On Friday, leaders from Capitol Hill gathered to honor Rep. Elijah Cummings. Cummings passed away at the age of 68 and represented a district in Baltimore, Maryland. Typically, partisanship is placed aside by those in attendance. This is not the case with Rep. Cummings funeral, however.
It actually reminds me of a time when Rahm Emmanuel said you can never let a good crisis go to waste. Democrats, could not let the opportunity go to waste. Several cheap shots were taken at President Trump as part of the event. In the end, this left the funeral as a disgrace more than a memorial.
The cheapest shot of all was in statements made by Hillary Clinton. She liked the late Cummings to Elijah from the Bible. In her comments, she quoted stories about Elijah and how Cummings acted similarly in events he faced. One of her statements included the story of Elijah and the names of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel. In the statements, Clinton made reference to how Elijah stood up to the King and Queen, and indicated that Cummings had done similarly.
Clinton took to the opportunity as a political speech rather than a memorial speech. While I guess this should not surprise me given this is how these have went in recent memories. Yet, it still bothers me at how almost childish this has become. Before you get upset at what I’m saying here, let me continue.
I’ve made many statements about how Trump acts and says things. He has made childish remarks and acted childishly when facing difficult circumstances or even simple media questioning. I agree that Trump needs to take the high road a lot of times in dealing with Democrats. Democrats will do things to get him to respond so they can continue to attack.
In this circumstance, Hillary Clinton shows just how low she can really go. She only has one thing on her mind, herself. This has to be one of the most selfish displays out of a politician of her caliber. Rather than honoring a man that had died, she decides to almost make her campaign launch speech from his funeral.
While I never agreed with Cummings on anything, I certainly would not disgrace him at his funeral attacking anyone. It was tasteless, disgraceful and embarrassingly pathetic. Want to see how much Trump has shaken up the political sphere in DC? The video of this funeral is all you need to see. I’ve linked it here if you want to watch.
The Democrats have shown that they are intolerant in recent years. Attacks on anything conservative have shown us that they simply do not care about conservative viewpoints. Now, it’s more than just simple conservative viewpoints. At any given opportunity, they plan to show their lack of tolerance, even in a time that is supposed to be a memorial.
