Daily Wire:

After the president gives his State of the Union speech, the opposition party gets a chance to respond. Typically, the opposition party chooses someone elected to high position, such as a senator or governor, whom they feel is a leader of the party (or maybe an up-and-coming leader). That is not the case this year.

On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told reporters that Stacey Abrams, who lost the Georgia governor’s race in 2018, will deliver the Democrats’ response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. Schumer said he and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) both agreed that Abrams should give the response.

“She has led the charge for voting rights, which is at the root of just about everything else,” Schumer said while making the announcement.

Abrams still refuses to concede the election, and has since launched a campaign to question the legitimacy of the results.

Remember when Democrats and left-wing media outlets freaked out when Trump wouldn’t say if he would accept the results of the 2016 presidential election if Hillary Clinton won? Clinton herself said questioning the results of the election was “a direct threat to our democracy” on Twitter and in person. More

This should be interesting. They are allowing Abrams to speak so she can say whatever she wants to say while Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer will disavow any advanced knowledge of the content. I guess these two didn’t recover yet from the hilarious meme-storm from their last appearance.

Beto is probably upset it’s not him.
