Add Democrat Congressman Raul Grijalva (CD-3) to the list of extreme leftists boycotting the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.
In a completely unnecessary publicity stunt on the floor of the US House, the southern Arizona congressman informed his constituents of his decision not to attend the swearing-in ceremony on the steps of the US Capitol. He described his motivation as “an individual act of defiance.”
Instead of attending the ceremony, Grijalva says he will be at home meeting with constituents. Given the congressman’s habits and reputation, constituents will likely find him at his favorite local tavern in South Tucson.
Democrat Congressman Ruben Gallego, representing an urban Phoenix district (CD-7), is yet to decide on whether he will attend the inauguration. He has been openly hostile to the president-elect calling him a “bigot,” “dangerous” and even a “sexual predator.”
In the video above watch as Congressman Ruben Gallego engages in character assassination on the floor of the US House and is rebuked by House leadership several times.
Based on Gallego’s comments, he will probably not attend the inauguration.
