At the Elijah Cummings funeral in Baltimore, Hillary Clinton compared Melania Trump to Jezebel from the bible.
She also took the funeral to make a Biblical attack on Donald Trump. Cummings’ died this month at 68 and Hillary compared him to the prophet who “stood against corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel.”
Watch the moment below.
She did not name President Trump by name but the message was apparent. Cummings was behind the impeachment inquiry into the President.
“Our Elijah could call down fire from heaven. But he also prayed and worked for healing,” Clinton said.
“Like that Old Testament prophet, he stood again corrupt leadership of King Ahab and Queen Jezebel,” she said.
“He weathered storms and earthquakes, but he never lost his faith,” Clinton continued.
“And he looked out for the vulnerable among us. And he kept reminding us, life is no dress rehearsal,” she added.
“The American people want to live their lives without fear of their leaders,’ Clinton said, ‘and as leaders, we have a responsibility to keep the promises made when running for office to make the lives of Americans better,” she said.
Clinton said in the speech that Cummings had “little tolerance for those who put party above country or partisanship above truth.”
Cumming’s widow, Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, said that Trump’s attacks on Baltimore hurt her dead husband. She is now Democratic party chair in Maryland state.
She said Cummings was fighting the “very real corruption” in the country with the goal of saving “the soul of our democracy.”
‘He was never complacent, for he knew that without clarity of purpose and a steadfast faith and a dogged determination demanded by our liberty, the promise of this nation could wither,’ Obama said about Cummings.
