Nancy Pelosi's daughter responds to sarcastic clap-back at Trump during State of the Union

We've all been there. You attempt to do something to impress someone, perhaps you're even showing off a bit, and your mum instantly puts you back in your place.

Now, one of Nancy Pelosi's daughters has said that her mum's now viral 'clap back' at Donald Trump during his State of the Union address was doing just that.

Taking to Twitter on Wednesday morning, Christine Pelosi shared an image of her mother mid-clap, with a smirk on her face, condescendingly looking at Trump during his State of the Union address.

Alongside the image, she wrote:

#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.#youtried

And, who hasn't seen that kind of behaviour from a long-suffering parent?

The clap was delivered by the Democrat House speaker after the president said that Americans need to 'reject the politics of revenge and retribution', and embrace 'cooperation and the common good'.

The look on her face and Trump turning to acknowledge her were almost too good to be true, and it, of course, became an instant meme.

After Christine shared her memory, many people on social media couldn't get enough.

This isn't the first time Nancy Pelosi has seemed to reference Trump as an overgrown child or baby.

In January, during the longest government shut down in history over funding for Trump's proposed border wall, she scolded him for being 'insensitive' to the needs of the people after he walked out of a meeting with her, and called it a 'waste of time'.

On the 20th day of the shutdown, she said:

Federal workers will not be receiving their pay checks and what that means in their lives is tragic in terms of their credit rating, paying their mortgage, paying their rent, paying their children’s tuition and the rest.

The president seems to be insensitive to that.

He thinks maybe they could just ask their father for money, but they can’t. They can’t.

Oh, Trump, maybe it's time for a nap?
