AOC And Her Friends Are Boycotting The SOTU Tonight

Democrats are the best at whining and crying when they don’t get their way.

To put the icing on the cake, notable Dems, AOC, and Maxine Waters have issued statements via their Twitter accounts that they are boycotting the State of the Union Address tonight.

Great! It’s a free country, and your approval ratings are in the gutter anyhow.

Occasio-Cortez wrote earlier today,

“After much deliberation, I have decided that I will not use my presence at a state ceremony to normalize Trump’s lawless conduct & subversion of the Constitution,” Ocasio-Cortez said Tuesday.

“None of this is normal, and I will not legitimize it. Consequently, I will not be attending the State of the Union,” the freshman congresswoman announced.

“This is a deeply personal decision for each member to make, and a choice I did not take lightly. I will be hopping on Instagram Live later this evening to connect with my constituents and follow up with their questions about #SOTU,”

Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley will also be absent this evening,

The State of the Union is hurting because of the occupant of the White House, who consistently demonstrates contempt for the American people, contempt for Congress & contempt for our constitution. I cannot in good conscience attend tonight’s sham #SOTU

After seeing all these other top Dems, Maxine Waters would not be outdone, and she threw her hat in the ring as well.

To think that I would attend the #SOTU to hear the message of an IMPEACHED president is a thought that in no way would be consistent w/ my fight and struggle against this dishonorable president. I will certainly NOT be there!

In all 8 Representatives are officially boycotting. Bernie Sanders will not be attending, because he is campaigning tonight in New Hampshire.
