Trump Celebrates Acquittal and says “It was all Bullsh*t”
After his State of the Union Address, President Donald Trump came out in a historic moment to thank his army of “great warriors” as he celebrated his acquittal from the impeachment trial and described his ordeal, in a press conference held at the White House’s East Room.
“It was all bullsh*t,” Trump quipped about the impeachment trial. He referred to the incident as the “Russia, Russia, Russia” hoax and mused if he should sue MI6 spy Christopher Steele for the “research” which gave the Federal officials surveillance of his campaign.
Trump described it as a celebration against the opposition who had fought to oust him from the White House.
“Today is the day to celebrate these great warriors, right? These are great warriors. They really fought hard for us,” Trump said in his speech, as he addresses the Cabinet members and staffers.
Some of his supporters that were present during the event were former Sen. Rick Santorum, Reps. Jim Jordan, Matt Gaetz, Mark Meadows, Elise Stefanik, Louis Gohmert, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Sens. Mitch McConnell as well as conservative supporters David Bossie and Brent Bozell.
He also honored the people behind his acquittal and praised his legal team for the trial’s success. “I call them friends because you develop friendships and relationships when you’re in battle and war.”
Trump then continued “Mitch McConnell, I want to tell you, you did a fantastic job,” he said, praising the Senate Majority Leader for outsmarting his opposition. This guy is great. He’s a tough guy to read… that’s what makes him good.”
The president also apologized to his family for letting them go through the difficult “phony rotten deal.”
“I want to apologize to my family for having them go through a phony rotten deal by some very evil and sick people,” Trump said, as the first lady joined him onstage.
“They stuck with me and I’m so glad I did it because we are making progress and we are doing things for our great people,” the president added.
Trump also lashed out against the opposition. “There were some who used religion as a crutch,” Trump called out Mitt Romney who had announced early last week that he had voted for Trump’s impeachment, and cited that the president was “guilty” from the charges.
He also described the mastermind behind the opposition, from House Oversight Chairman Adam Schiff as a “failed screenwriter,” to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as a “horrible person” as she tore the president’s speech in front of millions of Americans.
Most of all, the president used the celebration as a heavy jab against the Democrats as he cited the disastrous Iowa Caucus.
He told the crowd that the opposition “can’t count some simple votes, and yet they want to take over your health care system.”
Trump responded after Democrats claimed that he did not address issues concerning the health care system in his State of the Union Address.
Finally, Trump addressed the crowd by saying that “We’ve all been through a lot together. We went through hell, unfairly,” and the entire room applauded.
Before leaving, Trump left a promise of another victory in the 2020 elections. “These people have been stone-cold crazy, we beat them once and we’ll beat them again.”
