He died “peacefully” after a loved one told him a sweet, sweet lie: Donald Trump has been impeached.
On April 6, Michael Garland Eliot passed away, according to an obituary in The Oregonian.
The last word he heard? Our president was history.
Teresa Elliot, his “ex-wife and best friend,” shared the decidedly fake news to Michael on his deathbed in order to bring him comfort in his last moments on this irritating planet.
According to the obit:
“Mike ran out of family long ago and is survived by his ex-wife and best friend, Teresa Elliott. Though their marriage ran aground, their friendship only grew stronger and hers was the last voice Mike heard. And the last thing she said to him was ‘Donald Trump has been impeached.’ Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded.”
The obituary also claims the Charlottesville, Va. native died “surrounded by people who loved him dearly and cared for him selflessly during the last months of his life.”
He’s in a better place now. Those of us he left behind are not.
