Watch: John Lewis boycotts Mississippi Civil Rights Museum event because of Trump

Glenn Beck

What happened?

Over the weekend, President Donald Trump visited Jackson, Mississippi to help commemorate the state’s bicentennial and the launch of the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum. Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), a renowned civil rights leader, had been planning to be at the museum’s opening, but he said he would no longer be attending or speaking because of Trump’s presence.

Glenn’s take:

At least Trump tried. He was in a lose-lose situation with a choice between going to the museum and being protested or declining the invitation and looking bad. On the other hand, Lewis decided to simply boycott the event along with Jackson Mayor Chokwe Antar Lumumba.

“Now how does this help heal anything?” Glenn asked.
