President Donald Trump ripped Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-MI) during a Michigan rally because she voted to support impeachment. Trump said that he deserved better because she asked him once to lower the flags for her husband when he died.
The late-John Dingell was known as the “dean of the House” and was the longest-serving member in Congress.
“I didn’t give him the ‘B’ treatment. I didn’t give him the ‘C’ or ‘D.’ I could have,” Trump told the Michigan crowd. “Nobody would have — you know. I gave him the A+ treatment. Takedown the flags. ‘Why are you taking them down?’ For ex-Congressman Dingell. Ok. ‘Do this. Do that. Rotunda. Everything. I gave him everything. But that’s OK, I don’t want anything for it. I don’t need anything for anything. She calls me up, ‘Thank you so much. John would be so thrilled. He’s looking down he’d be so thrilled.’ I said, ‘Maybe he’s looking up, I don’t know.'”
The shocked audience then gasped and booed while some whistled.

GOPer threatens to quit party on live TV over QAnon Republicans ‘who think Lord of the Rings is a documentary’
Rep. Denver Riggleman (R-VA) on Sunday slammed members of his own party who believe in conspiracy theories pushed by QAnon.
During an interview on Meet the Press, host Chuck Todd asked Riggleman about "this wacky QAnon conspiracy that has led to some violent actions."
Todd noted that Republican Party had officially endorsed and funded QAnon follower Marjorie Taylor Greene for Congress.
"I might as well just piss everybody off," Riggleman replied. "I think if we're doing this, if we're looking at misinformation to pander to a subset of voters, I think we've lost our way."
CNN’s Tapper fires back at White House’s Meadows for personal attack about mask-wearing
During a long and very contentious interview with White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, CNN "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper snapped back at Donald Trump's righthand man for trying to mock him for not wearing a mask during the interview where Meadows was not in the studio.
After grilling Meadows for agreeing to designate Vice President Mike Pence as an "essential worker" so he can continue to campaign for Donald Trump after his office became a COVID-19 hotspot, the CNN host pressed Meadows why the president continues to refuse to wear a mask and doesn't demand it of his rallygoers.
Chris Wallace battles GOP chairwoman over laptop smear: ‘Do you have any proof Joe Biden took one penny?’
Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel on Sunday refused to say if she had any proof of allegations of corruption against Democratic nominee Joe Biden's son Hunter.
Fox News host Chris Wallace grilled McDaniel about the Trump campaign's smear against the Biden family on Fox News Sunday.
"Do you have any proof -- because he's denied it -- do you have any proof that Joe Biden every took one penny from either a foreign country or a foreign company?" Wallace asked.
"I think that's incumbent upon the press to start investigating," McDaniel replied. "I think what's frightening is we should have a free and fair press that should be looking at a laptop that has not been disputed by the Biden campaign to be authentic. These emails are deeply troubling as it looks like Hunter Biden is negotiating with a Chinese energy company to profit, not just for himself, but for his father."
