After the president gives his State of the Union speech, the opposition party gets a chance to respond. Typically, the opposition party chooses someone elected to high position, such as a senator or governor, whom they feel is a leader of the party (or maybe an up-and-coming leader). That is not the case this year.

On Tuesday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) told reporters that Stacey Abrams, who lost the Georgia governor’s race in 2018, will deliver the Democrats’ response to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union speech. Schumer said he and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) both agreed that Abrams should give the response.

“She has led the charge for voting rights, which is at the root of just about everything else,” Schumer said while making the announcement.

Abrams still refuses to concede the election, and has since launched a campaign to question the legitimacy of the results.

Remember when Democrats and left-wing media outlets freaked out when Trump wouldn’t say if he would accept the results of the 2016 presidential election if Hillary Clinton won? Clinton herself said questioning the results of the election was “a direct threat to our democracy” on Twitter and in person.

After Clinton lost the election, however, she and her media supporters attempted to delegitimize Trump’s win — and they continue to do so today.

Abrams is the latest example of a Democrat refusing to accept her loss. After it was reported that Republican Brian Kemp won the Georgia governorship, Abrams refused to concede.

“I acknowledge that former Secretary of State Brian Kemp will be certified as the victor in the 2018 gubernatorial election,” Abrams said on election night.

“Let’s be clear: This is not a speech of concession because concession means to acknowledge an action is right, true or proper,” Abrams added. “As a woman of conscience and faith, I cannot concede that.”

And now the Democrats want her to give the party’s official response to Trump’s State of the Union.

One can understand how the party might not want to let one of its many 2020 presidential candidates give the speech, but letting a failed candidate give the response is odd. Abrams is considering a run for Senate against Republican Sen. David Perdue, who is up for re-election in 2020.

This appears to be the first time a politician not serving as a governor, senator, or congressman will give the response speech. Steve Beshear, the former governor of Kentucky, gave the “response” to Trump’s first annual message, but this was not considered an official “State of the Union.” Still, he was a former governor, not the former minority leader of a state house of representatives.

Maybe this will start a new trend where popular politicians from across the country that are not serving in well-known positions can get a chance for some attention. Maybe it’s not such a bad thing.

    Perfect choice ! She’s black, female, a failed Georgia gubernatorial candidate, viewed as a “raising star in the party” and to top it all off she owes the IRS $50,000. Add in a great deal of credit card debt along with college debt and you have the perfect Socialist/Democrat.

    No doubt it has already been written and ready to broadcast right after Trump gives his SOTU… It doesn’t matter what the president says… the left will broadcast what Soros wants them to say…

    There is something VERY suspicious about this. Why wouldn’t one of the terrible twins present? Is that because the wont be present at the time?

    Hey Mr Donald Trump, be very very careful, I feel like there might be an attempt on your life. Live for EVERYONE to see, terrible twins (Or even Killary Clinton) with some alibi, Pence then takes over and the deep state threatens his family to comply. BE CAREFUL and don’t fall for their lies.

    What do you bet the first word out of the mouth of this loser/liar/cheater/scum is “racist”? An invisible nobody is kind of a surprise for this “trash our successful President” opportunity. Somebody must have owed her a favor.

    not listening to her or caring what she says. Only listening to the President, Whatever this woman has to say is if no importance to me. She lost an election, so what. Many lose elections;not all can be winners, but seems there are whiners who will not give up. Take you loss and try harder next time.

    Stacy Abrams is a loser and can’t accept the outcome of the election. She is the perfect person to voice the Pelosi/Schumer smut and fake news.

    Stacy Abrams will try to humiliate and belittle our President but like ALL clever Geminis, he will be quick of tongue with a response. Be prepared for a whole lot of tongue lashing.
