75-year-old Michael Garland Elliott died on April 6, surrounded by his loved ones, happy in the knowledge that President Donald Trump had just been impeached.
Of course, Drumpf hasn’t been impeached, but as his ex-wife and best friend Teresa Elliott tells the NY Daily News, it was a lie that would make Michael feel better because “he hated his effing guts.”
Michael, who died of congestive heart failure after years of declining health, was a “news junkie” who loved reading about politics until he wasn’t well enough to do so.
So in his final moments, Teresa decided to give him hope for the future of the country. She explains:
“I knew it was his very, very last moments. I knew that would bring him comfort and it did. He then took his final breath.”
We’re not sure we could lie to a loved one like that. But Teresa doesn’t regret it for a second. She says:
“If I could leave him with a happy piece of news then why wouldn’t I? And maybe in the end it won’t turn out to be a lie.”
OK, now she’s just saying what we want to hear. Wait, are WE dying???
What do you think, Perezcious readers? Could YOU lie to a loved one on their deathbed?
