But although Pelosi insists that her clapping was “sincere,” her daughter thought otherwise:
#waybackwednesday – oh yes that clap took me back to the teen years. She knows. And she knows that you know. And frankly she’s disappointed that you thought this would work. But here’s a clap. #youtriedit pic.twitter.com/vUCX2uAUvv

Critics have reacted with scorn to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi reenacting her infamous State of the Union applause alongside celebrities Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom at a Los Angeles gala.
