8:55 PM: Pelosi, Pence not even looking at each other. House impeachment managers sitting together:

The House’s impeachment managers — who are all sitting together — have had a receiving line of fellow Democrats ever since they got to the floor.

Lots of hand-shaking. I also saw Rep. Dan Kildee give a salute.

8:00 PM: State of the Union: Economy booming:

Why should @realDonaldTrump talk about impeachment at the #SOTU when we have the hottest economy in history? https://t.co/0eeWTv7n8c

— Senator Mike Braun (@SenatorBraun) February 4, 2020

The real worry for Ds right now isn’t the IA caucus mess, it’s that: 1) latest Gallup has Trump at 49%, highest ever of his presidency; 2) other polls out this week show Trump on high end of his job approve range; and 1/2

Split Squad: Omar, Tlaib to attend in protest:

I am attending tonight’s address not to confer any legitimacy on his actions, his statements, or his presidency.

I am attending on behalf of all of those targeted by this President to say, ‘We are greater than hate.’

My presence tonight is resistance.

“There is no right or wrong way to protest.” —@ayannapressley

I’m joining my sisters in Congress in wearing white–my white #PalestinianThobe–to #SOTU. Being #unapologeticallyMe is my way of protesting this #ImpeachedPresident. pic.twitter.com/S8bHJPyDpz

Dems, Independents Don’t Even Want to Watch SOTU:

Nearly two in five (39%) Americans plan to watch President Donald Trump’s State of the Union message tonight. 47% say they will not be watching and don’t want to watch the address tonight. https://t.co/OkhlaSavnX #SOTU #SOTU2020 pic.twitter.com/e4SZqVlyvK

Resistance Democrats boycotting:

After much deliberation, I have decided that I will not use my presence at a state ceremony to normalize Trump’s lawless conduct & subversion of the Constitution.

None of this is normal, and I will not legitimize it.

Consequently, I will not be attending the State of the Union.

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) February 4, 2020

Because of an impeached, reckless, ruthless, lawless, shameless, corrupt, & unapologetically bigoted president – who is still engaging in a coverup, the state of the House, the state of the Senate, and the #StateOfTheUnion are divided.

I will NOT attend #SOTU2020.

— Congressman Al Green (@RepAlGreen) February 4, 2020

I am not attending tonight’s sham #SOTU https://t.co/U9skFWohse

— Ayanna Pressley (@AyannaPressley) February 4, 2020

To think that I would attend the #SOTU to hear the message of an IMPEACHED president is a thought that in no way would be consistent w/ my fight and struggle against this dishonorable president. I will certainly NOT be there!

— Maxine Waters (@RepMaxineWaters) February 4, 2020

I will #BoycottSOTU, but the crowd will be filled w/ people impacted most by Trump’s policies & McConnell’s shameful inaction. I gave my ticket to Michelle Freedman, a tireless advocate for lower Rx prices. Her experience is why we’re fighting to improve the #StateOfHealthCare

— Earl Blumenauer (@repblumenauer) February 4, 2020

I’m not interested in listening to this impeached President lie. Therefore, I will not be attending the #SOTU2020 tonight.
