he fell back to his well-worn talking points about passing criminal justice reform and creating "opportunity zones" in order to repeat his claim that he's done more for Black Americans than any other president outside of the "possible exception" of Abraham Lincoln.

who also skipped Trump's inauguration.

I remember this debate we had around MLK Day just before his inauguration where we wondered whether he knew who John Lewis was. I don't remember the details -- I think Lewis said something legitimate and Trump showed umbrage.

Anyway, once upon a time we actually thought Trump might know who John Lewis was. Suggesting we might have thought he knew shiat. Any shiat whatsoever.

NOBODY is calling Donnie a healer.. not Donnie, not even his fans.

"How do you think history will remember John Lewis?"

"He chose not to come to my inauguration."

I wish it was hard to believe that Trump's measure of the life of John Lewis begins and ends with the complaint that he didn't come to Trump's inauguration.

DIAF, Trump.

Seriously, who gets TP stuck to their heel? You've got to be some sort of oblivious asshole not to notice what you're stepping on when you're in the bathroom.

It's a metaphor for Trump's presidency.

Now, he probably won't show up at Trump's funeral either.

The funnier bit is that no one in his entourage thought to point it out to him, either out of fear or malice.

Trump can't heal anything.

If he had unlimited health potions, he'd keep them for himself.

It's all about whether or not he kissed the ring.

Neither did Frederick Douglass. Trump never forgave him for that.

"I find a lot of people impressive. I find many people not impressive. But no, he didn't come to my inauguration. He didn't come to my State of the Union speeches, and that's OK. That's his right. And, again, nobody has done more for Black Americans than I have. He should've come. I think he made a big mistake. I think he should've come."

There is a non-zero possibility that Lewis will rise from his grave to attend Trump's funeral.

I'm really hoping some reporter just says it out loud once, consequences be damned. "When was the last time someone called you a stupid piece of shiat? Because it needs to happen more often."

I'm looking forward to finding out about that.

Also this dickhead is surrounded by a huge number of aides, secret service, assorted sycophants, etc and NONE of them wanted to or did tell him about it?
 
2020-08-04 8:24:35 AM  
The worst part is that the Lewis comment is the most sane, predictable, and expected part of the interview.
 
2020-08-04 8:25:01 AM  
Perhaps Mr Lewis did not feel comfortable crossing the border wall...

T would just fire them while yelling "FAKE SHOES" so what's the point?

He was elected to steal, not to heal.
 
2020-08-04 8:27:25 AM  
Maybe ask yourself why he and tens of thousands of other Americans didn't show up.

Hint: It's not them, it's you.
 
2020-08-04 8:27:32 AM  
They are going to have to install a good drainage system around Trumps grave for all the piss.
 
2020-08-04 8:27:47 AM  
He doesn't know who John Lewis was.

More evidence that Trump is more clueless than an Amy Heckerling movie.
 
2020-08-04 8:29:08 AM  
Holy shiat this Axios interview just keeps on giving.

Can't bring myself to watch it though - I have a low tolerance for cringe.

If trump died today it would still not be soon enough.
 
2020-08-04 8:31:28 AM  
How dense do you have to be to not even *try* to come up with a decent answer? It's only a few months until the election, at least pretend to care.

"I believe he was a respectable man that fought for what he believed in, and for that I'm honored to have worked with him.". There.  Generic boiler plate answer, Trump can use it free.  We already know that he's a racist twit, this way he can satisfy his equally racist base by not directly agreeing with Lewis but also not shiatting on the guy's grave.

Quick question, if you have done "more for black people" than anyone else.....how did you never manage to cross paths with Lewis?

If only he had a service team of specially trained experts whose only job were to surround and watch him, 24/7, and who knew how to be discreet, secretive even. That secret service team would certainly notice that. Assuming they also respected the guy, they would probably discreetly address the problem.
