Quite a day we had in the District of Columbia. With more to ponder as President Donald Trump was asked by a reporter about what lesson he learned from his impeachment. Trump offered his thoughts today.
“Lisa Murkowski earlier said that you shouldn’t have gotten involved with the Roger Stone case, she said it’s just bad,” he was questioned. “Some Republicans have said they hoped you would learn a lesson from impeachment. What lesson did you learn from impeachment?”
Trump defiantly declared, “That the Democrats are crooked, they’ve got a lot of crooked things going, that they’re vicious, that they shouldn’t have brought impeachment and that my poll numbers are 10 points higher because of fake news like NBC, which reports that news very inaccurately, probably more inaccurately than CNN if that’s possible.”
The president also weighed in on the Republican primary results in New Hampshire Tuesday night:
“Last night, as you know, we had a very interesting election, and from the standpoint of the Republican Party and myself, but from the standpoint of the Republican Party, it was a tremendous success,” Trump told. “I got more votes than any incumbent President in many decades. That includes a lot of Presidents. And it was really incredible — the love in New Hampshire.”
Plus expressed, “And, by the way, we did the same thing in Iowa, and we were actually able to quickly count our votes. We knew within minutes after the poll how many votes we had, unlike the Democrats.” While adding, “So we had a tremendous success in Iowa. And last night, we had a tremendous — a very powerful success in New Hampshire. So it was a great honor.”
“But setting that record in both states was terrific, and now we’re off to some areas that I like very much: Nevada, you look at that; South Carolina, you look at that,” he announced.
“And I think we’re going to do very well there. Probably setting up a major rally in South Carolina. We already have one in Nevada. So we’ll be in those two locations, and we’ll be at a few others also. But it’s been incredible.”
In addition, he was queried on the Democratic primary race.
A journalist posed to him, “Who is the Democratic front-runner, sir?” Trump proclaimed, “That’s a good question,” Along with, “I would say Bernie looks like he’s doing very well.”
Further telling, “I think people like his message. He’s got energy. His people have energy. But they like his message.”
And concluded, “But a lot of people don’t like that particular message. But there is a group that probably agrees with it. And, you know, whoever it is, we’ll take them on. But it would certainly seem that Bernie Sanders has the advantage right now.”
Safe to say that we won’t be seeing any mended fences anytime soon.
