Representative Frederica Wilson, D-Florida added her name to a growing list of Democratic lawmakers who say they are fed up with President Trump. They say they will boycott his State of the Union address at the end of the month.
Wilson was elected in 2010. She made headlines last year for fighting with Trump over his telephone call to the widow of a fallen soldier.
Now she has cited the president’s “recent racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations” for reasons why she wouldn’t be attending the Jan. 30 speech.
Wilson said in a statement on Sunday, “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.”
Your loss Frederica Wilson!
Also, not planning to attend are, Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga.; and Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore.
Waters said on one of the ‘Fake News’ outlets, 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.”
Lewis made his announcement on Friday, saying reports that Trump had referred to some African countries as “shitholes” in a conversation with lawmakers about immigration.
Lewis said to the ‘Fake News’ outlet, MSNBC, “I cannot in all good conscience be in a room with what he has said about so many Americans. I just cannot do it. I wouldn’t be honest with myself.”
Blumenauer had made up his mind that he would be skipping the event before Trump’s remarks became public. He said it would be a waste of time and that he was staying home.
Blumenauer 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.”
On Sunday, the president addressed the people who are accusing him of being a racist.
President Trump told reporters, “I’m not a racist. I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed. That I can tell you.”
The State of the Union boycott isn’t the only protest planned by Democrats.
Wearing black seems to be popular to state your feelings.
Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., said she is planning on wearing black in order to stand in solidarity with victims of sexual harassment.
Other House lawmakers say they are planning on inviting victims of sexual assault to attend the president’s first State of the Union address.
Rep. Lois Frankel told NBC News (Fake News), “Some members will be bringing survivors of sexual assault and advocates as their guests.”
Trump has denied any claims of sexual misconduct.
Personally, I think these people watch too much ‘Fake News’ and speak to the reporters from their outlets.
I will happily watch ‘The State of the Union Address’ by President Trump. Anyone who boycotts it is ignorant.
Make America Great Again!
