Democrats are planning sweeping protests during President Trump’s State of the Union address, set to take place on January 30.
One protest will see liberal Congresswomen wearing all black. A Congressman from Oregon has already said he won’t be in attendance.
From The Hill:
Democrats are already plotting ways to protest during President Trump’s State of the Union later this month.
At least one lawmaker plans to boycott the speech entirely, with more Democrats possibly opting to skip the event as well. Female Democrats including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) plan to wear black to show solidarity with victims of sexual misconduct, just as Hollywood stars did at an awards show over the weekend.
More from Free Beacon:
Rep. Jackie Speier (D., Calif.) and a group of female Democratic lawmakers are planning to wear black to President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address later this month in order to stand in solidarity with the #TimesUp and other movements shining a light on sexual assault and harassment.
Speier announced on Twitter she and her fellow Democratic congresswomen in the House of Representatives were “calling on” all lawmakers–”men & women, Democrats & Republicans –to wear black to the State of the Union address at the end of this month.
My colleagues and I in the @HouseDemWomen are calling on our fellow MoCs – women & men, Democrats & Republicans – to wear black to this year's #SOTU in solidarity w/survivors of sexual harassment/violence in Hollywood, politics, the military, academia, etc. #TIMESUP #MeToo

Democrats never let a good tragedy (like sexual harrassment) go to waste.
When will they grow up!
