Trump Yells ‘I Always Want Corruption’ In Barely Coherent Rant On Fox News
During an interview on Fox News on Friday, President Donald Trump hurled incendiary insults at his political rivals, spread a slew of conspiracy theories while rejecting verifiable facts and bizarrely declared that he “always want corruption.”
Speaking with the hosts of “Fox and Friends,” Trump sought to undermine the public impeachment hearings against him by slamming House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff as a “sick puppy” and a “nut job”.
“He’s sick, there’s something wrong with him,” Trump said.
He then attacked several other Democratic leaders – calling US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “Crazy Nancy Pelosi” and said former Vice President Joe Biden was mentally “off”, adding: “I don’t know if Joe can make it mentally” through the 2020 campaign trail.
The president appeared to divert from several lines of questioning and at times misspoke, at one point saying: “I do want, always, corruption.”
He added: “I say that to anybody!”
Trump is accused of withholding nearly $400m of crucial military aid to Ukraine as his top advisers demanded Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announce investigations into the former vice president, whose son, Hunter Biden.
The then said that he would like Hunter Biden to appear, however, he added that he would most prefer to see the House Intelligence chairman get called to testify.
“I want to see Adam Schiff testify about the whistleblower – who’s a fake whistleblower,” he said. “The one I want to testify most is Shifty Schiff.”
The president then said he also wanted to see the whistleblower — whose complaint about a 25 July phone call with his Ukrainian counterpart sparked the impeachment inquiry — to testify in a Senate trial.
Trump literally just said On #FoxandFriends: "I do want always corruption."
