Bakari Sellers: John Lewis Tributes from McConnell and Kemp ‘Do Not Mean a Thing’

‘Those words you’re saying about John Lewis, they ring hollow and they are empty’


SELLERS: “And the last thing that I'll say that I think April would agree with, I'm pretty sure she would, that's probably even more important today. For those individuals like the Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, for Mitch McConnell, those words that you're saying about John Lewis, they ring hollow and they are empty. You cannot praise John Lewis in one hand and then be the leading cause of voter suppression and gutting the Voting Rights Act on the other hand. You know, John Lewis would always say that we got to get in good trouble.”
