US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended her speech-ripping performance after President Donald Trump's State of the Union address and took fresh aim at his fitness for office even as he celebrated his impeachment acquittal

By Thursday, Trump was waving banner newspaper headlines reading, "Acquittal" and celebrating the vindication at an hour-plus White House news conference.Back in the Capitol, Pelosi again went after Trump's speech and defended her decision to rip up her copy behind his back, on camera. She said the address revealed "a state of mind that had no contact with reality whatsoever.

"I've extended every possible courtesy. I've shown every level of respect," Pelosi said, describing her public conduct, which included "extending the hand of friendship" to him as Trump arrived.As Trump spoke, Pelosi said, she quickly read ahead through her copy of the speech. "I saw the compilation of falsehoods."

About one-third of the way through, she said she started to think, "There has to be something that clearly indicates to the American people that this is not the truth.""He has shredded the truth in his speech, shredded the Constitution in his conduct. I shredded the address," she said. "Thank you all very much."
