The rancid, orange bag of pus known as our President-Elect spurted out more characters from his Twitter account early Saturday.
John Lewis—Democrat from Georgia and civil rights hero—questioned the Orange-Bag-Elect’s legitimacy during an interview with NBC News on Friday. This was after intelligence reports pointed out that Russia interfered with the presidential election.
As I drift further to the left-left, I’m skeptical of this ‘intelligence,’ and the practical implications of it. But that’s a topic for another post.
But I agree with Lewis’s general sentiment that Trump is an illegitimate president—not because of Russian interference but because he lost the popular vote. That and he’s a useless orange sack of fecal matter.
Of course, when faced with a swirling whirlwind of controversy, Trump does what he does best—distract with Tweets. This time he attacked Lewis for not spending more time fixing his ‘falling apart’ district (Lewis represents the Fifth Congressional District of Atlanta—which is hardly falling apart).

Trump also said that Lewis was “All talk, talk, talk – no action or results.” The backlash was swift, with many posting photos of Lewis marching with Martin Luther King.

Lewis was beaten by police as he crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama in 1965. And while Lewis was risking his life to make America a better place, Little Lord Fauntleroy Trump was dodging the draft and gagging on his silver spoon.
Little Lord Draft-Dodger
Yes, at 6 foot 2 inches, and with an athletic build, Trump (or 1960’s Trump) had no issue playing football, tennis, or squash. After his 18th birthday in June 1964 he registered with the Selective Service System. The next month, Trump received the first of four education deferments as he worked through undergrad.
But by 1968, his schooling was behind him, and he couldn’t use that excuse anymore. There was little to prevent Trump from being drafted. He received a diagnosis for bone spurs in his heels. This resulted in a 1-Y medical deferment.
Later Trump said, “I was never a fan of the Vietnam War, but I was never at the protest level, either, because I had other things to do.”
Those other things must have included avoiding getting STDs, which he later described to Howard Stern as his own personal Vietnam.
Trump’s self-definition as neither a fan nor a protestor of the Vietnam War is telling. It reveals that he has no guiding philosophy other than opportunism and self-preservation. He neither cared about defending his country or voicing opposition towards an unjust war.
Meanwhile John Lewis was standing for justice, and putting everything on the line to fight for what he believed in.
That a man who has never stood for anything—who is nothing put a putrid cyst on the behind of a sputtering empire—has the nerve to attack a man like John Lewis is one of the absurdities of this bizarre era.
