(TheRedWire.com) – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) made a pointed remark about President Biden’s State of the Union address, suggesting that the most noteworthy moment occurred when Biden concluded his speech and exited. This comment was made during an interview with Laura Ingraham on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” in response to whether there was a particularly inspiring part of the president’s address that stood out to Gingrich.

The speech, delivered by Biden, was met with enthusiasm from his supporters but faced criticism from conservative figures, including the current Speaker, Mike Johnson (R-La.), who found it challenging to maintain a neutral expression while seated behind Biden during the event.

Johnson expressed his strong disagreement with the content of Biden’s speech, indicating that his reactions, which have become the subject of online memes, reflected a broader dissatisfaction that he believes resonates with the American public. This sentiment was further echoed in his conversation with Sean Hannity on Fox News.

Gingrich, in his critique, described Biden’s State of the Union as “the most hateful, divisive, and destructive” ever delivered in such a setting. He predicted that Biden’s remarks would significantly influence Americans’ willingness to support him in any future endeavors.

Additionally, Biden’s address included several references to the former President Trump, occurring shortly after Trump’s primary competitor, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, withdrew from the Republican presidential primary race. This context adds a layer of political tension to the responses and interpretations of Biden’s speech.
