Nancy Pelosi Says Boebert and Marjorie Taylor Greene Should 'Just Shut Up'

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said at a Thursday press conference Representatives Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert, who heckled President Joe Biden during his State of the Union address, should "just shut up."

Pelosi said she was echoing Senator Lindsey Graham's reaction, as he appeared to mutter the same thing as the representatives shouted during Biden's speech, according to video circulating on Twitter.

The last time a member of the House of Representatives interrupted the president—in September 2009, when South Carolina Congressman Joe Wilson yelled "You lie" during a joint address to Congress by Barack Obama—the House issued a resolution of disapproval to reprimand him, but it is unclear whether the current House plans to do the same for Boebert and Greene.

Pelosi's comments come after the two controversial lawmakers yelled several times during the address. While Biden was speaking about immigration, they both began to chant "build the wall," though the chant quickly died down and was barely audible on the public broadcast, Newsweek previously reported.

Boebert angered more people shortly after when the president began to speak of military members' exposure to burn pits, which create "toxic smoke."

"And they come home—many of the world's fittest and best trained warriors in the world—never the same: headaches, numbness, dizziness, a cancer that would put them in a flag-draped coffin. I know," Biden said.

Before he could continue, Boebert could be heard yelling "You put them in. Thirteen of them," likely referencing the 13 U.S. military members who died in a bombing during the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan last year. This brought on a chorus of boos, as Biden was in the about to say one of those soldiers exposed to the smoke was his son, Major Beau Biden.

"We don't know for sure if a burn pit was the cause of his brain cancer, or the diseases of so many of our troops, but I'm committed to finding out everything we can," he continued.

After Wilson yelled "you lie" at then-President Obama as he spoke in front of Congress, he issued an apology, which Obama accepted.

"While I disagree with the president's statement, my comments were inappropriate and regrettable," Wilson said in a statement at the time. "I extend sincere apologies to the president for this lack of civility."

The House then issued the resolution of disapproval, calling his outburst a "breach of decorum" that "degraded the proceedings of the joint session, to the discredit of the House."

However, Boebert was not apologetic in a Twitter post she made after the address.

"When Biden said flag-draped coffins I couldn't stay silent," she wrote. "I told him directly he did it. He put 13 in there. Our heroic servicemen and women deserve so much better."

According to The Hill, Boebert and Greene's fellow Republicans have mostly not made any comment on their heckling, though Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said he thinks "civil behavior is a good idea in Congress."
