The Internet Rips Trump After He Smears Civil Rights Hero Rep John Lewis On MLK Weekend


President-elect Donald Trump took his angry little fingers to his Twitter account early Saturday morning to attack civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis on Martin Luther King Jr. weekend. Let that sink in for a moment.

Trump was reacting to Lewis’s remarks yesterday when he said that Trump is not a legitimate president due to the Russians interfering in the election. Democrats were stunned after details were revealed in a classified briefing over FBI director James Comey’s actions. Lewis has decided to not attend the inauguration.

So, Twitter pounced on Trump’s startling attack on Lewis.

Fact: Crime has fallen by 30 percent since 2009 in Lewis’s district in Georgia.

Remember when Trump dogged President Obama for years to delegitimize his presidency? And now, we’re witnessing that same man about to occupy the White House illegitimately.
