Trump Blasts Pelosi for 'Mumbling Terribly' Behind Him at SOTU: 'Very Distracting'
'Mumbling. Mumbling. Rawr. Rawr. Rawr,' Trump told the crowd
President Donald Trump recalled the moment Nancy Pelosi began 'mumbling' during last week's State of the Union Address, telling the crowd at his Monday night rally in Manchester, New Hampshire about how “distracting” the House Speaker was sitting behind him.
“On Tuesday, I delivered my address on the state of the union,” Trump said to loud cheers.
“And I had somebody behind me who was mumbling terribly," he added.
"Mumbling. Mumbling. Rawr. Rawr. Rawr."
"Oh. Ha. She was mumbling. Very distracting. Very distracting.”
Chants of “Lock her up" followed Trump's words.
“You know, it was very distracting,” Trump said.
“I’m speaking, and a woman is mumbling terribly behind me. Angry. There was a little anger back there.”
“We’re the ones who should be angry, not them,” he continued.
“We’re the ones who should be angry, but we proudly declared that we are in the midst of the great American comeback," he added.
"Our country is stronger today than ever before.”
Trump's claims were backed up by Vice President Mike Pence, who said at Pelosi was “muttering” to him and “making some complaints" throughout the speech.

On Monday, Trump predicted Pelosi would “lose the House, again” following her tantrum and the Democrat's impeachment hoax.
Trump noted “how badly” top Democrats handled impeachment, and also predicted many of them losing their seats to “far-left” primary challengers like democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Meanwhile, calls began to mount for the House Speaker to resign.
A prominent Democrat law professor and top congressman have joined calls on Pelosi to stand down over her conduct during the conclusion of President Trump’s SOTU address.
As the president finished his speech and the chamber stood to applaud him, Pelosi ripped up a text copy of the speech during the event that was televised nationally and live-streamed around the world.
Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) responded to Pelosi's speech-ripping stunt by writing:
“Nancy Pelosi should step down as Speaker."
"I’m confident that the American public will be directly sending her that message themselves later this year if she doesn’t read the tea leaves herself and resign on her own terms today."
"It’s time," the congressman added.
