Hillary Clinton’s disgraceful performance at Elijah Cummings’ funeral

The funeral of Elijah Cummings (D-MD) was held today in Baltimore. Among the speakers was Hillary Clinton. In classical Hillary Clinton fashion, she used the event to attack not only President Trump, but Melania Trump as well. It was an obscene display in which she compared the Trumps to the Biblical figures of Ahab and Jezebel.

It is not my intent here to dishonor the memory of Elijah Cummings. I was not a member of his fan club, but it is time to respect the dead. What Clinton did in her 9+ minute address was to profane Cummings' service by making a thinly-disguised comparison between "our Elijah" who fought government corruption, to the "Old Testament Prophet (Elijah), who stood against the corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel." The audience recognized immediately what she was referring to and broke out in sustained applause. To be accurate, she was not the only one. Former President Barack Obama and Cummings' widow, Maya, also made veiled references to President Trump without mentioning him by name. At least they didn't compare Melania to Jezebel.

For those readers who want to view the whole thing, it can be watched here. The relevant portion comes at the 2:33 mark.

Of course, Hillary Clinton is incapable of getting through a speaking appearance without demonstrating her total lack of dignity and class. What also shines through is her sheer hypocrisy. If there is any couple in American political history that could be compared to Ahab and Jezebel, it is Bill and Hillary Clinton. Think what you will about Donald Trump though his alleged corruption remains unproven. To compare Melania Trump, our current first lady, to Jezebel is an obscenity. What has she done to merit this? Melania has conducted herself with much more grace and dignity than Hillary did as first lady--or as anything else. 

A funeral service is an occasion to honor the dead, not to attack the living. Ms. Clinton, however, is a lowlife. Her very presence casts a pall over any event. Today's performance just added another tawdry chapter to her biography.

As I commented in The NYT before it was flagged and removed, the hagiographical account of Cumming's life is the real disgrace. He did very little for his mostly black constituents and typically used his time in office to enrich himself. Hillary may have been the most egregious but she was only one of many virtue signalling grandees in attendance. Why was affirmative action fraud Elizabeth Warren there? The funeral was staged as yet another tiresome exercise in Trump bashing.
