Fox Host Jesse Waters confronted Rep John Lewis on his remarks that Trump is an illegitimate president. Lewis said he was in hurry and kept walking. Waters asked a litany of questions on the remark and Lewis refused to answer any of them.
Waters asked Lewis:
“You said that Trump is an illegitimate president. Do you regret that?”
“That’s a pretty divisive thing to say, wouldn’t you agree?”
“Congressman? Don’t you think you owe a little respect to the office?”
Lewis said during an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” earlier this month that he doesn’t think Trump was elected legitimately.
“I believe in forgiveness. I believe in trying to work with people. It’s going to be hard. It’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” Lewis said.
“I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected and they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” Lewis added.
