Trump Rips ‘Lunatics’ Dems Over Impeachment Inquiry, Tells Pelosi To ‘Go Back’ To San Francisco
President Donald Trump lashed out at House Democrats during a campaign rally in Lexington, Ky., Monday evening, calling them “lunatics” for launching an impeachment inquiry against him.
During his tirade, he singled out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying the Democratic leader needed to “go back” to her home district of San Francisco to clean up the “drugs” and “needles” in the streets.
“Nancy ought to stop wasting time, go back to her district in San Francisco, help the homeless, get rid of the drugs, get rid of the needles that are lying all over the street and all the things that are washing into the ocean through their storm sewer system,” Trump told the crowd.
“What’s happened in San Francisco and what’s happened to many other places run by the radical left Democrats, it’s unbelievable,” he continued, comparing Los Angeles to a “third-world city.”
Trump brought up impeachment several times throughout the evening and accused Democrats of plotting to “overthrow” the 2016 election and framed last week’s vote formalizing the impeachment inquiry as an attack on U.S. democracy.
“With last week’s vote, the far left has declared war on American democracy itself. These people are lunatics,” Trump said.
The president was campaigning in Kentucky for incumbent Republican Gov. Matt Bevin on the eve of the state’s gubernatorial elections.
