VIDEO: Dying Man Gets Wish...a Phone Call from President Trump
Donald Trump, and stories about Tump, is a mixed bag (see WATCH: Fake Trump Supporters Dog Walked Around Hollywood to Protest Trump and WATCH: Jon Stewart Praises Donald Trump’s DOJ, Criticizes DC Spending). Here's one about the president granting a dying man his one final wish. Jay Barrett of Connecticut is living with Cystic Fibrosis. Unfortunately, doctors have only given him six months to live. All Barrett wanted was to talk to the president, of whom he's a fan.
POTUS: I read a beautiful story about you and I just said I want to call that man. That's my kind of guy.
JAY: Mr. President, through thick and thin, you know there's been a lot of thicks, there's been a lot of thins. I support you.
POTUS: Wow that's beautiful man. We love you Jay. We love you man. That's really beautiful what you just said. I wont forget it...You keep that fight going. We both keep that fight going, okay?"
JAY: I will to my end.
I'm sure I can count on #MugClub and Crowderheads across the country in lifting Jay and his family up in prayer.
No matter where you line up on Trump, sometimes it's good to remember he's also just a man, just a human being like the rest of us.
