"Deplorable Vet" Makes Offer to Maxine Waters About SOTU She's Boycotting
When it comes to far left politicians, there are few battier than Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters. In fact, she recently said she plans to boycott President Trump’s State of the Union address. For one American veteran, this was just the opportunity he needed to troll Waters on Twitter.
Last Friday, the crazy Democrat representative thew such a fit over Trump’s alleged comments about “sh**hole” countries, she said she wasn’t going to attend the his State of the Union address. “Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said during an appearance on “All in With Chris Hayes.”
“Someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in?” she continued.

Waters’ comments gave Ricky Taylor, a 10 year African-America Army veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan, a brilliant idea.
Known on Twitter as the “Deplorable Vet,” Taylor tweeted, “Everyone please help and retweet. I would like to take Maxine Waters seats at The State Of The Union Address. If they don’t want to go this Military Veteran would gladly go. I’d tell the President how much he means to myself, family, Military, and all of his supporters!”
Even “Fox & Friends” picked up on the tweet and had him on the show.
“There’s so many Trump supporters out there that are minorities. She doesn’t speak for everybody, she surely doesn’t speak for me,” Taylor told the Fox hosts.
“She does this for a publicity stunt,” he continued. “She does it to kind of pander to her audience, and I just thought it was extremely disrespectful for her to say that about the president.”
Later, this story took a great turn.
Republican Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy heard about Taylor, and according to Fox News, “announced a formal invitation to Taylor to join him at the big speech.”
To say he was elated is an understatement. Just take a look at the picture he tweeted:
In a separate interview, the “Fox & Friends” hosts asked Taylor if he had heard back from Waters. He said no, and explained why.
He said that he doesn’t fit the left’s narrative of a typical Trump supporter. He’s an African-American-Latino who doesn’t fit Waters narrative of a white, Confederate flag waving, Trump supporter.
You see, the left wants to lump every Trump supporter into one category. The truth is, there are so many people, from Asians, to Latinos, to African-Americans, to Native Americans, to whites, who support Trump.
No, Waters, Trump is not racist, but maybe you are. If all you can do is lump every Trump supporter as “white,” then maybe you should sit down and listen to what this “Deplorable Vet” has to say.
