Hillary Clinton is the queen of shade, but even Elijah Cummings himself would have gotten a kick out of this one. Friday morning, the Clintons, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the Obamas, and more are in attendance of political icon Elijah Cummings’ funeral, which is more of a celebration of his life really.
Part of his life includes fighting to corrupt powers behind the Trump Administration.
Hillary Clinton just compared Donald and Melania Trump to King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. #ouch

Hillary said this:
“Like the prophet, our Elijah could call down fire from heaven—but he also prayed and worked for healing. Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.”
HUGE applause when Hillary Clinton made this theological zinger at Elijah Cummings' funeral: "It is no coincidence that Elijah shared a name with an Old Testament prophet … Like that Old Testament prophet he stood against the corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel."

“He had little tolerance for those who put party ahead of country or partisanship above truth. But he could find common ground with anyone willing to seek it with him. And he liked to remind all of us that you can’t get so caught up in who you are fighting that you forget what you are fighting for.”

“Toward the end of his life, he said, ‘I am begging the American people to pay attention to what is going on, because if you want to have a democracy intact for your children and your children’s children, and generations yet unborn, we have got to guard this moment. This is our watch.’”
“‘When we’re dancing with the angels, the question will be asked. in 2019 what did we do to make sure we kept our democracy intact?’”
