The one salient point

How that went:

Interviewer: John Lewis is lying in state in the US Capitol, how do you think history will remember John Lewis?

Trump: I don’t know. I really don’t know. I don’t know John Lewis. He chose not to come to my inauguration. He chose, uh – I never met John Lewis, actually, I don’t believe.

Interviewer: Do you find him impressive?

Trump: [pause with mouth open and disdainful “tsk” sound] Uhhh…I can’t say one way or the other. I find a lot of people impressive. I find many people not impressive – but – [shrug] no – but I didn’t uh – [hands come up in accordion gesture; meanwhile interviewer is asking “Do you find his story impressive?”] – he didn’t come to my inauguration. He didn’t come to my State of the Union speeches. [accordion gesture gets wider] And that’s OK. [pause] That’s his right. [pause] And, again, [more accordion gestures] nobody has done more [voice is an indignant whine now] for Black Americans than I have. [interviewer saying “I understand, I understand that”] He should have come. [still indignant whine] I think he made a big mistake.

That’s it. That’s this disgusting criminal pinhead’s response to the life and significance of John Lewis – He diDn’t coMe to MY inauGurAshun. That’s all that can find room in his horrible shrunken spite-riddled brain. No, he didn’t find John Lewis impressive; John Lewis didn’t come to his inauguration; he, Trump, has done more for Black Americans than anyone, obviously including John Lewis. Who, by the way, didn’t come to his inauguration.

This pampered soft greedy pig of a man who was at Fordham getting bone spurs deferments when John Lewis was getting his head split on the Edmund Pettus bridge has the fucking gall to say he’s done more for John Lewis’s cause than John Lewis ever did. This evil greedy lying pig of a man who systematically refused to rent apartments to Black Americans has the fucking gall to say he’s done more for Black Americans than John Lewis has.

It makes me angry.
