Sen. Katie Britt, 42, appeared at times on the verge of tears as she criticized President Joe Biden’s policies after he defended them in his State of the Union address Thursday night.

The Alabama Republican was passionate and visibly angry, but also optimistic, as she delivered her party’s official rebuttal to Biden’s speech to a joint session of Congress, criticizing the president’s policies on immigration and the economy and attacking his age and fitness for office.

Britt told heartbreaking stories about the sexual assault of a girl trafficked and repeatedly raped at the southern border and the recent tragedy of Georgia nursing student Laken Riley, 22, who was murdered by an illegal immigrant released into the country with status undocumented in 2022.

“As a mother, I can’t stop thinking about this,” the emotional mother of two said in her rebuttal. ‘I mean, this could have been my daughter. This could have been yours.

“And tonight, President Biden finally said his name,” he added. But he refused to take responsibility for his own actions. Mr. President, enough is enough. Innocent Americans are dying and you only have yourself to blame.

He said the American dream has now “turned into a nightmare.”

Britt sat in a spot at her family’s kitchen table in Birmingham, Alabama, on Thursday night for rebuttal remarks to Biden’s speech, where she discussed kitchen table issues with tuned-in Americans.

Specifically, he talked about the disconnect Biden has with his economic policies and how they really impact the average American.

“The American people are scraping by while President Biden proudly proclaims that Bidenomics is working,” he said, then added of the Southern insult of, “My God, bless his heart.” We know better.

The rising Republican star who was elected to her seat at age 40 brought up Biden’s age, which she nearly cut in half, as she insisted that he can’t relate to today’s average American and therefore doesn’t He knows how to move the nation forward.

Britt said the 81-year-old doesn’t understand the economic struggles of American families as he pushes his Bidenomics agenda.

“What we saw was the performance of a permanent politician, who has actually been in office longer than I have,” he said of the president’s speech. “One thing was pretty clear, though: President Biden is out of touch.”

“Let’s be honest, it’s been a minute since Joe Biden got gas, carpooled, or even pushed a shopping cart,” Britt later added in his less than 20-minute remarks. ‘Meanwhile, the rest of us look at our dollar and know it doesn’t go that far. We see it every day.’

In particular, Britt’s status has been under the microscope lately after the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that fertilized eggs for in vitro fertilization (IVF) are classified as a human life.

This decision has led to massive confusion about how clinics should handle these eggs in Alabama, especially in light of the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade in June 2022. Alabama was a trigger law state, meaning that once the decision was overturned, abortion became essentially totally illegal in the southern red state.

Biden raised this conundrum in his remarks Thursday night, criticizing the Supreme Court justices (six of whom attended his speech) for the decision that ended a woman’s national rights to an abortion.

“This is the United States of America and, in my opinion, it’s about time we start acting like it,” Britt said in his rebuttal.

‘President Biden’s border policies are a disgrace. This crisis is despicable. And the truth is, it’s almost entirely preventable,” he added. “From fentanyl poisonings to gruesome murders, there are empty chairs at kitchen tables like this tonight because of President Biden’s senseless border policies.”

“Right now, our commander in chief is not in command,” he said in concluding his remarks. “The free world deserves better than a faltering and diminished leader.”

“America deserves leaders who recognize that secure borders, stable prices, safe streets and a strong defense are indeed the cornerstones of a great nation.”
