As Twitchy has reported, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will not “legitimize” President Trump’s State of the Union address Tuesday night by attending, but fellow squad member and Bernie Sanders surrogate Rep. Ilhan Omar says she will attend, with her presence being a form of resistance.
If you were wondering what the rest of the squad is up to, Elizabeth Warren surrogate Rep. Ayanna Pressley is joining Ocasio-Cortez in boycotting the “sham” address and even tweeted a photo of herself for some reason.

He is president not just an occupant. You and your dying party are the problem.

Thank you for sparing us having to look at your tiresome angry smirks and pouting as the camera swings toward the Dems after each applause line.

You'll have a lot of work to do working the spin on the Iowa sham, so it makes sense.

It sounds like it’s going to be a great speech whether a single Democrat shows up or not.

The fourth member of the squad, Rashida Tlaib, has finally checked in, and she’s also going as her way of protesting.

Ilhan Omar will attend the SOTU even though 'this impeached president is not legitimate' because 'my presence tonight is resistance' https://t.co/u9T0HXmoDT
