Damn how do you even defend his statements regarding Dingell?

Widow, Republicans and Democrats blast Trump for crass Dingell 'hell' comment

https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/trump-makes-hell-acious-crack-about-deceased-rep-john-dingell-n1104711

Rep. Debbie Dingell called President Donald Trump's suggestion that her late lawmaker husband John Dingell was "looking up" from hell hurtful on Thursday as a bipartisan group of lawmakers demanded the president apologize for the macabre crack.

Dingell told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell she was stunned when she learned about Trump's comments about her husband during his Wednesday night rally in her home state of Michigan.

You straight up have to drop your IQ to the level of a brick to attempt to defend those remarks.

Why does he behave this way?

Judging by supporters' comments on Reddit's AskTrumpSupporters subreddit, the majority of his proponents believe comments such as these to be hilarious since they "trigger the libs".

In my opinion it is absolutely indefensible for the President of the United States to behave in such a careless, crass manner, but then again, that's just par for the course in regard to this presidency.

EDIT: I will clarify that the majority of supporters who are aware of statements such as these (and active on social media) appear to defend them by suggesting it's all somehow funny. I genuinely believe the majority of his support base is willfully unaware of how often Trump has made similar statements or simply apathetic since he's "on their side".

I'm not surprised Trump said such a thing.

Yeah, that was pretty stupid. I wish he'd take a few deep breaths before jumping on stage and venting spleen.

Dingell deserves it. That whole family has screwed Michigan for decades and continues to do so.

He acts like a disrespectful piece of shit on the daily and his supporters just laugh and say get over it. Remind me to never consider any of them to be christians ever again.

Yep... of course. That's more important than fighting climate change.

This administration has been eye opening across the party spectrum. Every principle they professed to adhere to other than tax cuts and white nationalist concerns have been shattered.

Yeah, I don't know how I'm supposed to believe that they actually have the convictions they say they do if they can laugh off Trump saying that a recently deceased person is in hell and continue to support him.

The whole, "It's just a joke, bra!" mantra that they use to excuse everything Trump says just doesn't work for me, and for whatever reason this instance is particularly stunning. Maybe because of the lack of class, or the fact that he's being shitty to a widowed woman in congress and nobody seems to care, or maybe it's because he's making fun of the idea that people go to hell which inherently pokes fun at religion, but this and the general reaction to it (or lack there of) just really bothers me.

Honestly, how trump treats and uses evangelicals says all you need to know about him. And it should be all they need to not support him.

And basic human empathy.

The guy is an animal, and a child. And I don't mean that as hyperbole, like "oh the man is a savage, an animal" or "he is immature".

I mean he just lacks all of the psychological components that a basic human and adult has. The critter is beneath us, all of us.

How did John Dingell screw Michigan? Link?

Does this mean you also want the Trump and his family to go to hell? They have screwed over many people, and that's a fact going by lawsuit records.

And showing that the government is incompetent and that every task the government have, should be filled by private interests.

Purchases have increased, hasn't it?

Actually no that doesn't have to increase. Filling positions with people which lack the qualifications for the roles they are supposed to fill. Or simply having the mantra of the government doesn't work, so I shouldn't be working when filling this position.

Although most commonly done by starving the beast.
