Career House Rep. John Lewis has decided he won’t attend the 2017 Presidential Inaugural because he doesn’t know how to work out his infant issues.
Lewis has decided that President-elect Donald Trump is not legitimate in his eyes, so he is going stay home from the inauguration. Well, I have a challenge for Congressman Lewis, if he thinks Trump is not legitimate and he doesn’t want to take part in the inauguration, why not resign his seat?
If Lewis wants to have an attitude and grandstand to gain attention, then why not step down from his congressional seat in protest? I’ll tell you why it’s because he is a coward. He’s only doing this, so he receives a pat on the back like is some civil rights march from the 1960s.
Well, I have news for you, nobody will miss you.
From Roll Call:
Civil Rights icon Rep. John Lewis will not attend President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration, charging that Trump’s presidency is illegitimate.
“I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” the Georgia Democrat told NBC’s “Meet the Press with Chuck Todd” in an interview to air this Sunday. “I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.”
Lewis was referring to the U.S. intelligence community conclusion that Russia hacked the Democratic National Committee’s computer systems with the intention of helping Trump win the presidency.
The inauguration, set for Friday Jan. 20, will be the first Lewis will miss since he came to Congress in 1986.
“You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right,” Lewis said.
Lewis it would be “very difficult” to forge a relationship with the incoming president.
“I believe in forgiveness,” Lewis said. “I believe in trying to work with people.”
Fellow House Democrats Katherine M. Clark of Massachusetts and Barbara Lee of California also recently announced they would not attend Trump’s inauguration.
Anyone who says that they believe in forgiveness and they believe in trying to work with people but then turn around in the same sentence and says that it will be very difficult to work with the incoming president is a hypocrite and can’t be trusted.
