An Oregon man died "peacefully" after a friend falsely told him that President Trump had been impeached.
Michael Garland Elliot died on April 6, according to his obituary in The Oregonian, and the final words he heard were that the president had been impeached.
Elliot's "ex-wife and best friend" Teresa Elliot shared the false news to bring him comfort in his final moments, according to the obit.
"Mike ran out of family long ago and is survived by his ex-wife and best friend, Teresa Elliott," the obituary read. "Though their marriage ran aground, their friendship only grew stronger and hers was the last voice Mike heard. And the last thing she said to him was 'Donald Trump has been impeached.' Upon hearing that he took his final, gentle breath, his earthly work concluded," reads the obituary.
The obituary said Elliot, a native of Charlottesville, Va., died "surrounded by people who loved him dearly and cared for him selflessly during the last months of his life."
