"It’s, I think, a distraction from a great man and his legacy at a time when there’s so much to be said about that and to help people even more fully appreciate that. And, on a personal level, I think it’s a bit of a hurtful distraction for a family that’s mourning," Eugene Scalia said on Laura Ingraham's radio show.
Scalia said Wednesday that his father "would have been the first to tell you ... that we’re from dust, we return to dust, your life could be taken from you at any instant."
"He was a month shy of 80 years old. He lived this incredibly full and active life, but I knew, and he knew, that he was at a place in life where he could be taken from this world at any time," Eugene Scalia continued.
"Our family just has no doubt he died of natural causes. And we accept that. We’re praying for him. We ask others to accept that and pray for him," he added.
It's shameful that he should even have to take time out to dignify such nonsense, but this is Trump's world now, and he just lives in it.
