Cummings’ widow responds to Trump’s attacks

Dr. Maya Rockeymoore Cummings, the widow of the late Rep. Elijah Cummings, appeared to respond to President Trump’s previous attacks of her husband during a speech at his funeral.

Rockeymoore Cummings spoke near the end of a lengthy funeral program at New Psalmist Baptist Church, where Cummings worshiped for decades — showing up regularly on Sunday mornings for the 7:15 service.

She was followed by former presidents Bill Clinton — who visited the church with Cummings in the 1990s — and Barack Obama, the nation’s first black commander in chief, both of whom hailed the longtime lawmaker as an inspiration and a friend.

Cummings was the son of sharecroppers who moved to Baltimore to build a better life for their seven children. His parents ‘‘came from nothing and carved out just a little something,’’ Obama said, adding that Cummings ‘‘went on to fight for the rights and opportunities of forgotten people all across America.’’

Obama, who has remained largely silent amid the convulsive impeachment debate now gripping the nation, offered a tribute to Cummings that sounded to some listeners like an implicit rebuke of President Trump.

Obama never mentioned the president by name but seemed to draw a contrast between his successor and the congressman whom Trump denigrated during the summer.
