McCarthy Admits MAGA Reps “Took The Bait” At SOTU

The New York Daily News reports:

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy admitted Wednesday that Republicans “took the bait” by allowing President Joe Biden to turn GOP heckling at his State of the Union address into political gold.

“The one thing we need to be is, we need to be smart,” McCarthy told Fox News after the widely praised performance by Biden. “Don’t take the bait, stay with the American public about what we want to do.”

Biden deftly turned aside the nasty outburst by urging Republicans to openly show Americans that they agree that those programs should not be cut. The result was a bipartisan standing ovation — and a political victory for Biden.
