WATCH: Florida Congressman Makes Tasteless Joke About Trump Dying to the Delight of the Crowd

Published

You think Democrats would have found a new schtick beyond simply relentlessly bashing the President, but not only have they not moved on from pure, unfiltered hatred for POTUS, they’re doubling-down on the violent rhetoric.

And by violent, I mean violent.

A Florida Congressman recently joked to a crowd, not in private, mind you, but to an actual crowd of people, that it would be catastrophic if no one let Trump drown were he to fall in the Potomac river.

I just ruined the punchline, but believe me, it doesn’t land anyway.

Western Journal reports:

Florida Democrat Rep. Alcee Hastings is making waves over a joke he made at a “Stronger Together” rally Sunday in Sunshine, Florida.

The congressman had heard the joke by Ari Silver, the son of former Florida state legislator Barry Silver, and decided to repeat it for the crowd.

“Ari asked the audience the other night in Palm Beach country, he said, ‘Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe?” Hastings started.

The crowd could be heard chuckling.

“And no one held (up) their hand,” he said, “so Ari answered for us, he says, ‘A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim,’ he says and, ‘and a catastrophe is if anybody saves his a–.’”

The crowd then erupted in laughter.

You can see the moment where Hastings paused for effect, allowing the audience to cackle in delight.

Can you even imagine if anyone had made a joke like this about Obama? The meltdown would have been insane.

And for good reason, really! This man is a Congressman, not some B-list stand-up comedian *cough* Kevin Hart *cough cough*.  It is far, far beneath his office to be joking about letting a sitting President drown. 

It’s also pretty tasteless considering one of his own, the late Ted Kennedy, literally let a girl drown in the Chappaquiddick River when he crashed his car into it while intoxicated.

Do Democrats have no shame, no memory…or are simply so blinded by hatred they see nothing but red?
