Florida Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings made a terrible joke at a rally Sunday about it being a “catastrophe” for President Trump not to die.
Daily Caller reports:
Hastings was speaking at a rally in Sunshine, Florida. when he repeated a joke he heard from Ari Silver, the son of former Florida state legislator Barry Silver.
“I will tell you one joke,” Hastings said. “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,’” Hastings said, retelling the joke. “‘And a catastrophe is anybody saves his ass.’”
The crowd cheered and whooped in delight at the joke.
While Hastings’ bad-taste joke is shocking, it’s only the latest in the Left’s consistent habit of fantasizing about the President’s death. From Cathy Griffin to Snoop Dogg, these jokes are becoming more and more common.
