Trump Does Impeachment Victory Dance, Slams Democrats, Media as Liars

Posted on | February 7, 2020 | No Comments

Like he just won the Super Bowl:

President Trump, commanding a triumphant scene at the White House complete with the playing of “Hail to the Chief,” railed against what he called an “evil” impeachment process on Thursday hours after his historic acquittal in the Senate.
Greeted by thunderous applause and a standing ovation by his supporters, the president declared “we went through hell” but described the moment as a “celebration” — while maintaining as he did throughout the impeachment inquiry and trial that he “did nothing wrong.”
And on a day when he and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi were trading shots in deeply personal terms, Trump turned fire on those who prosecuted the case and other investigations against him. He called Pelosi and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff “horrible” and “vicious” people.
“It was evil. It was corrupt. It was dirty cops. It was leakers and liars. This should never, ever happen to another president, ever,” Trump said. “It was a disgrace.”
He detailed the timeline of investigations, remarking of the Russia probe: “It was all bulls—.”
And as he did earlier Thursday at a prayer breakfast, Trump brandished a copy of the day’s Washington Post with a blaring headline: “Trump acquitted.”
“We can take that home, honey. Maybe we’ll frame it,” he joked to first lady Melania Trump, saying that it was the “best” headline he’s ever received from the outlet.

 

When Trump called Pelosi a “horrible person,” do you think any white working-class “swing” voter in Michigan or Iowa disagreed? It cannot be repeated enough that Trump’s approval rating went up during this impeachment, which Democrats ought to see as a foreboding omen. Despite everything that the liberal media did to incite this impeachment — frankly, they’ve been working on it since Nov. 8, 2016 — the American people could still see through this partisan hoax. Guess which Democrat sees what’s coming down the road? James Carville:

Democratic strategist James Carville expressed his concerns as the Democratic primary race is officially underway, saying he’s “scared to death” of the direction his party is going.
Appearing on MSNBC, Carville began by pointing to the success Democrats had during the 2018 midterm elections and stressed that it “matters” who the candidates are and what the party chooses to talk about.
“I’m 75 years old, why am I here doing this? Because I’m scared to death, that’s why,” Carville exclaimed. “Let’s get relevant here … all the Sanders people are taking pictures wishing Jeremy Corbyn the best. … I don’t want to go down that path.” . ..
“We’ve got to decide what we want to be. Do we want to be an ideological cult? Or do we want to have a majoritarian instinct to be a majority party?” Carville continued. “What we need is power, you understand? That’s what this is about. Without power, you have nothing. You just have talking points.”
Carville . . . insisted that Democratic donors “will not give a popsicle to the DNC” with the current state of the 2020 field.

Trump Derangement Syndrome — a psychiatric disorder rooted in a refusal to accept the verdict of the 2016 election — has put the Democrats so badly off-balance they cannot recover their equilibrium.
