Trump supporter rips apart Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer’s photos at Florida rally echoing Speaker at SOTU speech
The woman also held up a picture of California Rep Adam Schiff and ripped it into two pieces. She then held up a sign that read, 'Tampa Loves Melania' in reference to the first lady
During President Donald Trump's Tampa, Florida, rally, a woman was seen mocking Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats. According to The Sun, the woman ripped apart a photo of Nancy Pelosi. After this, she held up a picture of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and proceeded to do the same. She wasn't done yet. The woman held up a picture of California Rep Adam Schiff and ripped it into two pieces. After ripping up the pictures of the three Democratic members of Congress, she held up a sign that read, "Tampa Loves Melania" in reference to the first lady.
In February, Pelosi had done the same to Trump's speech during his State Of The Union address. This move had created quite a ripple at the time. She had told reporters, "It was the courteous thing to do considering the alternatives," Pelosi said. "I tore it up. I was trying to find one page with truth on it. I couldn't. It was such a dirty speech."
House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) tweeted: "How petty of Pelosi. Ripping up a piece of paper doesn't change the facts that were written on it — Americans are winning, in spite of the do-nothing Democrats." He said, "That was disgraceful, it's something that she should not have done. She should apologize for that — I mean the whole country's watching and you've got to be better than that."

Pelosi later tweeted: "The manifesto of mistruths presented in page after page of the address tonight should be a call to action for everyone who expects truth from the President and policies worthy of his office and the American people."

At the Florida rally, Trump had addressed the beheading in France and warned that if his Democrat rival Joe Biden comes to power, more such horrifying attacks will happen in the US. "Biden wants to terminate our travel bans and surge refugees from the most dangerous places in the world," Trump said. "He will open the floodgate to radical Islamic terrorism – and you saw three days ago what happened the beheading in France, and today it happened again." Trump then offered his condolences to France's president, before claiming that similar attacks will happen in the US if Biden wins the election. "And we give our warmest regards to President Macron, a friend of ours, a friend of mine, a friend of the first lady..." he added.
"Under the Biden plan, the horrifying attacks in France will come to our cities and our towns – and I don't want to speak too loudly about this, and I knock on wood," Trump said. He then knocked on the podium where he stood speaking. "This is real wood.... but you know look what's happened," he said, referencing terror attacks in France. "Don't want to say, long time..." he trailed off.
Trump also mentioned Iran, and vowed that if he is victorious on November 3, "they're going to want to make a deal". "We want them to be a great country, but they cannot have a nuclear weapon," Trump said.
