Fifteen minutes or less, into the State of the Union address from President Donald J. Trump, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi started flipping through the large written pages of the address — being a huge distraction, by design, to those who wanted to watch and hear our president.

I ask Congress and the president to change policy by not handing out written copies of the address to anyone until after the address is completed, and let it be known! What a distraction and disgrace!

News footage also showed the speaker of the House tearing up the address the president handed to her. What a terrible example of behavior for our young entrepreneurs watching! If you can’t handle the pressure, you need to move on and allow someone else better than you to set the example and be proud to show human compassion regardless of your beliefs.
