Hillary Clinton takes a thinly veiled shot at Trump during Elijah Cummings’ funeral

Class is a characteristic that you either have or you don’t, and there’s no faking it.

It’s clear at this point that Hillary Clinton’s legacy is indelibly linked to President Donald Trump, this being more of her making than the president’s because Clinton simply cannot move on from the fact that she lost to Trump in 2016.

This was apparent once again at the funeral of the late Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., as Clinton took a subtle shot at Trump in a comment about Cummings standing up to the “corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.”

The two-time failed presidential candidate said it was “no coincidence” 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 and because of all people are equal,” Clinton added.


“Like the prophet, our Elijah could call down fire from heaven,” she said. “But he also prayed and worked for healing. He weathered storms and earthquakes but never lost his faith. Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel,” she said.

Her words drew rapturous applause in the church.

Clinton went on to make another remark about living without “fear” of our leaders.

“And he looked out for the vulnerable among us,” she said of Cummings. “He lifted up the next generation of leaders. He even worked a few miracles, and he kept reminding us life is no dress rehearsal. The American people want to live their lives without fear of their leaders, and as leaders, we have a responsibility to keep the promises made when running for office, to make the lives of Americans better.”

Some in the media also can’t get over Clinton not being elected president in 2016, as seen here:

Social media users don’t expect much from Clinton, though some were still caught by surprise over the lack of class.
