    Alec Baldwin trolls Donald Trump over Russia's election hacks

    08/01/2017



    On Friday, January 6, US intelligence agencies said in a declassified report that Putin himself personally "ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the USA presidential election" with a "clear preference for President-elect Trump", according to The New York Times.

    Actor Alec Baldwin, an outspoken Donald Trump detractor, took a jab at the President-elect on social media this week, wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat - in Russian.

    Mr Trump has unnerved the U.S. political and intelligence establishment with his friendly overtures to Russian President Vladmir Putin.

    The actor turned satirist has been consistently mocking Mr Trump on Saturday Night Live, entertaining Americans anxious about their political future.

    Shortly after Baldwin's joke, Trump released even more contentious tweets about Russian Federation.

    "Having a good relationship with Russian Federation is a good thing, not a bad thing", Trump wrote in a series of tweets.

    Alabama troopers beat John Lewis on March 7, 1965


    Freedom Riders Genevieve Hughes and John Lewis, Rock Hill, S.C.

    Violence did occur in Rock Hill, SC at the Greyhound Bus terminal on May 10th when black rider John Lewis and white rider Albert Bigelow attempted to enter a white-only waiting area. Several white men attacked the pair. In the skirmish, another Freedom Rider, Genevieve Hughes, also sustained injuries.

    The attack was broken up by local police. But more violence lay ahead.

    The Freedom Riders left Rock Hill and continued through South Carolina, with stops at Winnsboro, Columbia, and Sumter. They then crossed into Georgia, with stops at Augusta, Athens and Atlanta. Arriving in Atlanta on May 13th, the Freedom Riders had dinner with Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. They were hopeful that King would join them on the buses — perhaps becoming a Freedom Rider himself. Instead, King questioned the wisdom of proceeding into Alabama, where the probability of violent resistance was high. Sources told him at the time that the Ku Klux Klan has “quite a welcome” planned for them in Alabama. King urged the Riders to reconsider traveling through the Deep South. In fact, King flatly stated that night that the Riders would never make it to New Orleans. Still, the Freedom Riders left Atlanta on Mothers’ Day, May 14th, bound for Alabama.

    Just in time for Martin Luther King Day, Rep. John Lewis' books sales soar after harsh words from Donald Trump
    Los Angeles Times - ‎35 minutes ago‎

    Rep. John Lewis was inspired by and worked with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. When Lewis, head of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, helped lead a group of civil rights marchers across the Edmund Pettis Bridge in Selma, Ala., on March 7, 1965 — the day that became known as Bloody Sunday — Lewis was beaten so badly that his skull was fractured.

    He recovered, continued his work for civil rights and was elected U.S. representative of Georgia's 5th Congressional District in 1986, a position he still holds. In November, his graphic novel “March: Book Three,” the third volume in a series based on his experiences as a young man, won the National Book Award for young people’s literature.

    Lewis attracted the Twitter wrath of President-elect Donald Trump on Friday, when the congressman criticized Trump on "Meet the Press," saying, "I don’t see the president-elect as a legitimate president. ... I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected."

    Trump hit back the next day with a series of three posts on his Twitter feed, writing, "Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results. All talk, talk, talk - no action or results. Sad!"

    Donald Trump vs. John Lewis: One is a legend. The other is a lightweight.

    There’s apparently no depth too low for Donald Trump to sink in his unpresidented attacks on anyone who challenges him. And Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) certainly did that, citing Russian interference in the election and questioning the legitimacy of Trump’s presidency.

    Even so, the president-elect’s Twitter tirade against Lewis at the beginning of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend is still mind-boggling and a national embarrassment.

    Trump called Lewis, who risked his life to defy segregation, who has been arrested 40 times for his unrelenting activism, who helped get voting rights for millions of Americans, who kept fighting even after his skull was fractured, “All talk, talk, talk — no action.”

    So let’s compare Trump’s actions to Lewis’s actions.

    We can start in 1960, when Trump was 14 and Lewis was 20. They both clearly showed their leadership potential early.

    At New York Military Academy in Cornwall, N.Y., Donald Trump won a “neatness and order medal.”

    That same year, John Lewis became one of the original 13 Freedom Riders, defying laws that prohibited blacks and whites from sitting next to each other on public transportation.

    Three years later in 1963, man-of-action Trump led his private school’s white-gloved drill team in the Columbus Day parade in New York. But he was also removed from that drill team command, classmates said, because he hazed younger students.

    That same year, Lewis helped organize the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom and spoke alongside the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

    In 1965, Trump got his second Vietnam draft deferment as a Fordham University student.

    In 1965, on a day that became known as Bloody Sunday, Lewis helped lead 600 marchers across the Edmund Pettus Bridge in Selma, Ala. When the marchers stopped to pray, they were tear-gassed and beaten by troopers. Lewis’s skull was fractured.

    In 1973, Trump’s actions got him sued by the Department of Justice. He was managing his dad’s properties and wouldn’t rent apartments to African Americans. The Trumps eventually settled the lawsuit without any admission of wrongdoing.

    That same year, John Lewis was running the Voter Education Project, which pushed to register minority voters across the country.

    Trump owned the ’80s, right? His actions that decade?

    In 1981, Trump bought a 14-story building facing New York City’s Central Park and began a campaign to drive out the rent-stabilized tenants so he could begin gutting and renovating the building. According to lawsuits, Trump cut heat and water to the remaining tenants.

    In 1981, John Lewis was elected to the Atlanta City Council.

    In 1987, Trump’s book, “The Art of the Deal,” became a bestseller. Action? He didn’t even write it; talk about talk talk talk. And his ghostwriter, Tony Schwartz, now regrets the picture he painted of Trump in that book.

    In 1987, Lewis was elected to Congress.

    No. "Horror Clown" was a headline about Trump in a German paper.
