The Wall Street Journal: More then 50 House Democrats to boycott Trump’s inauguration

The number of House Democrats planning to skip the inauguration of Republican Donald Trump surpassed 50 on Tuesday, meaning that more than a quarter of the party’s House caucus will be boycotting the swearing-in ceremony of the next president.

The lawmakers are citing a variety of reasons for not attending, including the accusations of Russian-backed hacking during the 2016 campaign, the president-elect’s past comments about women and immigrants, and his tweets on Saturday calling civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis (D., Ga.) “all talk, talk, talk — no action or results. Sad!”
