Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand Invites San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz to Trump SOTU Address

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand invites San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulin Cruz as her guest at Donald Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday. Um, this will certainly get under his thin orange skin.

Yulin Cruz and Trump publicly sparred after she criticized his lack of response in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. As of today, there are still people without electricity on the island. He went as far as to call her a “nasty” woman.

Gillibrand tweeted: “It is an honor to announce that Mayor @CarmenYulinCruz of San Juan, Puerto Rico will join me at the . Throughout the crisis in Puerto Rico, Mayor Cruz has shown extraordinary leadership and fearless advocacy for her city.”

The Democrats are literally trolling Trump and it’s glorious. So far, about seven Democrats have boycotted the State of the Union address, while those who plan to attend will wear black to send a signal to Trump. I am hoping that once he starts talking some Democrats will get up and walk out or someone should yell “you lie,” since it’s a foregone conclusion that he will lie — more than once.
