House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.) got melodramatic on Wednesday claiming that President Trump’s State of The Union address was “dangerous” and “brings tears to the eyes of the Statue of Liberty.”

After you stop laughing so hard that whatever beverage you are drinking stops coming out of your nose, play the video above.

“He makes these statements about newcomers to our country and equating it in a criminal way – what was that about?” Pelosi said at a press conference Wednesday morning.

“It was – I would say confusing – it was worse than that, it was dangerous what he said last night.”

“As I say, over and over, what he is doing brings tears to the eyes of the Statue of Liberty and instills fear in the hearts of those that are concerned about our Dreamers,” Pelosi said.

You’ll have to excuse me now; I think I’m going to be sick.

Before I go, here is the passage from President Trump's State of The Union that Nancy seems to be so apoplectic over that she believes the Statue of Liberty is shedding tears:

     Tonight, I am calling on Congress to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13, and other criminal gangs, to break into our country.  We have proposed new legislation that will fix our immigration laws and support our ICE and Border Patrol agents -- these are great people; these are great, great people -- that work so hard in the midst of such danger so that this can never happen again. 

     The United States is a compassionate nation.  We are proud that we do more than any other country anywhere in the world to help the needy, the struggling, and the underprivileged all over the world.  But as President of the United States, my highest loyalty, my greatest compassion, my constant concern is for America's children, America's struggling workers, and America's forgotten communities.  I want our youth to grow up to achieve great things.  I want our poor to have their chance to rise.

     So, tonight, I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties, Democrats and Republicans, to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion, and creed.  (Applause.)  My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans, to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream.  Because Americans are dreamers too.
