Donald Trump is set to deliver his first State Of The Union on January 30. (Spoiler Alert: the Union ain’t doin’ so hot!)
But thanks to the congresswomen of the Democratic Party, there will be at least one bright spot — well, figuratively bright anyway.
The Democratic Women’s Working Group is urging all of Congress follow Hollywood’s lead and wear all black to the speech, in support of the #TimesUp initiative.
California Representative Jackie Speier wrote:
My colleagues and I in the @HouseDemWomen are calling on our fellow MoCs – women & men, Democrats & Republicans – to wear black to this year’s #SOTU in solidarity w/survivors of sexual harassment/violence in Hollywood, politics, the military, academia, etc. #TIMESUP#MeToo

Though the women don’t directly name Trump, he is still being accused by 16 women of sexual harassment and assault, so this would be a pretty strong message aimed right at him.
TBH we were going to wear black anyway to mourn.
Something tells us some Trump supporters would prefer to wear red — or should we say красный?
