Army Vet Who Called Out Maxine Waters for Skipping Trump’s SOTU Address Gets a Surprise Invite

The U.S. Army veteran who offered to take Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) seat at President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address just got a big surprise.

After Waters said last week she would be skipping Trump’s address on Jan. 30 because the president “lies in the face of facts,” Ricky Taylor, who served two tours of duty in Afghanistan, said he’d “gladly” take her place:

Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI) saw Taylor’s appearance this week on Fox News and decided to give him a ticket to Trump’s State of the Union address. Duffy described attending the event as “a great American experience.”

The congressman said his wife, Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy, decided to give her ticket to Taylor.

The Army veteran said Thursday morning he hasn’t heard back from Waters because he — a black Latino veteran — doesn’t fit her “narrative.”

“She wants to portray Donald Trump supporters as middle-aged white men that live in trailers and have Confederate flags sticking out,” he said, “so I just don’t think it fit her narrative and I pretty much knew I wouldn’t get a response from her.”
