Kirsters Baish| Democratic Representative Maxine Waters made the ridiculous announcement that she will not be attending President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address. One United States Army veteran decided to volunteer to take her place at the event.
@FoxNews Everyone please help and retweet. I would like to take Maxine Waters seats at The State Of The Union Address. If they don't want to go this Military Veteran would gladly go. I'd tell the President how much he means to myself, family, Military, and all of his supporters!

The veteran’s Twitter account explained that he had served in the United States Army for a total of ten years with two different tours to Afghanistan. His tweet was made public late on Monday evening. It has already been shown on Fox and Friends and has been retweeted more than 11,000 times so far.
CRTV Michelle Malkin Investigates’s Nick Short retweeted the Twitter comment and stated, “For every Rep that boycotts we should fill their empty seats with a Veteran.”
Each Rep gets to bring one guest to the SOTU right? For every Rep that boycotts we should fill their empty seats with a Veteran. If you can’t rise above politics to attend the SOTU then at least give your seat to someone who has defended your freedom regardless of politics. https://t.co/hSnrHYjNBr

The Twitter post came as a direct response to Maxine Waters’ claim in which she stated that she didn’t plan on going to President Trump’s State of the Union address when she appeared on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes.”
Waters was quoted saying, “Oh no, I didn’t go to the inauguration. I didn’t go to the joint session that was held after that. I don’t intend to go to this one. Why would I take my time to go and listen to a liar? To someone who lies in the face of facts?”
Rare reported that Democratic Representatives John Lewis and Frederica Wilson announced that they would not be attending either. Lewis stated that he “wouldn’t be honest with himself” if he were to take part in the address. Wilson stated that she would not be attending because of “recent racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations.”
The Tampa Bay Times reported that Wilson made a statement in which she said, “For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address. I have no doubt that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty promises, and lies.”
Wilson went on, “The United States’ reputation is smoldering in the ashes of his recent racist and incendiary remarks about Haiti and African nations.”
Representative Waters released a formal statement in which she discussed President Trump’s alleged remarks about African nations being “s***hole countries.”

“Donald Trump is a racist and indecent man with no good values who is woefully unfit and undeserving of the office in which he serves,” her statement read.
Let’s hope these ungrateful Democrats donate their seats to veterans who truly want to be a part of President Trump’s State of the Union address.
