Elijah Cummings’ widow reveals to The View that Trump’s ‘minions’ bombarded family with death threats: ‘It undermined his health’


Recommended Posts

The widow of Rep. Elijah Cummings revealed to “The View” that President Donald Trump’s attacks motivated his supporters to bombard their family with death threats.

 

Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, who’s running for her late husband’s seat in Maryland, said she hoped to build on his legacy as a champion of civil rights and fight back against Republican attempts to limit access to voting.

 

“We felt like this was our zero moment as a nation, that we have to make sure that we’re all on the battlefield fighting for our future, and so while it does not look good in terms of President Trump and the Republicans,” she said. “What they’re doing to try to take us back 100 years in this country, the fact of the matter is that people are rising up all across the country. They are saying that we will not be oppressed, you will not take our democracy away from us. We have hordes of women who are running to take office, we have young people who are standing up and speaking out.”

 

The president resented Cummings from the beginning, and he often hurled attacks at the Maryland Democrat and his home city of Baltimore.

 

“It hurt him deeply,” Cummings said. “Absolutely, and it hurt him at his worst moment. Elijah was already battling health issues, so to have the president come out and do this at that time, you know, it really depressed him and it stressed him, and I think it undermined his health.”

 

Co-host Meghan McCain, whose father died in 2018 after enduring attacks from Trump, was appalled.

 

“That is horrific,” McCain said. “That is horrific. I’m sorry, that is just — that is hard to hear. I’m sorry.”

 

“It was our reality,” Cummings said. “Absolutely, and all of his minions out there — nasty tweets, death threats, you name it, we were going through it.”

Take RACISM out of the equation.....who would vote republiKlan?

 

 

besides the Corporations to avoid paying Taxs...

Capitalists. Working white men. Those opposed to abortion as secondary birth control. Those who support Israel. Those that don't believe intact males belong in women's showers. People who believe in the freedom of religion and the right to bear arms. Those that don't think 10 year olds should be taught about the joys of anal sex. People that are not part of the loose coalition of the perpetually aggrieved that the progressives wish to give special rights and status to.

Poor beanie.

 

SUCKED IT UP LIKE THAT SCHIT HE SUCKS THROUGH A STRAW DAILY!!!

 

Psssst. SCHITSTAIN, there were NO "death threats" PERIOD!!! SHE LIED TO YOU FOR YOUR SYMPATHY!!!
 

BECAUSE, if there WERE DEATH THREATS, you would hear about it and the ARRESTS that were made.

 

Trust me, the CAPITAL POLICE are just as good as the Secret Service or FBI in investigating REAL crimes.

 

But as for these MADE UP ONES, you can forget it.

 

WHY your side won't call out these LIARS is pathetic.

 

Oh wait, that's right, you have to LIE TO YOU SCHITSTAINS FOR THE CAUSE, right ASS HOLE?????
