Sour grapes anyone?
The list of Democratic lawmakers boycotting the Trump inauguration keeps growing, with no end in sight. And now, Minnesota Representative and possible DNC chair Keith Ellison has officially joined the sore loser ranks.
Ellison explained his reasoning in a tweet Monday afternoon.
I will not celebrate a man who preaches a politics of division and hate. I won't be attending Donald Trump's inauguration.

That makes 25 Democratic House members and counting, including Georgia Rep. John Lewis, who called Trump’s upcoming presidency “illegitimate” because of Russian hacking, or something. One can’t help but wonder what these folks would be saying if Hillary Clinton had won and Republican lawmakers were boycotting HER inauguration, but we all know the answer to that question.
Being the highest profile Democrat to boycott the inauguration so far, Ellison naturally drew plenty of fire on social media. After all, Twitter makes pointing out liberal hypocrisy easy, and fun!
Ellison won't go to Trump's inauguration, but he'll attend fundraisers with Hamas guys. https://t.co/jMYLjK2DBh
