Pres. Biden's State of the Union speech, and a rowdy GOP: Analysis
President Joe Biden gave his second State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress and the nation last night.
His 72-minute address, his first since Republicans gained control of the House of Representatives, was met with an abundance of partisan heckling, and even a couple of moments of bipartisan approval. Many consider the speech to be Biden’s opening gambit in a bid for re-election to a second term as president.
Joining Tom today for an analysis of the speech is the author and journalist Farai Chideya. She’s the host of Our Body Politic, which you can hear on WYPR Tuesday nights at 9:00, although last night it was pre-empted by our coverage of the State of the Union Address. But fear not, you can catch the podcast anytime.
Farai Chideya joins us on Zoom from Brooklyn, New York.
