Trump won, because he wouldn’t give an inch.

Now, he has fired his National Security advisor, and allowed his AG to recuse himself from an investigation that he should  be directing.  Far from being too offensive, Trump is being too defensive.  Democrats kept Eric Holder after he admitted lying about Fast and Furious and was censured by the House.  They never give in, never apologize.  That is why they are still running the show in DC, even after losing all elective control over it.

John Lewis is both a Civil Rights Icon and a Partisan Jerk.

Why do the two have to be mutually exclusive?  What Lewis did, and what he endured, in the struggle for civil rights, was brave.  But disrespecting the presidency and calling into question the legitimacy of Trump’s victory is not.

It doesn’t matter if you think that Trump should not have hit back.  That’s what he does. If  If Lewis wants to throw a punch at Trump, he’d better be ready for a counterpunch.
