Many reasonable-minded Americans strongly oppose a Hillary Clinton presidency, but this may be the first time a dead person is begging you not to support her.
A grieving North Carolina family honored its late grandfather’s request by asking readers of his obituary not to vote for Clinton.
“Also, the family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016. R.I.P. Grandaddy,” the obit, published Friday in the Concord-Kannapolis Independent Tribune, said.
WBTV News reporter David Whisenant shared the plea on Twitter:

Of course, now that granddaddy has died, his odds of voting for a Democratic ticket just went up substantially, as more than one social media user noted.
Here is a sampling of other responses that suggest the 2016 presidential election promises to be one for the history books.
