Dems Defend Rep. Lewis as Hero After Trump Slams Civil Rights Icon as No Action

"Several Democrats rallied behind Rep. John Lewis on Saturday as an "American hero" and revered civil rights champion after Donald Trump slammed him as "all talk, talk, talk" ahead of the national holiday honoring Martin Luther King Jr.

Republicans stayed mostly silent amid the back and forth the latest to highlight Trump's willingness to take on anyone, from war heroes to celebrities, whom he believes slighted him. But challenging Lewis, a top leader of the 1963 March on Washington, could end up pushing more Democrats to skip Friday's presidential inauguration in protest."
