Socialist John Lewis In Denial: ‘I Don’t See Trump as a Legitimate President’ [VIDEO]
Congressman Chris Collins of New York is blaming rhetoric from Democrats against President Donald Trump for Wednesday morning’s shooting of GOP Majority Whip Steve Scalise, the third most-powerful House Republican. Perhaps most controversially, he accused civil rights icon, Democratic Rep. John Lewis, of “pouting,” in addition to contributing to the current environment of violence coming from the left.
“… it’s like a spoiled child, and we’ve seen it with the others.. and what do spoiled little kids do? They run around and throw a tantrum,” Collins said.
The Democratic National Committee announced that Resistance Summer would begin in June. James Hodgkinson, a Bernie Sanders volunteer, delivered by opening fire on Republicans playing baseball. What made James Hodgkinson believe that stopping the repeal of ObamaCare was a matter of life and death? Or, as he put it, “Republicans Want to Deny Most All Americans Health Care”?
Congressman John Lewis claimed that; “the repeal would kill.”
Like all the other Marxists on the left, John Lewis is saying that he does not recognize President-elect Donald Trump as a legitimate president. Too freaking bad, because he is. Lewis is claiming that there was Russian interference in the election and it cost Hillary Clinton the presidency. The Russians had absolutely nothing to do with the actual voting and Clinton lost the election for a number of reasons… chief among them, she sucked. She also campaigned in the wrong states and didn’t even remotely appear lifelike.
John Lewis earned his street cred as a civil rights activist. But he’s oh, so much more. This man is another community organizer in the mold of Barack Obama. He has solid ties to Democratic Socialists of America and the Communist Party USA. He is also a fan of CAIR. He is of course pro-illegal immigrantion and a staunch supporter of Cuba. He is a member of the Congressional Black Caucus and the Congressional Progressive Caucus. Now in his 70’s, Lewis is an extreme social justice advocate. So if he doesn’t like Donald Trump, I consider that a good thing.
From NBC News:
In an exclusive interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) said he does not believe Donald Trump is a “legitimate president,” citing Russian interference in last year’s election.
Asked whether he would try to forge a relationship with the president-elect, Lewis said that he believes in forgiveness, but added, “it’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”
When pressed to explain why, he cited allegations of Russian hacks during the campaign that led to the release of internal documents from the Democratic National Committee, and Hillary Clinton’s campaign co-chairman, John Podesta.
“I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” Lewis told NBC News’ Chuck Todd.
The long-serving Georgia Congressman and civil rights leader also said that he would not attend President-elect Trump’s swearing-in. “I don’t plan to attend the inauguration. It will be the first one that I miss since I’ve been in Congress. You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right.” He will join most of the Democrats who instead will be meeting to plan how to obstruct Trump’s presidency. I call that un-American and I am not surprised in the least. No big loss.
“It’s not right, that’s not fair,” Lewis said of the hacking. “It’s not the open, democratic process.” And the only reason he would say that is simply because Hillary Clinton was not elected. It’s just that straight forward. There is nothing honest or upstanding about Lewis. Trump won the election honestly and in a fair contest and those such as Lewis will never accept that. Too bad… Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States in a week. They’ll have to live with disappointment while the rest of us celebrate. And if they are looking for a fight, they are sure to find one.
