Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Confrontation at Biden’s State of the Union Address Sparks Controversy

During President Joe Biden’s highly anticipated State of the Union address on Tuesday, the proceedings took a combative turn as Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene emerged as a vocal critic among Republicans, expressing strong objection to Biden’s assertion regarding potential cuts to Social Security and Medicare.

In a moment captured on video, Greene could be seen shouting “liar!” as Biden addressed the audience, particularly accusing “not even a majority” of Republicans of advocating for cuts to the essential entitlement programs.

This interruption, accompanied by boos from fellow Republicans, marked a stark departure from the usual decorum of such events.

Despite Greene’s objection, Biden attempted to the best of his ability to continue his speech without directly addressing the he incident.

This contentious episode served as the centerpiece of Biden’s address, overshadowing even the relatively muted response from the GOP to the president’s call for a ban on assault weapons—an issue that has long been a point of contention between Democrats and Republicans.
