John Lewis Claims Trump's 'DNA' Makes Him Racist

Durbin on Trump'He Said These Hate Filled Things

"Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?"

Congresswoman Maxine Waters joined Joy Reid on MSNBC's All In With Chris Hayes tonight.

"I have called him what I know him to be for a long time", Waters said.

Lewis made his announcement Friday, citing reports that Trump had referred to some African countries as "s--holes" in a conversation with lawmakers about immigration. Trump later claimed he didn't use those specific words, but Sen. "Dick Durbin, leading advocate for "dreamers" and other immigrant groups". Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who was also in attendance, seemed to confirm in his own statement Friday. I've called him a racist.

"But I know this: history will not be kind to him, to these Republicans, and to those who are basically standing by him, embracing him. I've always believed America is an idea, not defined by its people but by its ideals". Waters said, "Oh, no". "He does not deserve my attention".

Lewis also said during the interview that he will not be attending President Trump's first State of the Union address later this month, making him the second Democratic congressman to boycott the annual address.

Blumenauer said he would be skipping the event before Trump's remarks became public, but said it would be a waste of time and that he was staying home. Waters answered, "Oh no, I didn't go to the inauguration". On Friday, she called for him to be removed from office over his comments.

"Donald Trump is an embarrassment and a national disgrace", she added. "Congress has a constitutional responsibility to impeach him without delay".

Trump is scheduled to deliver the annual address January 30.
