President Donald Trump tore down former FBI and Justice Department officials, expressed unabashed support for Saudi Arabia and took credit for plans to send immigrants into sanctuary cities in an unrestrained rally in Wisconsin on Saturday night.
The nearly hour-and-a-half-long campaign rally was scheduled at the same time the 2019 White House Correspondents dinner, which the Trump administration boycotted.
Trump opened the rally with condolences to the deadly synagogue shooting in California from earlier in the day. Then he quickly went into his usual insults of his Democratic opponents, Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders, and former Vice President Joe Biden, whom he called “Pocahontas,” “Crazy Bernie” and “Sleepy Joe” respectively.
Trump also appeared to take aim at the federal intelligence community, calling the ousted FBI and Justice Department officials “scum.”
The rally, which took place in Green Bay, was the first rally Trump has held since the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into the president, Russia and the Trump campaign were made public.
I’ll bet the tooth-to-tattoo ratio at this rally was very low.
