JUST IN: Twitter Explodes After Trump Attacks American Icon John Lewis Yet Again (TWEETS)


On Saturday President-elect Donald Trump once again felt the need to criticize Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) insinuating that the congressman ignores inner-city crime.

It seems that for all of the petty, downright catty things that seem to come out of Donald Trump’s mouth he absolutely cannot tolerate, or not publicly react to even the slightest bit of critique from others. The former reality star chose to run for president and yet now that he’s been elected his impulsive, thin-skinned demeanor is still as present as it’s ever been.

On Saturday night, just two days away from Martin Luther King Day, Donald Trump decided to take another jab at the Georgia congressman, saying:

Earlier Saturday Trump posted a twoTweet message, criticizing Lewis, saying:

‘Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk – no action or results. Sad!’

All of this furious Tweeting by the man who will be sworn in as president next week was in response to John Lewis’s comments to MSNBC, stating that he did not believe Donald Trump to be a “legitimate” president because of the Russian election hacking that took place.

Well, Rep. John Lewis is a beloved civil rights hero and is also well loved by his community and many of those people took to Twitter to let Donald Trump know exactly how they feel. Below is a small portion of the responses Trump’s received on Twitter:
