Add Michelle Obama to the list of Democrats taking the side of Rep. John Lewis against President-elect Donald Trump.
In a tweet on Monday the first lady praised Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Rep. Lewis. It was a thinly veiled shot at Trump.
Thinking of Dr. King and great leaders like @repjohnlewis who carry on his legacy. May their example be our call to action. -mo

During an interview with “Meet The Press” Lewis said he didn’t believe Trump was a legitimate president-elect because of Russian interference in the election.
Trump hit him back with two tweets in which he said Lewis ought to focus more on his crime-ridden district.
Since those tweets a number of Democrats have publicly supported Lewis and vowed, like the Georgia representative did, to not attend Trump’s inauguration.
