WATCH: Jen Psaki Responds to Taylor Greene, Boebert’s Heckling From Last Night’s SOTU

Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech last night was markedly different than the ones delivered by Donald Trump. The President preached unity and moving the country forward. He also discussed issues with widespread bi-partisan support like healthcare reform, education, and funding the police.

Lauren Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene, however, weren’t there to listen to a speech. The two Republicans were there to heckle the President and embarrass themselves. Press Secretary Jen Psaki was asked about their actions during a Wednesday interview on MSNBC.

During that heckling and I was watching on TV with a group of my team members and colleagues,” Psaki began, “and we were all excited and cheering, and that was the moment in the speech where the president was talking about his unity agenda and talking about priorities that we should all be able to agree on.”

The Press Secretary continued:

Look, one American dies every five minutes of an opioid overdose. There is 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. 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, too, probably.”
