President Donald Trump unleashed a profanity-laden rant attacking the House Democrats’ impeachment investigation.
Trump claimed Americans consider the ongoing impeachment proceedings “bullshit” to raucous cheers from his supporters at a rally in Sunrise, Florida, on Tuesday.
He compared the ongoing impeachment investigation into a July 25 phone call he had with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“The radical Left Democrats are trying to rip our nation apart. First, it was the Russia hoax, total hoax,” Trump said. “The Mueller deal, you member that mess? They had nothing. Two years they spent, $45 million, and the real cost is many times that number.”
“Now, the same maniacs are pushing the deranged,” Trump said. “They’re pushing that impeachment witch hunt, and a lot of bad things are happening to them. You see what is happening in the polls?”
He added: “A lot of people said, ‘that’s really bullshit.'”
The attack brought loud applause and cheers for nearly 30 seconds while sporadic chants of “bullshit, bullshit” broke out among the crowd, which included many young children.
