Republicans were livid after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ripped up her copy of Trump's State of the Union address on the House floor immediately after the President's speech.

President Donald Trump delivered his 2020 State of the Union on Tuesday evening, and it was filled with dramatic moments.

From Democratic pushback to Republican chants of "four more years" to surprise reunions and medals of freedom, the typically solemn State of the Union took on the air of a reality television show.

Naturally, the former host of Celebrity Apprentice was right at home—but fewer Americans at home were watching.

Republicans were unfazed by the 31 false statements made by President Donald Trump in his State of the Union address, but they were fuming at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for ripping her copy of Trump's address in half on the House floor.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was among those offended, and tried to troll Pelosi on Twitter.

President Donald Trump gave his State of the Union address to Congress and members of the Supreme Court on Tuesday night.

The speech was rife with some of Trump's most famous lies. He claimed to be working to protect Americans with pre-existing conditions, despite his administration fighting the Affordable Care Act in court. He painted undocumented immigrants as murderous "aliens." He claimed he'd sign a bill to lower prescription drug prices without mentioning the House drug pricing bill currently dying in the Senate.

Trump peppered the speech with made-for-tv moments—scholarship announcements, impromptu medals of freedom, soldiers reuniting with families—intended to please his supporters.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wasn't satisfied with the speech.

The House of Representatives officially impeached President Donald Trump a week before the Christmas holiday.

The trial is expected to head to the Senate, but House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is holding off on delivering the official articles of impeachment to the Republican-dominated Senate until a fair trial can be guaranteed.

Pelosi's apprehension as to whether Senate Republicans will uphold the oath of impartiality the Constitution mandates before the trial of a President isn't without basis.

Senator and steadfast Trump ally Lindsey Graham (R-CA) scoffed at the idea that he'd be considered an impartial juror. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) even said he'd be taking instructions from the White House on how to conduct it.

While concerns for a fair trial no doubt play a part in Pelosi's decision, some Republican strategists are speculating a possible, secondary motive for withholding the articles—and it all comes down to February 4.
