Oregon Rep. Earl Blumenauer says he will not attend President Trump's State of the Union address tomorrow:

"Just like in past years, I plan to skip a speech that will be filled with lies, deception and divisiveness

... I refuse to be witness to his continued antics.”

Would be better if they showed up and yelled "Liar!" every time Trump told one.  There is precedent set by Republicans during Pres. Obama SOU.  That Republican is still in Congress.

It wouldn't be better politically for Dems to respond to Trump's antics by acting like Trump. 

Yea,  that would please the folks in on the coast and other blue-blue states but Dems already 'own' those few states.

"If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation." - Trump's SOTU, 2019

 

"I believe the time has come to bring that investigation and the other investigations of this matter to an end. One year of Watergate is enough." - Nixon's SOTU, 1974

Members of Congress took an oath to the Constitution.

We have a duty to conduct oversight over the other two branches of government.

Democrats in the House, unlike Republicans last term, will not abdicate our duty.

We WILL investigate @realDonaldTrump and his associates. #sotuSOTU_2019.png

I meant to watch it but I got all caught up in alphabetizing my paper clips.

It will be the usual Trump lies and exaggerations. Sometimes it take a

guy like Donny to remind me what a scummy and slimy country the USA!

USA! often is.

Tepid applause from GOP on Trump's promise to ignite a new nuclear arms race that could lead us to a nuclear holocaust.

 

Yet, there was still applause.

Possibly his most dangerous statement of the evening.

Congress must step in, immediately. #SOTUSOTU_2019.png

With his attitudes on Race, women, religious and cultural diversity and other social issues, trump has sought to take us back more than 60 years.

But if the GOP lets him start another nuclear arms race, I hope you liked the movie "Jurassic Park " because that's how far we're going to go back to with or without the dinosaurs.

I tried to watch it, but... Two deliberate hrs of Trump, geez, 
I started rolling my eyes when he started talking about "compromise"...:rolleyes:
I flipped back to Viva Zapata! sometime after the following.... and then fell asleep.

When I awoke, it was all over (thank god) and now I'll just review the "fact checker" rehash of what I was spared.

I know that I really should take him all in (to really hear it all from the horses **** err mouth, so to speak). But there is just so much (too much) of him to take. 
Like, I couldn't really stand watching him before he entered the political arena, and now, he's everywhere and all the time.  :(:angry:

Sorry, should have noted that it was meant as a joke.
