Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., heckled President Biden during Tuesday’s State of the Union just before he recalled his late son Beau Biden’s brain cancer.⁠

Biden was in the middle of calling on Congress to pass legislation to help Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans suffering from exposure to toxic burn pits that were used to incinerate waste, with troops often using jet fuel as an accelerant.⁠

“When they came home, many of the world’s fittest and best trained warriors were never the same: Headaches. Numbness. Dizziness,” Biden said. “A cancer that would put them in a flag-draped coffin.”⁠

“You put them there!” Boebert yelled, according to reporters in the House Chamber.⁠

Biden briefly paused before continuing his speech.⁠

“I know. One of those soldiers was my son Major Beau Biden,” the president said. “We don’t know for sure if a burn pit was the cause of his brain cancer, or the diseases of so many of our troops. But I’m committed to finding out everything we can.”⁠

Beau Biden died in 2015 of brain cancer at age 46.⁠

Last year, Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., chairman of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee chairman, introduced bipartisan legislation that would streamline the VA’s review process to recognize toxic exposure as a cost of war.⁠

The bill, the Honoring Our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act, passed out of committee last summer but has yet to receive a full vote in the House.⁠

On Monday, the Biden administration released a statement calling on Congress to pass the legislation.⁠

Boebert’s tenure in Congress has been heavily focused on opposing Biden.⁠
