Wow, I actually just happened to bump into him in Capitol Hill (the neighborhood - in front of Starbucks) a couple of weeks ago and gave him my support. I had no idea he had major health issues. Really sad to hear.

What are the odds Pres. Trump will say something in poor taste over this matter?   50%, 90%?

I would say close to 100% that he does or says something petty and ungracious.

I can't wait for the right-wing conspiracy about how Rep Cummings was actually about to challenge Pelosi on impeachment hearings and exonerate the president but then he died suddenly.

I knew he had some health problems but didn't know they were this bad. 68 is pretty young by modern political standards. He seemed remarkably popular across the board in Congress which is...not easy to do these days.  RIP.

Hillary is the one who murders her enemies, not Pelosi.

I think you have the wrong party when it comes to conspiracies though they both have them.   But for the last four years we have had conspiracy after conspiracy with Pres. Trump and nigh nothing.  Now they are moving on from the phone call on the Ukraine and won't take an actual impeachment vote, go figure.

Cummings was a man of great dignity, the world will be a darker place without him.

If you're keeping score the actual answer here was "he was murdered to distract from some gaffe Joe Biden made in the debate that accidentally tipped a major false flag terrorist attack at Trump's rally yesterday. they had to cancel the false flag attack but also kill off a major Democrat so no one would notice how savvily the conspiracy theorists decoded the gaffe"

That's from the Q types. I'm sure there are others.

EDIT: This thread shouldn't be about anything but Rep Cummings and I apologize for side-tracking it.
