Maxine Waters Set for LIVE Televised Speech After Trump’s State of the Union Address
Who really represents the Democratic party these days if not California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters?
Waters will not actually go to, and listen to the President’s speech, telling MSNBC:
“Why would I take my time to go and sit, and listen to a liar, to someone who lies in the face of facts, who’s someone who can change their tune, day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in? I don’t trust him. I don’t appreciate him, and I wouldn’t waste my time sitting in that house, listening to what he has to say. He does not deserve my attention!“
The Washington Examiner reports:

As crazy as that sounds, in doing that.. it may give her the best chance of making a successful speech.
