Absolutely pathetic. But then, what else can we expect from the New York Times?
I agree with you. Disgraceful headline!

Good grief, that's so ridiculous.

No, of course not. It's the most useful headline to maintaining the desired narrative.

Even in death got to keep the narrative going

Showing that the @nytimes can't even have the respect to give @RepCummings a modicum of respect upon his death, instead choosing to make it about @realDonaldTrump. Shame on you. While I may have disagreed w him on many/most things, this is not how you show respect. https://t.co/yNNGlbnMfx

The same for this headline too. pic.twitter.com/LDovXfjX2c

We may not have agreed with Elijah Cummings on politics, but his memory still deserves better than to be weaponized.
