"President Trump took a swipe at the late Rep. John Dingell during his Battle Creek, Michigan rally Wednesday evening, drawing a quick rebuke from the widow of the longtime Michigan Democratic congressman who succeeded him in the House. Mr. Trump claimed Debbie Dingell had thanked him profusely for providing "A-plus treatment" after her husband’s death in February, including ordering flags flown at half-staff.
He quoted her as saying, "Thank you so much. John would be so thrilled. He’s looking down." Then he added: "I said, ‘That’s OK. Don’t worry about it.’ Maybe he’s looking up. I don’t know."
The congresswoman was quick to respond.
"Mr. President, let’s set politics aside," she tweeted. "My husband earned all his accolades after a lifetime of service. I’m preparing for the first holiday season without the man I love. You brought me down in a way you can never imagine and your hurtful words just made my healing much harder.”"
