They won’t be alone.
A third liberal, Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, will also not be in attendance.
Not content to simply dress in black and drag along alleged sexual assault victims as props, African-American Dems will be no shows at the State of the Union address. Rep. John Lewis of a crime-ridden shithole district in Georgia has chosen to be the leader of the stomps foot brigade.
More from Washington Examiner:
“I cannot in all the conscience be in a room with what he has said about so many Americans,” Lewis told MSNBC host Katy Tur when explaining why he will not attend. “I just cannot do it. I wouldn’t be honest with myself.”
Lewis’ comments come just a day after it was reported that Trump called some nations “shithole countries” during a White House meeting with lawmakers Thursday. As the lawmakers and Trump discussed a potential bipartisan immigration deal, Trump started to discuss immigration from African nations and asked why the U.S. is “having all these people from shithole countries come here?”
Talk about disrespectful.
All members of Congress should be in attendance with very few exceptions, such as injury or family emergency, for example.
Lewis is an embarrassment. This is wrong!
