Trump re-election campaign officials are under fire after National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley mocked Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden Election Day morning.
As Biden was in church and praying at his son Beau Biden's grave, Gidley tried to attack him by asking if he had called a lid – if he had told reporters the campaign would not have any more appearances or information – at 7:42 in the morning.

Some on social media pointed to Gidley's bio, which begins with, "Christ alone."
