When American citizens wish death upon the President of the United States, it is an indicator of what a sick and demented society we have become. And it happened like clockwork. But did anyone doubt it would happen?

President Donald J. Trump's little brother and best friend Robert passed away over the weekend at 71 years old. Robert Trump had been ill, and in fact, had been hospitalized for an undisclosed illness for most of the summer. When Trump announced his brother had passed away, I knew immediately that many on the left would lament that it wasn't the president himself who has ceased breathing.

It's sad, but that's the world we live in these days. It's no longer enough to disagree with someone's politics or to count the days until his term expires. He must expire to please those with whom he disagrees.

Talbert Wesley Swan II of Springfield, Massachusetts, an American prelate of the Church of God in Christ serving as the Bishop of the Nova Scotia Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction in Canada, was the first, to my knowledge to tweet #WrongTrump in response to Robert Trump's death.

Swan, who lists Shaun King among his social media buddies, is no stranger to spreading hate on Twitter. I'll let you dig into that yourself. King, of course, is the Black Lives Matter "associate" who called for the destruction of white Christian churches and symbols.

It didn't take long for the Hollywood morons to follow Swan's lead.

It saddens me that such vile hatred exists in our great country and that it pours so freely from the mouths and pens of the very people who claim to represent God on our planet. Evil exists everywhere, but we must learn to evict it from our hearts.

If you pray, please say a prayer for the soul of Talbert Wesley Swan and others like him.
