These 20 Democrats Are Sitting Out Trump’s Inauguration

by Phillip Stucky
January 17, 2017

The number of Democratic lawmakers boycotting President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration has increased to 20, according to a Monday report from Fox News.

The most recent dropouts came as a result of the spat Trump had with Rep. John Lewis over the weekend on Twitter, according to Rep. Ted Lieu of California.

“For me, the personal decision not to attend [the] inauguration is quite simple: Do I stand with Donald Trump, or do I stand with John Lewis? I am standing with John Lewis,” Lieu said in a prepared statement.

Lewis called Trump’s win “illegitimate,” in an interview with NBC News Friday, a move that prompted Trump to fire back a response on Twitter. “Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad!” Trump wrote in a pair of tweets early Saturday morning.

    Trump must be a racist S.O.B. the picture I saw of these twenty, all are black. Either that or all twenty are racist S.O.B.s.

      1. snowyriver says:

        I have seen a chart since that shows about half colored and half Caucasian. The original picture I saw was a case of fake news,, I apologize for being sucked in.

    Lucky them. They have a voice. We get to puke because OBAMA is coming to Rancho Mirage California. Everyone that lives here we know is stocking up on RAID. Zitka virus and other OBAMA deiseases.

  • Michael Spinelli says:

    Obama’s presidency has been a obvious disaster for the Democratic party. Since his election, they’ve lost control of the House, the Senate, and the presidency. In addition, a large majority of the state legislatures are now under control of Republicans. There are 33 Republican Governors to 16 Democrat. These 20 Democrats will eventually be defending their absence during the next election. They’ll have to explain why they insist of being Democrats first and Americans second.

    I hope and pray that President Trump follows through with his efforts to restore pride in America and strength in the economy and improve the lives for all of us including ALL minorities. Hopefully they will ultimately recognize that Donald Trump is their president when they see that the media, Hollywood and leftists were wrong about him. It’s vital that they see that conservative values are good for the country and will improve their lives and not the lies that progressives have been selling them for generations. It’s their greatest fear.

    After the elections, and in the final analysis we are
    all suposed to revert to being AMER I Cans!

  • James Maxwell says:

    For then to say home is nothing new they have not done anything the past
    8 years or so except collect pay checks at the expense of the Voters in their
    districts. They are washed up has been who, for the most part, have not
    done any thing for their voters in a very long time except take about what
    they did in the past. Prime example is John Lewis who to his credit did
    march with Dr Martin Luther King and he did get attacked and beaten by
    by Democrats while doing so. But those times have passed but apparently
    not his brain damage since he now blame it on Republicans. He has
    forgotten does not comprehend that he is a member of the same party
    the denied Black and others their right for a very long time.

  • mudguy1 says:

    Keep it up and there will less of these un-Americans to protest in 2018.

  • mike cook says:

    The ones that are sitting it out are more Socialist than Americans anyway. Eff them. I am looking forward to Trumps IRS going after “I owe millions Sharpton” and IRS employees who owe millions more in unpaid taxes.
    If Trump shrinks the Federal workforce, their will be crying and claims of racism, because more than half the DC federal employees are black.

  • justinwachin says:

    Many of these 20 will probably complain about how Washington has become so gridlocked and toxic. This is a perfect example of the type of behavior that has got us to that point.

    I’m not sure either party wants to create a scenario where the losing party boycotts the inauguration. If such a move becomes common it will not be too long until Congress will be in session while the president is being inaugurated outside the building.

    Part of being an adult is you sometimes set aside petty differences for the sake of what is best for the group as a whole.

    Kentucky’s lone Democrat in Washington has announced he will not attend the inauguration. Hopefully this guy will be retired by the voters in 2018.

    I guess we can add 20 names to the list of demonrats that we can work to get rid of come time for their reelection!

  • Mys77 says:

    Demoncrats don’t even have respect for their position in government! This is their job! They are paid to be there to represent all of the citizens, not just some! These people are weak minded cowards, disgusting and yeah I will say it, hypocrits…and racially motivated.

    1. dtm says:

      Represent all citizens? You mean like Trump has? Racially motivated? You want to play the race card? Funny, I don’t recall you pulling that out regarding Republicans and their treatment of Obama…Wonder why.

      1. gvette says:

        Obamhole, and the wookie were the worst raciests that there has ever been. You can’t hear much, with your head in your ass.

        1. dtm says:

          Care to provide data to support that?

          1. gvette says:

            I have ears, and i’ve listened to them, just like everyone else, but you, I’d say!

          2. dtm says:

            Great! Then you shouldn’t have any problems providing a link or two showing Obama making racist comments.

            Or are you just making this up?

          3. gvette says:

            Here’s one, there are more. I’m not going to spend a lot of time on you. You seem to be an ignorant DemonRAT.

          4. dtm says:

            Good Lord…you’re using a youtube as your source? You didn’t go far in school, did you?

            Aside from reading from a book, please tell me how the second example (asked about Don Imus blatantly racist remarks) is any way racist?

            DemonRat? Wow, how original. You really got me with that one. Now don’t lie, tell us how long it took you to come up with that zinger. I’m guessing at least a half hour.

            If you were any less intelligent we’d have to water you three times a week.

          5. gvette says:

            Those are his words. What the fuck difference does it make where his words come from. Key words being, his words. Then again, being a DemonRAT, I know you’re not to bright!

          6. dtm says:

            And his words are racist how? What he said about Imus was….right, not racist. Reading from his book? Not racist.

            Your school system failed you.

            And it’s “too bright” not “to bright”, genius…

          7. Askjrsk says:

            O my word. Not anti Christian. Not anti white. Wow to be a snowflake!

          8. Askjrsk says:

            Kidding? Ha ha

          9. dtm says:

            Great insight…

      2. Askjrsk says:

        Huh? What are you on crooked HILLARY CLINTON cartel crack cocaine?

        1. dtm says:

          Brilliant response. Somewhere some unfortunate people have to spend holidays with you…

      3. Mys77 says:

        Yeah, you will have a job, courtesy of Trump, you will have a secure, lawful immigration policy, you will have reduced taxes….you will have education and health xare that functions…and race has nothing to do with character…and morals, you will be respected. Guess you forgot Obamas bitchy comnent, to veteran McCain to shut up, because he won? So listen up you douche bag, Trump won, hillary lost, big time. Get over it snowflake. So, you may take the next 8 years to sit there and wonder why hillary lost, and you continue to be a first rate loser.

        1. dtm says:

          I already have a job, courtesy of my work in the military (you’re welcome) and college education. I already have lawful immigration policy thanks to Obama (illegal immigration at 40-year low). Again, my education and healthcare are terrific.And Obama NEVER told McCain to “shut up” you dipshit…He told him that the election is over. He told Republican lawmakers “I won” when they were trying to block the stimulus package. Your ability to separate fantasy from reality is sorely lacking.
          Yes, Trump won. Where did I write that he didn’t?

          I’ll bet you’re a riot at the trailer park clubhouse.

          1. Mys77 says:

            Listen up scumbag….you lived off the government, the same people who paid you, have now voted for Trump. And yes, , obama did in fact mock McCain and all conservatives to shut up, he won. So, in your altered, twisted view point….We the people aren’t going to put up with your socialist crap, your hatred towards morals, American principles, and our economy. Your ability to NOT GET IT, is completely predictable…but what can I say, except, just shut up, Trump won, there is nothing you can do to alter that, and obama is going go down as the pos we all have wanted to flush and wipe from our memories. The BO pos was a stinker, you know it, everyone knows it, but for some reason, you like the smell. Go figure.

          2. dtm says:

            So…you can provide video of him telling McCain to “shut up”?

            Start producing some evidence to support your wildly absurd claims or shut the fuck up, poser.

  • teaman says:

    The problem with this 20 is, they have an extremely hard time crawling out of the basement of their outhouse…..anyway, the stink would diffidently disrupt the party!!

  • itsfun says:

    Who cares; Stay away. The Washington Post reported this morning that Lewis also did not go to the inauguration of President Bush. Didn’t he say he has never missed a inauguration since he has been in Washington. Was that selective memory or just a plain lie? He used the same excuse saying President Bush was illegitimate.

    1. Askjrsk says:

      Liar. Actually has so much in common with Obamas

      1. itsfun says:

        Just what are you calling a lie? Lewis did skip the inauguration of President George Bush. It is a proven fact. Maybe you should try do some research before calling people names. Having anything in common with the Obama’s is not a compliment.

        1. Askjrsk says:

          Oh no the liar comment was not directed, to you but to Lewis. Sorry for that confusion. I do know Lewis the plantation black., as Herman Cain calls him lied . Lewis did not attend . Trump wants democrats tickets that aren’t attending. So sorry about the confusion.

          1. itsfun says:

            Okay, thanks for clearing that up. I do get too sensitive sometimes. After being called idiot, moron, liar and whatever names some come up with, I do get defensive. Thanks again for clearing up my misunderstanding.

          2. Askjrsk says:

            Absolutely. I try to be more careful and more detailed in my comment I see where sometimes a quick reply can be misunderstood. About that name calling, I totally agree. Affects me too. Name calling is so inappropriate. I’m with you buddy. Keep on posting you do a good job.

    2. Askjrsk says:

      Upvoted you too

  • Sue says:

    So what! Better they stay home if they can’t celebrate the US system with nonviolent transfer of power.

    1. Mrseddies says:

      They need to put on their BIG BOY pants and show up to symbolize to the country and the world that we are working together to do what is best for OUR country and the world. That we need to be taken seriously, especially our enemies.

    2. Askjrsk says:


  • Bowserb says:

    How can anyone with even average intelligence care about what John Lewis says? Just listen to that dolt talk for 2 minutes, and you know he is a moron elected by other morons. I’m sure Trump is thinking “Great! One less useless POS at my big party!”

    1. Askjrsk says:


  • TexRancher says:

    No loss there! We can add their names to the list of politicians who are NOT working for the country only their own biased base just like the avowed communists (see the list of members of the DSA) in our government.

    1. dtm says:

      Going to the inauguration is “working for the country”? Please explain.

      1. Mrseddies says:

        It is a start on unity and of bring the country together, if we don’t start working together then we will fail as a nation. We don’t need to agree on everything but we must work together and come up with workable solutions. As leaders of the minority party they must learn to work with the majority party, and the other way around. The first step is to SHOW UP and understand that you don’t have to agree but you do have to show to the country and the world that you will work together for what is best for OUR country.

      2. Mys77 says:

        Not going is working for the country? Please explain? Idiot.

        1. dtm says:

          Glad to see you can post one comment without resorting to name-calling…Oh, guess not.

          You do know the inauguration is a celebration, right? Exactly how are any elected officials “working” for their constituents by attending? See, I’d rather they get out in their communities and work/volunteer instead of partying. I think you and I have far different views of the definition of work.

          I’ll grant Mrseddies response below regarding unity, but the Right is in no position to chastise the Left regarding that topic. That’s simply hypocritical.

          1. Mys77 says:

            Glad to see you don’t get it… is an idea…lets demand NO DEMONRAT SHALL BE ALLOWED TO THE INAUGURATION….THOSE RACIST BLACKS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND…NOT THE PARADE, THE PARTIES, NOTHING. Those same lowlife demonrats would be screaming its their right to attend… stuff that in your pie hole.

          2. dtm says:

            If you’re so scared by Democrats and don’t want them there anyway, why are you bitching about them skipping this event?

          3. Mys77 says:

            Scared? Lol, I am ecstatic that everytime a lowlife, racist, socialistic pig exposes who they really are, is another nail in the demonrats coffin! One thing for sure, its going to be a HAPPY crowd and there will be no camera time for the ugly faced, two faced, hypocritical demonrats….with hatred in their eyes. So, just get yourself drunk or stoned or whatever you demonrats do when you cannot cope with reality…THIS IS GOING TO BE FUN!

          4. dtm says:

            “… I am ecstatic that everytime a lowlife, racist, socialistic pig exposes who they really are…”

            No wonder you like Trump so much.

          5. Jo Ann Kowalski says:

            Scared of those moronic communists. They r afraid of what We The People r going to find out about them. How much money they steal, never help their people. They should all be fired why get paid by us if u demonrats hate America n r all racists. Demonrats burn in hell

          6. dtm says:

            Oh Lord, Jo Ann’s off her meds again. She actually called Democrats racists when the Orange troll she elected has been captured many times using racist language…

            How old is Jo Ann? Must be youg as civilized people don’t feel the need to name-call…

            Perhaps this helps her deal with the sex life her uncle ruined.

          7. Jo Ann Kowalski says:

            You r the most disgusting piece of racial shit. What r u a pedophile. U love hitlery the wife of a rapist. Obummer who hates America. Would love to meet your ass in Brooklyn you lowlife piece of shit. Take your meds or did your dealer beat you.

          8. dtm says:

            Ha! I’m guessing you weren’t valedictorian. Ooooooh you want to meet me in Brooklyn….sorry, I’m seeing someone already, but thanks for the offer. And I don’t carry $1’s.

  • Teserra says:

    Who needs these Dems at our big party on the 20th? They are “has beens”! Hope they will all be voted out of office next go round. We will no longer to ruled by law breakers and tyrants nor by Hollywood. Let them all move to California! Trump will clean up the damage the Dems have done to our Country.

    1. Bowserb says:

      They won’t be voted out. Their constituents are birds of the same feather–socialists, welfare takers, big government slugs.
