Fox’s Bret Baier: Trump ‘Stepped in It’ by Suggesting John Dingell Is in Hell

Trump suggested that the late at a Wednesday rally that the late Democratic Congressman John Dingell was ‘looking up’ from Hell and it’s created a media firestorm. While White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham dismissed President Donald Trump’s comment as ‘riffing’, Fox News’ Bret Baier had some criticism.

“Let me say one thing about the Michigan incident and Debbie Dingell,” Baier said on Thursday’s America’s Newsroom.

“The President stepped in it on this. He had largely a political positive even though he was impeached, as hard as it is to believe.”

Dingell was widely admired in his native Michigan, which is where was speaking when he made the distasteful remark. Dingell’s wife and successor in his district, Debbie Dingell, expressed her dismay at Trump’s comment and said it had made her healing more difficult

Trump was lashing out at Dingell because she voted in favor of impeachment on Wednesday night. All but three Democrats voted in favor of impeachment articles, with former Republican Justin Amash joining the majority. He has not yet been the subject of Trump’s ire.
