Whatever your views on the inaugural, it's worth following the example of a leader who embraced and forgave a man who clubbed him. https://t.co/ICmkvlp3yn

What Trump has also done is to create irresistible temptation to House Ds to leak the information that so upset John Lewis. Not smart

Be hopeful. Be optimistic. Don't get lost in a sea of despair. Love is a better way. #goodtrouble
