5. When John Lewis speaks, people listen

He's a much respected icon of the civil rights movement and at a televised event he endorsed Hillary Clinton; but not before making a very deliberate and deceptive slanderous insinuation that Bernie Sanders wasn't heavily involved in the civil rights movement. Hell, maybe he wasn't even involved at all! "I didn't see him", says John Lewis, which means zero but says a whole lot.

It was a very low thing to do and I was very, very disappointed to see him do it.
