Today’s cartoon and blog post is coming to you from lovely downtown Fredericksburg, Virginia, America’s most historic city.
Speaking of historic, John Lewis is historic. The man is a Civil Rights icon. Donald Trump decided to honor the man three days before Martin Luther King Jr. day by tweeting (or course) that he’s “all talk and no action.” Nice.
Lewis gave an interview where he said Trump’s presidency is illegitimate. I disagree. If you believe Hillary Clinton eats babies and you vote against her your vote still counts. Ignorant votes are valid. If it’s proven that Trump coordinated with Putin for his election and committed treason, then I’ll say he’s illegitimate. Though it would be nice to see his birth certificate so we can make sure he wasn’t born in Loompa Land.
But for Trump to attack Lewis, and say his Congressional District is crime-ridden, is just stupid. Lewis marched in Selma, Alabama in 1965 during what’s referred as “Bloody Summer.” Lewis had his skull fractured by a racist cop during the event.
One thing about working in a coffee shop this morning is overhearing (eavesdropping) conversations. Today the hot topics are Trump and Saturday Night Live. Some people were talking about how Trump is using Twitter and stupid tweets to distract the populace.
Uh, no. He’s not a political mastermind pretending to be a dumbass. He’s an actual dumbass.
That, my friends, is where Trump is totally legitimate.
