On Friday, U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville (R-Auburn) took to the airwaves to defend his Alabama colleague U.S. Sen. Katie Britt (R-Montgomery), who offered the Republican response to President Joe Biden's State of the Union address on Thursday.

Following her delivery, Britt had been the target of critics, both from the right and left.

Tuberville called his colleague "a very good choice," noting the difficulty of the response duties.

"Well, considering the circumstances I thought I thought she did very well," he said during an appearance on Newsmax TV on Friday. "And you know, she's a mom. She's a housewife. She's around people at a young age. And if you just see what the left is doing, they're going after families. They're going after separating families taking the data out of the family. They're going after kids in the schools, not allowing them to, to learn to read, write and do arithmetic. They're being indoctrinated and all these, these pronouns and all these books that are in the library about sexuality."

"I thought Katie was a very good choice," Tuberville continued. "She did a very good job. It's a hard job to do to come out and, and criticize, but she had one point to make, you know, she didn't have enough time to go and you know, criticize everything Joe Biden and talked about. She had the narrative of talking about family, and that's what Republicans are for. Democrats are against family. So, I thought it was a good narrative. I thought Katie did a good job. And, and again, it's very hard to do, and unfortunately, people are going to criticize people that that do anything in public."
