President* Donald Trump is infamous for a lot of reasons, but his public speeches are surely near the top of the list. From his Presidential bid announcement, through his ridiculous campaign rallies, to the State of the Union addresses and Presidential press conferences, Trump rarely seems more unhinged this side of Twitter than on a stage with a microphone.
All that just went to a new level as Trump gave the longest speech (2 Hours) of his presidency at the CPAC, saying, among many other insane things, that the Mueller investigation is “bullshit”:
Slate reports on the speech more:
During the speech, Trump attacked the “collusion delusion,” referring to Robert Mueller’s investigation. Trump said that he was being “sarcastic” and “having fun” during his campaign when he told Russia to hack Hillary Clinton’s emails. “I’ve learned with the fake news, if you tell a joke, if you are sarcastic, if you’re having fun with the audience, if you are on live television with millions of people and 25,000 people in an arena, and if you say something like ‘Russia, please, if you can, get us Hillary Clinton’s emails! Please, Russia, please! Please get us the emails! Please!’” Trump said.
Trump also went on to mock former attorney general, Jeff Sessions, and former FBI Director James Comey, who he says is Mueller’s “best friend.” “We’re waiting for a report by people who weren’t elected,” Trump said. “All of a sudden, they’re trying to take you out with bullshit.”
Trump also attacked Democrats, focusing in part on the Green New Deal, saying: “Nothing is more extreme than the Democrats’ plan to completely take over American energy and completely destroy America’s economy through their new $100 trillion Green New Deal”. Trump said was like a “high school term paper written by a poor student.”
Trump also threatened to issue an executive order that guarantees free speech at colleges and universities, then warned that institutions would be risking federal money if they didn’t comply.
This man in clearly terrified and unfit to hold the office of President of the United States. It becomes clearer every time he opens his mouth or logs into Twitter.
