Pelosi Clapping Meme

President Donald Trump spoke for more than an hour and 20 minutes last night, but the moment that may be remembered best from his State of the Union address had no words at all.

It was when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) stood and applauded a line from Trump’s speech in a way that seemed rife with sarcasm to many observers.

The moment came after an eyebrow-raising call for unity from Trump that seemed at direct odds with his own long history of Twitter insults, especially coming on the heels of a pre-speech luncheon in which he reportedly insulted multiple political rivals.

“We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise and the common good,” Trump said in his State of the Union address.

Pelosi then stood and clapped:

No need to say people made a mem of Pelosi clapping that went viral soon:

While Trump spoke for over an hour, Pelosi’s clap will probably be talked about for years to come.

Many women wore white to the State of the Union address

President Trump’s State of the Union address was flooded with the color white. The bold statement, initiated by the House Democratic Women’s Working Group, saw dozens of lawmakers coordinate their attire as a show of solidarity among women.

Even Trump’s daughter Tiffany was pictured in white, with social media speculating that the choice may have been more than a coincidence.

In particular, the color is associated with the suffragette movement. Early advocates for women’s voting rights wore white as a symbol of purity, often alongside purple for dignity and green for hope.

Women in the U.S. House chamber celebrate after Trump points out that the majority of newly created jobs were filled by women.

Melania Trump arrives solo, again

First lady Melania Trump, who hasn’t been seen in public for an official engagement since just after Christmas, returned to the spotlight Tuesday night for the State of the Union speech – and for a second year in a row she took a separate car to the Capitol.

The first lady left the White House early and ahead of President Donald Trump after hosting a reception in the Diplomatic Room for their special guests invited to sit with her in the House gallery during the speech.

Trump also traveled separately to the Capitol last year so she could spend more time with the guests. And, as she did last year, she also hosted another meet-and-greet with them at the Capitol.

 February meeting with Kim Jong-un

During Tuesday’s State of the Union address, US President Trump revealed a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will take place on February 27th and 28th in Vietnam. Trump said his presidency and “good” relationship with the reclusive state’s leader helped the United States to avoid a “major war” with North Korea.

“If I had not been elected President of the United States, we would right now, in my opinion, be in a major war with North Korea,” the President said.
