“It’s a cemetery. Where his son is buried. Are you human?” California Democrat Eric Swalwell tweeted.
American actress Mia Farrow says: “Joe Biden went to his son’s grave. You’re not even human.”
“It’s mocking Joe Biden, director of strategic response to the Trump campaign, for walking to the cemetery, where Donald Trump spent his day on the golf course,” Democrat chairman Andrew Weinstein wrote to the bar.

The president said Friday night that John Kelly, his former chief of staff, could be a source of such claims, which could hurt Trump’s November re-election campaign bid.

Democrats and Republicans somehow spread the word. Former Republican defense secretary Chuck Hagel told ABC’s “This Week” that the comments were “trivial” if true.
Mr Hegel said the reports were “credible” because they were consistent with previous public statements that Trump had insulted military personnel, including former US Secretary of Defense James Mattis and US Senator John McCain.
