The president-elect just flipped out on Twitter for a second time today on Georgia’s U.S. Representative John Lewis.
Trump wrote, “Congressman John Lewis should finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities of the U.S. I can use all the help I can get!”

Trump’s comments are in response to Rep. Lewis stating in an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press that he does not take Trump’s about to begin presidential administration as legitimate. Lewis based his feelings on the fact that Russia waged an unprecedented propaganda campaign in the U.S. ahead of the presidential election, tipping the race for the White House in Trump’s favor.
Lewis added that he would join a then-handful of House Democrats in not attending Trump’s inauguration at all.
And as is already long well known, the president-elect takes even the slightest issue that anyone raises with him and turns it into an apocalyptic assault on everything that his supporters hold dear, with absolutely zero regard for the truth.
Trump tweeted earlier on Saturday along the same lines as his most recent tweet, writing, “Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart.”
Trump evidently didn’t get the memo after his first tweet that he, quite simply, has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about.
Lewis doesn’t need to “finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner cities” of the United States. He’s literally been doing that for decades on end. John Lewis is literally one of the most well known leaders of the Civil Rights movement that rocked America for the first time a few decades ago, having, among many other things, helped organize a Civil Rights march on Washington, D.C.
Has Trump never heard of Wikipedia-checking the things he claims in his tweets?
