No State of the Union address is complete without its fair share of posturing, snide remarks and the usual interparty squabbles coming from both sides of the aisle.
President Joe Biden’s address Tuesday night was no different, with talks of the economy, Medicare and Social Security bringing out some choice words from members in the chamber.
The First Lady and members of Congress brought a variety of guests from the commonwealth, but that’s not all. Amongst the Twitter jabs were a Chinese balloon reference, an attempt at a lightbulb joke and a George Santos appearance.
Here are some of the congressional delegation’s reactions to Biden’s State of the Union address.
