Yes! Amen to that!

You think he wrote that?

Of course not. But I at least give him credit for issuing it and not some dumb tweet.

Horrible form. Trump shouldn’t have done that.

So sad, and he will be greatly missed.

Not sure I believe this, but it sounds like something he’d have done.

The tweet that prompted the story above. So the source was the New York Times. That makes me feel better about it.

He was only 68 correct? Nowadays that’s considered young with so many people living into their 90’s.

If he was that close to death signing something like that. It think it really could be challenged in court.

I hope someone that happens… the optics will be horrendous

Anything can be challenged in court. There are no grounds for ruling against them.

If true I have no problem with it.

Certainly no worse than the Congressman, on his death bed I believe, who was wheeled in Congress on a gurney for a critical vote.

Oh?

:thinking:

Not at all. Well not unless some idiot Republican wants to make an ass of themself.

Of ciurse there has been plenty of that happening on the Right?

They would likely have to prove he was mentally incapable at the time.

That would be a fun can of worms for them to open, what with Obese Donald channeling Captain Queeg of late.

:laughing:

I agree it’d look awful to challenge anything he signed. I believe it just means he worked until the end. Good for him. He’s dead, he worked till the end, God speed.
