In an interview with Stuart Varney of Fox News, Conservative Black Chick Crystal Wright responded to the controversy over John Lewis calling President-elect Donald Trump “illegitimate.”
“John Lewis’ comments about President-elect Donald Trump are completely disrespectful. And apparently John Lewis only thinks a legitimate presidency would be one that Hillary Clinton was running. And what I want to know is what has John Lewis done since he marched on Selma? Really. He’s riding on the coattails of something that happened over 50 years ago. And it’s just, you know, to me his position in Congress is illegitimate.”
Varney then asked what Wright thought of Trump’s response to Lewis….
“I think Trump had the appropriate response to John Lewis who showed utter disrespect to the President-elect…. If John Lewis was not black, nobody would care what he is saying. If he wasn’t a black Democrat, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. John Lewis has done more for himself over the past 50 plus years than he’s done for black people.”
