    Before the inauguration is just a distant dot in the rear view mirror, let's not forget the movement Congressman John Lewis led -- the movement that encouraged a large number of liberal House Democrats to boycott the big day in Washington. Let's not forget it because it tells us something important about the people we elevate to hero status: that given enough time, even icons can become tedious. And, sadly, Congressman John Lewis has. Lewis was a genuine civil rights hero who earned his stripes on March 7, 1965, a day that has come to be known, for good reason,...

    "BREAKING: Trump-Hating Democratic @RepJohnLewis DIDN’T PAY TAXES On His Nearly $1 Million Fancy DC Townhouse" Trump-hating Democratic Georgia congressman John Lewis didn’t pay property taxes on his nearly $1 million fancy Washington, D.C. townhouse on Capitol Hill, despite being in Congress for decades, where the salary for a Representative starts at $174,000 per year. Lewis was in the news recently for saying he doesn’t see President-elect Donald J. Trump as “a legitimate president” because of the #RussianHackers Democratic conspiracy theory. Public records show he avoided paying property taxes on his DC townhouse at 219 3rd Street SE on Capitol Hill:

    GOP-Hating Rep. John Lewis Didn’t Pay His Real Estate Taxes Instead of finding fault with the new president, maybe Rep. John Lewis should worry about paying his real estate taxes. The well-paid congressman didn’t pay taxes on his nearly $1 million posh D.C. townhouse on Capital Hill. Rep. Lewis said Donald Trump isn’t a “legitimate” president, same thing he said about George Bush, but he’s not a legitimate taxpayer.

    John Lewis Disgraces Himself If a good man turns bad, are we required to pretend, for the rest of his life, that he is still good? Do such a man's earlier good deeds render him strictly off-limits from any and all subsequent criticism until the end of time? Is he entitled to be revered indefinitely as a hero, an icon, or a saint, even if he has spent the past half-century proving himself to be a vile race-baiter, an ally of America's enemies, and a liar who repeatedly bears false witness against his fellow man? We can answer all these...

    John Lewis’s Record in Congress Is Less Than Heroic The Democrat deserves an honored place in history. But Trump has a point about what he’s done lately. Jason L. Riley If Donald Trump had been referring to Rep. John Lewis’s civil-rights record when he wrote on Twitter Saturday that the congressman was “all talk” and “no action,” the president-elect might need a refresher course in U.S. history. One of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s closest allies, Mr. Lewis was on the front lines of the successful fight to end Jim Crow. But for anyone who bothers to check out the...

    The back-and-forth between President-elect Donald Trump and civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis, D-Ga., dominated news coverage over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. It began on Jan. 14 with an excerpt from an interview that Lewis did for NBC’s Meet the Press, in which he said that while he believes in forgiveness, "it's going to be very difficult" to forge a relationship with Trump. "I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president." In his Meet the Press interview, Lewis underlined the importance of his concerns about Trump by saying, "It will be the first (inauguration) that I...

    John Lewis didn’t lie when he said he’d never skipped a presidential inauguration as a sitting member of Congress. snip His staff clarified the mixup on Tuesday, when they told Washington Post’s Glenn Kessler the 76-year-old had just forgotten. John Lewis’s staff says he forgot that he boycotted George W. Bush’s inauguration: “That was almost 20 years ago.” https://t.co/Jpnpq1QYyI — Glenn Kessler (@GlennKesslerWP) January 17, 2017

    President-elect Donald Trump is paying too much heed to the ranting of civil-rights veteran John Lewis: The Georgia congressman’s been playing the same tune about every top Republican for years now. Yes, Lewis’ accusation was baseless and blatantly partisan: He said Trump isn’t a “legitimate president” because of Russian hacking, and he’d skip the inauguration, “the first one I’ve missed since I’ve been in Congress.” Oops: He didn’t attend George W. Bush’s inauguration in 2001, either — charging that Dubya wasn’t truly elected. Last year, Lewis said Trump “reminds me so much of the things that George Wallace said and...

    Democratic U.S. Rep. John Lewis, a civil rights leader who says he doesn't see Donald Trump as a "legitimate president," should be grateful for all that Republican presidents have done for black people, GOP Gov. Paul LePage said Tuesday. LePage, who's white, said on WVOM-FM that the black Democratic Georgia congressman needs a history lesson. "We're sick of the silver-tongued people. How about John Lewis last week? Criticizing the president?" LePage said. "You know, I will just say this: John Lewis ought to look at history. It was Abraham Lincoln that freed the slaves. It was Rutherford B. Hayes and...

    The eruption of hostilities between President-elect Donald Trump and civil rights icon Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) may be recorded as just one more example of what has become standard Twitter retaliation for Trump. But coming on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday weekend, it also reignited the passions around Trump’s difficult history with African Americans, the group of voters from whom he might be most alienated as he prepares to move into the White House this week. In an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Friday, Lewis said he did not regard Trump to be “a legitimate president”...

    If you thought the petty grievances of the left could not get any more trivial, think again. High on outrage but low on substance, More than 40 Democrats have announced that they will not attend President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. After calling for a recount, trying to change the Electoral College vote, and smearing Trump with false intelligence information, liberals will now sit on the sidelines scowling like a third-string quarterback whose talents are more suited for the bench.

    Didn't think he was the "true elected president". Unprecedented, huh? Not only was it John Lewis who picked the fight with Donald Trump - regardless of what you keep hearing to the contrary - but he pulled a fast one on you with the claim that he’s never done it before. First time Lewis has ever missed an inauguration since he was elected to Congress in 1986, is that right? Totally unprecedented, and all because of the unique awfulness of Donald Trump, yes?

    “I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” Representative John Lewis (D-Ga.; shown) said of Donald Trump on NBC News this past Sunday. “I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.”Not surprisingly, Trump struck back in his inimitable style, tweeting, “Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk --- no action or results. Sad!”Trump then suggested what...

    Mika Brzezinski is an unabashed liberal, someone who pushed Elizabeth Warren to run for president and subsequently became a Bernie Sanders fan. But she has also proved herself willing to criticize her own, be they politicians or, as this morning, fellow members of the MSM. On today's Morning Joe, Brzezinski first criticized CNN's Jim Acosta for his pro-John Lewis speech in the guise of a question to MLK III after his meeting with Donald Trump. A bit later, she expanded on the point in a very pointed way: "we [in the MSM] decipher Democrats and make them sound great. And...

    Bless their hearts, no one cares With the inauguration of Donald Trump just days away, Democrats are equal parts panicky, outraged, confused, and sputtering. Like a three-year-old faced with a plate of spinach, they’ve decided a doomed tantrum is their only recourse. You’ve seen the hissy-fit play out over the last few weeks, and it’s only going to escalate from here on out.
