Another day, another Twitter feud started by the President-elect Donald Trump. This time, he's after Civil Rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-GA).
Lewis said in a recent interview with "Meet the Press" he would not be attending Trump's inauguration because he did not see the PEOTUS as a genuine leader and cited allegations that Russians helped sway the elections. This will be the first presidential inauguration he misses since he began serving in Congress three decades ago.
"I don't see this President-elect as a legitimate president," Lewis said. "You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right."
Trump took to Twitter (obviously) to counter-strike.
Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to...... — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 14, 2017
mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk - no action or results. Sad! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 14, 2017
While you avoided the draft, John Lewis risked his life for equality in America. You'll never even dream of such selfless patriotism, Donald https://t.co/gTWwfzkwkH — Evan McMullin (@Evan_McMullin) January 14, 2017
Lewis is one of a handful of other congressmen and women are also not attending the inauguration in protest of the election results and Trump's history of bigotry. Looks like 3 Doors Down won't even be able to save this event.
