Last year, Lewis boycotted President Trump's inauguration on grounds that Trump was not “a legitimate president,” given that “the Russians participated in having this man get elected.” Now that his Russia delusion has proven to be nothing more than a pack of malicious lies, Lewis is ready to move on to his next crusade without missing a beat. Specifically, he will be boycotting Trump's upcoming State Of The Union (SOTU) address because he “cannot in all good conscience be in a room” with a man who “knows something about being a racist,” who has racism “in his DNA,” and who seeks to “fan the flames of racism and bigotry.”
In other words, John Lewis is the living embodiment of psychological projection.
And Lewis doesn't just disagree with Donald Trump. He doesn't just dislike him. He thoroughly hates Trump; he loathes him; he detests him. Thus he will spend the remainder of Trump's time in office going out of his way to publicly degrade the president, and to cast him as the moral equivalent of a Klansman.
By contrast, Lewis was exceedingly happy to attend President Obama's two inaugurations and his eight SOTU addresses. He wasn't the least bit troubled by Obama's longtime connections to revolutionary Marxist terrorists like Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, or to unapologetic racists and Jew-haters like Jeremiah Wright, Al Sharpton, Rashid Khalidi, and Ali Abunimah. Nor was he disquieted by Obama's multiple meetings with representatives of Black Lives Matter, a black supremacist organization, or his multiple laudatory speeches to the National Council of La Raza (“The Race”), a Hispanic supremacist organization.
