John lewis is a man much taller than President Trump … that’s what the American representative said. Hank johnson.
We received the powerful congressman on Capitol Hill on Monday after a ceremony for the late civil rights icon, and our cameraman asked if John would even want the Prez to pay their respects at the Capitol Rotunda, where Lewis is lying in the State.
Johnson tells us that John would welcome Trump if he chose to come and pay his respects – POTUS said, “I’m not going.” Johnson says Lewis would still pray for 45 years.
Congressman Lewis passed away earlier this month at 80 years old after battling pancreatic cancer, which has never slowed him down.
Vice president Mike pence and second lady Karen pence are about to visit Lewis’ casket in the rotunda instead of Trump.
John is still remembered by people all over the country … and American officials Stacey Plaskett and Dwight Evans remind people to remember Lewis’s famous words and get in good trouble. And finally, Stacy noted that John just couldn’t stand still when he heard the song “Happy!”
Our sincere thanks to
