The GOP leadership warned its rank and file about hot microphone moments during POTUS' State of the Union address to no avail.

There are past experiences to give the Republican House Speaker cause for serious concern, but his warning fell on deaf ears.

  • US Representative Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) is still serving in the House shouted “You lie!” during then-President Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress in 2009, prompting the Democratic-controlled House to formally reprimand him.


  • US Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) heckled President Bidend last time during his State of the Union last year, at one point trying to start a “Build the wall” chant as he spoke about immigration.

If what one of my teachers used to tell me… A word to the wise is sufficient. It probably means that the latest group of Republican hecklers is not wise and may lack many other attributes.…
