Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) AKA the ‘Rodeo Clown‘ said she would not be attending President Trump’s State of the Union address.
Other black Democrats who won’t be attending Trump’s SOTU speech include Rep. Maxine Waters and Rep. John Lewis.
In a statement to the Tampa Bay Times, Rep. Frederica says she will not be attending Trump’s SOTU address because of his “recent racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations.”
Wilson also said this is the first SOTU address she will be skipping since she began serving in the House of Representatives.
Via the Tampa Bay Times:
“During his disappointing and destructive first year in office, Mr. Trump has demeaned the presidency at every opportunity and cast doubt on our nation’s standing as a global leader. The United States’ reputation is smoldering in the ashes of his recent racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations. Many of his proposed domestic policies are harmful to people of color, low-income communities, and the middle class. It would be an embarrassment to be seen with him at a forum that under any other president would be an honor to attend.”
Media was set ablaze last Thursday after President Trump reportedly responded to the ‘gang of 6’ immigration proposal with some fiery language.
President Trump went on a tweet storm Friday morning and said the reports of the language he used is fake news. It didn’t go down the way it’s being reported. Shocker!
POTUS denied having said anything derogatory about Haitians.
“Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!” Tweeted Trump.
CNN’s Fake Tapper admitted Friday morning in a tweetstorm that reporters twisted President Trump’s words. Imagine our shock!
RINO hack Senator Lindsey Graham is digging in his heels and insisting Trump called 3rd world countries ‘sh*tholes’.
It’s 2018 and Port-au-Prince, Haiti still doesn’t have a sewer system so what would you call that??
