After calling President-elect Donald Trump an "illegitimate president," Rep. John Lewis was publicly criticized on Twitter, with Trump saying Lewis was "all talk."

But it's not all bad news for Lewis. Sales of his graphic novel "March" and his autobiography skyrocketed after the Trump incident, Gizmodo reports.

"March," a three-part memoir, saw its sales increase 106,7000 percent. The collected memoir hit the top of Amazon's book charts before selling out, and the individual parts soared.
