President Trump spoke at the 37th Annual National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service Tuesday. At one point, he invited the family of Officer Miosotis Familia on stage. She was the 48-year-old NYPD officer who was fatally shot while sitting in her marked police vehicle in the Bronx last year.
“We are honored to be joined today by the family of detective Miosotis Familia,” Trump said. “New York police department, close to my heart. Come on. Can you open those Gates, please?”
Officer Familia’s 90-year-old mother came on stage, and the pictures are making me so weepy.

Can you even stand it?!
“I promised I wouldn’t tell you, she’s 90 years old,” Trump said.“But she’s really something. You look like 55 maybe? I tell you what, you got up those stairs better than I did.”
And better than Hillary too.
“You’re representing something so important,” Trump said to Familia’s family. “So she’s right now, right there and she’s looking down and she’s so proud of you. She’s so proud of you.”
I’m not crying, YOU’RE crying.
OK OK OK. We’re all crying.
