Rep. Maxine Water has announced she will boycott tonight’s State of the Union address by President Trump.
Waters explained in a tweet:
To think that I would attend the #SOTU to hear the message of an IMPEACHED president is a thought that in no way would be consistent w/ my fight and struggle against this dishonorable president. I will certainly NOT be there!
