Wednesday at the White House, President Donald Trump took a question from a reporter and gave a very blunt answer when he was asked: “what lesson he had learned from his impeachment.”
The president took the opportunity to unload on Democrats and the media, calling them “crooked and vicious”.
“Lisa Murkowski earlier said that you shouldn’t have gotten involved with the Roger Stone case, she said it’s just bad,” a reporter informed President Trump.
“Some Republicans have said they hoped you would learn a lesson from impeachment. What lesson did you learn from impeachment?” the reporter then asked.
“That the Democrats are crooked, they’ve got a lot of crooked things going, that they’re vicious, that they shouldn’t have brought impeachment and that my poll numbers are 10 points higher because of fake news like NBC, which reports that news very inaccurately, probably more inaccurately than CNN if that’s possible,” President Trump directly stated.
The president also took a shot at MSNBC, referring to them as “MSDNC,” adding, “I think they are among the dishonest reporters of the news.”
Prior to the question, the president had weighed in on the results of and Republican primary in New Hampshire on Tuesday night.
“Last night, as you know, we had a very interesting election, and from the standpoint of the Republican Party and myself, but from the standpoint of the Republican Party, it was a tremendous success,” President Trump said.
“I got more votes than any incumbent President in many decades. That includes a lot of Presidents. And it was really incredible– the love in New Hampshire,” he added. (Video Below)
