Republicans say Kevin McCarthy won't play 'juvenile games' like Nancy Pelosi ... trends now
House Republicans are painting themselves as the 'adults in the room' ahead of President Joe Biden's State of the Union address on Tuesday.
Several lawmakers who spoke to DailyMail.com said they expect House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, who will be sitting behind Biden during the speech, to be a sharp contrast to previous Speaker Nancy Pelosi - who famously ripped up Donald Trump's State of the Union address after he finished speaking in 2020.
Other Republican legislators in the House majority have not been afraid to inject a bit of levity in showing their disapproval of the president, however.
Firebrand Georgia Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene has been spotted walking the halls of Congress with a white balloon - a stark symbol amid GOP criticism over Biden's handling of a suspected Chinese 'spy balloon' that flew over several U.S. states before being finally shot down on Saturday.
She and Colorado Rep. Lauren Boebert loudly interrupted Biden's State of the Union last year over his handling of the Afghanistan withdrawal.
