Trump to attend wake for slain NYPD cop while Biden lives it up with celebs

Former President Donald J. Trump will attend the wake for slain NYPD cop Jonathan Diller while Joe Biden will be living it up with celebs at a star-studded fundraiser at Radio City Music Hall.

On Thursday, the preemptive GOP nominee will pay his respects to the 31-year-old officer who was gunned down in cold blood by a career criminal on Monday, leaving a one-year-old boy fatherless and his wife a widow in the tragic incident in the crime-ridden Democrat-controlled city.

“President Trump is moved by the invitation to join NYPD Officer Jonathan Diller’s family and colleagues as they deal with his senseless and tragic death,” Trump spokesperson Karoline Leavitt said in a statement on Wednesday. The wake will be held at the Massapequa Funeral Home on Long Island.

The young police officer was shot in the stomach during a traffic stop in Queens, screaming in pain as he fell to the ground but still managing to wrestle the gun away from the suspect, 34-year-old Guy Rivera, a man with an extensive rap sheet.

While Trump will join grieving family and law enforcement officers at the somber occasion to mark the premature end to the life of one of New York’s finest, the octogenarian Democrat will be joined by former presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton at the soiree which will feature late-night TV host Stephen Colbert, Queen Latifah and Lizzo.

Biden may be lagging Trump in the polls, but he is flush with cash and will stuff another $25 million into his campaign coffers at the event expected to be attended by around 5,000 people, according to the Associated Press.

“This historic raise is a show of strong enthusiasm for President Biden and Vice President Harris and a testament to the unprecedented fundraising machine we’ve built,” Biden-Harris campaign co-chair Jeffrey Katzenberg said. “Unlike our opponent, every dollar we’re raising is going to reach the voters who will decide this election — communicating the president’s historic record, his vision for the future and laying plain the stakes of this election.”

“More money gets donors more intimate time with the presidents. A photo with all three is $100,000. A donation of $250,000 earns donors access to one reception, and $500,000 gets them into an even more exclusive gathering,” according to AP which quotes longtime Democrat operative Leon Panetta who said of Clinton and Obama, “I can’t think of two people who would be better at putting together that kind of message.”

The real message being sent couldn’t be clearer with Trump paying his respects to the fallen officer while the anti-cop Democrats and their leader wallow with the pigs on the other side of town.
