Oregon man dies peacefully thinking President Donald Trump had been impeached

If there’s any reason to spread fake news, this may be it: An Oregon man who disapproved of President Donald Trump died peacefully after being told our Commander-in-Chief had been impeached.

Seventy-five-year-old Michael Garland Elliott's obituary, published in The Oregonian, said his ex-wife and best friend Teresa Elliott was the last person he spoke with before dying at his home on April 6.

“The last thing she said to him was, 'Donald Trump has been impeached.' Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded,” the obituary reads.

Teresa Elliott told the New York Daily News that her ex-husband died of congestive heart failure after his health had declined over several years’ time. She also said he "expressed his disapproval of the president frequently until he couldn’t communicate it verbally."

“I knew it was his very, very last moments,” Teresa Elliott told The Daily News. “I knew that would bring him comfort and it did. He then took his final breath.”
