Horrific Treatment of Gold Star Father at the State of the Union Address

Thursday evening saw the distressing arrest of Steven Nikoui, the grieving father of a Marine who tragically lost his life during the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan. His anguish boiled over as he shouted from a House gallery during President Biden's State of the Union address.
