A family helped a 75-year-old man die "peacefully" last month by telling a little lie about Donald Trump.

Michael Elliot was told by his ex-wife Teresa Elliot that Trump had been impeached.

His obituary said she bought him some comfort before he passed away.

"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," the obituary stated.

The obituary also said that Elliot, who was born in Charlottesille, Virgina, but lived in Oregon, died "surrounded by people who loved him dearly and cared for him selflessly during the last months of his life."
