Whether it’s telling your homophobic grandpa on his deathbed that they’ve outlawed gay marriage, or yelling “you shall be avenged” to a friend as he has his genitals mutilated before being cut in half like in the film Bone Tomahawk, there’s no harm in telling someone a little white lie to comfort them in their final moments.
And that’s why Teresa Elliott says she has “no regrets” after calling her terminally ill ex-husband and telling him that Donald Trump had been impeached. Moments later, he died with a smile on his face.
“I told him that everything’s going to be all right,”she said. “And Donald Trump has been impeached.”
Afterward, one of his friends took the phone “and told me that he had completely relaxed and taken his last breath, and he was gone.”
