Trump infuriated by Lewis’ and Democrats’ questions of legitimacy

The Twitter feud between Donald Trump and civil rights hero Rep. John Lewis dominated political chatter in Washington over the weekend, highlighting questions of legitimacy and racism that Democrats hope will dog the next administration.

The fallout from Mr. Trump’s tweets blasting Mr. Lewis after the Georgia Democrat said he doesn’t see the Republican as a “legitimate president” was the lead story on every Sunday political talk show, with the Trump transition team defending the president-elect.

Reince Priebus, the incoming White House chief of staff, called on President Obama to tell Democrats to stop trying to delegitimatize the election of Mr. Trump.

    Just because Rep. Lewis doesn’t like Donald Trump doesn’t mean he is not the legitimate winner of the presidential contest. We need to remember that Hillary and her campaign’s emails were hacked because of their own actions. Their emails became worthwhile reading because they outlined the corruption and dirty tricks of Hillary rotten Clinton and her cronies at the DNC.

    Lewis is illegitimate. Martin Luther KINGS niece voted for President Donald Trump, she is respectful polite and Dr King as all Americans should be very proud of this fine woman. I had a dream, and that dream was transforming. Politicians hacks and parasites with insane rhetoric make that dream a nightmare. John Lewis is the kind Abraham Lincoln freed, but had to return to his slave owner. John Lewis needs to be taken off the shelf he is way past his expiration date.

      fuel for you Askjrsk: … Check it before you use it.. 🙂

      Lets look at our Constitution. Reading (now consider yourself a patriot that just overcame a tyrannical government) You come to article 1, section 8, clause, paragraph 10. Congress shall have the power to define and punish offences against The Law of Nations.. Maybe we better read The Law of Nations to see just what power our new Congress has.. So we read The Law of Nations. Pay special attention in book 1, chapter 19, article 212.. After we finish The Law of Nations, we go back to reading the Constitution. Coming to article II, section 1, clause 5, we read that no person except a “natural born Citizen” of the United States shall be eligible for the office of president. Didn’t we read what a “natural born Citizen” was in The Law of Nations? Yes — “born on the land with parents as citizens”.. Note parents and citizens are both plural. Here we have a problem, Obama has produced a birth certificate showing born in Hawaii with a father who was a citizen of Kenya (makes Obama not eligible). .. Oh sorry that birth certificate has been proven to be false, but there is another birth certificate in the British archives filed there by Kenya showing Obama born in Kenya with a father who was a citizen of Kenya.. (makes Obama twice not eligible).. Now does it sound like Barack Obama is a “natural born Citizen” of the United States? If the answer is no then he is not eligible to be president of the United States, and everything he has done, every rule of law he has signed are NULL and VOID.

    It amazes me that the Democrat Party, which has been responsible for promoting racism throughout the history of the party right up until the current moment, continues to pretend that it is a defender of civil rights rather than what it truly is. On a day commemorating Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., hateful democrats continue to oppose all that King fought for.

    I believe Mr.Lewis is part of the ‘Black Caucas’ ….it’s 2017 not 1957! What happened to …

    I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

    “A genuine leader is not a searcher for consensus but a molder of consensus.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

    nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells
    him it is right.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

    “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

    I am of the opinion that the ‘Civil Rights Hero’ is locked in the past for political expedience and without his ‘ Civil Rights Heroness’ he is nothing but a person that has succumbed to his bitterness, despite MLK’s advice to never do that.MLK was all about moving forward….

    walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

It will be like in Germany where it took big bucks overnight to buy a loaf of bread. to many think it can not happen again. Our 20 Trillion debt can triple and then some over night.

  • exoticdoc2 says:

    Lewis (along with all liberals) is a fool. Whoever hacked the libs all they did was expose the truth. There was no propaganda, no lies, no distortions of the truth, just exposure of the scummy things the libs were doing and saying. The libs are mad not because they were lied about, but because they were exposed, big difference. And if you want to talk an illegitimate president, then point straight at the Obamanation. He managed to cover up the fact he was born and Kenya, and then the criminal pulled illegal move after illegal move. The scumbag should have been in prison long ago.

    1. The Redhawk says:

      sounds good to me

    2. Askjrsk says:

      The only hackers were OBAMA and Hillary. HILLARY cannot deny the Podesta emails. The 300 email dump today by the FBI, might be her final undoing. These emails from CLINTON are confidential mailed to not government people. This is a No no, CLINTON.

  • the whistler says:

    To paraphrase a Democrat icon…”It depends on what your definition of ‘legitimate’ is!!”.
    The so called ‘popular vote’ had Hillary roughly 2.9M votes above Trump. Of these 2.9M votes the States of New York and California accounted for a 5M plus vote in Hillary’s favor …which means out of the other 48 States ( 55 States for our Democrat USA geography whizzes) Trump beat Hillary by 2.1M votes. Also of the 2.9M vote surplus that Hillary had… approx. 1.5M of that surplus came from New York City/Westchester Co.and the remaining 1.4 M came from LA Co..

    So, based on the Left’s mendacious claims that the Electoral College is flawed…the evidence actually verifies why it was implemented. The fallacious argument of the Left is ,without equivocation ,that two large cities should control the direction of the entire USA. The Founding Fathers ,in their wisdom, were of the belief that the majority of the States should control the direction of the Federal Government. Incidentally, Constitutionally the Federal Government is supposed to work for the States not the other way around!!

          My distinct PLEASURE … Another thing the (D) Fubar party Klowns forget is that 30 if 50 States VOTED FOR OUR NEXT PRESIDENT….and THAT IS A MAJORITY.
          even using ODUMBO MATH

          1. Retired says:

            Democrat math, 1+2= 5

          2. The Redhawk says:

            BUT in the case of the PUTIN ELECTION WE won 20 ( Coasts and ILL counties ) and 50 is a MINORITY of the 57 States .. as the Fubar Obama party of MORONS seems to be “thinking”….20+30=57

      1. the whistler says:

        Thank you Askjrsk….are you AKL’s version of Mr. Mxyplyzyk, Superman’s antangonist??? Just the 5 year old part of me wondering.
        I enjoy your insights …too bad AKL is in denial.

        1. Askjrsk says:

          Thankyou. Didn’t quite know what you were saying to me but it’s good Im sure. I have blocked AKL but know she is a pain. Her question. Why do you lie? A real pisser. Anyway enjoyed your comment
