Shooting Back: Trump Tears Into John Lewis


President-elect Donald Trump today shot back at Democrat John Lewis for earlier saying he was not a “legitimate” president.

“Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump’s verbal attack comes after Lewis, as reported on, said on Friday that he did not plan on attending the president-elect’s inaugural because Trump is not, as he said, a “legitimate president.”

While Trump regularly attacks his critics on Twitter, Lewis’ status as a top Democrat and key civil rights leader has spurred talk of a potential standoff between Democrats and Republicans, with Democrats boycotting the inauguration.

Here are the tweets:


  1. Don’t talk back to John Lewis. He is an old man, who is currently speaking with embalming experts. Everyone knows his irrelevance, especially his own district. His accomplishments include marching with MLK (sometimes in the last millennium), a membership in the Congressional Black Circus, and an honorary degree from Brown University (how appropriate). Just smile, wave, and order a wreath.

  2. Trump should be arrested for a hate crime. One is NEVER allowed to criticize a person of color! Just ask McCain and Romney.
