Arkansas governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders (R.) will shine a spotlight on the Democrat Party’s radicalization under the Biden administration during her response to the president’s State of the Union address Tuesday evening, according to talking points provided to the Washington Free Beacon.
Sanders will discuss the Democrat Party’s attempts to mainstream “woke” cultural priorities and contrast it to the Republican Party, which stands for “safe communities, jobs, and freedom from the woke mob in state capitals,” according to Sanders’s office.
“The choice is no longer between right or left,” Sanders will explain. “The choice is between normal or crazy.”
Sanders, the youngest U.S. governor, will serve as a stark contrast to President Joe Biden, the oldest U.S. president to ever sit in office. Her response will emphasize national security priorities at a time when China is sending spy balloons into U.S. territory, Iran is marching toward a nuclear weapon, and Russia wages a full-scale war on American ally Ukraine. “It’s time for a new generation of leadership,” according to Sanders’s office.
Sanders will highlight that Biden and Democrats in Congress are “unwilling to defend our border, defend our skies, and defend our people,” according to the topics provided by Sanders’s office. Biden, the governor’s office says, “is unfit to serve as commander in chief.”
Biden in his own address to the nation is expected to focus on “ending cancer as we know it, delivering on the sacred obligation to veterans, tackling the mental health crisis, and beating the opioid and overdose epidemic,” according to a White House fact sheet. Sanders’s speech will begin immediately following Biden’s speech.
