Franklin Graham slams Pelosi for tearing up speech: 'What's wrong with these people?'

Evangelist Franklin Graham slammed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for ripping up her copy of President Trump's State of the Union Tuesday night.

Though Graham and other faith leaders applauded Trump's remarks, he said in a Facebook post Wednesday that Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues' disdain "felt like a very personal resentment and hatred for the successes of America."

"How could leaders in Congress be so indignant about good news for the people of this country?" the son of the late Billy Graham writes, in reference to many Democrats' refusal to applaud or stand for Trump and his honored guests.

"Why would they not celebrate people seeing increases in their wages, our military being strengthened, a young girl receiving a scholarship, victories in the fight against ISIS, a military hero reunited with his family, a 100-year-old three-war veteran being honored, and other great news?" Graham said.

Graham's comments came after Vice President Mike Pence, who was seated next to Pelosi during Trump's speech, told "Fox & Friends" that tearing up the speech was "a new low."
