NOTE: This is an old story. The incident happened during Biden’s last State of the Union speech, which was in early March of 2022. But, as Biden is again doing a SOTU address, we thought it would be a good bit more entertaining than whatever he’ll ramble on about, as mocking Pelosi is far more fun than getting frustrated by Biden. Enjoy!
During President Trump’s last State of the Union address, Pelosi, sitting behind him, ripped his speech to pieces as soon as he finished speaking, a horrendous display of bad manners and a showing of the “unity” the Democrats are actually after. Watch her here:
Well, now she’s back to making a fool of herself during State of the Union addresses, this time by licking her chops “like the Joker on meth” while Biden speaks. Here are a few clips of her and the comments about her performance from Twitter:

Yet weirder than her face and hobo-like hand rubbing is when she was doing that performance; it came during a portion of Biden’s speech in which he was discussing the infamous, toxic “burn pits” from the Iraq war that gave many a soldier cancer or other issues.
He said “I’ve always believed that we have a sacred obligation to equip all those we send to war and care for them and their families when they come home,” then went on to add that his administration is “providing assistance with job training and housing, and now helping lower-income veterans get VA care debt-free.”
Continuing his discussion of the horrific burn pits, he said “Our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan faced many dangers. One was stationed at bases and breathing in toxic smoke from ‘burn pits’ that incinerated wastes of war—medical and hazard material, jet fuel, and more.”
As a bit more context, Rice University had this to say about the burn pits in Iraq and the chemicals they were exposing troops to:
The same deadly chemicals found in the herbicide Agent Orange that was sprayed on the jungles of Vietnam during the Vietnam War are being released in burn pits on U.S. military bases across Iraq and Afghanistan.
“Otherwise healthy U.S. service members are returning from deployment with cancer, leukemia, respiratory illnesses and other chronic conditions,” said Chelsey Poisson, a RIC nursing student with prior military service in the R.I. Army National Guard. Poisson has made it her mission to advocate for service members who have been exposed to burn pits and to push for legislation to change military policies.
Burn pits are massive holes backhoed in the ground to dispose of waste/garbage on U.S. military bases. One of the largest burn pits – at Joint-Base Balad in Iraq – spanned 10 acres. Smaller metal barrels are used at smaller platoons. The danger, Poisson said, is what is being burnt in them.
So, Pelosi’s weird, gleeful knuckle-rubbing came during Biden’s discussion of those horrible pits. Why? Was she not listening to what he was saying (understandable and likely), or is she just that excited at the idea of soldiers getting cancer from burn pits?
Either way, it was a very weird performance made all the more odd by the sad portion of the speech it came during.
