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!”

Appearing on the Fox Business channel with host Maria Bartiromo, Sen.

Complaining that the controversial Steele dossier was based on " a bunch of bar-talk and hearsay," Graham said he plans to call -- at the very least -- McCabe and former FBI Director James Comey in to be grilled by his committee.

‘Kiss Florida goodbye’: Voto Latino head warns Democrats of coming 2020 debacle

Published

Appearing on MSNBC's "AM Joy," Voto Latino CEO María Teresa Kumar said Democrats should not count on taking Florida's 29 electoral votes in the upcoming 2020 presidential election if Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is the at the top of the ticket.

During a fairly contentious panel discussion on the viability of Sanders as a candidate due to self-identifying as a democratic socialist, Kumar claimed that would not play well Florida's Latino community.

"All I can think about when David [Corn] was unpacking it for us, we can all agree is you can kiss Florida goodbye," she explained. "I say that, Floridians -- Latinos that have fled socialism, they have fled and they are in Florida and they have sensibilities that are different from the rest of the Latino community."

Published

During a panel discussion on CNN's State of the Union, contributor Bakari Sellers set fellow panelist Rick Santorum straight after he tried to claim that Donald Trump doesn't take far-right positions.

Following a discussion on Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada caucus win, Santorum tried to note the major differences between Trump and Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Responding to conservative commentator Linda Chavez who called both Sanders and Trump "two angry people," Santorum remarked, "I wanted to take issue with what Linda said: two angry folks representing the extremes, and I would agree with that, with Bernie Sanders, and he is representing, no question, the extreme of the Democratic Party and he says that he is a socialist and he is angry, I agree."
