When the President of the United States delivers his usual State of the Union address, politicians make it a point to be present. They want to show their voters just how important these issues are. But, when you have a President like Donald Trump, things are, well, a little different. Essentially, this once respected, heavily honored event has become a national embarrassment. And while there have been a litany of different ways citizens and politicians have showcased their opposition for Donald Trump, and his bigoted policies and agendas, there’s a lawmaker out there who’s deciding to take a different approach.
A great way to display your distaste on a grand level is by simply not showing up. A refusal of attendance can speak volumes when silently protesting something you disagree with. Such is the case with lawmakers and the upcoming State of the Union address. And the man leading this charge is Democratic Representative from Oregon, Earl Blumenauer.

In an official statement explaining his reasons for not attending this otherwise important event, Representative Blumenauer said, “Rather than listening to yet another destructive and divisive speech by Trump, I will not attend this year’s annual address to Congress.
Adding, “Instead, like I did during Trump’s Inauguration, I will be working here at home listening to Oregonians about what they think about the State of the Union. Hearing from Oregonians and working together to protect our values and advance policies that actually strengthen our communities is a more productive use of my time.”
Will this sort of message penetrate the thick walls of Donald Trump’s delusion? Probably not. But it’s still important for other lawmakers to take a similar stance, and boycott this inept moron’s State of the Union address.
