Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed pushed back Saturday on President-elect Donald Trumps assessment of civil rights leader and U.S. Rep. John Lewis district.
In a series of tweets, Reed said: John Lewis is an American hero & a national treasure. Period. Full stop.
That PEOTUS Trump would attack Congressman Lewis on MLK Day weekend for all talk no action when he bled to actually Make America Great is why far less than half the country supports him at the dawn of his presidency.
Trump said Lewiss district was in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) in an early Saturday tweet.
Leaders throughout the metro area voiced their opinions Saturday on the controversy, including Georgia Republicans.

My son recently attended a conference in Atlanta. Yes, it is crime ridden. What John Lewis did 50 years ago has been destroyed by his racial hatred and partisanship since.
Kasim? With a name like that, why am I supposed to care what he thinks about some old racebaiting domestic terrorist?
His district is apocalyptic. Full stop.
Here we go.
The “civil rights icons” of yesterday are no more than race whores in 2017 Jackson, Lewis, et al.
If they truly wanted to honor King, who had his own issues btw, then they’d work for a smooth transition to a Trump Presidency
Instead they continue to pad their own pockets with bigoted hate towards Trump and excuse making for hilLIAR and 5 decades of white Democratic overlords
I’ll be Lewis’ constituents are the worst of the worst and that POS could care less. Keep em down, Johnny Boy. It’s all about you and your buddies now
John Lewis is an American hero & a national treasure. Period. Full stop. “
BS....he is a racist hack
The racially gerrymandered “black” districts are a mess and produce the worst Representatives in Congress. Sheila Jackson-Lee (flag on Mars), Hank Johnson (Guam capsizing), Maxine Waters (Socialize your companies) etc, etc.
So was McLame.
They don’t even try to defend Congressman Lewis’s record.
They can’t- he’s just been “Miss Nancy’s boy”.
These minority-majority Districts are a target rich environment for Republican candidates now that Trump’s in charge.
Yes, Lewis is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT untouchable, because he milked a walk some 50 years ago into a lengthy political career.
He can say ANYTHING and ANY response is RACISM!
John Lewis: "Donald Trump rapes children."
Donald Trump: "No I don't. That's absurd."
Media: "HOW DARE YOU! JOHN LEWIS IS A CIVIL RIGHTS GOD! YOU ARE A RACIST!!!!"
Hey a**hole Lewis took the first punch.
Don’t be foolish
LOL! I do the same thing with Schindler’s List!
So, because John Lewis is a “national hero” or has some other superlative status due to his work in the civil rights movement, does that mean he can never be criticized for anything??? Is that really what we are saying???
I think his comments about Trump not being a legitimate president are not only factually inaccurate, but offensive to those of us who understand the constitution and understand that Trump was elected in a constitutional election process. Apparently Mr. Lewis does not honor his own oath of office to uphold the constitution of the United States.
Or perhaps he doesn’t really understand the constitution, and how presidents are elected.
Such comments about Trump being illegitimate can only enflame controversy and political discord. There is no reason for Lewis to have made such inflammatory factually inaccurate statements.
Heck, if Lewis wants to go down that road, we could question how legitimate a congressman he is.
The survivors of the King era have turned his “dream” on its head. Instead of a color-blind society in which content of character matters more than the color of ones skin, all they care about is skin color. Mentioning character content or lack of it is racist to these racists.
But notice how none of them have an opinion of Lewis’s original comment.
Most significant eyebrows in America's history.
Poor old Donald Trump can’t wake up in the morning without wiping his **** on woman’s hair and offending a black person
BS....he is a racist hack
He better read his bible more...his time is getting close.
