McCarthy is asked if he’ll be ripping up Biden’s SOTU speech, his response is a masterclass in one-upmanship

Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy posted a video explaining how he will be responding to President Joe Biden’s State of the Union speech, and how it will differ vastly from Nancy Pelosi’s famous reaction.

“A lot of people have been asking if I’m planning on ripping up President Biden’s speech tonight,” McCarthy tweeted, attaching a brief video.


“You know I don’t believe in the theatrics of tearing up speeches,” he said. “I respect the other side. I can disagree on policy, but I want to make sure this country is stronger, economically sound, energy independent, secure and accountable.”

Social media loved this idea, including some shocking support from the left:
