Liberals are showing how much they respect the will of the American people.
A Boston-area Democrat Congresswoman says she won’t attend Trump’s inauguration. It doesn’t matter that Republicans attended Obama’s inauguration. It doesn’t matter that most Democrats are attending this one.
Katherine Clark won’t.
“In a break from tradition and from the rest of the Massachusetts congressional delegation, Representative Katherine Clark plans to boycott the upcoming inauguration of Republican President-elect Donald Trump as a form of ceremonial protest.
Clark, whose district includes many of the northern and western suburbs of Boston, said she believes that attending the inauguration would “normalize” Trump’s promotion of ‘bigoted, misogynist, anti-Semitic, and racist claims.’
By not attending the Jan. 20 swearing-in, Clark would be flouting years of precedent. In interviews with other members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation, a wall to wall collection of liberal Democrats, some of Clark’s colleagues said they felt it was important to attend the ceremony out of respect for the American democratic tradition.”
And she’s not the only one. Clark joins another Democrat Representative who won’t attend.
“Clark joins Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.), who said in December he would not attend the ceremony, citing Trump’s ‘hatred, bigotry and prejudice.'”
It’s like they’re reading from the same set of notes.
Whatever you think of Trump and his policies, he’s done one big thing by winning: He showed all Americans how unprincipled and selfish Democrats really are.
Share so everyone knows what sore losers these Democrats are!
