT A DEMOCRACY SHOULD OPERATE.

NOT FOR THE WHIMS OF AN INDIVIDUAL OR POLITICAL PARTY BUT FOR THE GOOD OF THE PEOPLE. OF COURSE IT MATTERS. OF COURSE IT MATTERS TO SHINE A LIGHT ON THAT. HE WILL BE IMPEACHED FOR LIFE. AND HOPEFULLY, WE’LL BE MORE AWARE FOR LIFE OF WHAT IS RIGHT .
