Georgia Democrat, John Lewis who was recently on ABC’s “The View,” has finally given his explanation as to why he boycotted President Trump’s amazing inauguration.
His co-host, Joy Behar asked Lewis, “Now, you boycotted the inauguration, I remember this. You didn’t go to that, and you skipped a civil rights museum opening because Trump was going to it. I certainly can feel — I feel it too. I don’t want to be anywhere near him. But there’s an argument to be made that, you know, can you pass up an opportunity to actually have a conversation with the guy because he is in a particularly powerful position at the moment? What do you think?”
Lewis answered, “Well, I felt strongly during the inauguration, the so-called inauguration that I couldn’t be at home with myself if I had to participate or be part of it. The movement taught us to withdraw from evil. And I never felt that his election was legitimate.”
