Tonight is an exercise in democracy mandated by the Constitution. The President speaks to both houses of Congress. The fact that Donald Trump is President is beside the point. All members should attend and behave themselves. If they don’t like what is being said, they should sit there quietly.
Unfortunately, some give politics a higher priority than democracy. A few are planning to boycott the event. A walkout or verbal protest is possible.
Let’s hope everyone behaves like a respectable elected representative of the people and not a political rabble rouser.
