Democrats To Give Trump A Dose Of His Own Embarrassing Medicine At His State Of The Union



Democrats are going to make President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address pretty uncomfortable.

“Some members will be bringing survivors of sexual assault and advocates as their guests,” Rep. Lois Frankel (D-FL) explained.

Members of the Democratic Women’s Working Group were already planning to show their solidarity with women affected by sexual assault in their workplace or in other aspects of life. They intend to wear all black to the president’s speech, the Hill reported. The group, comprised of every female Democratic lawmaker in Congress, invited both sides of the aisle to take part in their silent demonstration against assault.

Although we can expect some of those members to invite women who have survived assault as their guests, its not clear who members will bring, or who those individuals have accused of harming them. Trump himself has been accused by nearly 20 women over the years of engaging in assault, and there’s a small possibility that a member of the caucus will invite one of the women who are alleging the president assaulted her.

Trump has denied ever engaging in inappropriate behavior with another women. Yet leaked audio during his presidential campaign revealed the president admitting to kissing women without first asking, and even using his celebrity stature to grab women by their genitals at his own discretion.

Early in December, 60 Democratic lawmakers urged Congress to open up investigations into allegations made against the president. “We cannot ignore the multitude of women who have come forward with accusations against Mr. Trump,” the Working Women’s Group wrote at that time.

Trump has a lot to answer for, and “his word” cannot be given the strength or the benefit of the doubt that could once be afforded to presidents in years’ past. Trump lies to Americans several times daily. Investigations are needed, and the silent protest by the Democratic Working Women’s Group highlights the need for Trump to be held accountable.
