AOC To Boycott State Of The Union, Claims She Doesn’t Want To ‘Legitimize’ President Trump

Last year, numerous female Democrat representatives and senators donned white at the State of the Union address to stand in solidarity against President Donald Trump.

But this year, some might not even show up.

On Tuesday afternoon, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez announced that she will not be attending the SOTU, claiming it would further “legitimize” Trump.

“After much deliberation, I have decided that I will not use my presence at a state ceremony to normalize Trump’s lawless conduct & subversion of the Constitution,” the freshman congresswoman from New York tweeted Tuesday afternoon. “None of this is normal, and I will not legitimize it. Consequently, I will not be attending the State of the Union.”

Other Democrats are looking to make a stand on the issue of healthcare, as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is planning on bringing those suffering from high drug prices like insulin.

“Healthcare, healthcare, healthcare: the three most important issues for America’s working families,” said Pelosi.

Trump is expected to be acquitted by the senate in a vote tomorrow, with some even speculating that it could end up being a bi-partisan acquittal. Some senators, like West Virginia’s Joe Manchin or Alabama’s Doug Jones, have yet to announce which way they will vote.
