Rep. Lewis Caught In Major Lie About Inauguration, Trump ROASTS in 2 Tweets

People agree that Congressman John Lewis’ contributions to the fight for racial equality were incredibly admirable.

However, that doesn’t mean that everything he says is gospel when it comes to politics.

We learned that first hand recently when he announced that he wouldn’t be attending Donald Trump’s inauguration because Trump is not a “legitimate” president.

Lewis has stood by his claim despite the very clear fact that nothing about Trump’s victory was illegitimate.

On top of that, many people noticed another major inconsistency with his claim that he had never skipped an inauguration before…

From BizPac Review:

Enter Georgia Rep. John Lewis, whose high-profile feud with Donald Trump has ignited headlines, and raised Lewis’ profile, for days. On Sunday, he told Meet The Press host Chuck Todd that, because of supposed Russian hacking, he didn’t consider Trump “a legitimate president.”

He also said this:

“I think the Russians participated in helping get this man elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. I don’t plan to attend the inauguration. It will be the first one that I miss since I’ve been in the Congress. You cannot be at home with something that you feel is wrong.”

No, not the Russian hacking part. That’s just a red herring. How about where Lewis said this would be the “first one that I miss since I’ve been in the Congress?”

That’s not true.

Here’s the breakdown…

Donald Trump noticed this little lie as well.

He didn’t hold back on Twitter.

Congressman Lewis is wrong that Russia is the reason Hillary Clinton lost the election and he wasn’t telling the truth when he said this is the first inauguration he skipped.

It’s a shame that Congressman Lewis is having such a hard time coming to terms with Hillary Clinton’s defeat.

It will be difficult for the country to unite as long as this kind of attitude is still front and center.
