(definition “act right”: to put someone in check.)

What you ain’t gon’, won’t and can’t do is insult a living legend. President-elect Donald Trump played out of position when he insulted Georgia Congressman John Lewis and his sterling reputation.

Lewis shared that he would not be attending the inauguration for the 45th POTUS on Friday, January 20, 2017, the first time in his career he’s ever missed, and Trump took offense.

Lewis is a longtime and popular member of Congress. He said he wouldn’t attend Trump’s inauguration, and called the president-elect “illegitimate.”

“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,” Trump tweeted.

It’s hard to determine if this nation’s next commander-in-chief is sensitive or senseless. Following closed-door meetings with him, Steve Harvey, Don King, Ray Lewis and Jim Brown are impressed with Trump. And use their respective platforms to encourage us to do the same.

What Trump fails to realize is you have to choose your battles and battling a Civil Rights legend “ain’t what you want.” You can’t win against a man who has been arrested 45 times fighting injustice and you are a man who cashed in on privilege to avoid the Vietnam draft.

This is a fight that Lewis supporters didn’t take lying down. Across social media, Trump was dragged for putting his dukes up against Lewis and never against top Klansman David Duke.

Here’s how Twitter responded to Trump’s insulting and inflammatory remarks:

    I’m just going to say this. Had any congressman threatened to boycott Obama’s inauguration, of course the race card wud get pulled out. Democrats talk abt bringing country together, but seem only interested in going against the will of the people. Obama care was a prime example. It had to b Obama’s way or the highway. There was no listening to wut the other side had to say that cud have made it better. Memo to John Lewis. Put on ur big boy pants. Dems lost election.

      First, the will of only a small majority of voters, clearly NOT the people in general. The entire republican congress essentially boycotted mr. Obama during his 8 years. Try not to feed into all the divisiveness. A lot of us out here see the state of your country and it concerns us!

    Who cares about this old nigger? The snivel rights movement was a disaster. Blacks are worse off than ever and they are dragging decent white America down with them. Time to ship the monkeys back to apefrica after we get rid of the beaners.

    If I ever met this old mud duck and he disrespected President Trump I’d slap his big lips off and put my foot in his fat lazy black ass. That goes for the rest of you porch monkeys too.
