  1. Typhoid trump ” I won’t attend”
    Everyone ” you were not invited”

    😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵😵 Person woman man camera tv 😵😵😵😵😵😵😵

  2. I don’t know about you folks but I am getting more than sick of a elected president , Trump, calling all of us out there who do not worship him, names and saying we are all about destroying America. We the people , Mr. Trump ,, are far more patriotic than you .

    • @Carlene Inu thank you I hope he reads your post. So many misinformed americans

    • @Ken Algpeus we will be fine, thanks for your support. most Americans see through the con. And we will vote in our strong democracy and over ride the tabloid potus.

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 yea, kinda like your tea party Republicans after Obama. Biden will bring common sense and respect. And you will love it.

      He has no idea what Patriotism is about. Everyone needs to not let him divide us. We can be in seperate parties and still agree on the fundamental ideals this country was founded upon. We can even expand more from the foundations and do better together. We can still respect each other as humans despite any of our differences. That would be a beautiful America right there.

    • @Jeannie Farnsworth I agree 💯 percent . Actually many in my circle who had hoped for Trump are already wanting to talk again with civility .

    That was like Congressman Lewis speaking from the grave. Thank you, President Obama!

      I am proud to tell my grandchildren that I lived to see a well respected and honest Black President, President Barack Obama.

    I have more respect for ALL of our past Presidents now than I ever had for them in office.
    They serve as our modern Founding Fathers conscience.

      I told my 10 year old grandson, “the founding fathers must be rolling over in their graves”. Now he’s very interested in the Constitution, so I gave him one.

  6. Trump is a weak little boy! Mr. Lewis had friends on both sides of the aisle. He was a civil rights legend and deserves respect. Trump can’t even be mature enough to attend his funeral?! What a pos 🤬 RIP Mr. Lewis as well as Mr. Cain 😞

    All 3 Presidents Obama, Bush & Clinton believe in John Lewis Voting Rights.

      @Jeff Woods omg the ignorance 🤣🤣🤣 YOUR DESCRIPTION OF A PROFESSIONAL POLITICIAN DESCRIBES TRUMP! THE DESCRIPTION YOU GAVE – “PRETENDS THEY CARE AND DO NOTHING” – THAT DESCRIBES TRUMP! It’s sad & pathetic that your having such a hard time comprehending this🤣🤣🤣✌

    • @Tizzle – Heroic Stars No it describes the three retatds mentioned in the original post and no matter how much you try to say it is President Trump, it really shows how low your IQ is..I’m beginning to think I can understand why people like yourself think biden is a viable candidate..

      @Jeff Woods “pretends they care but does nothing”…that’s trump!!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

    RIP Senator John Lewis! THANK YOU FOR YOUR LIFE LONG DEDICATION TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

  9. Michele Stephenson | July 30, 2020 at 6:56 PM | Reply

    And you have a president who can’t even show his face. Shame on you trump you sad boy!

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 stop the crap

    • @Keith Johnson – Shelby GT500 sam adams makes a good beer too

    • Exactly …. 3 former presidents show up to honor him. And the LOSER Chump cannot even be dignified enough to act like a real president. Chump is simply unfit for office and a despicable human being. He will be tossed OUT in Nov/20 and very deservedly so.

    • Who cares. We all know that Trump couldn’t begin to understand what Mr. Lewis was about. Trump would have ruined the occasion with his presence.

    • No one wanted trump there.

  10. I’m glad the freeloader was not there. He has no business being at such a solemn occasion with such an amazing man. We had real Presidents there. We don’t need fake ones.

    • Donee Stoner | July 30, 2020 at 8:33 PM | Reply

      I’m so glad he wasn’t there. He would have ruined the solemn beauty.

    • Well Stated Diane. His appearance would only have been for a Campaign Photo OP which would be at risk for raising the Dead. He would have brought all of his Evil Zombies and Left their Evil Spirits. It would have been Grossly Disrespectful If he had showed his Demonic Ugly Wicked Face. The Face of a Monster 💙.

      Well said.

      Amen. This fake “president” is useless if any kind of heart , brain or emotion is involved.

  11. There are men that are larger than life. Then there are tiny men, with tiny brains and tiny hands. We have an impeached tiny man pretending to be president.

    • Yolanda Ramirez | July 31, 2020 at 12:45 AM | Reply

      Maxmartin . Thank you I couldn’t said it better, hope for november for con man vote out of office and all the corrupt people around him, seek of them

  12. I love the respect that this country showed for John Lewis despite what the current president has shown. R.I. Paradise Sir.

  13. Forrest Trump | July 30, 2020 at 7:04 PM | Reply

    The president that’s not invited to weddings or funerals.

  14. Poor t’rump. Sitting alone in a bathrobe, crying into a bucket of chicken, rage tweeting to fill the empty hole where his soul should be. 😢😭

  15. 3 Real Presidents showed up and showed their respect. Trump = Illegitimate, fake, wanna be dictator. Obama said it’s not only good that we remember him, but that we move what he would die for, forward. Congress should pass legislation to ensure that there are sufficient polling places, staffed, mail in ballots, postal service guarantees, dates, and people to process and count them. Any delays would only benefit Trump and his GOP party to cast doubt about the results. There should be NO doubt! Congress has 3 months to pass legislation, and make it law so that ALL the states are abiding by fair practices and giving people equal opportunities to vote!
    What I got from Obama’s eulogy was that when he mentioned that each vote, whether we are famous or not, rich or poor, GOP, Democrat or Independent, it puts us all on equal footing..my vote counts just as much as yours!

      Spanky is a malignant narcissist who’s _still_ mad Lewis didn’t address him as “Massa” and instead talked back to him.

  16. Trump and Fox News sponsors proved their racism today
