Trump Recognizes His Congressional Defense Team In Well-Deserved Victory Lap

Trump acquitted
We’ve been going through this now for over three years.  It was evil.  It was corrupt.  It was dirty cops.  It was leakers and liars.  And this should never, ever happen to another President ever.  I don’t know that other Presidents would have been able to take it.  Some people said, no, they wouldn’t have.  But I can tell you, at a minimum, you have to focus on this because it can get away very quickly.  No matter who you have with you, it can get away very quickly.  It was a disgrace.

President Donald J. Trump, remarks to the Nation, February 6, 2020

President Trump took a well-deserved victory lap yesterday during which he did not spare the evil and corrupt:

So, I’ve always said they’re lousy politicians, but they do two things: They are vicious and mean.  Vicious.  These people are vicious.  Adam Schiff is a vicious, horrible person.  Nancy Pelosi is a horrible person.  And she wanted to impeach a long time ago.  When she said, “I pray for the President.  I pray for the…” — she doesn’t pray.  She may pray, but she prays for the opposite.  (Laughter.)  But I doubt she prays at all.

While we agree with the President that Democrats are both vicious and mean, we want to focus on the Republicans and conservatives who were the leaders of the effort to save the Trump presidency and the MAGA agenda.

The first to earn the President’s encomium was Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. We have not been fans of McConnell and stand by our view that he is no movement conservative, but in this President Trump was absolutely right: “And he [McConnell] understood, rightfully, that this was crooked politics.  This was crooked politics.”

And after that the President ran through a long list of those who, unlike Mitt Romney, stood for the Constitution:

Bill Cassidy, Senator.  Stand up, Bill.  What a guy.

Mike Braun, you have done some great job.  Thank you very much.  (Applause.) Tough.  Tough.  Thank you.

Chuck Grassley — he’s looking at Comey: “Well, you tell me, what did you say?”  (Laughter.)  Now, he wasn’t being rough.  That was just the way he talked.  (Laughter.)  And that was when Comey — I think that was when Comey announced that he was leaking, lying, and everything else, right?  He choked because he never heard anybody talk like that.

And one of the greatest supporters on the impeachment hoax was Josh Hawley.  He was incensed actually; I watched it.  He was incensed at what they were doing and what they were saying.

We can say that Mike Lee is, by far, the most popular senator from the state.  But you’ve done a fantastic job, Mike, in many ways.  In many ways.

And she’s been so supportive, and she’s been downright nasty and mean about the unfairness to the President.  And [Senator from Georgia] Kelly Loeffler, I appreciate very much.  Thank you.

I have to start with — I have to start with Kevin [McCarthy].  Man, did you do a job.  Lucky you’re there.  Lucky you’re there because it wouldn’t have worked out.  If you don’t have the right people — I’ll tell you, Kevin McCarthy has done an incredible job.

Kelly Armstrong, North Dakota.  Kelly, thank you.  Great job.  (Applause.)  Great job.

Jim Banks of Indiana.  Jim, thank you.  Great job.  (Applause.)

Andy Biggs.  Where is Andy?  Boy, oh, boy, Andy.  He got — (applause) — there’s a guy.  He’s tough. 

Bradley Byrne, Alabama.  What a great place.  (Applause.)  Thank you, Bradley.

Doug Collins — where is he?  Where is Doug?  (Applause.)  You have been so great.  Thank you very much, Doug.  Thank you very much.  Thank you.  Really amazing job.

He’s solid as a rock and he’s a friend of mine.  Matt Gaetz.  Matt?  (Applause.)  Thank you, Matt.  Thank you.  Great job.

And I walked up with Jim, and it’s like I didn’t exist.  (Laughter.)  Those wrestlers, they grabbed him.  They love Jim Jordan, and we love you too because you are some warrior. 

But you were so incredible, representing — I don’t say “me” — representing our country and getting it out of this impeachment hoax.  What you did was incredible. So, Debbie, please stand up.  Debbie Lesko

Mark, I want to thank you very much.  Fantastic job. Thank you very much.  Mark Meadows.

Mike Johnson of Louisiana.  Where’s Mike?  Central casting.  What a job.  You can represent me anytime.  (Applause.)  You can represent me anytime.  Thank you.  What a job you’ve done.  Thank you, Mike.

This was the first guy.  He came out of nowhere.  He’s saying, “These people are corrupt.”  He’s still saying it.  And he was unbelievable. Devin Nunes.  He was unbelievable.  Unbelievable.

Scott Perry of Pennsylvania.  Scott, thank you.  (Applause.)  Thank you, Scott.  Really great.  And you’re doing very well over there, by the way.  Just saw your numbers.

John Ratcliffe, right?  But I have to tell you, if we’re doing a remake of Perry Mason, the man I get — there’s nobody in Hollywood like this — John Ratcliffe, right? 

What a great — what a group.  I mean, what a group.  I got lucky.  I got lucky because you need the right people.  If I had the wrong people there, he — maybe a different story.  Maybe we’d be celebrating something else.  But I really want to thank you, Steve Scalise.

And, Elise [Stefanik NY-21], you — I just read this story; she’s the most incredible — what’s going on with you, Elise.  So I even said — you know, I was up campaigning for her, helping her.  But I thought, “She looks good.  She looks like good talent.”  But did I not realize, when she opens that mouth, you were killing them, Elise.  (Laughter.)  You were killing them.  (Applause.)

Michael Turner, you can represent me anytime.  Where’s Michael?  Where is he?  (Applause.)  Or you can represent me.  How good were you?  There’s another — there’s another Perry Mason type, I think.  Right?  What do you think, John?  But, Michael, you were fantastic and we appreciate it.

Brad Wenstrup.  Where’s Brad?  Brad.  (Applause.)  Great, great job.  This is a big day for lawyers.  You notice only the lawyers stayed?  All the lawyers stayed behind.

Lee Zeldin.  How good are you?  How good are you?  (Applause.)  Man.

Louie [Gohmert TX-1] has been amazing.  He’s a tough guy.  He’s a smart guy.  He’s streetwise like crazy.  We love Texas, and we’re with you all the way, Louie.  We’re with you all the way.  Thank you very much.
