Leftists Who Praised Pelosi’s Speech-Tearing Get Huffy over Biden-Heckling

(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In the wake of the annual melodrama that is the State of the Union speech, leftist media pundits are excoriating Republican Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., and other Republicans for interrupting President Joe Biden’s speech at several junctures.

Ironically, the very same pundits praised former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for her theatrical tearing apart of President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address three years ago.

Republicans were particularly upset with Biden for his inflammatory and dishonest remarks about the economic plan of the Republican party.

“Some of my Republican friends want to take the economy hostage unless I agree to their economic plans. All of you at home should know what their plans are,” Biden said. “Instead of making the wealthy pay their fair share, some Republicans want Medicare and Social Security to sunset every five years.”

“Anybody who doubts it, call my office, I’ll give you a copy of the proposal,” he continued, alluding presumably to a prior proposal led by Rep. Rick Scott, R-Fla.

Greene repeatedly shouted at Biden during the speech, calling him a “liar” and sending the leftist media into fits about the decline of civility in politics.

Politico, in particular, published a hit piece celebrating the speech and slamming Republicans for their “extraordinary rudeness.”

“With boos, taunts, groans, and sarcastic chortles, the opposition party effectively turned themselves into prime-time props for President Joseph Biden,” melodramatic journalist John Harris wrote.

According to Harris, the speech marked a major rhetorical victory for Biden.

“No one was surprised — certainly not Biden, who recognized an opportunity when it is delivered gift-wrapped before a nationwide audience.”

The Washington Post also got in on the fun, calling Greene’s antics a “remarkable display of partisan animosity” which “illustrates the challenges gripping a deeply divided Washington.”
