How often do you think about Rob Schneider? I must admit, I had forgotten that he was a creature currently populating our fair planet until—hark!—his name began trending on Twitter. Now, generally when I see that a name in the Trends box, I assume that they are dead or newly wed. Schneider is neither: he merely saw fit to inform congressman and civil rights hero John Lewis how he might best emulate Martin Luther King Jr — who, by the way, Lewis knew personally.
Rep. Lewis, as you may have heard, has made public his plans to boycott Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration. Trump, in Lewis’s estimation, is not a “legitimate” president, and as such, he cannot tacitly condone the inauguration by attending.
