President-elect Donald Trump has once again been targeted by liberal trolls after he had the audacity to defend himself after being viciously attacked by a Democrat congressman.
Rep. John Lewis of Georgia started the firestorm when he stated that he didn’t view Trump as a “legitimate” president — a pretty low blow even some Democrats didn’t like. Trump then went on Twitter and said that Lewis should focus more on helping the “burning and crime infested inner-cities.”
Rather than let things go, Lewis decided to go one step farther and actually had the audacity to send out a fundraising email hoping to bring in a little cash over his dust-up with Trump, The Hill reported.
“Today Donald Trump attacked me on Twitter. He said that I’m ‘all talk’ and ‘no action,’” the email read. “I’ve been beaten bloody, tear-gassed, fighting for what’s right for America. I’ve marched at Selma with Dr. King. Sometimes that’s what it takes to move our country in the right direction.”

Yes, Lewis was savagely attacked when he stood up for civil rights, but what you don’t notice in that email was anything that he has accomplished while he was in Congress.
Further, Lewis was trying to play the victim here by claiming that Trump “attacked” him. Actually, Trump defended himself. Lewis was the one who fired the first salvo, and anyone who has followed along knows that.
Congressman John Lewis should finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities of the U.S. I can use all the help I can get!

All Lewis is looking to do is make a name for himself and raise a few bucks. If he actually cared about inner cities and turning America around, he would work with Trump — not try to undermine him before he is even sworn in.
Sadly, there are many liberals out there who are just like Lewis — they prefer to demonize Republicans rather than actually work with them to improve this nation.
After all, if things get better under Trump, all of a sudden all the liberal talking points are gone. How will politicians like Lewis survive if America’s inner cities are healed and the racial divisions within this nation diminish because of Trump?
