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!”

Trump’s attacks on Biden’s mental fitness just draw attention to his own problems: Joy Reid panel

Published

on

MSNBC host Joy Reid gave some helpful advice to President Donald Trump and his children, who frequently attack former Vice President Joe Biden for his mental health: It makes you look worse.

Speaking to her closing Wednesday panel with Jason Johnson and Howard Fineman, Reid showed a super-cut of Trump's knack for getting words wrong, not knowing how to pronounce simple things, slurring his words, stumbling down the stairs, not knowing where to go, dragging his feet and more.

"Well, you know, my pretext for all my students this fall will be: person, woman, man, camera, tv, and if they can do that, I know they're at least as smart as the president," joked Johnson. "Here's the thing. Joe Biden demonstrated that he literally can ride a bike and do something else at the same time. Like, I have always thought the argument that Joe Biden has lost a step or has some sort of mental deficiency was a complete lie. It's Republicans just projecting. What's important to remember is that no matter how much they spout this nonsense, every single time Donald Trump opens his mouth, he looks worse. There is nothing Joe Biden can say that is more foolish or incoherent than Donald Trump in the middle of a substantive interview."

Congresswoman criticizes Republican press guy for claim Black folks don’t care about Kamala Harris: Does he know any?

Published

on

Rep. Karen Bass (D-CA) hilariously mocked former press secretary Ari Fleischer, who worked for former President George W. Bush's White House. Fleischer claimed Black people won't be that excited about Sen. Kamala Harris on the ticket.

"She's just not that historically exciting to African-Americans," said Fleischer speaking to Laura Ingraham during a Fox News appearance after the announcement.

During a conversation with MSNBC's Joy Reid, the host called Fleischer "a sort of a bygone era Republican voice" and asked Bass to listen to his comments.

"I wonder how many African-Americans," asked Bass, chuckling.
