White House reporter Andrew Feinberg mocked President Trump Friday evening over the death of the President’s younger brother Robert Trump. Feinberg is the White House correspondent and Managing Editor of Breakfast Media and is published by The Independent.
Robert Trump’s funeral was held at the White House Friday afternoon. He died last Saturday in New York City at the age of 71.
President Trump tweeted after the funeral, “Robert, I Love You. Rest In Peace!”
Robert, I Love You. Rest In Peace!

A mere ten minutes later Feinberg mocked President Trump, “Not sure twitter works in the hereafter.” The sickening tweet has since been deleted.

Deputy White House Press Secretary Judd Deere followed with a stronger condemnation, “Absolutely disgusting!”

Instead of apologizing to President Trump and Robert Trump’s family when called out, Feinberg attacked Murtaugh and Deere, playing the victim and accusing them of inciting harassment against him.
“Hi, Tim. You know full well how to reach me if have a problem with something I’ve written, and had you chosen to do so, I’d have been happy to address this. What’s unacceptable is you firing up your campaign’s harassment machine instead of acting like an adult.”
“You *definitely* know how to reach me if you have a problem, Judd. Because you and your colleagues have approached me about such matters before — and you know I’ve been responsive — it’s clear that your intent here is to direct harassment, not express any legitimate concerns.”
