<p>On the 22 June 2016 edition of <em>MSNBC Live</em>, Luke Russert fawned over Rep. John Lewis, as he and his Democratic colleagues staged a pro-gun control sit-in inside the well of the chamber of the House of Representatives. Russert first asked Lewis, &quot;You are a civil rights icon. Your stories are remarkable &mdash; beaten within one inch of your life, it has been said. How important is this moment for you?&quot; He also played up Lewis&#39;s &quot;distinguished congressional career.&quot; Russert later wondered, &quot;Put this in history for me....Where does this stack up for you, in terms of what you&#39;ve been able to accomplish in this life?&quot;</p>
