“The vote is precious, it is almost sacred. It is the most powerful nonviolent instrument or tool that we have in a democratic society and we must use it.” – Rep. John Lewis

Civil Rights national treasure and living legend, John Lewis, is getting the last word without even saying another word. After questioning the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s presidency, Trump himself fired back via twitter – implying that Lewis should focus more on “fixing and helping his district”.
This resulted in overwhelming support for Lewis, who has dedicated his entire life to the civil rights movement and authored two books – the novel “March” and memoir “Walking With the Wind”. Both experienced skyrocketed sales over MLK weekend following the feud, selling out on the Amazon platform.
Welp. I guess the people have spoken. When in doubt, check Lewis’ resume.
