According to a new report, Mike Johnson apologized to Joe Biden for his eye roll during his State of the Union.

The report states that Johnson pulled Biden aside to “apologize for the eye-roll memes that went around the world.”

Real Clear Politics reported:

This past March, Johnson felt he owed Biden an apology. Seated just over the president’s shoulder during the State of the Union address, the speaker couldn’t mask his expressions of exhaustion and exasperation as Biden laid into Republicans. The two next met on Capitol Hill for the Friends of Ireland luncheon where Johnson toasted Biden as “America’s most famous Irishman.” On loan from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, his pint glass was the same one Reagan used during a 1984 visit to Ireland. The Guinness the Southern Baptist speaker drank was non-alcoholic.

Johnson pulled Biden aside to “apologize for the eye-roll memes that went around the world.” The president laughed, then told the speaker he was glad Johnson was better behaved than Nancy Pelosi had been during the speeches of his predecessor: “I’m just grateful you didn’t rip my speech up.” The speaker replied, “Well, Mr. President, don’t think my friends back home didn’t want me to light it on fire.”

According to Breitbart, Johnson’s office did not deny the apology.

Breitbart reported:

Johnson’s office did not deny his apology when Breitbart News asked for comment.

The apology is the latest revelation that suggests Johnson’s sympathies lie with the establishment and Washington, DC, elites, rather than with the voters who elected him to Congress and the Republican conference.

Just last week, Biden steamrolled Johnson by allowing Democrats to, in effect, seize control of the House, thereby allowing Biden’s agenda to sail through Congress. It was a sore reminder of how Republicans often decline to use their capacity to push conservative policies popular with the base. Democrats, in contrast, often appear to use their power without qualms.
