Reps. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) repeatedly heckled President Joe Biden during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, to the point that they even tried to kick-start a chant of “Build the wall!” during a portion of Biden’s speech when he discussed immigration policy. During an appearance on MSNBC, Biden administration press secretary Jen Psaki demolished the duo’s antics, noting how their attempts to drag the proceedings into the rhetorical mud don’t automatically undo the legitimate seriousness of what’s at issue here. Greene and Boebert are more like people on the sidelines yelling for a sports game to stop… while literally no one is changing their behavior in response. Psaki pointedly commented as follows, referring to the two Congresswomen:

‘There’s no question we should do more to help our nation’s veterans, people who have been hurt by the impacts of burn pits. Of course we need to do more to work together to cure cancer. And they were heckling around that time and that moment. I think that says a lot more about them than it does about how important these priorities are and how much the vast majority of people who were sitting there watching in that chamber last night could work together to solve exactly those problems and others.’

Watch Psaki below:

Boebert shouted out during a portion of the president’s remarks when he mentioned battlefield-tied medical conditions that could “put [soldiers] in a flag-draped coffin” — “13 of them,” Boebert yelled in response, referring to the 13 U.S. military personnel who died amid the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. Boebert ranted on Twitter early Wednesday that, supposedly, the ‘left is pissed because I called out Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan that left 13 of America’s finest in a flag-draped coffin. They are mad because a speech was “interrupted”. Ask the the families who lost their loved ones how interrupted their lives are now’ — all of which is deceptive. To pretend as though there’s been no serious reckoning by the Biden administration with the realities of those casualties in Afghanistan is nonsense. Boebert and those aligned with her have essentially seemed to build their entire political identities around trolling. They don’t appear interested in joining together to solve problems facing the country — instead, they’re more inclined to yelling out passing references to various tragedies during presidential speeches. That’s not leadership — it’s embarrassment, at least for those nearby.
