Democrat Explains Why He Boycotted Trump Inauguration

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.”
