President Donald Trump is still ranting that he won the election less than 48 hours before he leaves office, according to reporting from The New York Times.
He also called House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy a ‘p***y’ because McCarthy didn’t keep the Republican caucus together, The Times said.
Ten House Republicans voted with Democrats to impeach Trump for a second time last week.
President Donald Trump is still ranting that he won the 2020 presidential election, with under 48 hours to go of his term. He also called one of his top allies on Capitol Hill, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a ‘p***y because 10 of McCarthy’s members voted for impeachment
Trump didn’t like House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s floor speech Wednesday, which directed some of the blame for the Capitol riot on the president. Still, McCarthy objected to impeachment, but Trump doesn’t seem to care
A moving truck was spotted outside of President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort on Monday, as the president is reportedly still boasting to allies that he won the 2020 presidential election
The Times’ Maggie Haberman reported Monday that Trump had expressed dissatisfaction with McCarthy’s floor speech Wednesday, believing that the California Republican had bowed to pressure.
Trump didn’t seem to care that McCarthy actually came out against impeachment during his floor speech.
‘A vote to impeach would further divide this nation. A vote to impeach will further fan the flames of partisan division,’ McCarthy argued.
But he also placed blame on Trump for the January 6 siege on the Capitol Building.
‘That doesn’t mean the president is free from fault. The president bears bears responsibility for Wednesday’s attack on Congress by mob rioters. He should have immediately denounced the mob when he saw what was unfolding,’ McCarthy said.
‘These facts require immediate action by President Trump, accept his share of responsibility, quell the brewing unrest and ensure President elect Biden is able to successfully begin his term,’ McCarthy also advised.
When Trump was impeached the first time, in December 2019, he would often boast that no Republicans joined the effort – and several Democrats voted against it.
The opposite was true during Wednesday’s vote, with 10 Republicans voting with every Democrat in the House to impeach.
The article of impeachment blamed Trump for inciting the January 6 insurrection.
Trump has been banished from Twitter since, so he’s unable to directly attack anyone he now considers an enemy.
Besides McCarthy, who’s long been a Trump loyalist, the president also called Vice President Mike Pence a ‘p***y’ for refusing to overturn the Electoral College results.
Pence didn’t have the Constitutional power to do so.
The day after the MAGA riot, Trump filmed a video saying that a ‘new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th’ – the closest the president got to a concession speech.
Trump is making the unprecedented move of skipping Biden’s inauguration.
The two men are not set to meet, nor will Trump participate in any parts of the inauguration festivities.
Trump will leave Washinton, D.C. and arrive in West Palm Beach, Florida before President-elect Joe Biden is sworn-in at noon Wednesday.
First lady Melania Trump released a ‘farewell message’ on Monday.
She also refused to give incoming first lady Jill Biden a tour of the White House residence, which is a tradition.
