Crowd At Trump Rally Chant ‘Bulls**t!’ When President Addresses Impeachment
Trump's 'homecoming' rally in Florida begins with a bang
Trump addressed the crowd highlighting the Democrat's ongoing impeachment efforts.
“The radical left Democrats are trying to rip our nation apart,” Trump said to a chorus of boos from the crowd.
“First, it was the Russia hoax,” the president stated.
“Total hoax. It was a failed overthrow attempt and the biggest fraud in the history of our country," the president added.
"Then the Mueller deal. You remember that mess. They had nothing. Two years. They spent $45 million, and the real cost is many times that number.”
Then Trump turned to the subject of impeachment:
"Now the same maniacs are pushing the deranged impeachment. Think of this. Impeachment. A witch hunt. The same as before," he declared.
"They’re pushing that impeachment witch hunt. A lot of bad things are happening to them. You see what’s happening in the polls? Everybody said, that’s really bulls**t.”
Bellowing chants then began ringing out from the crowd responded by shouting, “Bulls**t! Bulls**t! Bulls**t! Bulls**t!”
Trump referred to Tuesday’s rally as his “homecoming” due to the fact it was the first one he held in Florida after giving up his permanent residence in New York City.

On Tuesday, the first House Democrat publicly opposed the party's impeachment efforts against Trump, stating she would ask her caucus to censure rather than remove him from office.
Rep. Brenda Lawrence of Michigan said:
"We are so close to an election. I will tell you, sitting here knowing how divided this country is, I don't see the value of taking him out of office."
"I do see the value of putting down a marker saying his behavior is not acceptable."
On Monday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff's congressional challenger, Jennifer Barbosa, said he is wasting federal funds trying to impeach Trump while ignoring his state's homelessness crisis.
Speaking with "Fox & Friends" on Monday, Barbosa claimed that Schiff had not passed any legislation since 2012, adding that his only contribution to fighting homelessness was signing on with Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., rather than offer an original idea.
"Adam Schiff has been my congressman since 2012," Barbosa said.
"He became my congressman through the redistricting process," she added.
