We have great news! The veteran who wanted to take the empty seat of Maxine Waters at the State of the Union Speech was just invited to attend by Rep. Sean Duffy…
It's official! I am going to the STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS! Thanks to Representative for Wisconsin's Seventh District Sean Duffy @RepSeanDuffy for personally inviting me as his guest! I am extremely thankful for this. Couldn't have done it without all of you and @foxandfriends pic.twitter.com/4lIvgmb7RP

Rep. Duffy saw the Fox & Friends segment (see below) on Veteran Ricky Taylor then asked him to go:
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT:
Ricky Taylor aka ‘Deplorable Vet’ has a great idea for Maxine Waters…He’s offered to take her empty seat at President Trump’s State of the Union Speech! Waters and Rep. John Lewis plan on boycotting the president’s speech so it has been suggested that fist responders and military veterans take those empty seats. We say YES!
Taylor tweeted out:
@FoxNews Everyone please help and retweet. I would like to take Maxine Waters seats at The State Of The Union Address. If they don't want to go this Military Veteran would gladly go. I'd tell the President how much he means to myself, family, Military, and all of his supporters!

Fox News reports:
On “Fox & Friends,” Taylor said he uses the Twitter handle “Deplorable Vet” because he’s a proud Trump supporter. After Hillary Clinton’s infamous “basket of deplorables” remark, he embraced the term.
“You can call us what you want, but we’re still going to support our president,” Taylor said.
He said he takes issue with how Waters tries to speak for all black people and minorities.
“There’s so many Trump supporters out there that are minorities,” Taylor said. “She doesn’t speak for everybody, she surely doesn’t speak for me.”
As for his offer to take Waters’ SOTU seats, Taylor said he hasn’t heard anything from her office.
“She does this for a publicity stunt. She does it to kind of pander to her audience,” Taylor said. “And I just thought it was extremely disrespectful for her to say that about the president.”
Taylor received thousands of congratulatory tweets. One of our favorites is below:
