Biden praises McCarthy over debt ceiling agreement following weeks of rancor

 June 3, 2023

While a debt ceiling bill was passed on Thursday, it was preceded by weeks of rancor in which House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Joe Biden frequently lashed out at one another.

Yet in a bizarre turn of events, President Joe Biden released a statement on Friday which suggests that he's been a secret admirer of the House speaker.

Biden says he and McCarthy were "respectful of one another"

"I want to commend Speaker McCarthy. You know, he and I and our teams, we were able to get along and get things done," The Hill quoted Biden as saying in a prime time address on Friday from the Oval Office.

"We were straightforward with one another, completely honest with one another, respectful of one another. Both sides operated in good faith, both sides kept their word," the president declared.

" A free people [claim] their rights, as derived from the laws of nature."
