Lewis a Hierarchy–Buster, and Trump a Hierarchy Builder. A Comparison of Their Lives

Donald Trump as a clueless hierarchy-builder didn't start any time recently.

John Lewis from the beginning was a hierarchy-buster, suffering even a broken skull in the process.

"About the time Trump was more focused on female conquest and winning squash matches than his studies during his years at Fordham University, John Lewis is on the ground, his hands covering his head as he’d been trained, while an Alabama state trooper beats him with a baton. Lewis, who would be arrested more than 40 times for his civil rights work, came away from that encounter with a fractured skull."

More timeline comparisons, in an article published by The Hill today.
