Rep. John Lewis Has a ‘Thing’ with Boycotting Presidents

Georgia’s Democrat Representative, John Lewis, is no stranger to boycotting Presidents that are not in his party. He did not even reshape his reasoning between President-Elect Donald Trump and when he did the same to George Bush. If nothing else, Mr. Lewis is consistent in his mindless resistance to the will of the people.

As Written By Jim Treacher for the Daily Caller:

If I’m supposed to care that Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) is boycotting Trump’s inauguration, and if it’s somehow a big deal that Trump hit back at him like everybody knew he would, then the following item seems relevant.

From Kevin Merida at WaPo on Jan. 21, 2001, here’s a look back at the Congressional Dems who hated George Bush and couldn’t believe he was president:

“It’s kind of gloomy,” says Rep. John Conyers, the Michigan Democrat who is dean of the Congressional Black Caucus. He boards the Capitol’s underground subway en route to the swearing-in, then pulls a black ribbon from his suit pocket. “I’ve got a little pin to put on.” It’s a CBC protest pin. There’s a small piece of paper attached: This ribbon represents the fact that the will of the people was not honored in the 2000 presidential election. That’s how John Conyers feels about George W. Bush’s big moment. “But we’ve got to keep on fighting,” he adds.

Some members of the Black Caucus decided to boycott Inauguration Day; John Lewis, for instance, spent the day in his Atlanta district. He thought it would be hypocritical to attend Bush’s swearing-in because he doesn’t believe Bush is the true elected president.

Which is the exact same reason he’s ….

    Lewis is just a race-baiting instigator that hates Whitey.
