Failed 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is so obsessed with her loss against President Donald Trump that she can’t even put her anger away for a funeral speech.
During the funeral of the recently passed Rep. Elijah Cummings, Clinton took a not-so-veiled shot at Trump.
Comparing Cummings to the Elijah of the Bible, Clinton said Cummings could “call down fire from Heaven” and “weathered storms and earthquakes.” That’s when Clinton took a swipe at Trump…during a eulogy.
“Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel,” said Clinton.
The crowd erupted into applause at that line, knowing exactly what comparison she was drawing with that tidbit of information.
“The American people want to live their lives without fear of their leaders,” she said later in the eulogy.
She added that it’s their responsibility as leaders to uphold the promises made to the people during campaigns and later said that Cummings embodied values, including putting an emphasis on “kindness” when describing him.
This all comes off as a bit more than disgusting for multiple reasons. During a funeral for my family member, I’d be angry about the fact that a speaker defined their lives by who the speaker’s most hated enemy was at the time. It’s a shallow look into the impact someone made on this planet, and a look at how shallow the person making the remarks are.
However, the crowd erupted into applause showing just how much Trump is living rent-free in their heads. Still, taking the time to hate on someone at someone else’s funeral seems a bit much, and if any of them in that place where the funeral was being held had any self-awareness, they may want to take a step back and take a look at the state of their spirit.
Clinton definitely should.
