There is no low Donald Trump will shun. He cages children and steals from veterans. He rips nursing infants out of their mother’s arms and criticizes a mother and father whose son died in war. This time he reached into the heart of a recent widow and viciously stabbed her with his cruel words.
Representative Debbie Dingell (D-MI) responded to Trump’s attack on her husband, longtime and highly regarded Representative John Dingell (D-MI). During the president’s rally where he was impeached in real time, the president claimed that the deceased representative was “looking up” versus down. In other words, he was implying the beloved representative went to hell.
Debboe Dingell responded to him with this tweet, remarking that her husband had “earned all his accolades.” This was her first holiday season since he died:
‘Mr. President, let’s set politics aside. My husband earned all his accolades after a lifetime of service. I’m preparing for the first holiday season without the man I love. You brought me down in a way you can never imagine and your hurtful words just made my healing much harder.’
Trump at first refused to lower the flag as is traditional when a member of Congress passes. Finally, he agreed — reluctantly. This is what POTUS said at his rally Wednesday night, that he gave John Dingell “A-plus treatment:”
‘She (Mrs. Dingell) calls me up. “That’s the nicest thing that ever happened. Thank you so much. John would be so thrilled. He’s looking down. He’d be so thrilled.”‘
Then, Trump turned dark:
‘Maybe he’s looking up. I don’t know. … But let’s assume he’s looking down.’
His remarks fell flat.
Twitter world felt for the new widow. Check out the heartfelt wishes below:
