Inaugural Bawl

From the Daily Mail, “The latest tally has 65 Democratic representatives saying they would participate in a boycott of Donald trump’s inaugural – more than one-third of their caucus“.

A former speaker of the House said Thursday that the roughly 60 Democratic members of Congress who plan to boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration should hang their heads in shame.

‘If you’re a member of Congress, if you work that hard to get to be a part of the system … all they’re doing is make themselves look small and silly,’ Newt Gingrich told ‘Fox & Friends’ hosts.

And the onetime conservative revolutionary, who led the Republican Party to a House majority in 1994 after four decades of back-benching, warned Democrats that their partisan stand could backfire.
