....no not that clap [ he wishes ]....but a 'clap back'.....


The 'Pelosi Clap,' standing ovations and that wonky tie: The world reacts to Trump's State of the Union

•Twitter users seized upon some memorable moments during the speech.
•Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Trump's wonky red tie and Tiffany Trump's outfit all caused a stir.
•Democratic congresswomen led one standing ovation.

..........President Donald Trump's 2019 State of the Union address got the world talking with social media reacting to key takeaways and memorable moments during the speech.

Trump announced a second North Korea summit for the end of February and re-affirmed his commitment to building a border wall. He also called for an end to investigations into his administration and for bipartisan cooperation.

Soon enough, Twitter was ablaze with comments about the speech. But, as ever, the public was quickly picking up on the minutiae, including the president's "wildly crooked tie" and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's paper shuffling.

Trump also talked about the economic recovery in the U.S., prompting various chants of "USA USA," and said the only things that could stop it were "foolish wars, politics, or ridiculous partisan investigations."

He wasn't specific, but his words were taken to mean the inquiries launched by Democrats into the Trump administration and the ongoing investigation into Russian election meddling and possible collusion with the campaign, which both Russia and Trump deny.

That prompted a wry smile from Democrat Pelosi, who was sitting behind Trump and next to Vice President Mike Pence.

In fact, throughout the address, Pelosi's facial expressions and reactions (which were, as Trump's political rival, naturally negative ones) were widely seized upon by viewers. But it was her seemingly mocking applause at the end of Trump's speech that prompted a Twitter storm, with the "Pelosi clap" quickly trending and becoming a meme.

My favorite meme can't be posted here.

It read: Congratulations to Nancy Pelosi for inventing the "censored smiley You" clap.

Would have been great if she just had a sign that said "This is a lie" every time he trumpeted one!
