On Wednesday morning, Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) collapsed during a 5K charity race in Washington, D.C. He was reportedly administered CPR and taken away in an ambulance. Fortunately, Tillis was revived after being unconscious, and reported to be breathing.

The 57-year-old senator tweeted out a photo with his team at the American Council of Life Insurers race just before he collapsed.

While most people responded with prayers and wishing the senator well, there were many Democrats who felt they needed to make a larger political point about the Republican effort to repeal and replace Obamacare and called his health event “karma.”

Luckily, Sen. Tillis tweeted out a video of him telling everyone he’s fine.

Whatever happened to Democrats living by the Michelle Obama mantra of “when they go low, we go high?” It’s become “when they collapse, we go even lower.”

When politics consume you, you begin to lose your humanity and empathy for others. Using the potentially serious medical event of a Republican senator as a platform to boast leftist views isn’t how political discourse should be.

Do better, America.
