It appears the free market has spoken and it is with Representative John Lewis. The twitter-attack on the civil rights icon by the Twitler happened prior to Lewis’ Meet the Press interview even airing on television. Surely adding to Trump’s dismay with Rep. Lewis, The New York Times has had the seasoned public servant’s graphic novel “March” on the best seller list. And now, thanks to Mar a Lago Mussolini, the boost in sales has to be another blow to his poor ego.
Of course Trumpanzee’s, who believe in the free market and free speech (only when it applies to their hateful rhetoric, and certainly not truth about their tiny fingered crusader), had some deplorable things to say to Congressman Lewis.
Now, any political hack like Glenn Beck, Tomi Lahren, or Steven Crowder will tell you it wasn’t about race and bashing President Obama. And, of course, they are lying.
All you have to do is read these vile posts to know what is in the hearts and minds of Trump’s supporters.
It’s hard to believe that the party that (inaccurately) celebrates freeing the slaves out of bondage is happy to bash a man who has spent his life fighting for ALL Americans’ civil rights. The free market they love so much did what these whiny teabaggers couldn’t, it showed Congressman John Lewis respect for what he’s done.
It’s only fitting that days before his Inauguration the President-elect has the lowest approval rating in recent history and Congressman Lewis is shown the respect he deserves by the skyrocketing book sales in the free market that the Republican party and Donald J. Trump both love to cherish more than anything.
Congressman Lewis doesn’t need adoration or anyone to boost his ego when the American people are more than happy to witness and applaud the admiration of the still current President of the United States.
We all admire Mr. Lewis for his courage and conviction as hatred continues to be thrust upon him, even in 2017.
