When it comes to the many states that dot this nation’s storied history, none have generated more controversy and ire than the great state of Florida. From election scandals to prescription opiate abuse epidemics, it seems that the sunshine state cannot escape the glaring eye of a novel human interest story. This latest piece of juicy news comes from the humble city of Tampa Bay, FL. With the upcoming speech by President Donald Trump creeping over the horizon like a foul cloud of noxious fumes, sycophant lawmakers from all around the state have begun publicly inviting their esteemed guests.
While the honor of attending a Presidential speech is already something to take note of, it is the wide array of surprising invitees that has the world so abuzz. Senator Marco Rubio kicked off the unorthodox role call, inviting Florida Senator Joe Negron as his guest. Negron, an alumni of various prestigious places of higher education such as Harvard, has been an esteemed part of the Floridian political body. He is joined by Grace Nelson, guest and wife of Senator Bill Nelson.
While Joe Negron may not have been the first guess for guest at a Presidential function, some of the other invited guests seemed to be living props, spearheads for pointed statements. Christine Leinonen, mother of one of the 49 victims in the Pulse nightclub shooting, found her invitation in the mail courtesy of Representative Val Demings. In a similar move, Representative Stephanie Murphy extended her invitation to Marc Levy, a surgeon who tirelessly worked to save the lives of Pulse night club shooting victims. It would appear that many attendees at this speech, most notably from the House, have a very clear message for the President and all visiting with him.
