President Trump’s Avoiding to Speak on John Lewis’s Passing Displays Issues with Honoring True Icons

President Trump’s way of paying attention to the unfortunate death of civil rights veteran John Lewis and praising a TV personality Regis Philbin has been seen as a biased thought process.

While flooding Twitter with hundreds of other tweets, the President almost forgot to write a few words on the sudden demise of John Lewis. 

John Lewis, a longtime Democratic congressman from Georgia and one of the most prominent civil rights icons, died at 80 last week. And President Trump waved off this publicly for more than 12 hours. 

Trump’s mute on the demise of a historical figure has been considered an issue with honoring iconic personalities who truly deserve to be remembered for decades with great respect.

On the other hand, President’s overwhelming words on the death of a TV personality and Trump’s friend, Regis Philbin, were considered extremely biased. Remembering his late friend Regis Philbin, Trump tweeted- “One of the greats in the history of television, Regis Philbin has passed on to even greater airwaves, at 88,” Source: Twitter. 

The tweet further read- “He was a fantastic person and my friend. Holds the record for ‘most live television,’ and he did it well. Regis, we love you … And to Joy, his wonderful wife, who he loved so much, my warmest condolences!!!” Source: Twitter. 

Later, the President addressed the demise of John Lewis by writing a 23 words long tweet on the afternoon of July 18. 

When some local reports asked the President if he will plan for a trip to Pennsylvania Avenue to pay tribute to Lewis, Trump said- “No, I won’t be going, no,” Source: Politico.
