Skip to comments.Biden tangles with GOP in raucous State of the Union — barely mentions China

WASHINGTON — President Biden’s State of the Union promised a call for unity but his repeated pokes at Republicans — and at least one glaring falsehood — saw the speech devolve into a near-shouting match Tuesday night.
Republican members of Congress vocally disputed several of his claims about them — but especially when Biden said the GOP was plotting Social Security cuts.
And in the 70-minute speech — which also drew jeers blaming the president for the rise in fentanyl deaths — Biden barely mentioned China, just days after a spy balloon from the communist aggressor traversed the US last week.
The 80-year-old president began his second State of the Union by appearing to make an effort to follow through on the White House’s “unity” messaging spin — warmly greeting House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) after entering, before he proceeded to attack the GOP.
“Instead of making the wealthy pay their fair share, some Republicans, some Republicans want Medicare and Social Security to sunset,” Biden claimed, leading to an uproar from Republicans.
That moment left Biden attempting to calm the heckling by saying, “I’m not saying it’s a majority.”
“Anybody who doubts it, contact my office, I’ll give you a copy of the proposal,” Biden attempted to counter the loud jeers.
“Liar!” shouted Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.).
“I’m glad to see — no, I tell you, I enjoy conversion,” Biden said, trying to play off the awkward and contentious moment.
Biden has repeatedly claimed that the GOP wants to cut Social Security and Medicare — despite McCarthy repeatedly and publicly ruling that out as he and other conservatives push for cuts to discretionary spending and a clawback of unspent pandemic stimulus funds as part of a debt ceiling impasse.

The check cleared from Beijing. Big guy got his 10%.
Hey, he took action! Shot down the spy balloon, right after it crossed Alaska AND the Mainland!
Looks like I missed another clown show from President Retard
....lol........won’t be a check. One of his attorneys “handed” him a wire transfer/deposit receipt with no name on it....just a numbered account. One thing Old Joe remembers is his numbered bank account.
His attorney hands it to him because Joe can hide behind attorney-client privledge. (talking to your attorney is privledged you know!)
He must have been juiced up on meth b/c he was rattling faster than an auctioneer.
Well, Joseph Stolen is owned by the Chinese, so there’s that.
(right after it crossed)
Gotta give it time to upload to the relay satellites 🛰️🛰️🛰️🛰️ for download in Beijing and other ground-based stations 📡📡📡📡. /shiny side out
Another stumbling and bumbling performance. Biden’s handlers ought to have exercised a former tradition and simply sent a copy of the President’s State of the Union Address to the Congress in the form of a written message and spared us the sight of an imbecile slurring words and forgetting the names of people that he pointed to in the gallery.
The REAL GOP aka Freedom Caucus got raucous.
Finally grew a pair.
Two year too late.
He was so juiced on meth he sounded like an auctioneer.
Selling us out to the highest bidder.
NBD if he gets his 10% /s
Joe Biden appears to be dysarthric.
Seems not in regards to Trump.
Why anyone would watch this mumbling fumbling fool and then comment after is either as stupid as he is or is begging for attention. We’ve established 100x’s over the kind of animal is running the country.
We need unity, so stop disagreeing with me, you baby-killing, racist, capitalist exploiter, Nazi partisans!
How could you!/sarc
Biden is a perfect example of what we are to expect here and around the world. Liberals own the election system world wide and will continue to control electronic voting. Conservatives better get used to losing elections especially important ones. Conservatives keep nominating candidates who are naive or stupid, maybe both as an example is McDaniel and Sanders.
