Really bad optics.

John Lewis was an a-hole to Trump, so I don't blame Trump for focusing on other matters during this chaotic time in our nation's history.

From 2017 ...

"In an exclusive interview with NBC News' "Meet the Press," Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., said he does not believe Donald Trump is a "legitimate president," citing Russian interference in last year’s election."

Maybe Trump doesn't think Lewis is legitimately dead.

Trump lied; 147,000 died. Death toll rising. Trump virus is out of control. Economy limped dicked like most MAGATs. No amount of underage porn and blue pills gonna bring Cletus' pecker or rodeo back to life. Gettin' your kids ready for back to school? Hope they don't bring home the HOAX Trump virus to you and racist grandpappy.

While Trump was hiding today from a deceased civil rights icon, you know who wasn't afraid to go to the capital?

Joe Biden. He even talked with Nancy. So much for the bunker myth.

At least there was one person in DC being presidential today.

Anonymous said...

Did he call someone a dog-faced pony soldier? Attack people in his crowds in demented ways? That sure was presidential.

Also, let us know who he decides should be black, he's pretty clear that you're not black if you don't vote for him. Highly presidential moment.

When he's not groping children or shoving his fingers into his campaign staffers. All extremely presidential.

And then he went back to the bunker for applesauce.

John Lewis skipped the inaugurations of Donald Trump and George W. Bush because he thought they were both illegitimately elected. The man wasn't the class act that some Dems would have you believe.

Anonymous said...

Joe needs to get out the bunker and do some live interviews without a teleprompter. The American people aren't going to elect someone who has lost their ability to put complete thoughts together without reading from a screen.

Trump is so racist that he worked hard to ensure black and Hispanic unemployment reached record lows before China sent the coronavirus over here to destroy our economy. The man was disgusted by the George Floyd killing.

Good for Trump.
Lewis hated him. Why should he go to his funeral?

They have been dragging his body all over the country for a week.
He must be one overripe melon by now. Put his ass in the ground already.

Yes, Biden was presidential today.

Today, we also found out Donnie (in addition to his long history of assaulting 2 dozen women, wandering into teenage pageant dressing room to see naked children, and wishing a good friend child sex trafficker well from a White House press conference) had yet another dementia moment.

Turns out he just imagined that invitation to throw out the first pitch at a Yankees game just to brag about something. Trump didn't like Fauci throwing a first pitch, so he made up a story about his good friend NY baseball owner inviting him in August and asking if they would have a big crowd. So now he has to make up an excuse about being to busy with the vaccine to go to get out of the fake event. The Yankee organization has no idea what he's talking about.

This is batshit cray-cray stuff. Trump belongs in a loony bin.

Despite the local Stormfront crowd activity above, John Lewis is a civil rights icon. He marched with MLK, he took many beatings, and championed non-violent protests for change.

Trump? Well, he's still incredibly small, petty, sad, and racist. And black unemployment is about 40% (as is Hispanic unemployment). Historical levels bad. That's his record for reelection. Good luck winning that black vote in November.
