Paul LePage: John Lewis Should Thank GOP for Ending Slavery


Instead of boycotting President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, civil-rights icon Rep. John Lewis should be thanking the Republican Party for ending slavery, Maine’s Republican Gov. Paul LePage said today.

Appearing on WVOM Maine radio’s George Hale and Ric Tyler Show, the firebrand governor addressed Lewis’s claims that Trump is not a “legitimate” president, LePage fired back: “John Lewis ought to look at history. It was Abraham Lincoln that freed the slaves. It was Rutherford B. Hayes and Ulysses S. Grant that fought against Jim Crow laws. A simple ‘thank you’ would suffice.” The governor also called upon Maine congresswoman Chellie Pingree to resign if she boycotts the inauguration, adding, “For some reason, the left has become so hateful and so, they are trying to bully us out of believing our constitution.” Read more at CNN.



  1. John Lewis lost whatever brains he was born with on some bridge in Alabama, back in the last millennium, when he got his head bashed. Ever since, he hasn’t said anything worth listening to.

  2. World crisis considered in future times with Trump. Lewis is smart. He is not a bad man. We can support his right to speak. LePage is stoking hate from civil war reaction in future culture. It is not humor but plainly a bad thought.

    This is yet another hate influence from a worthless office.

    Pace this one because the future with a bad president will be with more conversations. One can predict that Mr. Lewis is just the first. It will be a concern.
