Trump Hails Acquittal and Lashes Out at His ‘Evil’ and ‘Corrupt’ Opponents
As President Trump renewed his attacks on Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats, his press secretary threatened payback against them.
He called Ms. Pelosi “a horrible person,” Mr. Romney “a failed presidential candidate” who used “religion as a crutch” and Representative Adam B. Schiff, Democrat of California and the lead House manager, a “corrupt politician.”
Without naming them, Mr. Trump singled out Mr. Romney and Ms. Pelosi. “I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong,” Mr. Trump said of Mr. Romney. Then, referring to Ms. Pelosi, he said, “Nor do I like people who say, ‘I pray for you,’ when they know that’s not so.”
予想どおり、反省の言はみじんもなく、逆切れ。自分を弾劾した民主党のペロシ、シフなどを”evil and corrupt,”と言い放ちました。自分が一番evil and corruptなのに。昨日、自分の信仰と信念に基づいてトランプに有罪投票を投じ、感動的なスピーチをしたロムニーについても、その信仰は言い訳だと切り捨て、果てはバイデン大統領候補に対する疑惑調査をはじめると言いだす始末。いやはや、この人の異常さには限りがありません。
Mr. Trump’s vituperative performance on Thursday was the diametrical opposite of how President Bill Clinton responded to his own acquittal after a Senate impeachment trial in 1999. On the day he was cleared of charges of perjury and obstruction of justice, Mr. Clinton appeared alone in the Rose Garden, said he was “profoundly sorry” and called for “reconciliation and renewal.”

Please tell me why in our so called civilized country so many people love this man’s vicious speech. Is it because he says what they always wanted to say, that he is bellowing out their own hatreds and vindictiveness? Is it any wonder that we can not speak to each other as so many feel this way.
And every time we might want to talk to each other and share our differences in a civilized manner this man stirs up the witches brew of hate speech. Trump seems to feed on this hatred. it is the way he runs his administration and wins elections and we are all exhausted by it and yearn for a place beyond this 24/7 hate.
