Donald Trump will be speaking to both houses of Congress and millions of Americans are anxiously awaiting to hear what he has to say.
Rather than wait to hear what Trump has to say, Democrats are already figuring out ways to protest Trump with various gimmicks and outfits during the speech.
Here are some examples…
From Fox News:
Some of Trump’s biggest critics are planning to demonstrate their opposition to the 45th president in their own way when he enters the House chamber Tuesday night.
Rep. Eliot Engel, D-N.Y., for instance, is planning to ditch his years-long tradition of standing at the edge of the aisle to shake the president’s hand.
At least one Democrat, California Rep. Maxine Waters, reportedly does plan to skip the speech.
Democrats also are turning to former Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear to deliver the party’s official response. And another Democratic response will be delivered, in Spanish, by Astrid Silva, who was brought illegally to the U.S. as a child.
Other Democrats are making a statement of sorts with the guests they invite.
Rhode Island Rep. Jim Langevin is leading an effort to encourage members to bring guests from their districts who have been, or could be, negatively affected by Trump administration policies.

Members of the House Democratic Women’s Working Group, meanwhile, plan to wear white to show their “commitment to protecting women’s rights,” such as access to affordable health care, equal pay, and affordable childcare.
Ironically, Donald Trump signed two bills today specifically meant to help women which makes the wearing white protest seem a little unnecessary.
Liberal politicians aren’t exactly handling this situation with class.
