Socialist, illegal alien advocate and member of the HATE America party Luis Gutierrez walked out of the SOTU as members of Congress (GOP & their guests really) broke out in a “USA, USA” chant following the President’s pro-America remarks. Apparently hearing all the good about the USA and people chanting it was too much for the little guy.
First off, there’s no doubt Gutierrez planned to walk out of Pres Trump’s SOTU speech. Nothing the democ..socialists do is by accident or spur of the moment, it’s reported he had to leave over a scheduling conflict! Really? SOTU’s have no fixed time frame, some are long some are short. Who would make an appointment that late at night during a speech that could go long or short? This is a lame excuse to cover for being disrespectful to POTUS and the American people.
take note he has what looks like a flag draped over his shoulder, most likely Puerto Rico. He has some cultural garb on, in solidarity with others in the House who are hispanic or of african descent, with respect to his Puerto Rican ancestry. He is trying to make a statement, what, no one knew at the time but it’s based on Hate Trump and anti-American. The little jerk issued a statement afterwards saying,
“Even though I disagreed with almost everything he said, for Trump, the speech was clear and well-delivered. Whoever translated it for him from Russian did a good job.
I am still hopeful, but I don’t see this Congress and this President coming to an agreement that prevents the deportation of the Dreamers. The White House agenda is to gut legal immigration in exchange for allowing some of the Dreamers to live here. For those of us who support legal immigration, and that’s most Democrats and many Republicans, it won’t fly. And the Dreamers themselves have said they do not want legal status if it comes at the expense of others who will suffer more as part of the bargain. The speech did nothing to bring the pro- and anti-immigrant sides closer together.
I was hoping for some sort of apology on Puerto Rico, but I heard nothing. Puerto Rico is a metaphor for how this President sees all Latinos and people of color: he does not see us as his equals and he does not see us as fellow human beings. If you look at how the President has treated Puerto Rico, you have to conclude that he just doesn’t care and probably thinks of Puerto Rico as just another shithole country.
I was born in 1953 in the U.S. when separate but equal was the law of the land. I am proud of the progress the United States has made as a nation on issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, disabilities, and many other areas where we have advanced. I was hoping to get through my life without having to witness an outwardly, explicitly racist American President, but my luck ran out.”
Trump has nothing to apologize for with respect to Puerto Rico. He has done all he can, provided whatever aid was requested by Gov Ricardo Rossello. The truth of the matter is this, PR was in bankruptcy and it’s infrastructure (more specifically electrical grid) in shambles BEFORE hurricane Irma hit! The entire electrical grid had to be rebuilt including running all new power lines! Gutierrez, nor the media for that matter, is not being truthful.
Lastly, if Trump’s speech was sooo offensive, a product of Russian propaganda and too much to listen to why didn’t Luis walk out when the Pres was speaking about immigration or countless other issues he vehemently disagrees with? He wanted to make a statement and that chant was the perfect opportunity, because this guy HATES America. And take note Pelosi sees him walking out, she deliberately turned 180° to see him go as his body goes out of frame!
Gutierrez and his socialist hate America party are disgusting and vile at this point. Only good thing about this is it’s his last SOTU to attend. This jerk with a nasty overbite isn’t seeking re-election.
