Nancy Pelosi sparks meme frenzy during State of the Union

He looked out on the largest contingent of women ever assembled in Congress, many of them clad in white to honor the suffragists of the early 20th century. Which sounds great, but is ultimately empty rhetoric when coming from the man who, in the same speech, spoke of a nonexistent "tremendous onslaught" of undocumented immigrants, spoke of Virginia's Democrat governor as supporting the "execution" of babies, and essentially said the Mueller investigation is the biggest threat to the American economy.

"Power grab" is a reference to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

The problem of unfair elections go way beyond Georgia.

When the president delivers the State of the Union, "it is customary for the Speaker of the House to introduce him", according to Time magazine.

"Democrats stand ready to effectively secure our ports and borders".

He said the American people know Mr Trump's economy was "failing our middle class" and the U.S. healthcare system was "failing American families". That brought the Democratic women, many of them dressed in white in solidarity, to their feet for a standing ovation.

She said she is "very disappointed by the President's approach to our problems". "But we need him to tell the truth, and to respect his duties and the extraordinary diversity that defines American", she said.
