A California congresswoman announced she has something more important to do than attend Trump’s inauguration.
She will be “preparing the resistance” instead. The resistance? This ain’t star wars. Resistance?
Way left democrat Barbara Lee announced another failed liberal boycott in a statement:
“I will not be celebrating or honoring an incoming president who rode racism, sexism, xenophobia and bigotry to the White House.”
He doesn’t want you there anyway Barbara.
“Donald Trump ran one of the most divisive and prejudiced campaigns in modern history.”
“He began his campaign by insulting Mexican immigrants, pledging to build a wall between the United States and Mexico and then spent a year and a half denigrating communities of color and normalizing bigotry. He called women pigs, stoked Islamophobia, and attacked a Gold Star family. He mocked a disabled reporter and appealed to people’s worst instincts. I cannot in good conscience attend an inauguration that would celebrate this divisive approach to governance.”
“Donald Trump has proven that his administration will normalize the most extreme fringes of the Republican Party,” Lee said. “On Inauguration Day, I will not be celebrating. I will be organizing and preparing for resistance.”
Good luck Barbara, you will most definitely need it.
