Trump called Rep. Al Green’s attempt to immediately impeach him “a big waste of time” after the Dem-majority House overwhelmingly shot it down.

President Donald Trump said Friday that he doesn’t plan to watch former special counsel Robert Mueller’s testimony, a long-awaited affair for House Democrats who have pushed Mueller to publicly answer questions about his Russia investigation.
“At some point they have to stop playing games,” Trump told reporters in front of the White House. “They’re just playing games. You know, I won’t be watching Mueller.”
Trump is going to be glued to his TV during that testimony and everybody knows it.
It is unlikely that Mueller will say anything that is not already in the report, but it will be extremely powerful to hear him say it in person and of course it will be replayed by cable news outlets for days afterward.
There is as much chance of Trump skippping this testimony as there is of him skipping a chance to insult a minority.
