Democrats and Media us Trump's brothers' passing as an opportunity to blast the president.

Following the death of President Donald Trump’s brother, Robert Trump, media organizations and some Democrats predictably used the otherwise sad event to attack the President.

Trump said in a statement following his brother's death:

“It is with heavy heart I share that my wonderful brother, Robert, peacefully passed away tonight."

“He was not just my brother, he was my best friend. He will be greatly missed, but we will meet again. His memory will live on in my heart forever."

"Robert, I love you. Rest in peace.”

But Trump's heartfelt words following his brothers' death was no deterrent for Democrats and media outlets alike, who used his passing as an opportunity to blast the president

One example was the obituary in The Washington Post, who could not resist politicizing the death:

"Robert Trump, younger brother of President Trump who filed lawsuit against niece, dies at 71.”

Jerry Dunleavy for the Washington Examiner noted the sharp difference between The Washington Post’s obituary on former ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and the headline for Robert Trump’s.

The outlet used a much kinder than the headline that they used for the death of Robert Trump.

“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48.”

NewsBusters Managing Editor Curtis Houck highlighted an obituary penned by the Associated Press:

“This @AP obit[uary] of Robert Trump will go in newspapers and on websites for news outlets all over the world. Absolutely evil and sadistic.”

AP wrote that Robert Trump was “a businessman known for an even keel that seemed almost incompatible with the family name.”

There were also tweets from far-left commentators Wajahat Ali and Mehdi Hasan.

Ali wrote:

“Trump’s brother was in the hospital, dying, as Trump was on the golf course. What makes you think he cares about you America?”

Hasan wrote:

“Amazing how many news outlets are just reporting straight that the president’s brother died in hospital tonight without telling us how he died or acknowledged that it’s off we’re not being told how the president’s brother died.”

Soon enough, “Wrong Trump” began trending on Twitter as leftists started frothing at the mouth to get their digs at the president. 

Leftist pastor and author, Bishop Talbert Swan wrote:

"Dear Grim Reaper, You took the #wrongtrump."

Another user wrote:

"MAGA sending condolences is some crazy shit.trump was FUCKING golfing when his own brother was dying. If trump don’t give a shit about his own blood then he REALLY don’t give a shit about you who he don’t even know..Y’all need professional help"

But the left's attacks did not go unnoticed.

Film producer Errol Webber wrote:

"Remember all the conservatives wishing death to Obama and his family for eight years?

"No, you don’t. Because it never happened."

"This #WrongTrump hashtag is patently disgusting."

Author Peter Lloyd wrote:

"Liberals: #BeKind!"

"Also liberals: #WrongTrump"

Trump visited his brother Robert at the hospital on Friday afternoon in New York City before returning to his club at Bedminster, New Jersey.

“He’s having a hard time,” Trump told reporters.

“I have a wonderful brother.  We’ve had a great relationship for a long time, from day one.”

President Trump is expected to attend his brother’s funeral in the coming days.
