When RINO Senator and and anti-Trumper John McCain succumbed to cancer over the weekend democrats seized the opportunity to attack the President. See, democrats never liked McCain and many of them actually despised the man. McCain however was a vocal opponent of Donald Trump so democrats are pretending they loved the Arizona Senator as a way of sticking two middle fingers up at the President. No one had a more dramatic turnaround than Rep. John Lewis, who once thought McCain was a super-racist, but is now praising his peacemaking skills just to get another shot in on Trump.
The way this current lefty scam is working is that democrats are praising John McCain for a bunch of things they don’t believe so they can contrast that with Trump, who they think is worse than they used to think McCain was. They say things like “McCain was a great leader, a man of honor, and beacon of civility” because these are qualities they say Trump lacks.
With that in mind, here’s Lewis calling Trump a racist by praising McCain’s ability to bridge the racial divide:
Senator John McCain was a warrior for peace. He will be deeply missed by people all around the world.

Actually, despite his rampant RINOism, McCain was was a war hawk who believed in a strong military as well as military intervention at all possible times. That doesn’t really have anything to do with John Lewis’ racial bullshit, but it is relevant to the democrat’s overall level of bovine excrement.
In any case, here’s what Lewis thought of McCain back in 2008 when he was running for president against Barack Obama according to Politico:
Civil rights icon John Lewis compared Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to George Wallace in a posting to Politico’s forum “The Arena,” accusing McCain of fostering “an atmosphere of hate” and “hostility” like the one that led to white supremacists’ 1963 bombing of a church in Birmingham, Ala.
Lewis, a Democratic congressman from Georgia who has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), pointed to “the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign,” and said the senator and his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, “are sowing the seeds of hatred and division.”
And here is the entire John Lewis post:
As one who was a victim of violence and hate during the height of the Civil Rights Movement, I am deeply disturbed by the negative tone of the McCain-Palin campaign. What I am seeing reminds me too much of another destructive period in American history. Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are sowing the seeds of hatred and division, and there is no need for this hostility in our political discourse.
During another period, in the not too distant past, there was a governor of the state of Alabama named George Wallace who also became a presidential candidate.
George Wallace never threw a bomb. He never fired a gun, but he created the climate and the conditions that encouraged vicious attacks against innocent Americans who were simply trying to exercise their constitutional rights. Because of this atmosphere of hate, four little girls were killed on Sunday morning when a church was bombed in Birmingham, Alabama.
As public figures with the power to influence and persuade, Sen. McCain and Gov. Palin are playing with fire, and if they are not careful, that fire will consume us all. They are playing a very dangerous game that disregards the value of the political process and cheapens our entire democracy. We can do better. The American people deserve better.
Wasn’t George Wallace a democrat?
John Lewis didn’t just call McCain a racist, but a white supremacist who was so dangerous he would get black people killed. Like I said, that’s a long way from the “warrior for peace” that Lewis claims McCain was before his death. Take that Trump!
For the record, I could not find a picture of John Lewis and John McCain together. Weird, huh? It’s almost like the two men didn’t like each other very much.
