On Thursday, President Donald Trump took shots at his political opponents in his first post-impeachment statements since the Senate acquitted him of articles of impeachments that were originally passed in the House.
“We’ve all been through a lot together. It’s been a very unfair situation,” he said before a cheering crowd.
“We’ve been going through this now for three years. It was evil, it was corrupt, it was dirty cops, it was leakers. It was a disgrace. Had I not fired James Comey, who was a disaster, by the way, it’s possible I wouldn’t even be standing here right now,” he added before shifting the discussion to his accomplishments.
“We’ve done more than any president, any administration, you look at all of the things we’ve done.”
According to a report from The New York Post, Trump predicted that the stock market would have tanked had he not been victorious in the 2016 election.
“That’s all our credit. One of the reasons it’s going up … and one of the reasons the stock market has gone up so much in the last few days is people think we’re doing so well, they liked the State of the Union speech,” Trump remarked while giving his extemporaneous speech.
“This is really not a news conference, it’s not a speech, it’s not anything, it’s just we’re sort of — it’s a celebration because we have something that just worked out. It worked out. We went through hell unfairly. Did nothing wrong. Did nothing wrong,” he said, while holding up a copy of the Washington Post with a banner headline that read, “Trump acquitted.”
“We first went through Russia, Russia, Russia. It was all bullshit,” he continued.
“Little did we know we were running against some very, very bad and evil people with fake dossiers, with all of these horrible, dirty cops that took these dossiers and did bad things. They knew all about it.”
The president’s legal team of Pat Cipollone, Jay Sekulow and Patrick Philbin had front-row seats for the statements. Trump thanked them for their service.
At Trump’s address were a group of Trump loyalists which included Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz, Georgia Congressman Doug Collins, and Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert.
Trump then took Congressman Adam Schiff, the leader of the House’s impeachment efforts, and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to task.
“They made up facts. A corrupt politician named Adam Schiff made up my statement to the Ukrainian president,” he said about Schiff’s sloppy rendition of Trump’s July 25 call to Volodymyr Zelensky, which was the main catalyst behind the impeachment probe after Trump requested that Ukraine investigate Joe Biden.
“Adam Schiff is a vicious, horrible person. Nancy Pelosi is a horrible person, and she wanted to impeach a long time ago when she said, ‘I pray for the president.’ She doesn’t pray. She may pray but she prays for the opposite. But I doubt she prays at all. These are vicious people.”
The Senate acquittal represents Trump’s biggest victory over congressional Democrats.
These are areas where he should be focusing his attention instead of the previous episodes of Kabuki theater like Russiagate and impeachment.

Democrat Congressman Dismisses Low Black Unemployment under Trump
Even with Black unemployment at its lowest rate in nearly 50 years under the Trump administration’s watch, South Carolina Congressman James Clyburn dismissed these numbers.
Clyburn said these numbers are “not true” because Blacks “were fully employed during slavery.” So, “it all depends on how you measure” it, he asserted.
On Fox News’s Your World With Neil Cavuto, host Neil Cavuto chatted with Clyburn about the Trump economy. Clyburn asked whether the president’s policies are beneficial to Black Americans.
“Let’s leave the words aside,” stated Cavuto. “Whether you like his [Trump’s] style or not, or tweets or not, or comments or not, he’s delivered the goods for a lot of African-Americans has he not? With record-low unemployment levels for one group or another. Among Africa-Americans, you don’t think that’s something constructive?”
Clyburn, who voted to impeach Trump back in December, said, “Come on, Neil. No, no, it’s not true. I’m saying that the African-American unemployment is not the lowest it’s ever been unless you count slavery.”
“We were fully employed during slavery,” claimed Clyburn. “So it all depends on how you measure this up.”
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the national unemployment rate for African American workers, 16 years and older, was 5.4% in August 2019. Michael W. Chapman of CNS New said this was the lowest rate in recorded history.
The BLS data for African American begins in 1972, almost 50 years ago. According to a chart that Chapman posted, the unemployment rate numbers from July through December 2019 were in the 5’s range — 5.9, 5.4, 5.5, 5.5, 5.6 and 5.9. In January 2020, the rate was 6.0 percent.
Clearly Democrat elected officials are in denial about Trump’s economic success.
However, if the Trump administration wants to win black votes, it will need to push immigration restriction given how unskilled labor tends to displace black labor.
