Love this: John Lewis's constituents post pictures of their houses on Twitter-

Georgia 5th district - WE DO NOT LIVE IN A SLUM - Link has lots of photos

Trump trolled by John Lewis’s constituents after insulting their district as ‘horrible’ and ‘crime ridden’

While others on Twitter ripped into Trump for attacking the civil rights hero, Lewis’s constituents in Georgia tweeted photos of the supposedly “horrible and falling apart community,” at the behest of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

“Are you a resident of John Lewis’ #fifthdistrict? Tweet us pictures of where you live,” the paper tweeted.

What followed were pictures of what Donald Trump would have his followers believe was a hellhole.

a lazy form of stupidity that allows you to assume that a black congressman represents nothing but slums.

I hope he is removed from office in short order.

What a horrible excuse for a human being.

Oakhurst Porchfest, a neighborhood festival started in 2015, featured more than 170 musical acts performing for free all over porches and in front yards throughout the Oakhurst area of Decatur this past October -- right in Georgia's nightmarish 5th Congressional district!

https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/oakhurstporchfest/

Just check out these photos of beautiful people, beautiful houses, joyous sharing of music. Thousands of people, roaming all over an area of a couple of square miles all day long, without one incident of crime or conflict. Sad!

I'm already looking forward to this year's event, just nine months away!

According to Donald Trump all black people live in horrible ghettos that are hellholes where people get shot walking to the store. So, since John Lewis is black Donald Trump thinks Lewis' district is a crime ridden hellhole that is falling to pieces.
