Marjorie Taylor Greene appears to tee off State of the Union stunt

Marjorie Taylor Greene appeared to tee off a State of the Union stunt on Tuesday, patrolling the halls of Congress with a large white balloon in reference to Republican criticism of Joe Biden over his handling of a flight over US territory by a Chinese surveillance dirigible.

Just an innocent white balloon everyone, the Georgia extremist said hours before Biden's address to Congress, he tried to keep pace with the balloon saga that ended when it was shot down off the Carolinas on Saturday.

Greene didn't discuss the Pentagon disclosure that three Chinese balloons had passed over the US during the presidency of Donald Trump, only for the Trump administration not to spot them.

Biden's national security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters earlier improvements to surveillance under Biden increased our capacity to be able to detect things that the Trump administration was unable to detect, said a New Jersey Democrat, She has to do something with all that hot air. Greene is a conspiracy theorist and controversialist. She was ejected in 2020 from committees for threatening behavior in 2021 but was restored to key panels last month as an ally of Kevin McCarthy, the new Republican speaker.

US officials have stated that Biden wanted to shoot the balloon down three days before it was eventually popped with a missile, but was persuaded not to order the operation while it was over land, and could cause injury or destruction on the ground when it is brought down, according to US officials.

China claims the balloon was for civilian meteorological research. Antony Blinken, the secretary of state, cancelled a trip for talks after it stoked a confrontation with Beijing.

McCarthy praised Greene reportedly told Republicans not to plan any stunts in response to Biden's speech.
