John Dingell Might Be In Hell Trump

Trump Jokes That Beloved Congressman Who Died This Year Might Be In Hell—And His Widow Claps Back

Not that anyone is actually surprised, but President Trump said something terribly offensive and unpresidential, again, when he made a joke about the late Democratic Rep. John Dingell (a World War II veteran who also was the longest-serving member of Congress in U.S. history), who passed in February 2019.

During a rally in Michigan yesterday, the president made a quip, suggesting Dingell was “looking up” from hell.

Trump’s issue was that Debbie Dingell, who is in the House, voted for Trump’s impeachment—despite the fact that Trump gave Dingell an “A-plus” memorial service, as if people owe him something for doing what he should have done: Given the longest-serving member of Congress a proper burial. Then he goes on to explain that Dingell called Trump after the service to thank him, saying her husband was “looking down” (from heaven). Trump then stupidly quipped, “Maybe he’s looking up, I don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe.”

But fellow politicians want Trump to apologize (no chance), and rightfully so.

Even Senator Lindsey Graham, a Trump supporter, along with other House Republicans, thinks the President should apologize: “If he said that I think he should apologize,” Graham told reporters. “John Dingell is a fine, fine man.’

John Dingell’s widow chimed in on Twitter to shame the president for his thoughtless words.

Imagine being married to a man for years, losing him, and having the President of the United States attack his character publicly and without apology?

And the Internet is disgusted, too.

Trump has never held his tongue before, but that doesn’t mean his actions don’t have consequences. Consider the impeachment: He may get away with his horrible behavior, but history will mark him as one of the worst, most un-presidential presidents of all time.
