Man died happily after family lies to him that Trump was impeached

CNN’s credibility has plunged since President Trump took office, thanks to the unending cheap shots the network takes in an attempt to undermine and embarrass him.

In its latest weak-kneed salvo, CNN spotlighted a random man’s obituary simply because it mentioned Trump in a negative light.

According to the obit, Michael Garland Elliott of Oregon died “peacefully” on April 6 after being told that Trump had been impeached:

Mike ran out of family long ago and is survived by his ex-wife and best friend, Teresa Elliott. Though their marriage ran aground, their friendship only grew stronger and hers was the last voice Mike heard. And the last thing she said to him was ‘Donald Trump has been impeached.’ Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded.

CNN comically noted in its story that “To be clear, Trump has not been impeached — but it’s safe to assume that Elliott, who was born in Charlottesille (sic), Virginia, around 1940, was not a fan of the President.”  CNN even misspelled “Charlottesville” in its inane post.

While you shouldn’t speak ill of the dead, there’s no rule saying you can’t do the same of the deceased’s survivors. In this case, the family of the deceased must have known their tongue-in-cheek obituary would get news coverage, and plenty of it. It’s unclear if the deceased would’ve approved of his family exploiting his death for 15 minutes of fame.

It’s because of this kind of nonstop, anti-Trump media coverage that the president shut down a CNN reporter in January by declaring: “You are fake news.”

Meanwhile, Twitter reacted to CNN’s “breaking news” coverage of an obscure anti-Trumper’s obituary with snarky hilarity.

CNN’s coverage has become so biased that a child at the White House Easter Egg Roll mouthed the words “fake news” behind an unsuspecting Jim Acosta.
