You gotta’ dig deep down into the bag of spittle-flecked spite to use the obits of the dead to keep the burner under Trump hatred aflame.
The dead don’t speak but their friends and relations , who blab, can fine tune their last words without fear of fact-checking or retribution.
Telling the dying that President Donald Trump has been impeached seems to be growing into a cottage industry, if not a macabre cult as far as some news outlets are concerned.
Take Jesse Ferreras of globalnews.com who borrowed the obit of one Michael Garland Elliott from The Oregonian— and keep him, PLEASE!
Teresa, 68, who divorced Michael some 20 years ago but continued on in his life as his “best friend”, said she told her ex on his death bed that Trump was impeached over the phone from her Austin, Texas home.
“I knew it was his very, very last moments,” Teresa Elliott told The Daily News. “I knew that would bring him comfort and it did. He then took his final breath.” (Globe and Mail, April 18, 2017)
“What kind of news is this? Except another way/form of Trump bashing,” asked Canada Free Press letter writer, ‘Captain Bill’ after reading the Elliot obit.
Good question, Captain Bill. “What kind of news IS this?”
It’s the kind of “news” that purports to take President Donald Trump hatred all the way to the grave and beyond, leaving the surrealistic spectre of ghostly activists pumping for impeachment all the way from Eternity.
It’s the kind of “news” that seeks to make those among the living believe that the dying, aware that their own death is imminent, don’t think of their Creator or even their loved ones in their last gasping breaths, but only of their undying hatred of Donald Trump.
How reasonable is it to think that someone who spent an entire lifetime among family and friends would be thinking on their very death beds of Donald J. Trump?
Isn’t it the living, the Sob Sisters and Boo Hoo Brothers of a far left media who want the masses to think hating on your way out the door is the best way to go?
A dying man was told Donald Trump was impeached. Then he ‘passed away peacefully’
One of the last things that Michael Garland Elliott ever heard was that U.S. President Donald Trump had been impeached.
“He hadn’t. But just hearing it was enough for Elliott to take a “final, gentle breath,” and for his earthly work to be concluded, said an obituary published in The Oregonian newspaper.
“Elliott died on April 6, “surrounded by people who loved him dearly and cared for him selflessly during the last months of his life.”
“His age was uncertain — he wasn’t entirely sure which year he was born in.
“Michael had no family left, but he was survived by Teresa Elliott, his ex-wife and best friend, the obituary said.
“Though their marriage ran aground, their friendship only grew stronger and hers was the last voice Mike heard.”
“Teresa was the one who told Michael that Trump was impeached, The New York Daily News reported.
“I knew that would bring him comfort and it did,” she told the newspaper.
“Michael was a “news junkie” who “hated [Trump’s] effing guts,” Teresa said. And he conveyed his dislike for the president until he wasn’t able to do it anymore.
“But there was more to him than a distaste for Trump.
“Michael was also a golf enthusiast who was a founding member of Portland’s The Reserve golf club.
“He was once so frustrated by a shot that he threw every one of the clubs in his bag at a tree.
“Then, when his health declined and he couldn’t play golf anymore, he “threw things at the TV instead,” the obituary read.
“Michael isn’t the only person who referenced the 2016 election in their obituary.
“Mary Anne Noland died last year at the age of 68.
“Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God.”
“Jim Noland, Mary Anne’s husband of 46 years, said one of their sons penned the line as a way of carrying on her sense of humour, he told NBC 12.”
“You can read most anywhere in the tabloids how ‘Mrs. x told her dying mom, her estranged daughter loved her very much.
“Mr. Y told his dying drug addicted killer son, he was very much loved by his parents.
“Mr. & Mrs. Z told their dying father how Much they loved him (knowing they would inherit a large chunk of his estate )…
“Mrs. A, the young 3rd. wifey of 92-year-old oil magnate Mr. A, told her dying husband, how MUCH she loves him, while she is counting her new multi-million inheritance in the meantime …..
What’s new? Give me a break, Mr. “Journalist “. (Capt. Bill)
Meanwhile, those among us who obsess for the Impeachment of Donald Trump insist on having the last word—even if it means using the obits of loved ones to push their not-so-magnificent obsessions.
