State of the Union

The Alabama senator is standing by her use of a misleading sex trafficking story in her response to President Joe Biden's State of the Union address.
Experts break down this vocal phenomenon — most recently displayed by Sen. Katie Britt — and what it means in politics and pop culture today.
Karla Jacinto Romero, whose experience was distorted by the Alabama senator in a prime-time address, said she believes Britt used her story for political purposes.
Rep. Gwen Moore (Wis.) gave herself a pep talk about ethics and humanity when she found herself sitting next to the far-right lawmaker.
In her rebuttal, Britt shared the story of a sex trafficking victim that had nothing to do with Biden's border policies.
A surprise guest mocked the Alabama senator's GOP rebuttal to President Joe Biden's address.
"I shouldn't have used 'illegal,' it’s undocumented," Biden told MSNBC's Jonathan Capehart.
The senator who delivered the GOP's rebuttal shared a Bush-era anecdote somehow meant to attack Biden.
“Donald Trump believes the job of the president is to take care of Donald Trump," he says in the ad. "I believe the job of the president's to fight for you."
Although the Alabama senator's speech was brutally mocked on social media, the president was more conciliatory.
