Donald Trump called into Fox and Friends this morning to rant incoherently, attack impeachment hearing witnesses, and spread conspiracy theories.

One day after the wrap of the first phase of public impeachment hearings, President Donald Trump unloaded to Fox News, declaring he wants a Senate trial, pushing a debunked theory that Ukraine has a DNC server, and deeming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi “crazy as a bedbug.”

The expansive remarks by the president came during a roughly hour-long phone call to “Fox & Friends,” in an exercise co-host Brian Kilmeade dubbed “a stress release.”

“Frankly, I want a trial,” Trump said, while asserting that no evidence existed to warrant his removal from office and insisting there should “never be an impeachment.”

But if House lawmakers do send articles of impeachment to the Senate, Trump said he would like to see testimony by House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the leader of the Democratic inquiry.

“Well, there’s only one person I want more than ‘Where’s Hunter,’” Trump said, referring to former Vice President Joe Biden’s son.

“The one I want to testify most is ‘Shifty Schiff,’ and I want to find out why did he make up my statement?” Trump said. “He made up my statement, and I want to find that out. Why did ‘Shifty Schiff’ — who’s a crooked politician, he’s a corrupt politician — why did he make up my statement?”

Trump aslo sahred why he thought ambassador Marie Yovanovitch was a bad person. 

Trump’s almost hour-long rant was wild and hard to follow, and parts of it were even too much for his favorite hosts to follow. 

For the record Crowdstrike is not a Ukranian company, and it certainly does not have the DNC server.

Keep in mind folks that this is who at least 34% of the country wants to see remain in the White House. 

Update: I knew this was probably a lie.

Jesus, the man simply cannot stop himself!

    Lesley Stahl has been a familiar face on “60 Minutes” for nearly three decades, and she secured the first interview with then President-elect Trump after the 2016 election, which made headlines around the world. Stahl sits down with Walter to discuss Trump’s attacks on the press, the current impeachment hearings and how the Watergate scandal changed her career and the course of American history.

    Thank you Bob Woodward!

        After that hour of incoherent babbling he still has the nerve to insist that there’s no way David Holmes could have heard his voice through Sondland’s phone at the restaurant in Kyiv. He is completely insane. I am so sick of this shit. Our country can’t survive another four/five years of this nonsense.

          Pretty funny, trump claims he has WATCHED a lot of people making phones calls, may his problem is he didn’t LISTEN or he needs his hearing checked.

          One of the republicans yesterday torn into Holmes for listening in on the conversation, I don’t recall any republican having a problem with Sondland making the call from an outdoor restaurant on an unsecure phone in the first place.

    I couldn’t decide if the Fox phone-in was the act of a man who’s terrified of what comes next, or the act of a madman who thinks he’s managed to beat the rap yet again.

      It could actually be both.

    He wants the Bidens investigated, makes me wonder what crooked stuff donnie jr and eric are up to, since trump always projects.

    Also want to know, on what grounds Miss Lindsey is opening an investigation into the Bidens, this is Hillary’s emails and Benghazi all over again,

    I am beginning to think,since we know the republicans are already meeting in the WH in order to rig the impeachment trial, maybe Nancy should hold off and keep the investigation going until after the election. I am not sure what to think any longer, trump should be impeached but what is the point if the senate is going to acquit, even before they hear testimony.They are going to turn it into a mockery.Or is that exactly what this country needs in order to wake up?

    “Trump said on Fox and Friends, “A lot of it had to do with they say Ukraine. It’s very interesting, right? They have the server from the DNC, the Democratic National Committee. The FBI went in and they told them get out of here. We’re not giving it to you. They gave the server to Crowdstrike, or whatever it’s called, which is a country, a company owned by a very wealthy Ukrainian, and I still want to see that server. You know, the FBI’s never gotten that server. That’s a big part of this whole thing. why did they give it to a Ukrainian company?”

    At this point, Fox News realizes Trump is in big trouble, so Steve Doocy asks, “Are you sure they did that? Are you sure they gave it to Ukraine?”

    Trump, who is about as tuned in as a tree stump, replied, “Well, that’s what the word is, and that’s what I asked actually in my phone call as you know. I mean I asked it very point-blank because we’re looking for corruption. We’re looking for, why should we be giving hundreds of millions of dollars to countries when there’s this kind of corruption?””

    “The president admitted that he used his phone call with the president of Ukraine to try to get a server that doesn’t exist because he is still trying to prove that Russia did not interfere in the 2016 election. Trump withheld military aid to benefit his reelection campaign.”

    More than 50 minutes into Friday’s phone interview, after asking about the president’s health, co-host Brian Kilmeade suggested Trump call into the program every week as a form of “stress relief.” “Joe Biden might not “make it mentally. He’s off.”

    https://www.motherjones.com/politics/2019/11/donald-trump-confessed-again/

    “Trump’s words were revealing. Asked by host Steve Doocy: “Are you sure?” Trump bore down: “Well, that’s what the word is,” the president said. “That’s what I asked, actually in my phone call.” (This refers to Trump’s July 25 call with Ukraine’s President, Volodymyr Zelensky.)

    “I asked it very point-blank, because we’re looking for corruption,” Trump continued. “There’s tremendous corruption. Why should we be giving hundreds of millions of dollars to countries when there’s this kind of corruption. If you look at my call, I said, you know, ‘corruption.’”
    In fact, Trump did not once say the word “corruption” in the reconstructed transcript of his call with Zelensky that the White House released in September. Instead, Trump mentioned the same conspiracy theory. “I would like you to find out what happened with this whole situation with Ukraine,” Trump said. “They say CrowdStrike…I guess you have one of your wealthy people…The server, they say Ukraine has it.””

    I did not watch all the Fox videos above. If anyone else is curious about what is being said in the right extreme check this transcript out. Rush Limbaugh plays the Fox video clips of Trump “venting” then gives his commentary. This is an eye opener for me how people become brainwashed listening to extremists.
    Frankly, it seems the likes of Hannity, Limbaugh and Trump are paranoid delusional.

    For a good laugh read what Limbaugh says to defend Giuliani. https://www.rushlimbaugh.com/daily/2019/11/22/trump-validates-my-ukraine-context-take/

    • Anon November 22, 2019 at 4:53 pm

      I want to add to my comment above that there are som many easily disproveable lies by Trump and Limbaugh that frankly they have no credibility IMO.

    If we really want to see dumbass trump’s head explode, someone should tell him the DNC servers are not in the Ukraine, they are in the cloud !!

    Of course then he will go on that climate change is the fault of the Democrats because they put their servers in the clouds, causing all the bad weather like wet hurricanes.

    OBSESSED.

    ‘He cares about his grievances and his reelection, and that’s it’

    Trump spent the first years of his presidency micromanaging policy moves. These days, his monomaniacal focus is on surviving an existential threat.
