Maxine Waters to skip Trump's State of the Union

Maxine Waters to skip Trump's State of the Union Maxine Waters to skip Trump's State of the Union

During an appearance on MSNBC's "All In with Chris Hayes", Waters was asked if she will attend the SOTU.

As for boycotting the State of the Union, it appears that Lewis may have come up with an ingenious tactic to avoid attending burdensome political events when Republicans are at the helm. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), who was there at the time, said he did. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who was also in attendance, seemed to confirm in his own statement Friday. I've called him a racist, deplorable, despicable, adding to what others are calling him--a moron, ignorant, on and on and on. "And I wish I could say he didn't have the courage of his convictions, because I don't know if he has any". Waters said on MSNBC. "He does not deserve my attention".

Reid also asked if Congresswoman Waters would be attending Trump's State of the Union address.

Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) said he will skip Trump's address and work in his home state instead.

Blumenauer said he would be skipping the event before Trump's remarks became public, but said it would be a waste of time and that he was staying home.

"I have called him what I know him to be for a long time", Rep. Waters replied.

In a tweet on Friday, Trump said the language he used was "tough", but maintained the vulgar comments attributed to him were "not the language used".

"Donald Trump is a racist and indecent man with no good values who is woefully unfit and undeserving of the office in which he serves". "Members of Congress have a responsibility to the American people and our democracy to impeach him".

Trump is scheduled to deliver the annual address January 30.
