President Donald Trump offered rally goers a perfect solution for finally getting an investigation into Hillary Clinton’s many scandals.
The president suggested he should nominate the failed 2016 Democratic candidate to the Supreme Court.
Of course, Trump was only joking – one hopes – as he spoke at a Texas rally on Monday supporting Sen. Ted Cruz.
“If you want the fake news media to finally investigate, by the way, by the way …,” Trump began, pausing as the crowd chanted “CNN sucks.”
“Don’t worry, I don’t like them either. But look at this. Look. Just look. Here we are. We are doing a rally for Ted. It’s great. We have a lot of people. Look how many media — this is like the Academy Awards which actually has gone down the tubes. I think we do much better. Look how many. Look at them.”
“Do you recognize many of those happy faces back there? I know every one of them. I know every one of them, and 15 percent of them are great,” he said.
“But if you want the fake news to finally investigate Hillary Clinton, we will just have …” Trump continued. “So if you want them to investigate, we will just have to nominate Hillary Clinton to the United States Supreme Court. How do you like that idea?”

The audience was pretty clear that was not an idea they would approve, booing loudly.
“Let’s see how she does. If Judge Kavanaugh had to go through what he went through,” Trump added, referring to the contentious confirmation hearings over his Supreme Court pick.

“He is a fine man. Can you imagine Hillary up there? That would take three to four years of questions,” Trump said, as the crowd broke into laughter.
An investigation where Clinton’s past would be under scrutiny like Kavanaugh’s, digging into high school yearbooks and questioning former classmates? Trump’s supporters completely get his sense of humor, while the left is forever in a state of perpetual meltdown over his remarks.
Twitter users gave the idea a thumbs up.
LOVE IT! BAHAHAHA!
