Waters to Skip Trump's Address; Other Dems Will Avoid Aisle Handshakes
— ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) February 28, 2017
Waters reportedly told House Democrats that she would not be able to control herself, so she's staying home.
"The president is not going to say what I want him to say," she said. "He's gonna take credit for everything."
Waters is not the only Democrat engaging in a form of anti-Trump protest tonight.
Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY) is typically a fixture sitting along the aisle to shake the president's hand at the addresses.
Though he has sat there every year since 1989, he will be breaking his streak among the so-called "Aisle Hogs" tonight.
Another Aisle Hog, Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-NJ), also will be sitting elsewhere this evening after four straight years on the aisle during President Barack Obama's State of the Union addresses.
"Who knows? Maybe in a few years I'll have that kind of relationship with the sitting president. I doubt it," Pascrell told Bill Hemmer on "America's News HQ."
