    headlines that could've been trump didn't mention climate change once? that he gave a racist conspiracy theorist an award? that both republicans and democrats applauded someone no one has voted for and called him the legitimate president of venezuela?

    yes. success.

    and i know these things don't matter to joe public but what does her behaviour bring to the table apart from a new bottom baseline from which to go lower? what comes next? giving the finger? pooping on the podium?

    a ton of congresspeople didn't even dignify his speech with their presence.

    No, I totally get where you're coming from. I do feel that none of the things you list would have been headlines within the wider media but that's says a lot more about the media than it does Trump, Pelosi or any of the attendees.

    They've been trying that approach for five years. Trump says this! Trump says that! Trump does this! Trump does that!

    It's not working.

    Besides, how could any of those headlines stand out when the very next day Trump would be acquitted?

    Which of course Pelosi knew. Her move was fantastic, symbolic, and will be remembered.
