Democrats ramp up efforts to boycott Trump’s State of the Union address

Wilson, who was elected in 2010 and made headlines last year for fighting with Trump over his telephone call to the widow of a fallen soldier, 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.

“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,” Wilson said in a statement late Sunday. “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.”

Wilson joins Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif.; Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga.; and Rep. Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., in boycotting the event.

    So she is not attending because of “recent racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations” as her reason. Will some one tell this racist woman that these comments were heard by only ONE person in the room? Not a single other person who was a the meeting heard these comment, but she believe Durbin because it fits with her prejudice. 2 senators and many others have stated they did NOT hear what Durbin did, and the DHS Secretary stated UNDER OATH that she did not hear it, but this racist believes it because it fits her narrative and the tactic of the democrats to keep the President form doing his job. Well, she and her co-conspirators have failed. Even thought the media refuses to acknowledge the facts, the economy is booming, unemployment is low and black unemployment is at historic lows. Not bad for a racist who hates blacks. (and no matter how hard you try, Obama can not get credit for the turn around in the economy)
