He was such a force that will never be replicated. Rest in Power.

No not really. I think he got a divorce or had an affair but he was otherwise a remarkable person

JFC can you not? your first comment in a post about a civil rights hero who routinely called out trump is "is he problematic"?

Just devastating. Such a loss for our country. He was a force and a legend.

RIP. I hope his family was able to get closure with him before he passed.

I'm going to need all the disingenuous politicians/people who criticized Cummings and made his life harder to not post empty tweets about how they'll miss him because they didn't respect him when he was alive.

I kept thinking the same thing when I heard the news earlier. This is also how I feel about my co-workers.
