WH Defends Trump’s Attack On Late Democrat

Mediaite reports:

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham defended President Donald Trump’s attacks against late Rep. John Dingell, who has been dead for almost a year, saying that his implied comments about the Democratic Congressmen being in hell were just an example of him “riffing” and “counterpunching.”

During Trump’s Michigan rally on Wednesday night, he lashed out at Dingell after his wife Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI), who has served in her husband’s seat since 2014, supported impeachment.

While speaking at the Trump campaign rally, the president sarcastically called Debbie Dingell “a real beauty” and noted that he had U.S. flags lowered to half-mast to commemorate his passing.
