WASHINGTON, DC (WMBF) - President Obama gave the State of the Union address Tuesday night in Washington.

South Carolina leaders took to social media before and after the speech.

Congressman Tom Rice took Horry County Police Chief Saundra Rhodes as his guest.

Rice tweeted a couple pictures of the two together before the President took the stand.

Sen. Tim Scott tweeted, “The President needs to get serious about helping American families, and stop with the politics.”

“The President continues to rehash old&failed ideas. Time for some new ones, let's get it done,” the senator added on his Twitter account.

In addition, Sen. Lindsey Graham took to Twitter to respond.

“On the foreign policy front, the President is in denial and America is growing weaker under his leadership,” Graham tweeted.

The senator tweeted, “Radical Islam, a term this President and Administration have been reluctant to use, is on the march.”

According to Office of History, Including the President's address Tuesday, there have been a total of 93 in-person Annual Messages/State of the Union Addresses.
