Donald Trump Corrects John Lewis' Claim He's "Never" Boycotted An Inauguration

On Meet The Press over the weekend, Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) claimed this Friday will be the first time he has skipped an inauguration.

As it turns out, this isn't true: Lewis did not attend George W. Bush's inauguration in 2001 and instead spent the day in Atlanta.

(His staff now claims that they "forgot" about that.)

Anyhow, the president-elect took it upon himself to act as Lewis' fact-checker. Trump posted a series of tweets calling out Lewis for his inaccuracy.

In addition to Lewis, more than 40 of his colleagues will also be boycotting the inauguration.
