I exploit the phrase “interview” flippantly right here as a result of what Hannity did in his capability as a “journalist” was one thing wanting asking robust questions of a public determine. It was extra like having just a few beers with an outdated pal who you had been hoping would possibly aid you get a job sooner or later.
1. “Properly, we’re seeing lots of people. We’re seeing quite a lot of good Republicans and quite a lot of good Individuals, in some instances, nice Individuals. And we’re working very onerous.”
What was the query from Hannity that elicited this response? “You had been working as onerous as you probably did whenever you had been within the White Home, besides you play a bit of golf extra, that you just’re retaining an insane schedule, seven days every week. You actually do not cease.” And away we go!
2. “You get impeached for doing nothing improper. Then you definately get a second impeachment for doing nothing improper.”
3. “And I believe we’re — you are going to see one thing that may begin to happen in ’22 and can culminate in ’24.”
Properly, this certain feels like Trump is operating once more, no?
4. “However I had an occasion the place on a slippery, slippery ramp, piece of metal, very steep and really lengthy, no railings, no nothing, and it was pouring at West Level. And the very last thing I wish to do is go down as a result of when Gerald Ford went down, it was not good.”
5. “Properly, Air Drive One is a really large aircraft. And often, what they attempt to do is defend the wind. You realize, once they park it you may flip it in angles and so you do not ever have an excessive amount of. I’ve by no means seen an excessive amount of wind.”
6. “No person was harder on Russia. And albeit, getting together with Vladimir Putin is an efficient factor. And I received together with him very nicely.”
7. “So now one thing’s occurring with Taiwan. One thing possibly is occurring with Ukraine. This by no means was an enormous topic once I was president.”
8. “I’ve an important relationship with a sure man that is received nice energy over North Korea.”
Who may it’s? This recreation is enjoyable!
9. “The Russian hoax was very, very dangerous for the connection that we might have with Russia.”
10. “The wall, getting the wall constructed and the wall we — we’re as much as nearly 500 miles and finishing it was very straightforward.”
11. “The wall is crucial. The entire issues that go together with the wall, the know-how that goes into the wall and with the wall is so crucial.”
So, if I’m studying this proper, the wall — I believe — is crucial?
12. “One different factor, they’re sending us not their greatest folks. They’re sending us those who, in lots of instances, not in all instances, are murderers, drug sellers, human traffickers, and actually dangerous — rapists, actually dangerous folks.”
Sure, Trump actually stated this about Mexico.
13. “Quite simple, extra liberty, extra freedom, of perception within the Structure, decrease taxes, much less paperwork, constitutionalists on the bench. You need safe borders, authorized immigration, power independence. You consider in legislation and order, security and safety for each American. Easy stuff. Faculty alternative.”
This phrase salad is Trump’s reply to what the “Trump agenda” for the longer term appears to be like like. Very reassuring!
14. “So many various issues that — look, we received 75 million votes. It is greater than any sitting president in historical past by far.”
OK, that is the precise transition Trump made. He was speaking (and speaking) in regards to the Trump agenda after which — whammo! — proper into the entire thing about what number of votes he received in 2020. Tremendous regular!
15. “I do not know if you already know, Sean, often in a second time period a president will get much less votes. I received 12 million extra. It is the most important that is ever occurred in historical past, from 63 to 75. By no means occurred earlier than. And all of this stuff are good.”
I, simply, uh, I do not know what to say right here. I will say that I, too, like good issues.
16. “And I do not know if Joe is aware of what is going on on with it, as a result of I believe you’ve gotten a cabal, you’ve gotten a gaggle of individuals which can be sitting round a desk simply saying do that, do that, do that. They’re giving him this stuff to signal. It is onerous to consider.”
OK, so there’s a “cabal” of individuals simply giving a clueless President Biden “issues to signal?” That IS onerous to consider!
17. “We had been imagined to lose 25 seats. I received concerned. I known as 56 totally different districts. And we ended up selecting up 16 as a substitute of shedding 25.”
18. “Lisa Murkowski is a catastrophe. I imply, she’s a complete catastrophe.”
… stated the previous REPUBLICAN President of america.
19. “And I used to be making calls getting congressmen elected.”
Inform me extra about these magical calls …
20. “We have expanded the Republican Occasion.”
21. “However I am at 128 and two once I endorse folks, 128 and two.”
22. “You realize, I reduce taxes greater than any president’s ever reduce taxes.”
23. “We did an important job. We received little or no credit score for the nice job we have finished.”
Donald Trump on his dealing with of the Covid-19 pandemic. Sure, actually.
24. “I am going to offer you a bit of breaking information. Pfizer is in with the FDA. And what the FDA did with Johnson & Johnson is so silly.”
25. “I stated, they need me to do a industrial, some industrial. And so they do that pause.”
26. “You realize, I will be appreciated by all people. However I will not be doing a great job.”
Necessary observe: Trump is not president.
27. “I believe it’s totally suspect is what they did with Johnson & Johnson, as a result of the one folks which can be pleased about which can be Pfizer and Moderna. The one folks which can be pleased about that as a result of what they did is a horrible, horrible factor.”
Trump is suggesting — with zero proof — that Pfizer and Moderna are in some way liable for the pause within the J&J vaccine. Man, this conspiracy goes deeper than I even thought!
28. “I let you know that a minimum of eight senators would have misplaced their race. I may identify them however I do not wish to embarrass them however that features Mitch, who’s heading south.”
29. “And I am very talked-about in Kentucky. I really like Kentucky. And so they love me.”
30. “Look, nearly all people I endorse wins.”
31. “However you already know what, I really like doing it as a result of I assist folks. And I’ve helped them greater than any president with the chopping of taxes, with the rules, with proper to attempt.”
Trump on what he liked in regards to the White Home. You owe him, America! Bigly.
32. “And I’ve added one thing known as House Drive. It’ll be so highly effective, so vital.”
33. “I received large numbers. No person has ever gotten the numbers I received. No sitting president has come even shut. There’s extra recognition now than there was the day earlier than the election as a result of they see how dangerous issues are on the border.”
That is Trump’s reply as to whether he’s operating once more in 2024. I like this as his slogan for that race: “I received large numbers. No person has ever gotten the numbers I received.” It may work!
34. “I received alongside nice with President Putin. I appreciated him. He appreciated me. That is a great factor, not a foul factor.”
35. “Getting together with Russia is an efficient factor. Getting together with these nations is an efficient factor, not a foul factor.”
Yeah, this seems like a great place to finish.
