Charlie Gard

Rest in peace, Charlie Gard.

On Friday, the parents of the 11-month-old baby who stole everyone's hearts (even Donald Trump's) while battling a rare degenerative disorder — that required machines to keep him alive — announced their son had passed away.

Charlie Gard's Mother Says Doctors Think There's A 10% Chance He Can Be Saved — Get The Latest!

In case you haven't been following the heartbreaking case of Charlie Gard, the U.K. infant is suffering from a rare degenerative disorder that requires machines to keep him alive.

Unfortunately, doctors say further treatment will only cause him to suffer more. Courts have already ruled the hospital can pull the plug, against the parents' wishes.

But the fight has continued, with forces as disparate as the Vatican and Donald Trump agreeing that Charlie should be able to get experimental treatment in the U.S.

Everyone in the States, including the POTUS, seem to be on board. New York-Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University Irving Medical Center stated it would gladly treat Charlie "provided that arrangements are made to safely transfer him to our facility, legal hurdles are cleared, and we receive emergency approval from the FDA for an experimental treatment as appropriate."

Obviously those "legal hurdles" are the big impediment at the moment. Thus far Great Ormond Street Hospital has refused to release the 11-month-old.

Charlie's mother Connie Yates appeared on Good Morning Britain on Friday to once again make the case that treatment was worth the risk. She said:

Oh, LiLo, noooooooo.

Earlier this week, Lindsay Lohan exposed herself as a Donald Trump supporter as she urged POTUS's critics to stop "bullying him" and to start "trusting him." Ugh.

The Trumpster won the A-lister's praise after he revealed the U.S. would be "delighted" to help a critically ill British baby, named Charlie Gard, who was deemed too sick to receive experimental medicine by the European Court of Human Rights. Huh.

Specifically, the Mean Girls actress responded to one Twitter user who shared a Breitbart article about Donnie's support of Charlie. The red-headed starlet noted:

Donald Trump Wades Into International Controversy With Tweet About Terminally Ill Infant — Is He Actually Trying To Help??

Donald Trump actually tweeted something nice for a change on Monday — and even that is mired in controversy thanks to literally everything else he's done.

In case you haven't followed the story of U.K. infant Charlie Gard, the 10-month-old suffers from a rare genetic disorder called mitochondrial depletion syndrome that keeps him from breathing and moving on his own. He's currently being kept alive by machines.

But doctors say there's nothing they can do to fix his declining condition, and that turning off the machines is the merciful thing to do as Charlie will only suffer more. And the courts agree.

His parents have been fighting, but last week the European Court Of Human Rights upheld a lower court ruling that "it was likely that Charlie would suffer significant harm if his present suffering was prolonged without any realistic prospect of improvement, and the experimental therapy would be of no effective benefit."

It's a heartbreaking case. Even the Pope weighed in, saying he prays Charlie will be treated "until the end" per the parents' wishes.

Charlie's parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, set up a GoFundMe to pay for an experimental treatment in the U.S. — one which Connie says has never been tried on his particular gene but has helped with a similar syndrome. So far they've raised an astounding $1.7 million.

That's where Donald Trump comes in. He tweeted on behalf of the U.S.:
