The Democrats came to honor Elijah Cummings and just could not resist taking shots at President Trump.
What is wrong with these people? I am sure Cummings would not want his own damn funeral to be about Trump?
But so it was with Barack Obama who took a few subtle shots at Trump. Hillary Clinton, of course, couldn’t pass up the chance to do the same and disgraced herself yet again.
“He was never complacent, for he knew that without clarity of purpose and a steadfast faith and a dogged determination demanded by our liberty, the promise of this nation could wither. Complacency, he knew, was not only corrosive for our collective lives, but for our individual lives,” Obama said.
“There’s nothing weak about kindness and compassion. There’s nothing weak about looking out for others.”
“There’s nothing weak about being honorable. You’re not a sucker to have integrity and to treat others with respect,” Obama continued causing most observers to view this as an implicit criticism of Trump.
“You know, this is a title that we confer on all kinds of people who get elected to public office. We’re supposed to introduce them as ‘honorable.’ But Elijah Cummings was honorable before he was elected to office,” Obama said.
“You know, this is a title that we confer on all kinds of people who get elected to public office,” Obama went on.
“We’re supposed to introduce them as ‘honorable.’ But Elijah Cummings was honorable before he was elected to office — there is a difference!”
“There is a difference if you are honorable and treated others honorably outside the limelight,” Obama added taking another shot at POTUS.
“It is no coincidence, is it, that Elijah Cummings shared a name with an Old Testament prophet, whose name meant in Hebrew ‘the lord is my god.’And who used the power and the wisdom that God gave him to uphold the moral law that all people are subject to,” Hillary said.
“Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel,” Clinton said, drawing roaring applause and laughter from the crowd.
