Rep. Chip Roy defended Sen. Katie Britt after her poorly received State of the Union response, criticizing Republican leadership for not properly preparing her.

Roy said leadership, which he called “SwampGOP”, threw Britt “to the wolves” by having her give the important speech without sufficient experience, as she had not yet given a Senate floor speech.

Britt was criticized for using a misleading story about human trafficking during the Biden administration, which was factually incorrect.

GOP leadership is “Uniparty, establishment, swamp, beltway elite, ruling class… pick your poison,” he said. “All true.”

Roy slammed the party for failing to fact-check Britt’s speech and protect her from making an error.

No one was “fact-checking the speech to help protect her from making an error with an outdated anecdote & thus allow radical progressive democrats to make THAT the story rather than their dangerous, purposeful open border policies endangering Americans,” Roy said.

He told members not to sit silently as Britt faced criticism.

“Want change? PRIMARIES,” he said.

The White House also took Britt to task over misleading immigration comments.

“Instead of telling more debunked lies to justify opposing the toughest bipartisan border legislation in modern history, Senator Britt should stop choosing human smugglers and fentanyl traffickers over our national security and the Border Patrol Union,” White House Spokesman Andrew Bates said.

A GOP strategist called Britt’s speech “one of our biggest disasters ever.” Roy argued leadership should have better prepared Britt rather than allowing her speech to be the story.
