    “Don’t interrupt your enemy when he is in the middle of defeating himself!”

  2. Trust me, the soul of John Lewis is happy Trump didn’t show up.

    • @Color Purple just like Obama? Maybe you should look on computer, being a blind follower is not good. Then you know he as racist. Obama corrupt constitutional violations, scandals and more, like Obama’s family’s connection to the CIA. Prove me wrong?

    • @Color Purple I just looked , you might want to

    • Color Purple touché

      Trump will go down as the worst president with no political experience whatsoever.Big Mistake everyone who voted and supported this dweed.

    • @Color Purple John Lewis

      He should have been at
      President Trump’s inauguration
      With a Giant Sign
      To stop The Viionce and Drugs
      In The Neighbourhood

    This is nuts. There are people in his own cabinet that didn’t attend his inauguration.

    John Louis did more for the country in two days than trump has in 4 years.

    If they are not dictators he doesn’t find them impressive at all. He’s a fricking child

  6. Orange baby: He didn’t go to MY party, so I’m not going to his funeral.😭 How pathetic‼️

    Why do y’all keep calling him President! *THERE’S NOTHING PRESIDENTIAL ABOUT HIM!!!!* He’s a selfish man child 😡

    He’s such a small little man- he acts like a toddler. I’m so tired of having to wait to vote him out!

  9. Wow.. what a statement. “Nobody has done more for Black Americans than I have.” What a clown!

    The most classless President of all time.

    “He didn’t come to my inauguration but no one has done more for black……..”
    Small man indeed.

    • @mintymus where is your source of info? I actually didn’t expect one. All that thanks to Trump. great. As far as John Lewis he was a racist, corrupt, racist agitator. No surprise about any of it.

    • @John Galt John, I’m not going to do all the work for you. What worked for you all your life won’t work here.

      You and I can agree on Lewis, he was a piece of garbage.

    • @mintymus What worked for me all my life? Things changed every year thru out my life.

    • Krishna Choppara | August 6, 2020 at 8:36 AM | Reply

      mintymus so therefore you refuse to provide a source? That seems like it would discredit your argument.

    • @Krishna Choppara Krishna, clearly you haven’t ever had to do anything for yourself. Here’s my sources: CNN, Fox, MSNBC. Anymore questions?

  12. All about him. All about him. We can see the narcissism. Again.

  13. Machelle Sabb | August 4, 2020 at 2:23 PM | Reply

    He is a sad sad man because he wants everything to be about him 🥵🥵🥵

  14. “My inauguration… My this … My that…” Gimme a break. What a loser.

  15. He is a disgrace, please get him out. I can’t with him, I just can’t.

    Trump is the exact opposite of John Lewis.

    • Race baiting… Humm. So Charlottesville wasn’t, the KKK isn’t, killing black people over and over again isn’t, red lining isn’t, pushing a n agenda of violent race/ethnic division isn’t, sequestration of Native Americans on to land’s that are barely habitatable isn’t… let me guess, you own a MAGA hat and think wearing a mask in public violates your civil rights. #Nice

    • Wrong, so wrong. Ask computer was John Lewis, racist, corrupt, racist agitator, I dare you

    • Henry Seldon | August 5, 2020 at 2:27 PM | Reply

      @John Galt Poor you.

    • Marilyn Reallon | August 5, 2020 at 4:10 PM | Reply

      @G Money have you spent your entire life being stupid as well!

    • @Marilyn Reallon the lost will always be lost, that’s what cognitive dissonance is all about, blame victim rather that face actual ugly truths.

  17. Of course he doesn’t. Is this a surprise? A real coward will never praise a true hero.

  18. Queen Consciousness | August 4, 2020 at 6:20 PM | Reply

    Of course he doesn’t know. He doesn’t know history. He sounds like a 5 year old holding a grudge because you didn’t come to their birthday party.

  19. Queen Consciousness | August 4, 2020 at 6:26 PM | Reply

    👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽for the reporter who didn’t let Trump off the hook on this question 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

  20. Kinda like a spoiled 13 year old girl, “I don’t like her; she didn’t come to my birthday party!!”
