Published February 6th

Although Donald Trump delivered a long-winded State of the Union address that lasted nearly 90 minutes, the most memorable moment of the evening came from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. 

During his speech, Trump spoke about how the country needs to "compromise" more to get ahead.

"We must reject the politics of revenge, resistance, and retribution, and embrace the boundless potential of cooperation, compromise, and the common good," he said.

  1. The line, which is ironic coming from the man who shut down the government over a wall, received a shady clap from Pelosi
  2. And the speaker's petty applause quickly became a new mood
  3. Pelosi's sarcastic energy was quickly compared to other famous shady queens
  4. The clap meme hilariously fits into any situation
  5. Honestly, Speaker Pelosi deserves medal of freedom for inventing a new form of clapping
