Nancy Pelosi’s literal clapback is all people are talking about after the SOTU

Speaker Nancy Pelosi stole the show last night at the State of the Union (SOTU) address with a literal clapback.

Donald Trump spoke at the Capitol for an hour and twenty minutes, and Democrats applauded and withheld applause to highlight their differences with the administration.

Then Trump said something that perhaps everyone vaguely agrees with: โ€œWe must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good.โ€

Pelosi applauded that line, but her applause expressed a lot.

Patton Oswalt summed up why the clap was glorious.

After years of Trump bullying people on social media, calling people he disagrees with enemies, and presiding over the longest government shutdown in U.S. history because he was unwilling to compromise, a lot of people loved seeing an acknowledgement that Trump wasnโ€™t even living up to that platitude.

Including Pelosiโ€™s daughter, Christine Pelosi.
