US President Trump called for an end to ‘revenge politics’ during his second State of the Union address on Tuesday. However, it was not Trump but someone else who seized all the limelight this time. It was House Speaker and top Democrat Nancy Pelosi, whose seemingly ‘sarcastic’ clap, has now become an internet sensation. Her expression, with stretched arms and raised eyebrows, to applaud Trump’s speech was quickly turned into hilarious memes on Twitter.
“We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise and the common good,” Trump said. Following which, Pelosi, who was seated behind the President, stood up and gave a big round of applause in a manner that was felt so sarcastic by some Twitter users, that her clap was even compared to that of Joker’s from The Dark Knight. Congrats to her, we now have a new term called the #PelosiClap.
That’s not all. The epic clap has also been made into a reaction GIF. Well then, even after the speech is forgotten, people can still make use of the Pelosi Clap as a means to express sarcastic rant on the micro-blogging platform.
