Trump on John Lewis: I Find a Lot of People impressive. I Find Many People Not impressive. He Didn't Come to my inauguration. I Think he Made a Big Mistake. Atlanta Voters.
This race now appears to be (partly) coming down to John McCain's home state and John Lewis's hometown.
I love the idea that Clayton County could put Biden over in GA. Thats John Lewis district. He would do one of his trademark happy dances in heaven. Symmetry.
John Lewis, we did it. Thank you. And thank you, Stacey Abrams. O my heart!
Get in good trouble, necessary trouble, and help redeem the soul of America." -JohnLewis Its a beautiful, beautiful, beautiful thing that John Lewis district- Clayton County in Georgia- hammered the final nail in Donald Trumps coffin. [?]nulb.
The batch of votes that put Biden over the top in Georgia were from the county of the late John Lewis.
Biden in the lead in GA by 917. Thank you John Lewis. Thank you Stacey Abrams.
The ghosts of John Lewis, John Dingell and John McCain may be up to some, er, good trouble in the Electoral College.
When the history of this era is written it will be Black voters in Kenosha, Milwaukee, Philly, Detroit and John Lewis' Atlanta plus Latino voters in Nevada & Arizona who evicted Donald Trump from 1600 Black Lives Matter Plaza & ushered in Joe Biden & a Black woman: Kamala Harris.
It will be because of major turnout in John Lewiss district that this state flipped.
Thank you John Lewis!
DwaeRemember this? So sweet that district put Biden over the top. dwae Donald Trump stated on January 14, 2017 in a tweet: Georgias 5th congressional district, represented by John Lewis, is "in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested).".
Biden LEADS IN GEORGIA. Somewhere John Lewis is smiling.
Clayton county being the ones to flip Georgia blue and secure Bidens win after Trump refused to acknowledge John Lewiss legacy is very on brand for 2020.
Something quite remarkable about John Lewiss home county giving Biden the lead in Georgia.
I really hope we talk about how Stacey Abrams organized Black voters in John Lewis's home state of Georgia *EVEN AFTER* she was passed over for the Democratic VP ticket. Black womxn will advocate for the greater good DESPITE the harms we face from "allies.".
A huge thank you to staceyabrams I cant even imagine how proud John Lewis would be.
So basically John Lewiss district and John McCains state could very likely cost Trump the election. Turns out being a trash human who disrespects American icons is not a winning strategy.
Imagine. John Lewis' county putting Georgia over the top. Good Trouble.
Clayton County, the home of Voters Right Icon, John Lewis, puts Joe Biden in the lead to turn Georgia Blue for the first time since 1992.
Three of the most influential people in the outcome of this years presidential election are no longer alive: John Lewis, John McCain, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
A few people who deserve a ton of credit today for making Joe Biden President: - Stacey Abrams - Cindy McCain - Bernie Sanders - The late John Lewis - Dr. Jill Biden - and of course JOE BIDEN! Can we get a round of applause please?
Dear John Lewis, thank you for this gift we are about to receive.
Trump insulted McCain, John Lewis, Stacey Abrams, and both states that have been historically red, flipped. Payback is a bitch, buddy.
John Lewis would not attend Trumps inauguration because he refused to give extremism legitimacy. He knew you dont unify with wrong & lies. Now Georgia, his home state and home district, could unseat Trump.
"Nothing can stop the power of a committed and determined people to make a difference in our society. Why? Because human beings are the most dynamic link to the divine on this planet." John Lewis.
Clayton County voters give Biden the lead in Georgia. Georgia puts Biden over 270 Ev - electing him and defeating Trump. Clayton County is home county of John Lewis. The moral arc of the universe is long but does, indeed, bend towards justice.
As reporting comes in from Clayton County, GA, the margin in Georgia is down to 463 votes. Clayton County was Rep John Lewis' district. This is poetic justice.
John Lewis in heaven dancing on an unhinged persons political grave rn. Good morning.
Small theme of this election is Trump appearing to pay the price for relentlessly insulting late political opponents who were beloved at home. Trump had been trashing John Lewis and Clayton County since January 2017. And then theres McCain.
The spirit of John Lewis watches over Georgia tonight.
I only wish that John Lewis was able to see this moment.
Tonight America stands on the shoulders of Georgia Giants staceyabrams and John Lewis. The great state of Georgia is blue!
On MSNBC, Sen. ChrisCoons says he thinks Clayton County, Georgia which was represented by the late Rep. John Lewis *could be the county that puts Biden over the top in that state when the vote comes in.
Clayton County, the home of the late John Lewis, just turned Georgia blue. Joe Biden is now winning Georgia.
John Lewis is smiling!
This election will be the story of two Johns. John McCain's wrath over Trump is going to turn Arizona blue. John Lewis's blessing over Georgia is going to turn it blue. I believe in miracles sometimes.
If Trump loses Georgia by a narrow margin after losing votes by refusing to attend John Lewis's funeral and being a complete dick about it I may actually cum.
We have to believe John Lewis is looking down at Georgia and saying now that is what I call good trouble.
Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Do not become bitter or hostile. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. We will find a way to make a way out of no way. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia, 1940-2020.
It wasnt absentee ballots in populous Fulton or DeKalb counties that pushed Joe Biden beyond President Donald Trump in Georgia, nor was it one of the newly minted Democratic northern suburbs.
On election day, Georgia honored former Georgia Rep. John Lewis by showing up to the polls and voting for JoeBiden. I know he's looking down from above with a smile. Rest in power!
Party figures also brought up Trumps 2017 attack on Lewis' crime-infested and horrible district, which stretches across parts of Clayton, DeKalb and Fulton. Claytons role in his possible defeat in Georgia, they said, was a measure of revenge.
The votes from John Lewis' district are the votes that put Joe Biden over the top in Georgia. That is some sweet justice.
John Lewis, you didnt get to see this one happen here with us, but I know youre smiling down on us here. You helped make this happen. I wish you could be here to get more of the flowers you deserve.
The ghosts of John Lewis & John McCain.
John Lewis's county put Biden ahead in Georgia.
John Lewis: Ordinary people with extraordinary vision can redeem the soul of America ... Voting & participating in the democratic process are key. The vote is the most powerful nonviolent change agent you have in a democratic society. You must use it ...
Trump on John Lewis: I find a lot of people impressive. I find many people not impressive. He didn't come to my inauguration. I think he made a big mistake. Atlanta Voters.
It's not election fraud. Or a witch hunt. Or fake news. Trump's own personal attacks are becoming his electoral undoing: John McCain (AZ), John Lewis (GA), and the USPS.
While yall are still sleeping Im going to push on the we went from picking cotton to picking presidents because if Im not mistaken it is from John Lewis and then Jesse Jackson and it wasnt framed as an uplift but instead the burden still remains on us.
Clayton County, the county in Georgia that kept counting and put Biden over the top and turned GA blue, is John Lewis' home county.
In my life I have done all I can to demonstrate that the way of peace, the way of love and nonviolence is the more excellent way. Now it is your turn to let freedom ring.
We must be close to a John Lewis Christmas ad?
Some of the votes that pushed Joe Biden ahead in Georgia this morning came from John Lewiss district.
Wonderful symbolism that the county (Clayton) that put JoeBiden in the lead in Georgia was represented for decades by John Lewis.
Sitting here imagining the giant smile on John Lewiss face this morning as Georgia appears to flip Cant forget Georgias daughter staceyabrams- she didnt agonize- she organized!
This morning I have a meeting for work at a civil rights non-profit in John Lewis district, right across from the MLK Center. I know its not over, but Georgia, this is a good god damn morning.
Its significant and beautiful that Clayton County, Georgia which was represented by the late Rep. John Lewis is the county that propelled Joe Biden into the lead in the 2020 race for president. This is truly an extraordinary historic event.
The late Rep. John Lewis was a true powerhouse of activism and a force for good in Congress. His legacy will live on with the election of nikemawilliams to fill his seat. She earned a resounding 85% of the vote! Congratulations Nikema!!
Disrespect John McCain lose Arizona Disrespect John Lewis lose Georgia.
John Lewis is smiling down on Georgia.
