Trump Suggests President Johnson Is In Hell: ‘He’s Probably Looking Down — Or Looking Up’




President Trump on Tuesday night suggested that the late President Lyndon B. Johnson may be in hell.

Trump told his supporters during a campaign rally in Wisconsin that President Johnson was “probably looking down — or looking up” on America today.

The comment came while the president was defending a phone call he shared with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky last July that is at the heart of the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry.



“This is based on a perfect phone call. Did anybody read the transcript? It’s a perfect call. In fact, if you go back and look at Lyndon Johnson, all of ‘em, you know, Lyndon Johnson was sort of a tough guy. Can you imagine his phone calls?” he said at the rally in Milwaukee.

“He’s probably looking down — or looking up,” he added to some laughs from his supporters.

George Conway, a conservative attorney and husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, slammed Trump on Twitter:

Rep. Raja Krishnamoorthi (D-Ill.), who chairs the House Oversight and Reform Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy, also took aim at Trump over the remark.

“We can listen to recordings of many of LBJ’s calls and, hard as many of them can be to listen to now for many reasons, he didn’t ask foreign governments to intervene in our elections in exchange for congressionally authorized military aid.”
