Talk about grasping at straws …
It’s come to this, folks: Speaking at a rally in Nevada on October 5, Donald Trump urged the terminally ill to vote for him.
As he was finishing up an attempt to get all of his supporters to vote — no matter where they are in life — he went rogue from his speech and, in a weirdly Trump-esque statement, said the following:
“I don’t care how sick you are. I don’t care if you just came back from the doctor and he gave you the worst possible prognosis, meaning it’s over. Doesn’t matter. Hang out ’till November 8. Get out and vote. And then, all we’re gonna say is: ‘We love you and we will remember you always.'”
But hey … democracy, right? (And guess what, Donald? For the working poor, becoming terminally ill without insurance means that a whole host of issues are created during the dying process, and after they’re gone, it can leave those families destitute.)
