Michigan Congressional RINOs Demand President Trump Apologize for Slamming Deceased Democrat John Dingell
Congressional RINOs from the state of Michigan are demanding that President Donald Trump apologize after his take-down of deceased career politician John Dingell, who served in Congress as a Democrat for nearly 60 years.
Trump shared an anecdote of how Debbie Dingell, who is now in Congress in her late husband’s former seat, betrayed him with her pro-impeachment vote after he was so gracious toward her following her husband’s death in February.
“Then you have this Dingell. Dingell. You know Dingell from Michigan, you know Dingell, you ever hear of her, Michigan? Debbie Dingell, that’s a real beauty. So she calls me up like eight months ago. Her husband was there a long time — but I didn’t give him the B treatment. I didn’t give him the C or the D. I could have. Nobody would have — I gave the A+ treatment,” Trump explained during last night’s rally in Battle Creek, MI.
“‘Take down the flags!’ ‘Why you taking them down?’ ‘For ex-congressman Dingell.’ ‘Oh OK.’ ‘Do this, do that, do that, rotunda.’ Everything. I gave him everything. That’s OK! Don’t want anything for it. I don’t need anything for anything,” he added.
This is when Trump made the controversial comment, indicating that the late Democratic legislator may be in Hell for his lifetime of serving the Washington D.C. swamp.
“She calls me up. It’s the nicest thing that’s ever happened. ‘Thank you so much. John should be so thrilled. He’s looking down. He’d be so thrilled. Thank you so much, sir.’ I said, ‘That’s OK, don’t worry about it.’ Maybe he’s looking up. I don’t know. I don’t know. maybe. Maybe. But let’s assume he’s looking down,” Trump said.
These comments have caused two of Michigan’s worst RINOs in Congress to demand that President Trump apologize for making his tongue-in-cheek comment about the dead Democrat.
“John Dingell was a well-respected man & I consider Debbie a close colleague and friend. To use his name in such a dishonorable manner at last night’s rally is unacceptable from anyone, let alone the President of the United States,” tweeted Rep. Paul Mitchell, who is not seeking re-election at the end of his Congressional term. “An apology is due, Mr. President.”
Rep. Fred Upton, who led the “Never Trump” movement against President Trump in 2016, also called for President Trump to grovel because of his candid remarks.
“I’ve always looked up to John Dingell — my good friend and a great Michigan legend. There was no need to ‘dis’ him in a crass political way. Most unfortunate and an apology is due,” Upton tweeted.
Debbie Dingell used Trump’s remarks as an opportunity to play the victim with help from the fake news media.
“The rhetoric, the bullying, the viciousness isn’t OK and there are too many people across this country that are beginning to think that it is OK,” she said.
However, nothing is more vicious than the impeachment witch hunt that has been launched against President Trump by the deep state and the Democrat Party, and Dingell did not have the courage to vote against yesterday’s partisan stunt.
