Trump transition team vice chairman Sean Duffy on Tuesday blasted Democrats who are skipping this Friday’s inauguration, saying, “Donald Trump won, you may not like him… but show up… Put your big boy pants on.”
“We’re all Americans,” Duffy said on CNN’s “New Day.” “You know what? I was not thrilled, it was a very depressing day in 2008 and 2012 in the Duffy household when President Obama won re-election.”
He continued: “We weren’t happy, but guess what? We go to the inauguration maybe with a heavy heart but as part of this American process that Republicans and Democrats come together as one America and transition peacefully.”
Duffy said he is “disappointed” that so many Democrats plan to skip the swearing-in of Donald Trump as president, comparing the no-shows to a little kid getting a juice box and a trophy regardless of winning or losing.
