The left-wing American Civil Liberties Union slammed President Trump’s “hateful” and “divisive” State of the Union address on Wednesday, pathetically claiming his repeated use of the word “America” was “exclusionary” to “vulnerable communities.”
The group’s National Political Director issued a scathing statement hours after Trump’s remarks, saying he was “shocked” at the language used by the Commander-in-Chief as he addressed the American people.
“Tonight, President Trump said the word ‘America’ more than 80 times in his speech. Yet, after a divisive first year, we hear and feel how exclusionary that ‘America’ is, with policies that have harmed so many vulnerable American communities,” said the statement.
“In particular, the immigration plan put forth by Trump would hold Dreamers hostage to his demands for a harmful border wall and an even larger mass deportation force. We are at this crossroads because of the president’s deeply destructive ideas fomented by his nativist allies and divisive rhetoric,” he added.
The ACLU routinely attacks the President and his administration over their “anti-illegal-immigrant policies,” fighting the White House on DACA, border security, and the ‘travel ban.’
DEMS BOYCOTT: Leading Democrats to DITCH Trump’s ‘State of the Union’ Speech
The list of liberal lawmakers planning on attending President Trump’s highly-anticipated ‘State of the Union’ address is dwindling by the day, with more and more Democratic legislators announcing their plans to boycott the annual speech to both houses of Congress.
According to Fox News, Florida Representative Frederica Wilson is the latest Democrat to publicly protest the President’s address, saying, “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.”
“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,” she added.
Wilson made national headlines last year when she publicly accused President Trump of “disrespecting” the widow of a fallen soldier during a private phone conversation; claiming the Commander-in-Chief didn’t know the slain service member’s name.
Rep. Wilson now joins a growing list of liberal legislators opting to stay home during the President’s address, including Rep. John Lewis and Rep. Earl Blumenauer.
HOLLYWEIRD: Anti-Trump Celebrities HOST COUNTER State of the Union
Hollywood celebrities and liberal elites turned out for a counter State of the Union Monday evening, offering a blistering “response” to the President’s joint address to Congress and the American people one day before he delivers the speech.
According to Fox News, the star-studded event -dubbed the People’s State of the Union- was hosted by radical left-wing actor Mark Ruffalo, who called for all anti-Trump activists to join the “resistance” movement against the President’s “racist” agenda.
“We’re going to set our sights to continue that work in the next year, and strengthen our bonds and commitments to each other, for long after the Trump era comes to its rightful end,” said Ruffalo. “We ain’t stopping with Trump, OK?”
Hollywood documentarian Michael Moore also slammed Trump and his supporters, saying “We must remove and replace the system and the culture that gave us Trump in the first place […] We must also cleanse our American soul of our white male privilege.”
The three-hour-long anti-Trump event was hosted by far-left organizations such as Planned Parenthood and the Women’s March.
