“Not funny”: Graham criticizes Trump for suggesting that John Dingell may be in hell

President Trump took a swipe at the late Representative 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 and from one of his biggest Republican allies, Senator Lindsey Graham.

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.”
