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



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?


MUST SEE: Enormous Gorillas Turn into Scaredy Cats in Hilarious Viral Video

The hilarious clip is something that almost all of us can relate to.




When it comes to the animal kingdom, there are few beasts more frightening than those in the gorilla family. Their sheer strength is conveyed by their hulking and brutally-muscled bodies, which are capable of producing power at a rate nine times that of man.  Scientists have indicated that a Silverback Gorilla may be capable of lifting up to 1.800 pounds of dead weight. That’s nearly the curb weight of a ultra-compact car. Knowing what we know about these creatures, it stands to reason that almost nothing in the natural world would disturb or deter them…. ….except for maybe a little rain. These gorillas from a zoo in South Carolina have met their match in rain shower, in the above clip which has gone viral this week. The prancing primates were all the rage on Twitter as well. Some have pointed out, however, that wild gorilla will enjoy a good rain from time to time, leading some to believe that these apes may just be a bit spoiled.

VIDEO: Cancer Survivor’s First Pitch Ended Up a Low Blow

While the catcher wasn’t able to snag the throw, a camera man just happened to be in the line of fire… in a most unfortunate way.




One of the most wince-inducing first pitches ever occurred at Fenway this week. It wasn’t wince-inducing because it was a bad pitch, per se. It was wince-inducing for where it ended up. Jordan Leandre was invited to throw out the first pitch during Wednesday’s Boston Red Sox-St. Louis Cardinals game at Fenway Park because he is a 17-year-old cancer survivor. Clearly he wasn’t invited for his baseball skills. The teen stepped up to the mound and wound up to let loose a bit of a wild throw toward home plate if not exactly AT home plate. The pitch went high and wide, high enough to fly out of reach for the catcher. But while the catcher wasn’t able to snag the throw, a camera man just happened to be in the line of fire… in a most unfortunate way. Leandre’s pitch nailed Lawrence Eagle photographer Tony Capobianco right in the worst place possible. This video is not to be missed: Wowie. Leandre’s face after the disastrous throw says it all.
