Democrats Applaud Congressman’s Joke About Trump’s Death

The Dems know how to give their base what it wants.

Rep. Alcee Hastings (D., Fla.) joked on Sunday that it would be a “catastrophe” if some saved a drowning President Donald Trump.

“I will tell you one joke,” Hastings said at a “Stronger Together” rally in Sunshine, Florida. “Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe? A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim. And a catastrophe is [if] anybody saves his ass.”

The joke was met with laughter and applause from the crowd.

The same comments would have touched off a week of media outrage during the Obama years. You can see the Washington Post headlines, “Watch: Republicans Applaud Potential Death of First Black President.”
