Democrat Senator: Lewis Comments Uncalled For

“I just think that was uncalled for,” Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) said Sunday morning on CBS’s Face the Nation of Representative John Lewis’s (D-GA) recent comments calling Trump’s presidency not “legitimate.”

“I just wish that rhetoric would tone down from both back and forth,” Manchin continued.

Lewis told NBC’s Meet the Press that he would not be attending the inauguration and that he does not view Trump as a “legitimate president.”

“The bottom line is if we’re concerned about the Russians and we know the Russians want to be involved, Putin wants to be involved in altering our process, then he will succeed if he sees this bickering going back and forth,” Manchin added.”
