1. It would be too painful to acknowledge the courage of a contemporary

Reminds him too much of what a moral slug 🐌 he (Trump) is

3. OTOH, I don't have time for a hypocritical passing comment on John Lewis.

I'd rather have him say nothing at all. That's his response.

6. Agreed!

The BS comment by Moscow Mitch makes me sick. He is sitting on John Lewis's voting rights bill.

Better to say nothing at all.

7. Yeah, I don't think he hasn't said anything about Lewis because he's "unable"

He hasn't said anything because he clearly doesn't want to.

Lots of tweets about protecting Confederate statues and flags, nothing about John Lewis. It's extremely obvious what's going on here.

He might as well just start wearing a hood and screaming about white power at this point. It wouldn't be much of a step down from where he already is.

10. I am glad that the traitor in chief has not said anything. We know it would all be a lie, and

there would probably even be some nasty little dig. Better he should STFU.

14. Actually, he has tweeted about it today.

Mind you, I find it unlikely that he's the actual author. Even with a grammatical error, it's a bit too eloquent.

17. That President Obama awarded John Lewis

the Presidential Medal of Freedom and Trumpsky pinned one on Rush Limbaugh says more about the content of the latter's cold, empty soul than does whether he tweeted anything or not, or the content of any possible tweet.

24. The grammar error at the end tho...

The only piece that makes it seem authentic. The sentiment is surely insincere, as evidenced by Trump's actions over decades (including placing an ad calling for the state to murder the Central Park Five).

28. Nope. The donald REALLY is a bottomless pit.

I was gonna say "human bottomless pit." But it's difficult to think of him as human.

Inhuman is probably more like it.

who John Lewis was, or what he did. He thinks he used to be Dean Martin's partner in the movies.

Doesn't deserve to remark about John Lewis. John Lewis was a person of integrity, honor and family values. tRump knows absolutely nothing about any of these topics! He can go fucking golf and I hope lightning strikes his club!!

42. Well, the thing about Trump is that he hates black people.

His dad wore the hood, and Trump has steadfastly made pronouncements and policy moves straight from Storm Front.

I think, though, that his failure to say anything about John Lewis says more about his stupidity than his racism, because a smart racist would have put something out and then kept working behind the scenes to sabotage efforts to address institutional racism.

See, Trump is a total racist, but he's just too stupid to do this.
