President Trump welcomed the Louisiana State University (LSU) football team to the White House on Friday to celebrate the Tigers’ victory in the College Football Playoff national championship earlier this week.
As part of his exchange with team members, Trump referred to himself as a “son of a bitch” after he asked the team if they could believe Democrats are trying to impeach such a “good” president.
“We’ll take pictures behind the Resolute Desk,” Trump said, inviting the team into the Oval Office. “It’s been there a long time — a lot of presidents, some good, some not so good.”
“But you’ve got a good one now, even though they’re trying to impeach the son of a bitch. Can you believe that?” Trump said. “We’ve got the greatest economy we’ve ever had, Joe.”
“We’ve got the greatest military. We rebuilt it. We took out those terrorists like your football team would have taken out those terrorists, right?” Trump continued, an apparent reference to recent U.S. operations against ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.
