Rep. Alcee Hastings was recently speaking at an event in Florida and decided it was appropriate to make a joke about President Trump drowning and how awful it would be if someone saved him.
Try to imagine the reaction from Democrats and the media if a Republican made the same joke about Obama while he was president. They would go crazy and the Republican would be called a racist.
The Daily Caller reports:
DEM REP. ALCEE HASTINGS JOKES ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP DROWNING IN THE POTOMAC RIVER
“I will tell you one joke,” Hastings said. “Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe?”
“‘A crisis is if Donald Trump falls into the Potomac River and can’t swim,’” Hastings said, retelling the joke. “‘And a catastrophe is anybody saves his ass.’”
The crowd cheered and whooped in delight at the joke.

Crisis: if @realDonaldTrump falls into the Potomac River & can’t swim.
Catastrophe: If “anybody saves his ass.”
