Democrats have boycotted the SOTU speech in the past.

They should do it again.

They should give it no legitimacy.

Actually, more than a dozen Democrats boycotted his first SOTU speech. So, it is not a new thing.

But, they have even more of a reason to boycott this year's SOTU.

He has nothing to say to Democrats, or to any part of America, that does not support his criminal regime.

I would like to see every Democrat skip it.

2. It's our house. We shouldn't go anywhere.

Trump can damn well behave like a respectful guest or fuck off.

8. Absolutely. You don't turn away from a bully. You stand up and look'em square in the eyes.

4. I'm tempted to tune in to see how Pelosi claps at him.

But it's probably best to wait and see it later in the highlights reel.

9. boycott, walkout, or just turn their backs?

I actually like the third option, because the first 2, he would just verbally bully them in abstentia. Now if they were physically present and disrespected him, it could push him to a "Col. Jessup incident" just my thoughts.

10. What would it look like if there were nothing but Republicans cheering him on?

They could show their admiration without any interference from the Democrats.

11. You can hiss and no one can see it.

But I expect we'll see silence (and unhinged howling from the minority).

12. They should all duct tape their mouths symbolically

Except the rethugs would enjoy it too much and be laughing about it later.
