Oh, boo-hoo. These people need to grow up a little. They are representing the people of the United States? Thank goodness they don’t have a majority.
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.”
