Look at Me! Two Clown Democrats to Boycott Trump Inauguration

Posted by on Jan 06, 2017 at 7:43 am

When nobody has a clue who you are, you do anything for attention. While the world tunes in for the Donald Trump inauguration, a couple of House Democrats will be having their own pity party.

Two House Democrats are planning to boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration to protest insulting comments Trump made during the campaign about women, minorities and other groups.

Reps. Katherine Clark of Massachusetts and Luis Gutierrez of Illinois said they are skipping the Jan. 20 ceremony at the Capitol as a matter of conscience.

“I could not look at my wife, my daughters or my grandson in the eye if I sat there and attended as if everything that candidate Donald Trump had said about women, Latinos, African-Americans, Muslims … is OK or erased from my memory,” Gutierrez said in a statement Thursday.

Clark said she respects the presidency and supports the peaceful transfer of power but that families in her district “are fearful that the anti-woman, anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim and divisive promises that drove the Trump campaign will become the policies affecting the health and safety of every American.”

Clark and Gutierrez both said they had hoped that Trump would use the transition period to unify the country but believe that has not happened.

“After discussions with hundreds of my constituents, I do not feel that I can contribute to the normalization of the president-elect’s divisive rhetoric by participating in the inauguration,” Clark said.

    I remember when little louie had his house listed as a vacant lot so he didn’t have to pay taxes. Now we finding out he payed his wife and daughters over $300,000 in tax dollars for no show work.

    Gutierrez is one of the biggest open-border advocates in Congress and belongs in jail.

    Ultimately, their decision to skip this affair does not matter at all. You cannot force your fellow man to have decorum or celebrate a peaceful transfer of power, even if the election results were not what you hoped they would be. The media’s decision to keep this (non) story alive, both congratulatory or derisive takes, just gives them the attention they crave.
