Britt Criticizes Biden In SOTU Response

Sen. Katie Britt (R-AL) gave the Republican response to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address Thursday, in which she criticized the president’s policies and called on him to make major changes to his border and economic policies. The senator’s response also came just after the arrest of a Gold Star father who interrupted the president’s speech.

The senator called Biden a “dithering and diminished leader” during her response. Britt made the response from her kitchen table and earlier shared a photo of her family.

She said that major decisions made in the nation started at the kitchen table.

The country we know and love seems to be slipping away, and it feels like the next generation will have fewer opportunities –- and less freedoms — than we did. I worry my own children may not even get a shot at living their American Dreams,” said Britt.

The nation’s youngest woman in the Senate said that Biden was a “permanent politician who has actually been in office for longer than I’ve even been alive.”

She said that Biden “is not in command” and that the “free world deserves better.”

Britt further cited Biden’s border policy, which she called a “disgrace.”

“It’s despicable. And it’s almost entirely preventable,” she said.

Britt called the consequences of Biden’s border policy and the entry of more than seven million illegal immigrants in the past three years “tragic but foreseeable” and cited effects in small towns and cities.

The result, she said, made life “more and more dangerous” in the country.

“Mr. President, enough is enough. Innocent Americans are dying and you only have yourself to blame. Fulfill your oath of office,” the senator said. “Reverse your policies and this crisis and stop the suffering.”

Steven Nikoui, the father of slain Marine Lance Cpl. Kareem Nikoui was arrested after shouting during the president’s address.

The Gold Star father stated the place of his son’s death and his battalion. Nikoui’s comments came as Biden argued that the country was safer than when he took office.
