In a shock to no-one, Bernie Sanders supporters melt down and attack John Lewis after he endorsed Joe Biden for president: “He has a low IQ,” one user tweeted.
Lewis, who was beaten on the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma on Bloody Sunday, said Biden was a “man of courage” and “will be a great president.” Never mind the fact that both men have a long history of friendship and working together on civil rights, while Bernie Sanders was M.I.A.
Biden put out a great ad of Lewis endorsing him and praised his friend for his support. He tweeted: “Congressman John Lewis is a moral giant who has spent his entire life pushing our nation to live up to our highest ideals. I’m honored to call him a friend — and grateful to have him by my side in this battle for the soul of our nation.”
Bernie Sanders supporters melt down and attack John Lewis after he endorsed Joe Biden for president:
Let's not forget that John Lewis supports the prison industrial complex that jails and murders so many black men.

Which proves once and for all that John Lewis is either extremely low IQ and/or in on the take 💯

a serious campaign anymore? Anyone that endorses Biden at this point is a prime example of someone I no longer deem fit for office. I AM DONE with the DNC in 2020 lmfao, hey #berniesanders actually rallied and got arrested. Ask Mandela if #Biden did.https://t.co/j4icdGFnWl

Rep. John Lewis, “civil rights icon”, endorses man who lied about his participation in the civil rights movement and was the father of mass incarceration. 🙄
This is egregious. We must vote better. Vote them all out and start over. https://t.co/48juaOrxQP

Citizen John Lewis is a moral midget even smaller than you @JoeBiden! He sold his soul to his white capitalist masters in order to retain his seat in Congress. He has never represented the interests of workers of the USA or anywhere else. If he had YOU would not be his friend!
