Trump sizes up the GOP 2020 field on Twitter: ‘I should be able to take them’

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday to bully his Republican challengers for the 2020 nomination.

“Can you believe it? I’m at 94% approval in the Republican Party, and have Three Stooges running against me,” Trump complained, citing a comedy troupe who stopped performing almost half a century ago.

“One is ‘Mr. Appalachian Trail’ who was actually in Argentina for bad reasons,” he said, referring to former Gov. Mark Sanford (R-SC).

“Another is a one-time bad Congressman from Illinois who lost in his second term by a landslide, then failed in radio,” he said of Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL).

“The third is a man who couldn’t stand up straight while receiving an award,” Trump wrote.

“I should be able to take them!” he predicted.

Maddow recounted the process complaints by Republicans -- each of which has disappeared.

"After going through all of that, they now have unveiled a new objection as to why President Trump cannot actually be subject to this impeachment proceeding, a new noble stand they're taking for fairness and the American way -- they have rolled it out with our friends at the Fox News channel," Maddow said.

She played a clip of former GOP Speaker Newt Gingrich on Fox News.

Everyone is baffled by Trump’s rambling rant about flushing toilets ’10 times, 15 times’

Published

on

Another day, another truly baffling series of words coming from President Donald Trump’s mouth.

Speaking at a White House meeting on Friday about small business and regulation, Trump went on one of his trademark riffs, touching on a number of subjects with the clarity of a muddy puddle. He seemed to be referring to a series of complaints that have been raised over the years about various consumer product regulations (a favorite topic of Republican Sen.
