    Trump jokes about congressman being in hell

    Let's start with the words from Debbie Dingell after Trump joked that her late husband was in hell: ďMr President, letís set politics aside. My husband earned all his accolades after a lifetime of service. Iím 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.Ē

    Here is the background info:

    Trump told the Battle Creek rally that Debbie Dingell had thanked him profusely for providing ďA-plus treatmentĒ after her husbandís death in February, including ordering flags flown at half-staff.

    He quoted her as saying, ďThank you so much. John would be so thrilled. Heís looking down.Ē

    Then he added: ďI said, ĎThatís OK. Donít worry about it.í Maybe heís looking up. I donít know.Ē

    The remark drew wary oohs and aahs from the crowd in Michigan, where John Dingell was a powerful advocate for the state he represented for more than 59 years. The comment came shortly after Debbie Dingell voted in favor of two articles of impeachment against the president. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...l-john-dingell

    Apologize to the nice lady for saying that. Think first next time.

    "Nice lady" is rather a stretch. She just voted to impeach him on specious charges. She had made an uprovable assertion, pushback on which is generally frowned upon, but I'm having a difficult time getting worked up over this one.

    Nah, this is different and he owes her the apology. His foot in mouth wasn't caused by the impeachment.

    Can't say I'm exactly worked up - it's just the right thing to do.

    It was a clumsy joke.

    Yep. And in bad taste and poorly timed. Trump messed up and should apologize for that.

    He probably should, but he probably won't.
