This is just pitiful…
The State of the Union address is about to happen and there will be one person who will not be there. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has declared that she will not be attending the State of the Union address writing, “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. None of this is normal, and I will not legitimize it. Consequently, I will not be attending the State of the Union.”
What’s funny is that one of her “Squad” members is planning on going as a form of “resistance.” Rep. Ilhan Omar wrote, “I am attending tonight’s address not to confer any legitimacy on his actions, his statements, or his presidency. I am attending on behalf of all of those targeted by this President to say, ‘We are greater than hate.’ My presence tonight is resistance.”
Ocasio-Cortez thinks she’s big and important, but we will not miss her during the address. Whether she was there or not, would not matter because President Trump will be there, and what he says will be the main focus.
