As Lewis Shuns Trump, MLK's Son Meets With President-Elect
As Congressman John Lewis – a prominent civil rights era figure – continues to shun the president-elect (for his illegitimacy), it appears none other than Martin Luther King Jr.’s son is willing to give him a chance. Trump’s incoming press secretary, Sean Spicer, announced via Twitter that the two will meet and discuss the civil rights leader’s legacy.
John Lewis remains indignant to facts and the US constitution…
But Martin Luther King Jr.’s son appears willing to cross the chasm of propaganda and discuss his father’s civil rights’ legacy…

As ABC reports, senior transition sources initially said Trump would visit the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., today. But ABC later learned that the the visit was removed from his calendar due to scheduling issues and was not fully planned out. Spicer said today that the president-elect was never planning to go to the museum today.
He was never going to Washington,” Spicer asserted on Fox News. “I think what he was trying to do was find an appropriate way to celebrate and observe Martin Luther King’s birthday. He is going to meet with a group of individuals today, including Martin Luther King III to talk about that legacy and celebrate the birthday of Dr. King.”
