Soooo Smug...

"Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic speaker of the House of Representatives, had ripped up Trump's state of the union speech after he refused to shake her hand, which I thought was a brilliant gesture. The next day, he was acquitted in his impeachment trial, so here I have him smugly ripping up those documents. After the news, many said his chances of re-election were at their highest level since he entered the White House - just look how that went."
