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."
