Man Dies Peacefully After Being Told Donald Trump Had Been Impeached
"An Oregon man died peacefully after being told - falsely - that President Donald Trump had been impeached, according to his obituary.
Michael Garland Elliott, 75, died April 6 after suffering from declining health. His ex-wife, Teresa Elliott, who is described in the obituary as his best friend and only surviving relative, was the last voice he heard before he passed away, according to the obituary published in the Oregonian.
She told him the president had been impeached from office.
`And the last thing she said to him was `Donald Trump has been impeached,` the obituary reads. `Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded.`"
Elliot`s wife may not have been speaking truthfully, but she was speaking prophetically. You don`t have to be a psychologist or a political science major to discern that Trump`s ignorance, ineptitude, arrogance and corruption will inevitably lead to his impeachment.
I have written dozens of articles denouncing fake news, but this is one instance where it`s morally and ethically correct to ease a loved one`s passage into the great beyond with the comforting faux news that Trump has been impeached.
I`m too much of a cynic, I wouldn`t believe it if a loved one told me that Trump had been impeached to soothe my soul as I lay on my death bed. I would demand that she would bring me Trump`s shrived up little pecker or the New York Times obituary as proof.
Let`s hope and pray that in two years the Democrats will gain control of both houses of Congress, and that they will indeed impeach the Orange Menace. Trump`s impeachment would invigorate me, and add a good ten years to my life.
