This Democrat Congressman is Boycotting Trump’s Inauguration

Rep. [score]Luis Gutierrez[/score] told reporters he plans to boycott president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony because he opposes Trump’s views on immigration.

Fox News reports:

“I’m not going to this inauguration, I can’t go to this inauguration, because he continues to spew hatred, bigotry and prejudice even after he said he was going to bring us all together,” Gutierrez, a Democrat, told CNN.

Gutierrez, who serves on the House Judiciary Committee, has made comprehensive immigration reform a key part of his congressional career and was an early endorser of Hillary Clinton. He said he has been present at every inauguration ceremony since his election to office in 1992.

Gutierrez also expressed his concerns about Trump’s possible reversal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, a move that would jeopardize the legal status of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants registered under it.

“Donald Trump says he’s going after them, that he’s going to revoke DACA and he’s going to take away their freedom in this country,” he said. “And they’re afraid.”

If the political parties were reversed and a Republican planned to boycott President Obama’s inauguration, the mainstream media would be going nuts over this story.

While Hillary Clinton was leading the polls, Democrats were preoccupied with maintaining the peaceful transition of power, along with making sure both candidates accepted the outcome of the election. They dismissed heated political disagreements as part of the democratic process, and insisted Americans would need to unite after Election Day and put the country first.

That is, until Hillary Clinton lost the election.

Democrats like Rep. Luis Gutierrez are only willing to be a team player if their team wins. Otherwise, expect them to quit the game and take the ball home with them.
