President Donald Trump singled out the Democrats chairing the Intelligence and Judicial committees investigating him during a combative rally for his reelection campaign in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“And this group of major losers did not just ruthlessly attack me, my family and everyone who questioned their lies, they tried to divide our country, to poison the national debate and to tear up the fabric of our great democracy — the greatest of anywhere in the world,” Trump charged.
“The did it all because they refused to accept the results of one of the greatest presidential elections — probably number one — in our history,” he told the crowd, many of whom were wearing red “Make America Great Again” hats.
“Many, many people were badly hurt by this scam, but more importantly, our country was hurt,” he continued. “Our country was hurt.”
Trump then went personal.
“And they’re on artificial respirators right now — they’re getting mouth-to-mouth resuscitation,” he imagined.
“Little pencil neck Adam Schiff — he’s got the smallest, thinnest neck I’ve ever seen,” he said of the California Democrat who leads the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
“He is not a long ball hitter,” Trump continued.
“Sick, sick, these are sick people,” Trump said as he pointed at his head.
“There has to be accountability because it’s all lies — and they know it’s lies,” Trump argued, without evidence.
Trump then attacked Judiciary Committee Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) before repeating, “these people are sick.”
Morning Joe’s Mika rains hell on ‘pathetic’ Trump for White House smear campaign against Dr Fauci
'MSNBC "Morning Joe" host Mika Brzezinski went off on an extended diatribe on Donald Trump and the White House for attempts to smear the reputation of Dr. Anthony Fauci based upon a report from NBC News.
According to the NBC report, "The White House is seeking to discredit Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country's leading infectious disease expert, as President Donald Trump works to marginalize him and his dire warnings about the shortcomings of the U.S. coronavirus response."
Using that as a jumping-off point, the "Morning Joe" host called the president "pathetic," and blamed the massive and resurgent spread of the coronavirus solely on the president's bungling of the government's response from day one.
