In the aftermath of President Trump’s acquittal on both impeachment content Wednesday and Residence Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-CA) petulant ripping up of President Trump’s State of the Union speech Tuesday, Republican customers of the Home and Senate have been eager to consider victory laps at her cost.
As my RedState colleague Nick Arama wrote past night, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) trolled Pelosi just minutes just after Trump’s acquittal by posting a movie of him (McCarthy) ripping up what have been presumably the impeachment article content and stating “acquitted for life” with a smile on his encounter.
But Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), the chairman of the Republican Study Committee, took a unique technique to paying again Pelosi for all her impeachment endeavours. In a tweet posted not lengthy immediately after Trump was officially acquitted, Johnson observed he was presenting unique gifts to the Republican impeachment protection team “in circumstance Pelosi was as well torn up” to distribute them herself:
Just in circumstance Speaker Pelosi is too torn up to hand out acquittal pens, I went forward and picked some up for our exceptional #impeachment defense workforce. @Jim_Jordan @RepDLesko @RepRatcliffe @RepStefanik @RepMarkMeadows @RepLeeZeldin @RepDougCollins pic.twitter.com/dSybiT6l6d

Johnson’s tweet was a apparent dig not only at Pelosi’s “tearing up” up of the impeachment speech, but also for her passing out souvenir pens in the course of the impeachment resolution signing ceremony past month even though in the midst of putting on the pretense that Trump’s impeachment should be addressed as a “sad and somber” moment in American background.
Johnson’s pen gifts occur a week soon after Trump himself did some pen trolling versus Pelosi by handing out handfuls of them all through the USMCA signing ceremony.
