This week, President Donald Trump was acquitted of the charges against him in his Senate impeachment trial, and now the Commander-in-Chief is holding a press conference about the situation. Trump was accused of using his position as U.S. president to try and coerce a foreign power into investigating the family of a political rival, but after no new evidence was allowed and no witnesses were allowed to testify, the Senate majority voted to acquit him of the charges. Now, he is speaking out about the trial and its outcome to members of the press.

How long until Donald Trump just blurts out "I did it and I'll do it again and no one can stop me"?— Red (@Redpainter1) February 6, 2020
This is the most insane I have ever seen Trump and I have seen him sh*t himself on a soundstage on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ and make a teenage Ivanka give him a lapdance on ‘Miss Teen USA’ @realDonaldTrump— NoelCaslerComedy (@CaslerNoel) February 6, 2020
I spoke to Paula White, the president’s faith adviser, this week. I asked her if she really believes that Donald Trump is a Christian (she does) and how anyone is supposed to believe that he is. She told me that we can never judge or question another person’s faith. https://t.co/gmWdKSQIO5— Olivia Nuzzi (@Olivianuzzi) February 6, 2020
Why is @CNN and other media outlets even airing @realDonaldTrump this performance...this isn't a new conference it's a campaign speech. Please give "real" presidential candidates the same time. https://t.co/ltIHBZmPnC— responselxi (@wakesettervlx) February 6, 2020

“Adam Schiff is a terrible, vicious person. Nancy Pelosi is a terrible person. These are vicious people, but they stick together like glue.” @realDonaldTrump— Ned Ryun (@nedryun) February 6, 2020
Reminder as you're listening to this: 52 Republican senators not only voted to acquit Donald Trump, but refused even to hear witnesses from his own administration testify as to what he had done....— Susan Glasser (@sbg1) February 6, 2020
.@realDonaldTrump never said what "corruption" got cleaned up on Sept. 11, the day he released Ukraine's aid.
His supporters, including Zeldin, couldn't answer either.
The "reforms" they cite occurred in May and July and were baked into the Pentagon's previous authorization.— Heidi Przybyla (@HeidiNBC) February 6, 2020
What are we watching?? Someone tell me we are not watching Donald Trump, the so-called President of the United States, having an Adderall fueled unhinged psychotic rant on live TV. 😳 #TrumpSpeech— Jules Morgan (@glamelegance) February 6, 2020
You know when your drunk Uncle get’s up to make a toast at a wedding and everyone cringes? That’s all of us now. @realDonaldTrump— NoelCaslerComedy (@CaslerNoel) February 6, 2020
Donald Trump’s day so far:
- Spends National Prayer Breakfast ranting about Romney and Pelosi— Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) February 6, 2020
- Uses White House press conference to yell “bullshit”
- Makes up word “apprenti”
- This guy isn’t emboldened, he’s falling to pieces
- Trump is going to prison
- It’s still only 1pm
Donald Trump: “If this would’ve happened to Obama there’d be a lot of people in jail right now.”
1) This would’ve never happened to Obama because he would’ve never broke the law or abused his power.
2) There are a lot of people in jail right now: Trump’s former campaign aides.— Ryan Knight 🏳️🌈 🗽 (@ProudResister) February 6, 2020
