The governor of Maine is a known racist and crazy person and this time he’s going after John Lewis. Apparently Governor Paul LePage thinks Lewis should thank Republicans for ending slavery. LePage decided to throw his opinion in and is taking Trump’s side in his feud against Lewis.
In an interview with a radio station in Maine, LePage said, “You know, I will just say this: John Lewis ought to look at history. It was Abraham Lincoln that freed the slaves. It was Rutherford B. Hayes and Ulysses S. Grant that fought against Jim Crow laws. A simple thank you would suffice.”
This comes after Lewis, a civil rights icon, said he does not see Trump as a legitimate President.
