CNN’s Lemon on Trump Not Paying His Respects to John Lewis: I Don’t Think the Congressman Would Mind

‘John Lewis didn’t believe in paying lip service to things you don’t believe in’

RUSH EXCERPT:

LEMON: “It would be easy to say that the president should go pay tribute to the remarkable life of John Lewis. A legend. Except my sense is John Lewis didn’t really care all that much what the president thought of him. John Lewis didn’t believe in paying lip service to things you don’t believe in. To people whose values you don’t share or respect. In fact, he refused to attend the president’s inauguration.”
