Trump is in yet another kerfuffle with a Democrat. This time with Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga. In an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, Lewis said it will be difficult to work with Trump. “It’s going to be hard. It’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”
Many would say, so what? We all know who Lewis is. He is, as the title unambiguously states, a Democrat hack and race hustler – like so many other old time civil rights leaders – most who parlayed their “struggles” into cushy government or activist jobs, where the only qualification one needs is to be black … oh, and liberal.
Trump could have let it go, afraid, like most Republicans, to hit back at such an icon of the civil rights movement – especially on the eve of MLK Day. But that’s not his style. Instead Trump took his favorite venue, Twitter, and hit back at Lewis.
