UPDATE: Parliamentarian Rules Against Pelosi, She Violated the Rules; Pelosi Sparks Chaos on the House Floor Ahead of Resolution to Condemn President Trump

UPDATE II: Pelosi definitely violated the rules, as announced by Democrat Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. House Democrats voted to give her special treatment and keep her words in the record. 

UPDATE: According to the rules, Pelosi isn't allowed to call the President racist from the House floor. The House is now voting on whether her words should be taken back.
