Rep John Lewis: I Don’t See Trump As Legitimate President

Democrats simply cannot accept their loss of the election.

During an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd for “Meet the Press” on Friday, Representative John Lewis (D-GA) stated, “I don’t see the president-elect as a legitimate president. I think there was a conspiracy on the part of the Russians, and others, that helped him get elected.”

When asked if he planned to build a relationship with President-Elect Donald Trump, Lewis answered that he believes in forgiveness and trying to work with people, but that “it’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see the president-elect as a legitimate president.”

He added, “I think the Russians participated in having this man get elected, and they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton. I don’t plan to attend the Inauguration. … I think there was a conspiracy on the part of the Russians, and others, that helped him get elected. That’s not right. That’s not fair. That’s not the open, democratic process.”

[NOTE: I would have voted for Trump no matter what. And I wasn’t influenced by Russia!]

    So Podesta was a victim of a phishing scam and the Democrats believe that was the main reason for Hillary’s defeat? Silly.

    Let them harp on the Russians until they turn blue in the face and please nominate Elizabeth Warren in 2020….

    Well, all that can be done about a man like this Rep.Lewis is just ignore him. Personally I think all of the black politicians think just like this guy. As far as I can see none of them have done one thing to help the people they represent. They get out spout fire and brimstone when they are running for reelection but you never see them working to help bring good schools to their constituents or provide any help to the black community. President-elect Trump has said more about helping the blacks than any of black politicians.
