Mike Lee discusses the State of the Union with Gov. Cox

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) sat down with Gov. Spencer Cox to discuss their reactions to President Biden’s State of the Union address. The two expressed their shared disappointment that the President’s speech lacked in substance and mischaracterized Republican positions related to the debt ceiling.

This [State of the Union] was objectively different than any other I’ve attended because the President of the United States looked us right in the eye and mischaracterized what half the people in the chamber believe,” said Sen. Lee. “It wasn’t true, and he did that not just once; he did it two, three, four times.”

If you’re writing for applause lines, you write crappy speeches,” said Gov. Cox. “There’s not much substance, and when there is, it tends not to be good substance.”
