Florida rally crowd chants ‘bullsh-t!’ following Trump’s call on impeachment

Powered by Topple

President Donald Trump’s denouncement of the “bullsh**” impeachment efforts by Democrats fired up the crowd at his Florida rally.

The president sparked boos and then chants of “bullsh**!” after he called out the impeachment “witch hunt” being conducted against him by Democrats during his Tuesday night rally in Sunrise.

Trump accused “the radical left Democrats” of “trying to rip our nation apart,” reminding the crowd of the “Russia hoax” before condemning the House impeachment hearings which he said have created a negative effect for them in polls.

“Impeachment. Think of this, impeachment,” the president, who recently officially moved his residency from New York to Florida, said at his “homecoming rally” Tuesday night.

“A witch hunt, the same as before,” he continued after a collective boo from the crowd at the mention of the impeachment efforts by Democrats, launched after a whistleblower complaint alleging a quid pro quo attempt by Trump during a July phone call with the president of Ukraine.

“They’re pushing that impeachment witch hunt and a lot of bad things are happening to them,” Trump continued.

“Because you see what’s happening in the polls? Everybody said that’s really bullsh**!” he added as the crowd went wild, echoing his remarks with the chant.

“I don’t want to go on it too long, but all I’m saying is it’s a terrible hoax,” Trump said.

Public opinion appears to be swinging away from the House inquiry as many have begun to oppose the hearings and the general idea of impeaching the president, despite the hysteria by the left that the president’s conduct was so egregious he needs to be removed from office.

Opposition to impeachment has risen from 43.8 percent to 45.6 percent according to the FiveThirtyEight average of national polls which also showed that support for the effort by Democrats has dropped to 46.3 percent from 50.3 percent in mid-October. Only 41 percent of independents in the FiveThirtyEight average now support impeachment, a significant drop from the 47.7 percent in late October.

A new Hill-HarrisX poll released on Monday showed that even Democrats have begun to lose interest as the poll, taken just after the first public hearing, indicated that the number of Democrats who said they were following the impeachment inquiry fell 5 percentage points to 73 percent.

In more bad news for Democrats, a Rasmussen poll released earlier this month showed that 34 percent of black likely voters approve of Trump’s presidency, an increase from last year when it was in the 20s and a finding that lines up with an Emerson poll which showed 34.5 percent approval, as well as a drop in support for impeachment.

Despite the glaring indicators before them, Democrats seem intent on pursuing their impeachment efforts for the time being. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced this week that, following the panel’s hearings, House Democrats “are now preparing a report” for the House Judiciary Committee.

“As required under House Resolution 660, the Committees are now preparing a report summarizing the evidence we have found this far, which will be transmitted to the Judiciary Committee soon after Congress returns from the Thanksgiving recess,” Schiff wrote to Congress.
