Former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams says she is “terrified” ahead of her planned response on behalf of the Democratic Party to President Trump’s State of the Union address on Tuesday.

In remarks to a tech conference first reported by Axios, Abrams called Trump merely a “proxy” for powerful interests in society.

The article goes on to state the following:

“Trump stands as a proxy for what has gone on by many others for so long,” Abrams said. “My responsibility is to not only give voice to those who don’t believe they’ve been seen or heard, but to offer remedies … and do that all in 10 minutes.”

During her remarks to the conference, the former Georgia state lawmaker joked that hydration would be a key aspect of her speech preparation, a nod to past State of the Union responses such as Sen. Marco Rubio’s (R-Fla.), which have been marred by awkward moments.

“The first thing I’m going to do is hydrate,” Abrams reportedly said. “I’m terrified. Not because I might make a mistake, but because so many want the opportunity to rebut what they’ve seen over the past few years.

President Trump responded Thursday to the news that Abrams would be giving the Democratic response to his State of the Union address, reminding that she did lose in her race for governor.

Congressman Joe Kennedy, who gave the Democratic response in 2018, advised Abrams to lose her chapstick, referring to the ribbing he got over using too much chapstick, which made it appear he was drooling.
