Nancy Pelosi ripped the President Trumps speech while standing behind him. There are many speculations as to why she did such a stunt?

Video of Nancy Pelosi responding to the reporters query after tearing the papers:
Was Nancy angry with Trump over snubbed handshake?
Trump refused shaking hand with her when he first arrived for the speech. Which probably built tension between the two, and Nancy, being a female, couldn’t hold her emotions and ultimately behaved in an immature way by ripping off the speech papers in half.
Nancy prepared for the stunt by probably giving a small tear to the papers when she was sitting, so that the stunt went well when she would do it while standing in front of the camera, behind the president.
