Speaker Nancy Pelosi had to be well aware that her body language and reactions to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech Tuesday night. And while she received some criticism for reading the text of the speech, and some praise for quieting some vocal frustration from her Democratic caucus, it was a very specific, and perhaps sarcastic, clap back directed towards the commander in chief that appears to have captured the attention of visitors of the World Wide Web. The moment in question came just after President Trump proclaimed “we must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good.” While Pelosi has thus far avoided the dreaded dismissive nickname that Trump is known for, she is well aware of how the president is well known for his own vengeful rhetoric. Or it appears that’s what her “thought bubble” during this piqued moment, which you can see below.
And like that, a meme was born:
Who knew clapping could convey rage, disdain and threats of revenge… pic.twitter.com/u9c4lXM4ri— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) February 6, 2019
“Her lips mostly remained either pursed or puckered, as if the entire speech was a bit of gristle that must be endured before it could be discreetly spit into a napkin.”https://t.co/lcs8WMpIu3 — Ben Terris (@bterris) February 6, 2019
