President Donald Trump slammed “do-nothing” Democrats, “dishonorable” media reporters and “pathetic” Beto while speaking Friday evening at a blockbuster rally in Tupelo, Mississippi.
Of congressional Democrats, he said they’ve “gone completely insane” and have become obsessed with both transforming America into a country “you would not recognize,” and rolling back the results of the 2016 presidential election.
“America is winning again, and America is all over the world respected again. It’s about time!” he said. “But while we’re creating jobs and killing terrorists, the Democrat Party has gone completely insane. The radical left is determined to transform America into a country you would not recognize. …”
Including by “plotting to overthrow the election since the moment I won” — first via the Russia collusion delusion hoax and now via debunked claims that he’d tried to use a quid pro quo offer to force a foreign leader to investigate one of his 2020 election rivals.
“Yesterday’s vote by the radical Democrats is an attack on democracy itself,” he added, referring to the vote Thursday by the Democrat-led House to make their impeachment inquiry into him official.

The president likewise pulled no punches when excoriating the partisan Democrat media, whom he described as “the most dishonorable people almost on Earth.”
“Nineteen minutes after I took the oath of office, the horrible newspaper — the fake, fake, fake Washington Post — declared the campaign to impeach President Trump has just begun. At least they gave us 90 minutes,” he said.
“[T]hey’re the most dishonorable people almost on Earth,” he added later, going on to cite example after example of ostensibly non-biased outlets like The Washington Post and The New York Times “reporting” the news in disgustingly biased ways.
“The Washington Post, The New York Times — I keep trying to figure out who’s worse, and you know one day it’s the Times, one day it’s the Post,” he said. “It’s like they’re trying to top each other. It’s so phony. In my opinion, it’s virtually corrupt. You never have a good story.”
“I mean even with when we got al-Baghdadi, The Washington Post had a story that he was like a great religious cleric. Where did that come from? The other thing, if Obama would have done it … if I were a Democrat, they’d be talking about that story for weeks. With me, they actually played it down.”
The Washington Post also pushed back on Trump’s assertion that al-Baghdadi died like a coward.

The president saved his toughest criticism for Beto O’Rourke, who formally dropped out of the 2020 presidential election in an announcement late Friday.
“Did you hear, Beto, that poor bastard, poor, pathetic guy,” Trump said. “He was pathetic. Remember the arms are flailing? Remember that? … I used to watch him, and when he came on to the really big stage, this crazy stage, I noticed he was flailing with the arms and he was standing on tables and he was standing on countertops, I said: Does he ever like stand on the floor and speak?”
“And I said what the hell is he doing? What is he on? And you remember, he made the statement that he was born for this. Anybody that says he was born for this — they’re in trouble. You know, I used to have guys come into my office, ‘sir, I’m the greatest salesman. Nobody can sell.’ You know the truth is anybody that says they’re great salesmen, usually they’re not a very good salesman.”
He added that O’Rourke was a “nasty” guy, as evidenced by his authoritarian tendencies.
“Beto was nasty. … He came out of Texas a very hot political property, and he went back as cold as you can be, so he was a nasty guy,” the president said. “But he had a couple of policies that don’t work well in the state of Texas. He was against religion. He was against you having a gun and he was against oil. So you come from Texas, you don’t like religion, you don’t like oil and you don’t have guns. I don’t know, that’s not a good combination in the state of Texas.”
