Last night’s State of the Union speech was like none we’ve seen before.
While normally a pretty tepid affair where the sitting president reads off a partisan diatribe of accomplishments, Joe Biden left Sleepy Joe at home and instead brought feisty jokes, answered rowdy hecklers with stinging clapbacks, and administered just the right amount of shade to whip Republicans–and viewers at home–into a frenzy. The library is open!

Throwing in jokes about the Super Bowl, ruining Kevin McCarthy’s reputation, and teasing GOP lawmakers who voted against his infrastructure bill by saying he’ll see them at the groundbreaking of the funded projects, Biden somehow turned his one hour and 12 minute speech into a non-transphobic Netflix comedy special.
In one of the liveliest moments of the night, right-wing loon Marjorie Taylor Green took disrespect to a new level booing and yelling “liar” after Biden said Republicans wanted to end Social Security and Medicare. Although Sen. Rick Scott of Florida has made that proposal, Biden seized the moment to get the GOP conference to all agree on camera that gutting the programs was off the table. Dark Brandon rises again!
The rambunctiousness of the night even permeated the styles choices seen inside the Capitol. While normally filled with an endless parade of ill-fitting suits and shapeless dresses from the likes of Sears, Talbots, and JC Penney, several members of Congress took the opportunity to show off their fabulous fashion finery… with some fits more successful than others. Category is: Capitol Hill eleganza!
Check out the best and worst lewks from the SOTU:

Kamala served executive realness in this custom burgundy suit and matching silk blouse by fashion designer Christian Siriano. Air Force Two isn’t the only thing that’s runway ready!

Dr. FLOTUS looked snatched in this purple regal belted number, but it wasn’t the reason she had the room–and Kamala’s husband–gobsmacked!

MTG’s Ross Dress For Less snowflake pelt is giving Miss Piggy, Cruella de Vil, and Real Housewives of the Ozarks all at once. She’s a triple threat! (Apologies to Miss Piggy, Cruella, and all residents of the Ozarks).
Sen. Krysten Sinema
Who wears this on the floor of Congress? Jesus. Do better, @kyrstensinema. Fire your stylist first. pic.twitter.com/XFIRiDY2WG

The former Democrat showed her true independence by wearing this Big Bird yellow Dynasty-era ’80s prom dress from the Chinese Spy Balloon Spring 2023 collection.
Sen. Bernie Sanders
@BernieSanders is a whole mood. #SOTU pic.twitter.com/XsT9LjkXtd

Bernie knows sometimes taking a fashion risk requires being safe AF. Fingers crossed he brings back another 2021 must-have–the mittens!
Sarah Huckabee Sanders
Did @SarahHuckabee wear a bathrobe to give her Republican response to the #SOTU ? pic.twitter.com/LBpcHP5tG5

Sarah offset her virginal white straitjacket top with a heaping pile of lies, fear mongering, homophobia, race baiting, and more lies. In other words, her classic style.
Rep. Maxwell Frost
State of the Union time!!! Wearing my @AMarch4OurLives pin to represent the fight to #EndGunViolence! pic.twitter.com/Lnh9FMvEgF

The 26-year-old Florida congressman knows the power of the right accessories by rocking pins in support of gun control and ending the climate crisis. Gen Z represent!
George Santos/Kitara Ravache
And George Santos wears a “don’t thread on me” pin, a peculiar choice for a SOTU address (but at least he got rid of his sweaters)./7 pic.twitter.com/l8jJdcA3Sp

Scandalista George Santos’ latest faux pas entailed wearing the problematic Gadsen Flag pin with a mustard tie. Gurl, bye!
Marjorie Taylor Green is a disgusting lying Trumpster!
My expectations for Marge were low and she went even lower.
Time to eliminate the bitch and the rest of the Republicans
And yet she and her fellow Trumpsters keep getting elected
What the heck is the matter with Americans ?
Somebody in MTGs neighborhood is missing their French Poodle today
Georgia’s own Cruella deVille!
it doesn’t matter what Margie tutu greenhole wears. Her outward ugliness will always be what people see. Ask her husband. Buh bye.
That was the only great thing that happened to her, that her husband left her, God the thought of them breeding
@GrizzleyMichael, Q-ella-DeVil has 3 kids by her ex. She had them before she ho’ed out.
Marjorie Taylor Greene rummaged through George Santos Drag closet and this was the best she could come up with? It’s probably what George really wanted to wear.
…..Maxwell Frost is totally cool… and I don’t mean that as a pun regarding his last name……. He’s smart as a whip and not afraid to confront republiKKKans on issues…….. He’s also young and can be a true force for good and getting things done in Congress. I saw him ask pertinent questions of a MORON republiKKKan the other day and was really impressed.
…… This is for Greene, Boebert, Sinema and Santos…….Sing to the tune of ‘Nothing like a Dame’ from South Pacific…………. She is just a f.. uc.. king C.. UN ..T!……….. Nothing but a C. UN… T……… She is just a f. uc …king C …UN.. T…….. She is just a….. f. ..uc k….. ing…… C.. UN… T!!!!!
there is nothing like a dame without shame nothing in the world
Did Santos dress MTG?
yes yes YES YEEEEEEESSSSSS!
EHEHHEH AHAHHAHAHH EHHEHEHEHEHE….. and Sinema, too….. AHAHAHAHH HEHEHEHEH AHAHAHHA HEHEHHE
Uglier, well beyond hell…white trash….it’s time to burn it!!!
I see Cam made an appearance and then was promptly deleted again. I guess his weak and sad troll game wasn’t as strong as he thought it was, looks like Queerty blocked him. He’s probably enraged and stomping around his basement as I type this, as I’d love to see what he has to say about the outfits here and the commentary.
On this thread? Oh, Cam, right.
@lumpypillows he made an appearance a day or so ago and the comment is now gone. So apparently he’s been blocked again or he’s back in a straitjacket someplace babbling to himself about trolls, eating his own smegma, and superior belief that he ran the comments section here. Amused, that’s all. That multiple people could be only one in his mind was and is hysterical. Anyone who disagreed or had a different opinion was one person he was going to try and stomp out. Hilarious, it backfired.
Sad, tragic, irritating…good ol’ cam. As much as I find him smug and irritating, I do sometimes worry about people like him. I think he means well. What he doesn’t get is that we actually agree on 95% of stuff at the big picture level. He looks for enemies. Creates enemies. Burns bridges. And sees a knight in shining armor in the mirror. He’s not alone. Makes my wonder.
did one of the muppets in the balcony become president?
was that marjorie taylor greene or kevin mccarthy coming out as trans after raiding sam smiith’s closet?
there’s some whores in the house
there’s some whores in the house
there’s some whores in the house
there’s some whores in the house (repeat ad nausem)
Low rent, busted face, whores in the house (just to break it up)
MTG looked like a polar bears ass as it’s shitting out a giant turd.
MTG is disgusting. PETA will be going after her at any minute now to throw paint on her. Can’t wait to see that video!!!
MTG looks like something that the cat dragged in and then there’s that wretched coat. And as for Krysten Sinema, looking like the poor man’s version of Krystle Carrington from Dynasty. Their wardrobe department called, they want you to cease and desist on that tired ass knockoff. Two busted-up, basic, bottom-feeding b**ches…
the republican party 2023
like cher sang: gypsies, tramps, thieves, and liars.
On a positive note, Maxwell Alejandro Frost is a Gen Z breath of fresh air in this new Congress!
SarahHuckabee scummy as it gets, it just went after Biden`s speach like a high school mean girl? then went on the homophobic hate rant about the woke not knowing what a women is, trans hate hint, unneeded just shows what her party and state are about, scummy fat hateful nastiness
