Dems plan to teach Trump a lesson by using Muslims as pawns at Obama’s final State of the Union

In an effort to show up Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump while pushing an identity politics agenda, Democratic lawmakers have embarked on an orchestrated plan to politicize President Obama’s final State of the Union address by inviting Muslim guests.

Trump created a firestorm following the San Bernardino terrorist attack last month when he proposed a ban on all Muslims entering the United States “until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison and nine other Democrats will invite Muslim guests, the Washington Examiner reported.

In a letter sent last month, the Minnesota Democrat, the first Muslim member of Congress, and U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, extended a challenge to invite Muslims, according to the Examiner.

Wasserman Schultz made it clear the motivation was political, saying she helped organize the campaign because “leading political figures have made offensive and outrageous suggestions that we should create a national registry of all people of one particular faith and that we should prevent any person of that faith from even entering this great country.”

And the president seemingly followed in the lawmaker’s footsteps to draw attention to what they claim to be growing anti-Muslim sentiment, announcing Sunday that a Syrian refugee will be sitting with first lady Michelle Obama during Tuesday’s address.

Other Democrats involved include U.S. Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota and U.S. Reps. Ami Bera and Judy Chu, both from California, Oregon’s Suzanne Bonamici, Michigan’s Dan Kildee, Grace Meng of New York, Mike Quigley of Illinois and Arizona’s Kyrsten Sinema, according to the Examiner.
