Democrat President Joe Biden was heckled by Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
Biden gave his first State of Union address to a nation overwhelmed with rising costs and sinking confidence.
However, Boebert was determined not to let Biden off the hook and heckled him twice during his speech.
Biden was talking about American soldiers who end up in a “flag-draped coffin.”
“You put them in 13 of them,” Boebert shouted back in reference to the 13 flag-draped coffins that came home from Afghanistan after Biden’s botched withdrawal.
President Biden: “And they come home, many of the world’s fittest and best warriors…in a flag draped coffin.”

Boebert and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) also started chanting “build the wall” when Biden pivoted to immigration.
Boebert, who wore a “Drill Baby Drill” outfit to the speech, told Fox News:
“Ramping domestic energy production will tame inflation, boost our economy, and secure the safety and security of the United States of America and our allies.”
Boebert did stand and cheer for one of Biden’s lines last night.
Elsewhere in his speech, Biden made Democrats Maxine Waters, Cori Bush, and the rest of the radical-Left wing scowl.
Biden said: “We should all agree: The answer is not to defund the police.
“The answer is to fund the police.”
Boebert jumped from her seat shouting, “That’s right!”
Her remark prompted some boos from fellow lawmakers.
“Her disruption was inappropriate, especially given the substance of the comments that the president was making at the time, which is to continue this way, which is to protect service members and our veterans,” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said.
Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., said: “It’s something that I think that there’s a place. That’s not the place to do that.”
The heckling came a day after Republican leaders condemned Greene for speaking at a gathering of white nationalists in Florida over the weekend.
Both Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., condemned her appearance at the America First Political Action Committee conference.
