A military veteran came up with the perfect solution to Democrats boycotting President Trump’s State of the Union address, quickly becoming a viral sensation.
The veteran, who served 10 years in the Army and two tours in Afghanistan, said any Democrats who give up their seat should be replaced by a veteran.
Several Democrats alerted the media that they would not attend the address to Congress, with many saying it was due to Trump being a racist.
Mad Maxine Waters (D-CA) for instance, denounced the President as a “racist and indecent man,” while John Lewis (D-GA) also claimed he’s a “racist” who is “taking us back to another place.”
The Army vet essentially said don’t let the door hit you on the way out while offering a solution for the empty seats they’d be leaving behind.
“I would like to take Maxine Waters seats at The State Of The Union Address,” he wrote. “If they don’t want to go this Military Veteran would gladly go.” “I’d tell the President how much he means to myself, family, Military, and all of his supporters!”
Within less than 24 hours, the vet’s suggestion had garnered well over 18,000 retweets and 23,000 likes. The response to this man’s plan was overwhelmingly in the positive, with many other vets stepping up and saying they’d be more than happy to show the President the respect he deserves.
@FoxNews Everyone please help and retweet. I would like to take Maxine Waters seats at The State Of The Union Address. If they don’t want to go this Military Veteran would gladly go. I’d tell the President how much he means to myself, family, Military, and all of his supporters!— Deplorable Vet 🇱🇷 (@Elucifer23) January 16, 2018

The President himself is a big fan of Fox & Friends in the morning. Wouldn’t it be something if he got word of this vet’s suggestion and personally invited him to the State of the Union? Maxine who? Like and share this post to spread the word!
