'Trump has been impeached,' ex-wife comforts dying man

(RNN) - "Donald Trump has been impeached" were the words of a white lie an ex-wife said she used to comfort a dying man. 

An obituary published in The Oregonian said that after Michael Garland Elliott, 75, heard that false news "he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded."

Teresa Elliott said Michael, 75, was a "news junkie" who strongly disliked Trump. 

"He hated his effing guts," she told the New York Daily News of her former husband, who died April 6 from congestive heart failure.

In Elliott's last moments, she phoned him at his Oregon home from her home in Austin, TX. 

"I knew it was his very, very last moments," said Teresa, described in the obituary as Michael's best friend. "I knew that would bring him comfort and it did. He then took his final breath."
