Trump Takes Victory Lap at White House Event

Trump Takes Victory Lap at White House Event

The Senate acquitted him on two charges.

President Donald Trump said he “went through hell” during the entire impeachment process, which began last fall.

The Senate acquitted Trump on two charges: abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) voted yes on the first charge, but the final vote was 52-48.

The Senate voted on party lines on the second charge, 53-47.

Trump simply held up The Washington Post with the headling “Trump Acquitted.”

Trump reminded the world that the Democrats have openly targeted him before his 2017 inauguration.

From Fox News:

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—.”

As he did earlier Thursday at a prayer breakfast, Trump brandished a copy of Thursday’s Washington Post with a blaring headline: “Trump acquitted.”

Trump joked that he may frame The Washington Post paper with the headline because it’s the “only good headline” the paper has ever given him.

Would it shock anyone if he did frame it? I bet he does. I think he should!

This is going to be good. Hope he announces that he is declassifying documents, announcing new investigations and instructs AG Barr to direct IG Horowitz to issue a public preliminary report.

    I hope that you’re right. So far, all I’ve seen is the same old game of delay and distract.

    Fifth columnists tried under color of law to overthrow the legitimately elected government of the United States — and they are still trying. So far, only their victims have been punished.

    We’ve heard “wait until the IG report,” “wait until Durham,” and now it will be “wait until after the next election.” The deep state and fake news media want us to forget the treason and think only about the horse race of the coming election. If we are that easily manipulated, then America really is finished, and we can get on with being a higher-tech version of East Germany.

      The wind is coming out of my sails as I am listening. I hope this is just the first Act. I did not check the WH for a playbill.

    smh… I wanted blood on the walls and carpet. So disappointed.

      My2centshere in reply to Paul In Sweden. | February 6, 2020 at 1:35 pm

      He only needs a little bit of his anger to come out. Let the left have the hatred. It’s all they have. He’s playing the long game.

        Another Voice in reply to My2centshere. | February 6, 2020 at 3:09 pm

        I find it amusing and a statement in of itself to see the newspaper Pres.Trump chose to headline his acquittal, “The Washington Post”

Yes, a hoax, a first-order forcing of [sociopolitical] climate change. Good for him. A lesser man would have kneeled.

JusticeDelivered | February 6, 2020 at 12:52 pm

I really think that “hoax” is the wrong term for this conspiracy to disrupt or roust the presidency. This is unacceptable, scalps need to be taken, those who planned or participated need to receive jail time, hopefully hard labor.

Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman Tom Perez on Thursday demanded state officials immediately recanvass the Iowa caucus vote amid fears that the delayed results could be inaccurate or inauthentic.

“Enough is enough. In light of the problems that have emerged in the implementation of the delegate selection plan and in order to assure public confidence in the results, I am calling on the Iowa Democratic Party to immediately begin a recanvass,” Perez tweeted.

    Whoa indeed! What’s your take? That the DNC doesn’t like the outcome and they want to jigger with the results for their preferred outcome?

      Paul In Sweden in reply to EOS. | February 6, 2020 at 1:16 pm

      This is a recipe for a rigged result. The DNC is going to go out into the field and come back with whatever vote they choose. No transparency.

        alaskabob in reply to Paul In Sweden. | February 6, 2020 at 1:27 pm

        They are taking their cue from Stalin in counting the votes. The Central Committee will validate the correct(ed) winner . This same voting method is being pushed here in Alaska for general elections. Oh joy.

          The app failure was a rigged result.

          Paul In Sweden in reply to alaskabob. | February 6, 2020 at 3:06 pm

          No doubt and The Des Moines Register Poll pullback was most probably BS too because it showed when published, Bernie way in the lead and Biden down at four or less. Not the desired result. What do Dems do in that case? Disk crash, data loss, irregularities, App problems, etc, etc, etc.

He thanked his family for sticking with him through all of it, that the investigations, impeachment weren’t part of the deal when he decided to run.

He said he expected to run, and then to work for the country, not have to run, and run and run again every week.

    There were fighters
    Biters and Irish dynamiters
    There was beer, gin
    Whiskey, wine and cake
    There were men in high positions
    There were Irish politicians
    And they all got drunk
    At Mitt Romney’s wake

No announcements on indictments, unsealing of classified info, or anything like that.

Just really going through the high profile folks that defended him.

Devin Nunes, Mark Meadows, Steve Scalise, Matt Gaetz, his lawyers, etc. Elise Stephanik.

The Friendly Grizzly | February 6, 2020 at 1:38 pm

I watched the NBC News feed. At the end, the announcer called it (loosely quoting) “an hour-long diatribe”’and other snide comments. They don’t hide their contempt at all.

    Paul In Sweden in reply to The Friendly Grizzly. | February 6, 2020 at 1:59 pm

    They are complicit. The MSM are co-conspirators in the Russiahoax, spygate, Ukrainegate and impeachment. They share the guilt with the Obama Administration, FBI, DOJ, CIA, NSA, State Dept. and others. They will never own up to their actions.

    I will admit, it could have been half the size and twice as good, but quite some time ago, we all wished we had a president who we knew what he was really thinking.

    And we got one. 🙂

    He spent most of the time saying thank you to the people that helped. He took the time to give them all a pat on the back, like a boss…

    I had hopes that he would have mentioned Alan Dershowitz. There was an opportunity to thank someone who wasn’t a supporter.

      Professor Dershowitz may want Trump not to recognize his efforts today… he still has incoming slings and arrows from liberals presently.

      But, yes! Dershowitz has been a stellar defender against Democrat attackers.

OleDirtyBarrister | February 6, 2020 at 2:06 pm

If one shoots at a king, he must kill the king.

The Dems took a shot and only struck themselves in the foot.

But is the new Teflon Don adept enough to finally purge all the Obama holdovers in the admin agencies?

Will he be daring enough to command each head of a cabinet level agency, administration, and commission to work on a new agency budget using zero-based budgeting and reducing personnel and cutting its budget by 10%?

It’s very scary a coup was almost successful, stopped by only 5 votes.

And a coup it was.

People involved have to pay with their freedom.

    Paul In Sweden in reply to | February 6, 2020 at 3:10 pm

    No, 20 votes. It would take a two-thirds majority in the Senate to impeach and remove the POTUS.

      Don’t tell me that if the vote were 51-X in favor of removal, that the Dems would resist beating that drum into splinters by November. As it is, I believe Mitt’s announcement of his vote scared a number of Dems out of casting acquittal votes, because the pressure from the DNC would have ramped up to unbearable levels had they given in to a brief flash of sanity in the hopes of holding their seats.

So, if they needed 66 votes, they came up what, 29 short?

BierceAmbrose | February 6, 2020 at 6:36 pm

I don’t understand the folks calling Mittens inconsistent for his vote. He’s advancing his party’s agenda again, just like in 2008.

The pens, PDJT! Where are the pens?!

Just learned something this morning.Why had I never heard of this before? The “Ben Franklin Effect”!

“Can you do me a favor?” was Franklin’s favorite conversation starter. It’s non-threatening, psychologically makes people invest in your friendship and tells people you are self-confident. When Trump uses it he gets impeached for corruption?

Trump should find opportunities to use this. For example: “Could everyone do me a favor? Could we now drop the impeachment nonsense?”
