The playground games of House Democrats march on.
Instead of House Democrats boycotting President Trump’s first address before a joint session of Congress as they did his inauguration, they’re planning to make the event as uncomfortable for him as they can.
They plan to bring guests that they claim will be marginalized under the Trump administration, including members of the LGBT community, ethnic minorities, the disabled and immigrants who have entered or remain in the country illegally.
When one-third of the House Democrats skipping Trump’s inauguration did little to dampen the spirits, they’re calling for a change in tactics.
Unbeknownst to the clueless Dems who are part of this new plot, no group other than perhaps illegal immigrants should have a problem.
Democrats are urged in a letter to bring a guest who has made “a positive impact” on the community “despite discrimination or marginalization,” according to The Hill.
“It is our hope that their presence in the House Gallery will remind President Trump that he is not the arbiter of patriotism,” the letter said. “This country belongs to all of us, and his rhetoric of intolerance will not stand.”
The letter was drafted by a diverse group of liberals, which The Hill reported as including:
Reps. Jim Langevin (R.I.), who was shot accidentally as a teen and became the first quadriplegic to serve in Congress; Michelle Lujan Grisham (N.M.), head of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus; Cedric Richmond (La.), chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus; Judy Chu (Calif.), head of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus; and David Cicilline (R.I.) and Jared Polis (Colo.), the co-chairman of the LGBT Equality Caucus.
“We want to send a strong message to the [president] that he cannot push these communities aside, and he cannot change the fabric of this country,” they wrote.
“Instead of celebrating the very diversity that makes our country a beacon of inclusion and equality, he has chosen to vilify, bully and alienate women, immigrants, people of color, people with disabilities, and people of differing faiths.”
And the game-playing doesn’t stop with the guest lists. They hope that no Democrats will rush to pose for the traditional photo shaking Trump’s hand as he walks down the deter aisle toward the dais.
“We have to have a higher standard,” Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. said of the practice.
“For sure I will not be nearby,” Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Texas agreed.
Folks on social media didn’t appear to be impressed with the planned antics.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., invited the president late last month to speak at a joint Congressional session on February 28.
According to 1 Corinthians 13, “When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things.”
Apparently Democrats were never taught that lesson.
