So liberal black Congressman John Lewis – who author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza rightly describes as a “nasty, bitter old man” who appears to have been weaned on a pickle – said something incendiary and stupid last week.
Like so many other whiny Participation Trophy Liberals, Lewis declared that duly-elected Donald Trump was not a “legitimate president.”
Historically, most Republicans would have responded that the “honorable” Mr. Lewis was a civil rights “icon” and given him a pass. Most Republicans would have been scared to death to challenge such a black leader no matter how ridiculous or outrageous his statement.
But Trump ain’t most Republicans. And unlike most Republicans, when you take a swing at him he swings back. He doesn’t start these fights, but he doesn’t back down from them either. Which he demonstrated again on Saturday by tweeting…
“Congressman John Lewis should finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities of the U.S.”
Bingo! It’s about time somebody stood up to these race-hustling bullies and called them out.
But here’s the thing that really struck me about the whirlwind of righteous indignation that oozed from the left and remaining small band of hard-core “Never Trump” Republicans…
Apparently, because he’s a veteran of the civil rights movement in the 60s, Lewis is supposed to be immune from criticism. White people aren’t allowed to give him a dose of his own medicine because… well, because he’s black.
But isn’t that exactly the OPPOSITE of what Lewis and others fought for? Shouldn’t we treat him with the same scorn and ridicule we’d heap upon a white person for saying something so stupid? Isn’t that what equal rights is all about?
Thank you, PRESIDENT Trump, for treating Mr. Lewis with equality.

Las Vegas locals are mourning the death of Lois Margolet, founder of the wildly-popular Capriotti’s Sandwich Shop and inventor of the The Bobby – “turkey with cranberry sauce, stuffing and mayo on a sub roll.” She was 68.
As successful as Capriotti’s is now – with more than 100 locations in 18 states – it wasn’t always that way, as Ashley Morris, CEO of the company, explained to the Las Vegas Review-Journal…
“In the very beginning, there were times that she was forced to go out and get second jobs – side jobs – to make sure she had enough money to keep the business going.”
Indeed, success has to be earned in business. Sacrifices need to be made. ‘Tis not an easy path – or everybody would take it.
An important lesson for kids (especially millenials) and aspiring entrepreneurs. And something regulation-happy government bureaucrats and tax-happy elected officials should think about before taking actions that screw job-creators such as Ms. Margolet.
NEVADA NEWS & VIEWS
Democrats in Nevada – especially the usual race-baiting wing – now have their knickers in a knot over a statue of former Nevada U.S. Sen. Pat McCarran in Statuary Hall at the U.S. Capitol “because of his history of racism and anti-Semitism.” The ironic part of this story?
McCarran was a DEMOCRAT.

FAMOUS LAST WORDS
“We’re going to legalize the sale of inexpensive insurance.” – Sen. Rand Paul on plans to repeal and replace ObamaCare
“Having worked for more than 20 years investigating fraud and waste at the federal level, I never found one bureaucrat who was ever satisfied with the amount of money they seized from taxpayers. The always whined that they needed more money in their budget.” – Michael O. Kreps, Las Vegas Review-Journal
“I had no intention of performing at this inauguration, no matter who won! I try to stay out of politics. I’m an entertainer.” –Marie Osmond (if only more entertainers understood this!)
“One major GOP outside group has changed its polling formula as it surveys Republican voters in preparation for 2018. Where it used to ask primary voters if they identified as ‘tea party Republicans’ or ‘mainstream Republicans,’ the group has added a third option: ‘Trump Republicans.’ Early polls have shown the party cleaved in approximately equal thirds in key states.” – Morning Score, 1/13/17
