After Trump Slams Rep. John Lewis, Book Sales Soar


Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.), who slammed President-elect Trump on Friday by saying he won’t be a “legitimate president,” had reason to celebrate when his recent memoir sold out on Amazon.

The frenzy of purchases of Lewis’ newest book, “Walking in the Wind: A Memoir of the Movement,” came only hours after Trump blasted him on Twitter, saying he was “all talk, talk, talk — no action or results.” 

A previous publication by Lewis, “March,” also rose to the top of Amazon’s best-sellers list on Saturday.

Trump’s tweets, which brought backlash from both Democrats and Republicans, sent sales of Lewis’ books skyrocketing.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lewis’ memoir sales jumped more than 800,000 percent; while “March,” a graphic-novel trilogy of his life which Lewis assisted in writing, jumped 76,000 percent.

In fact, five of the six books that garnered the most sales in the last 24 hours on Amazon were by written Lewis.
