President Joe Biden's State of the Union speech on Tuesday night was probably one of the best I've ever seen. Of course, Republicans didn't like being called out after some of them suggested sunsetting Social Security and Medicare. It was a successful address as the President got Republicans and Democrats to agree to leave Social Security alone. It was masterful.

So, controversial Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert needed to come up with something to take issue with regarding Biden's speech. She is super mad that Biden closed down schools amid the pandemic when Trump was in office. Boebert's tweet was fact-checked by the Twitter community. Trump, at the time, left the decision up to the Governors. Biden wasn't in power in 2020.

Twitter users weighed in.

How does someone like her get elected to begin with? And she was just reelected.
