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.
