Trump Comments on Cokie Roberts’ Death: ‘She Never Treated Me Nicely’

Veteran newswoman Cokie Roberts passed away on Tuesday at the age of 75 due to complications from breast cancer.

Naturally, this means Donald Trump has to find some angle to wedge himself into the story:

Incredible. The man has all the empathy and social skills of a sociopathic ferret.

Roberts could indeed be tough on Trump, because she was a good, tenacious, dogged reporter who did not shy from asking tough questions of him:

Maybe Trump never met her in person, but they at least talked on the phone. And it did not go well for him.
