House Democrats Maxine Waters and John Lewis will skip President Trump’s first State of the Union address because they’re furious that he allegedly called some impoverished, crime-riddled African nations “sh*tholes.”
“I don’t trust him, I don’t appreciate him, and I wouldn’t waste my time listening to what he has to say,” Waters fumed to MSNBC. “He does not deserve my attention.”

Waters was echoing a similar announcement by Georgia Congressman John Lewis, who previously told MSNBC: “I do not plan to attend the State of the Union. I cannot in all good conscience be in a room with what he has said.”
At this point, it really makes no difference that Waters, 79, and Lewis, 77, continue to flout their duties by skipping presidential addresses and meetings. President Trump is moving along with his agenda despite widespread Democratic obstruction.
Both Waters and Lewis will have to answer to their constituents as to why they’re sitting at home, collecting their paychecks from taxpayers, while not doing their jobs. The State of the Union address is set for January 30.
Waters previously skipped Trump’s inauguration and his first joint address, where Democrats tried to troll Trump but in a ridiculous stunt that backfired bigly.
And Maxine Waters’ career highlights include being rated one of the “most corrupt” members of Congress by the George Soros–funded liberal watchdog CREW (Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington).

In June 2017, Waters was brutally slammed by a black constituent who called the 13-term Congresswoman a “black racist” whose rhetoric and actions have caused African-American citizens to lose jobs to illegal aliens.
The furious woman shouted through a mega-phone: “Maxine Waters destroyed the black community! She has to go! She’s paid taxpayer money to discriminate against American citizens. She’s been in office too long doing nothing! She’s already showing signs of dementia! She’s a hater!”
