House Speaker Nancy Pelosi angered Trump supporters when she ripped up her copy of President Trump's State of the Union Address before he was done speaking last night.

Afterwards, Pelosi held up the torn papers to cheers from her fellow Democrats.
 

 
"What is wrong with her?" asked Kellyanne Conway, political counselor to the President. "Who mutters to themselves during the State of the Union?" Conway referred to Pelosi as "an incorrigible child" for ripping up Trump's speech.

In response to criticism that Trump "snubbed" Pelosi, who offered a handshake after he had already turned away from her, Conway said Trump simply didn't see Pelosi's hand.
 

 
Among Trump's critics was openly homosexual actor Billy Porter, who labeled Trump's U.S. presidency as "one of the biggest crises of my lifetime" in his LGBT+ State of the Union address on Tuesday.

The Pose star's speech for Logo's second annual event came just hours before President Trump delivered his third State of the Union address to the nation.

In his hard-hitting speech, Porter targeted topics such as Trump's ban on transgender people enlisting in the U.S. military, and a rule that allows healthcare professionals to refuse medical procedures to LGBT+ people.

"Last year, I told you that the state of our union is strong,” he began. "While it certainly has been battered, our union is far from broken. Now, in 2020, our responsibility as citizens has been more evident," Porter said.

Urging viewers to use their feet to vote in 2020 to bring an end to Trump's time in the White House, Porter continued:

"Donald J. Trump has painted himself as a friend of the LGBTQ community, while revealing his true colors at every malicious turn. This heinous violence against trans people, which disproportionately affects trans women of color is nothing short of an epidemic. We must confront it as a community and as a country, and we must elect officials who recognize it for the crisis that it is."

Porter concluded: "The fate of the entire country is in the balance. I know it sounds dramatic, but if now is not the time for drama, chile, when is?"

Donald and Melania Trump

President Trump says he wants to stamp out HIV, the virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). Trump will announce his plan to wipe out HIV by 2030 during his State of the Union Address to the nation tonight.

Before Trump ran for President, he generously donated to AIDS research, and he and his wife Melania attended Elton John AIDS Foundation galas.

On Tuesday night, President Trump will pledge to end the HIV epidemic in America, according to a report on Politico.com website.

But health experts say if the President is serious about ending the HIV epidemic, he should treat transgenders and immigrants better.

Saying Trump's announcement would be a "pleasant surprise," health expert Lucy Bradley-Springer told Buzzfeed that Trump "would be an unlikely messenger for ending the stigma toward people with HIV."

Bradley-Springer was one of six experts who resigned from the presidential advisory committee on HIV policy before it was disbanded by Trump. They wrote a scathing letter saying Trump's policies harmed people with HIV and AIDS.

About 1.2 million Americans are living with HIV, and every year another 40,000 people are infected. Men who have sex with men (MSM), Black women, and immigrants are among the highest risk categories to contract HIV.

"Many immigrants are afraid to access HIV prevention and medical care, out of fear of deportation," noted a report from AIDS United. "These barriers have the potential to drive dramatic increases in new HIV cases among Latinx gay and bisexual foreign-born men."
