Nancy Pelosi... social media star?


That's pretty much the status Pelosi attained after her sarcastic clapping during President Donald Trump's State of the Union address became an instant meme.

Here it is again, just in case you've been living under a rock for the last week.


The internet obsessed over the clap, giving rise to a slew of memes like this one...

"Oh yes that clap took me back to the teen years. She knows. And she knows that you know. And frankly she's disappointed that you thought this would work. But here's a clap," wrote Christine on Twitter.

Pelosi will never be able to live this down!

Every once in awhile, somebody comes along, enters your life, and catapults themselves to that awful, unique position at the top of your list of the worst people you have ever met.

Sometimes, the person's blindingly terrible behavior and overall essence is actually impressive. We ask ourselves, "how could a person like this actually exist on purpose?"
