“A Connecticut man who is terminally ill received a phone call from President Donald Trump on Tuesday night, fulfilling a personal wish.
Jay Barrett, who has cystic fibrosis and is receiving palliative care, is an avid Trump supporter. Having some contact with the president was on his bucket list.
The call was facilitated by Bridgette Hoskie, Barrett`s sister, who is a local politician and a Democrat.
If I was terminally ill and receiving palliative care, I would be cognizant that my days are numbered and every minute is precious. I certainly wouldn`t waste any precious moments chatting with a conman and blithering idiot like Donald Trump.
I would call my out-of-town family and friends, and perhaps a spiritual advisor. I would call a sex line before I would ring up Trump, even a sex phone operator is more sincere and genuine than the pathological liar who sits in the Oval Office.
Talking to the stable genius was on Barrett`s bucket list, I wonder what else is on his list: Taking a selfie with Kim Jong-un? Doing the Tango with Putin?
Trump is such an insincere bastard, he told Barrett: I`m very proud of you. I`ll talk to you again, Jay, OK? Unless Trump is a medium who can communicate with the dead, he ain`t gonna talk with Barrett again.
Anyway, to each his own I guess; I hope talking with Trump gave Barrett a small measure of peace.
