Trump talked to Ainsley Earhardt today about John Lewis’s nasty talk about Trump. Especially that John Lewis won’t be attending the Inauguration for the first time.
Except that’s not true. John Lewis also skipped George W. Bush’s Inauguration.
Trump noted that John Lewis got caught. John Lews got caught in a “very bad lie.”

“President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday said that Rep. John Lewis’s (D-Ga.) got caught in a “pretty bad lie” when he claimed that he never previously boycotted a presidential inauguration.
A 2001 report from The Washington Post indicates that Lewis also boycotted George W. Bush’s inauguration with a similar challenge to the legitimacy of his presidency.
‘So he got caught, and it’s pretty bad. And it’s making him look bad, frankly. . . He conveniently doesn’t remember, how do you forget if you go to an inauguration, I can tell you, when I was at the inauguration, you don’t forget something like that. . . This is a transition, and a very important transition … we have to have a smooth transition, and President Obama understands that very well, and that’s why he’s been so gracious, he added. . . . And I think for [Lewis] to have grandstanded, because I think he just grandstanded … and then he got caught in a very bad lie.'”
Trump is right!
