Some unhappy faces over the Trump speech Tuesday

From Tuesday: Maxine Waters will boycott Trump’s speech as Nancy Pelosi vows Democrats won’t be ‘out-classed’  . . . "Waters was one of nearly 70 elected Democrats who chose to boycott Trump’s inauguration. Some Democrats claimed they had other things to do that day, but most, including Waters, said their refusal to attend was about resistance to Trump. Waters began talking about President Trump’s impeachment even before he was inaugurated and hasn’t stopped since." . . .
"The Hill reports that Waters’ office confirmed she would not attend the speech but denied she was encouraging others not to do so. So far, she appears to be the only Democrat planning to boycott though Rep. John Lewis told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution today, “I don’t know what I’m going to do right at this moment.” Rep. Eliot Engel announced today that he will attend the speech but, for the first time in 29 years, he will not stand near the aisle to shake the President’s hand as he enters the chamber:" . . .

"Democrats refused to stand and applaud multiple times during President Donald Trump’s hour-long Tuesday night address to Congress.
"A few things Trump spoke to Congress about included creating jobs for the country’s citizens, immigration reform, bolstering the military, lowering drug prices and returning power to the states.
"Democrats, in response, refused to react when Trump mentioned America and putting Americans back to work." . . .
