President Barack Obama planned to keep an empty seat next to First Lady Michelle Obama during his final State of the Union (SOTU) address to the nation, to symbolically represent victims of gun violence.

The SOTU address is given by a sitting president in accordance with the US Constitution “He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient.”

Presidents have long invited prominent individuals and average Americans to sit with the first lady, often as a way to underscore a theme. Obama, in his remaining 11 months in office, says he’s using his White House powers to change gun control laws by executive orders because Congress has failed to act. Many in Congress and the nation believe these executive orders to be unconstitutional.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz telephoned the president to ask him to include an empty seat for: victims of micro-aggression, automobile accidents, the Redskin football team logo, LGBT civil rights, hitting cows in the road, falling vending machines, and shark attacks; lack of safe spaces on college campuses; harsh treatment of illegal immigrants and Syrian refuges; the lack of free birth control devices for women; and the need for more welfare payments to inner city rioters, looters and arsonists.

Obama’s new gun control efforts are facing strong opposition from Republicans, the National Rifle Association (NRA) and even some Democrats who say it’s up to Congress to enact new policies on firearms not by presidential executive orders.

A small group of influential bipartisan members of Congress met with the president to ask him to include an empty seat for: victims of ObamaCare, the Veterans Administration, Benghazi Libya embassy attacks and IRS Lois Lerner’s attacks on conservatives; Former Secretary of State Clinton’s sending TOP SECRET emails over non-secure lines; US foreign policy debacles around the world; and government overspending, over regulation and over taxing the American people.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest announced that the president has decided to cancel his last SOTU address. The SOTU is usually given in the US House of Representatives chambers to members of Congress (House and Senate), Supreme Court Justices, federal government Executive Branch officials and other invited guests. All the resulting symbolic empty seats would leave only President Obama addressing First Lady Michelle Obama!
