Democrat House members will ‘boycott’ Trump’s State of the Union speech

In a conspiratorial effort to discredit and humiliate the president, a handful of ultra-liberal lawmakers have declared that they will boycott President Trump’s upcoming State of the Union address.

Rather than serving as a source of inspiration for public protest and civil liberty, however, these legislators have succeeded in outing themselves as fringe extremists on the far left of their own disconnected political party.

State of Disunion

These four unruly Democrats represent the radical left of the Democrat Party, a subset of liberals who are consumed by identity politics and seem to want nothing more than to establish a big government nanny state.  Incidentally, this same Democratic super-minority have consistently displayed behaviors which call into question their grasp of the issues.

Democrat Party Reps. Maxine Waters (Calif.), John Lewis (Ga.) and Earl Blumenauer (Ore.) each announced their intent to avoid the annual presidential speech before Frederica Wilson threw her own sequined hat into the ring Sunday night.

Wilson, who became a household name after feuding with the President regarding disputed versions of a telephone call Trump placed to the widow of a fallen soldier, pointed to the President’s “recent racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations” as justification for staying home on January 30.  The Florida congresswoman explained:

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.

The ringleader of this Trump-crazed quartet is undoubtedly Rep. Waters, whose outspoken opposition to the President borders on derangement. Waters’ intent to boycott the historic address came over the weekend, courtesy of MSNBC:

Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar? 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? I don’t appreciate him and I wouldn’t waste my time sitting in that house listening to what he has to say. He does not deserve my attention.

For Lewis, Trump apparently crossed the line when he allegedly referred to certain third-world countries as “s—hole countries.”

Also appearing on MSNBC, Lewis admitted, “I cannot in all good conscience be in a room with what he has said about so many Americans,” Lewis said on MSNBC Friday. “I just cannot do it. I wouldn’t be honest with myself.”

Blumenauer was the first Democrat to defy tradition and boycott the State of the Union, announcing his abstention even before Trump’s alleged statement about certain African nations and Haiti. In a statement meant to discredit the President, the Oregonian congressman said:

Rather than listening to another destructive, divisive speech by Trump, I will not attend this year’s annual address to Congress. Instead, like I did during his inauguration, I’ll be working at home listening to Oregonians about what they think about the State of the Union.

Democrat Circus

Democrats are practicing other forms of protest during the Trump’s inaugural State of the Union address, as well. Rep. Lois Frankel (D-Fla.) told NBC News, “Some members will be bringing survivors of sexual assault and advocates as their guests.”

It’s a nod to the Golden Globes award show where actors and actresses wore preposterously expensive, all black garb to protest Hollywood’s systemic culture of sexual abuse.

Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.) plans to mimic the Left’s entertainment industry allies by dressing in black and inviting sexual assault victims to the President’s address.

Fortunately, some Democrats ultimately decided against holding “mock trials” with the women who claim to be victims of Trump’s own alleged sexual abuse.

This, and other productions of the Left, only succeed in making a mockery of an event that once portrayed the unity and cohesiveness of the government, but today is considered nothing more than a forum in which to attack the president.
