posted by Hannity Staff - 2.05.20

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi suddenly tore President Trump’s State of the Union Address in half following his annual speech Tuesday night; tossing the papers aside just seconds after the Commander-in-Chief closed his remarks.

“As President Trump’s State of the Union speech ended, Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped up her copy of his address, capping a decidedly chilly confrontation between the two,” posted the New York Times on social media.

ANOTHER NO SHOW: As Impeachment Fantasy Collapses, Al Green Says He Won’t Attend State of the Union

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.04.20

Impeachment-obsessed Congressman Al Green confirmed Tuesday his plan to boycott Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address; saying he won’t attend a speech delivered by a “bigoted President.”

“Because of an impeached, reckless, ruthless, lawless, shameless, corrupt, & unapologetically bigoted president – who is still engaging in a coverup, the state of the House, the state of the Senate, and the #StateOfTheUnion are divided. I will NOT attend,” posted Green on social media.

 

Three other House Democrats announced their decision to boycott Trump’s address this week.

“A third House Democrat announced plans on Monday to boycott President Trump‘s Tuesday State of the Union address, which will take place a day before the Senate is expected to acquit the president in his impeachment trial,” reports The Hill. “Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), who also skipped Trump’s previous State of the Union addresses, said that he will not be attending the speech on Tuesday.”

“I have chosen not to dignify Trump’s parade of lies about health care, his persistent exaggeration, and his personal attacks with my attendance at this year’s State of the Union Address. His appalling performances each day continue to justify that decision, and I have no doubt tomorrow night will be more of the same — even possibly worse,” Blumenauer said in a statement.

The other two Democrats include Representatives Steven Cohen and Frederica Wilson.

AOC NO SHOW: Ocasio-Cortez Says She Won’t ‘Use Her Presence to Legitimize’ Trump’s Address

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.04.20

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez became the fifth House Democrat to boycott President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday; saying she won’t “use her presence to legitimize” his “subversion of the Constitution.”

“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,” posted AOC on social media.

It’s unclear of other members of the so-called “Squad” will also boycott the event.
