President Joe Biden began his State of the Union address recognizing the courage of Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and the bravery of the Ukrainian people as Russia’s invasion advances.
Congressional Democrats and Republicans applauded Tuesday night as they stood to show solidarity with the citizens of Ukraine. The unity did not last for long, however. As Biden continued his speech, it appeared as though he was working his way through a far-left checklist.
“The onslaught of state laws targeting transgender Americans and their families is wrong,” Biden said, presumably referring to state laws intended to prevent men from competing on women’s sports teams.
In 2021, 37 states introduced bills to prohibit biological males from competing in girls or women’s sports. Nine states passed such legislation, including Idaho, Montana, Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Florida.
Biden also said that to move forward in America, we must protect “access to health care” and abortion rights. But abortion is not health care, and does not advance the American values of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
The Daily Signal fact-checked many of Biden’s claims and noted some of his blunders.
Today, on the “Problematic Women” podcast, we give a full rundown of the best and worst moments of Biden’s speech.
Also on today’s show, we share an update on the situation in Ukraine. Plus, it’s Women’s History Month and we’re celebrating by honoring two of the women who have played a significant role in our lives. And as always, we’ll crown our Problematic Woman of the Week.
Enjoy the show!
