Israeli Prime Minister to Speak to Congress in DC; Dems Sitting Out

WASHINGTON, D.C.– Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is set to speak to Congress at 10am, but not to a full house. Fifty-five democrats are sitting this one out. On that list of democrats not joining congress today, Congressman Bennie Thompson. Democratic senators feel that Netanyahu’s presence at the meeting is disrespectful, but Mississippi Congressman Steven Palazzo says it’s more than than.

“I don’t know why Congressman Thompson and others are taking this as an insult,” says Palazzo, “it’s like a spoiled child. They don’t get their way they start throwing a temper tantrum.”


President Barack Obama will also sit this one out.

“He’s literally talking about the survival of his country,” Palazzo says this is a dangerous precedent that the democrats in Congress are setting, “and we’ve invited the president of Afghanistan to come speak next.”
