Let’s take a snapshot of America right now: We’re winning the war on ISIS, our administration is making great deals both at home and abroad, the job market is rich, taxes are being lowered and the economy is literally soaring to unprecedented heights.
President Trump said he would Make America Great Again and he’s already on the road to success.
But that’s not good enough for Dems. They’d rather interrupt the prosperity for a chance to spark false rage among their loyal sheep…
The list of liberal lawmakers planning on attending President Trump’s highly-anticipated ‘State of the Union’ address is dwindling by the day, with more and more Democratic legislators announcing their plans to boycott the annual speech to both houses of Congress.
According to Fox News, Florida Representative Frederica Wilson is the latest Democrat to publicly protest the President’s address, saying, “For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address.”
“I have no doubts that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises and lies,” she added.
Wilson made national headlines last year when she publicly accused President Trump of “disrespecting” the widow of a fallen soldier during a private phone conversation; claiming the Commander-in-Chief didn’t know the slain service member’s name.
Rep. Wilson now joins a growing list of liberal legislators opting to stay home during the President’s address, including Rep. John Lewis and Rep. Earl Blumenauer.
A growing list of Democrats plan to boycott President Trump’s first State of the Union Address in the wake of his alleged “shithole countries” remark.
So far, House Democrats Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), John Lewis (D-Ga.), Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), and Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) have announced that they will skip the Jan. 30 address, Fox News reports.
It is expected that more announcements are yet to come.
“Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC Friday night. “Someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in? … He doesn’t deserve my attention.”
“The United States of America is represented by the most despicable human being that could possibly ever walk the earth,” she went on. “Not only is he racist, he is an embarrassment for this country.”
Lewis in an interview with MSNBC on Friday similarly condemned Trump as a racist. He said that he cannot in “all good conscience” attend the address “with what [Trump] has said about so many Americans.”
“I just cannot do it. I wouldn’t be honest with myself,” he said.
Rep. Wilson announced on Sunday that she doesn’t plan to attend the event, citing Trump’s “racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations.”
Blumenauer was the first to announce that he would be boycotting the address. He announced his decision Jan. 5 on Twitter, saying that he would rather not listen “to another destructive, divisive speech by Trump.”
All four House Democrats skipped President Trump’s inauguration.
Trump defended himself on Sunday, referring to himself as “the least racist person you will ever interview.”
He has denied ever making the derogatory remark but admitted to using “tough” language during a meeting on immigration at the White House last week.
