President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign officials have sparked a nationwide condemnation after National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley mocked Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for going to church and praying at his son Beau Biden’s grave on Election Day.
As the former Vice President was in church and praying at his son Beau Biden’s grave, Gidley tried to attack him by asking if he had called a lid – if he had told reporters the campaign would not have any more appearances or information – at 7:42 in the morning.
“Hey, anyone know if Joe Biden has called a ‘lid’ yet?” Gidley tweeted.
Social Media users were not amused and the responses were swift, with some pointing out Gidley’s bio, which begins with, “Christ alone.”
Hey Hogan "Christ Alone" Gidley, Jesus doesn't like fascism. Get yourself straightened out. Get off your knees before our wanna be dictator, and devote your life to making amends.

He’s at church, you know, the place where people of faith go for reasons other than a creepy, authoritarian photo-op.https://t.co/YgmHDmrhVN

You stay classy, #MAGAts… Trolling the man while he is literally praying at the graveside of his dead son. Nice touch for Election Day.

Please give Gidley a break. He's still recovering from contracting Covid. Studies have shown that "Covid Brain" is actually a thing. We pray that Gidley fully recovers.

Heartbreaking how anyone can mock a man who lost his son to cancer who honorably served our country.

The cruelty is the point

All of Trump’s mouthpieces and enablers should be shunned by both politics and private industry, their careers buried under the manure they’ve dished, and the earth salted for eternity.
