Dem Rep. Hastings gets massive laughs for joking about Trump drowning in Potomac
Longtime Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings drew massive laughs at a political rally Sunday when he cracked a joke about President Trump drowning in the Potomac River.
The Florida congressman was speaking at a &ldquoStronger Collectively&rdquo Democratic occasion and underscored some of his Trump warnings by relaying a joke he heard from the son of a former state lawmaker.
It went like this:
&ldquoDo you know the distinction among a crisis and a catastrophe? &hellip A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can&rsquot swim &hellip A catastrophe is anybody saves his a–.&rdquo
The story of the joke was met with uproarious laughter and applause &ndash and also uploaded to YouTube.
As reported by the Sen Sentinel, Hastings also stated at the rally that &ldquosomething is tragically incorrect&rdquo with Trump and quipped that if Special Counsel Robert Mueller doesn&rsquot bring down Trump, &ldquoOmarosa will&rdquo &ndash in reference to the fired White Home aide and reality Tv star now buying her tell-all memoir on her time with the Trump White Property and campaign.
The Florida event reportedly was attended by four Democratic gubernatorial candidate as properly as Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.
This is not the first time Hastings has expressed his contempt for Trump in off-color terms. The Sun Sentinel noted in 2016, he called Trump a &ldquosentient pile of excrement.&rdquo
