While speaking to WVOM, LePage, who has made racist comments in the past, said John Lewis needs to review his history.
"How about John Lewis last week, criticizing the president?" LePage said on Tuesday. “John Lewis ought to look at history. It was Abraham Lincoln that freed the slaves. It was Rutherford B. Hayes and Ulysses S. Grant that fought against Jim Crow laws.
“A simple 'thank you' would suffice,” he continued.
As LePage's favorite incoming president would say, SAD!
