At least 8 House Democrat members plan to boycott the State Of The Union speech by the president Tuesday night.
The eight house members have reasons for their absences that range from Trumps’ shithole comments about Africa and Haiti to Donald Trumps’ lack of respect for practically everyone and everything, not team Trump. The eight House members will likely not be alone in their boycott of the State Of The Union speech Tuesday night. Rep. Cedric Richmond, Chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus has said that his group has also discussed boycotting the speech. There is also a #boycottstateoftheunion campaign circulating on Twitter that looks to be picking up more and more steam as the days go by. All of this taking place threatens to possibly make the “ratings” president’s speech, the worst rated State Of The Union address in history. On a good note for the president, Mike Pence and Paul Ryan will surely be sitting behind the president smiling and cheering every word with a mouth full of presidential nuts again. That should be a welcomed boost for the presidents’ very fragile ego. Will you be watching Tuesday night?
