Here are the 5 wildest moments from Trump’s furious Rose Garden rant about Mueller and Pelosi

Published

on

President Donald Trump delivered an angry and defensive rant in the White House Rose Garden on Wednesday in which he lashed out at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who earlier in the day accused him of engaging in a “coverup.”

The president often swung wildly from one grievance to another, and he regularly made baseless claims about supposed “crimes” that were committed by Democrats trying to undermine his presidency.

Here are the five craziest moments from Trump’s Rose Garden rant.

1.) Trump cancels all plans to work on rebuilding American infrastructure until Democrats agree to stop investigating him.

Trump told reporters that he was putting off all talks on infrastructure unless Democrats stop probing his administration.

“You can’t do it under these circumstances,” the president complained. “So get these phony investigations over with.”

2.) Trump scolds reporters for their work documenting special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

The president alleged without presenting any evidence that his political opponents had tried to set him up to collude with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential election, and he attacked reporters for not repeating his wild assertions as fact.

“The crime was committed on the other side!” the president fumed. “This whole thing was a takedown attempt at the President of the United States. And all of you should be ashamed for the way you reported it!”

3.) Trump slams Nancy Pelosi for saying he’s engaged in a “coverup.”

The president seemed particularly angry that Pelosi accused him of trying to conceal information about his past actions from the American public.

“Instead of walking happily into a meeting, I walked into a meeting with people who said I had done a coverup,” Trump said. “I don’t do coverups.”

In fact, Trump’s personal attorney last year pleaded guilty to making an illegal campaign contribution under Trump’s instructions to cover up his past affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.

4.) Trump regularly refers to himself in the third person while trying to discredit the Mueller investigation.

“They hated President Trump,” Trump said of Mueller’s team of prosecutors. “They hated him, with a passion.”

5.) Trump freaks out about Democrats even discussing impeachment.

Although Speaker Pelosi is still holding the line against firing up impeachment hearings, Trump grew furious at the idea that the word was even being discussed.

“All of a sudden I hear last night that they’re going to have another meeting about the ‘I-word,'” Trump said, referring to impeachment. “The ‘I-word!’ Can you imagine? I don’t speak to Russians about campaigns! It’s a hoax! The greatest hoax in history!”

‘The wheels are coming off’: MSNBC panel says Trump told his chief of staff to ‘walk the plank’

Published

on

Two MSNBC anchors discussed Thursday's whirlwind day of breaking news in scandals involving President Donald Trump.

The host of "The Rachel Maddow Show" joined Brian Williams on "The 11th Hour" to discuss Trump holding the G7 Summit at his Trump National Doral Miami golf course and the White House acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, confessing that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine -- before attempting to walk back his confession.

"Did things change today, do you think?" Williams asked.

"I do feel like the wheels are coming off," Maddow said.

"For the Energy Secretary [Rick Perry] to resign, you've had two cabinet secretaries resign during the impeachment proceedings already, one of whom, the current one resigning tonight, the Energy Secretary, does appear to be involved in the scheme, at least on a couple of different levels. We have got the White House Chief of Staff who was sent out today, not only to make the, 'Yes, it was quid pro quo. Yes, we did it. What are you going to make of it?' article -- which was bracing, but then to take it back, simultaneously announcing this self-dealing, which is something more blatant than we’ve ever seen from any president in U.S. history," she explained.

Trump impersonated a CNN anchor — and a US president — during epic meltdown at Texas speech

Published

on

President Donald Trump offered multiple impersonations during a campaign rally in Dallas, Texas on Thursday.

Trump showed the crowd his impersonation of a president of the United States -- and a CNN anchor.

"No guns. No religion. No oil. No natural gas," Trump said. "Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas under those circumstances. Couldn’t do it."

In fact, Abraham Lincoln could not win Texas when he ran for president as the state refused to print any ballots with his name.

He then showed the audience two impersonations as part of his 87-minute speech.

"I used it to say, I can be more presidential. Look," Trump said, as he shuffled awkwardly on stage.
