Republican Rep. Andy Ogles (R-TN) set Democrat President Joe Biden straight during last night’s State of the Union address.
Ogles loudly heckled when Biden brought up the absolute tragedy of over 70,000 fentanyl deaths in America.
The Mexican drug cartels are making a fortune sending the poison north of the border made that much easier by Biden’s lax border policies and the Democrats’ refusal to put criminals behind bars in blue cities.
As Biden made the comment, Ogles shouted out, “it’s your fault.”

The media was not pleased about the heckle, with CNN’s Kaitlan Collins grilling Rep. Byron Donalds (R-FL) over the incident.
But Donalds would not back down and turned the tables on the CNN co-host.
Collins asked Donalds about the heckle, “was that appropriate?”
Donalds fired back that “the drug cartels are using his border changes to increase trafficking of fentanyl into the United States.”
Collins said, “We all acknowledge fentanyl trafficking is a problem, but do you think it’s appropriate to put the entire thing on President Biden — to say it’s your fault — in front of a father who lost his daughter to that?”
Donalds shot back: “If the trafficking of fentanyl is up because of the president’s changes, it is his fault.
“Who are we gonna blame?
“Are you gonna blame members of Congress? Are you gonna blame the father?
“You’re not gonna do that.”
House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) was not happy about the heckling and said:
“President Biden delivered a compelling speech outlining a vision to make life better for everyday Americans.
“And his dignity presented a stark contrast with the right-wing extremists who are unfit to serve.”
