Representative John Lewis does not consider Trump to be a legitimate president.. and boycotted Trump's inauguration. 
Lewis just congratulated Hillary for her 70th birthday, and referred to her as being the true President. 

Here's an idea.. any congressman who doesn't recognize the elected president as being legitimate should automatically charge the president as being illegitimate - and impeached.  They should be given a certain amount of time after filing their grievance to either drop it, or achieve the impeachment trial.  If they don't drop their grievance after failing to get an impeachment trial, then that official should lose their seat in Congress.  If there is an impeachment trial and the trial fails to remove the president from office, that official should again either drop their grievance or be removed from office. 

Isn't that fair?

It would solve the problem.

In the end, aren't you glad you live in a country where you can stand up and say bullshit things? I do think there should be limitations but is this one of them?

Freedom of speech is for citizens.. not for elected officials. 
For instance, citizen Jones is free to express his opinions about citizen Smith.. UNLESS citizen Jones is employed by citizen Smith.

That's a fair point. I read someone make a similar point about Pence walking out of an NFL game. The idea is that while he holds the office he acting in that capacity. I guess this should hold true for POTUS, too?

This is part of the argument I had with RoyalCrown89, which in turn got me labeled a racist. 

You are NEVER allowed to be critical of John Lewis because of his civil rights work 50 years ago.    That means that we have to completely ignore his 35 years as a Congressman.
