Democrat Says Why She Will Attend Trump’s inauguration 

Democratic Rep. Gwen Moore (Wis.) has said that she will attend President-Elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. This flies in the face of many of her fellow Black Caucus members wishes. The reason that she gives for attending may be the high card against all their arguments. Would you believe that the current First Lady is involved? I did not know this and I admire her for it.

    Opposition before Trump even does anything? Is she hoping that he fails? Well done Gwen….you are exactly the reason there is divide in this country. And by the way, you should look more at your district….it is terrible.
