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:
Nice @SpeakerMcCarthy truth has no need for immature and disrespectful theatrics.
Keep moving forward.

This is one of the first things that you said that I applaud. We need more unity. Keep stuff like this coming.

Good response. We should avoid any semblance of “tit-for-tat” paybacks. That makes us look as small as they are. Besides, there are always better ways to win the long game and a great outcome.

As much as I would love it, it’s not how it should be handled.

That’s a great role model to act professional even in disagreements for many young generations who may be watching State of Union.

I’m glad to hear this. Both parties need to work together. We are all Americans at the end of the day
