When Donald Trump ripped Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) early Saturday morning for calling him an illegitimate president, it didn’t take long for Lewis’s Democratic colleagues to fire back at the president-elect.
And their tweets were brutal.
Not many Republicans have weighed in on the issue, but the left side of the political aisle has been responding all day Saturday.
Even Republican Sen. Ben Sasse of Nebraska defended Lewis.
And perhaps this is one reason why Republicans, particularly in Lewis’s home state, have stayed out of the fight.
