…this isn’t the first time Lewis has boycotted a presidential inauguration. According to a Washington Post article written on January 21, 2001, Lewis and other members of the Black Caucus boycotted George W. Bush’s inauguration because they didn’t “believe Bush is the true elected president.” Lewis spent the day in his Atlanta district.So, this is pretty much a temper tantrum, which is what we already knew. In all, sixty-five Democrats plan to skip the inauguration. Remember when 65 Republicans did this in 2009 and 2013? Yeah, I don’t either.
