There are things to talk about when your father is dying. Politics isn’t one of them. If he didn’t lie to her, he only did it because he loves his daughters. A last effort to do something she or they asked him for. He’s dying young at age 55. He’ll meet His Maker soon. That Entity will understand what and why he did it. His girls weren’t listening. Maybe circumstance will teach them where he couldn’t.
A dying father deserves dignity
What on earth is this doing on social media? This is a private time that surpasses everything this earth offers.
One of the daughters held up note cards in the video talking about what happened. “My 55-year-old conservative dad has never voted Democrat in his LIFE. He’s dying of Aplastic Anemia. We’ve had some intense exchanges about him voting for Trump this year, which has been painful, since we’ll almost certainly lose him in the next few weeks/months. He has six daughters who love him dearly. Yesterday, he was so excited to tell me he’d just voted for BIDEN/HARRIS 2020!!!! Because ‘It matters to my girls and my girls matter to me.’ Vote for the guy who respects women! If my VERY Republican dad can… SO. CAN. YOU.”
Don’t badger somebody who is dying
Into doing something they might not ordinarily do! Mark Nevin tweeted that well: “Poor man, badgered into submission by his manipulative daughters in the last days of his life”
That goes both ways. Politics should be left out of a person’s last days period. The Reagan Battalion chimed in: “Sad and sick. And would say the same if she were a Trump supporter badgering her dad on his death bed about his plans to vote for Biden. Sick people.”
The dying father may have lied to them
He probably understood the deathbed isn’t the place to be arguing about something like this. Let it go. That has to have made him so sad that she doesn’t understand that.
Ann Coulter suggested he may have done just that. “I hope he lied to them.” Another tweet was happy to have had time with her dad before he passed. Kelly Jane Torrance said, “I wasn’t lucky enough to be able to have conversations with my father when he was dying—he went into a coma quickly, from which he never recovered. But if I’d had the opportunity, hectoring him about politics would never even have occurred to me. I’m sorry for all involved here.”
