In a major interview that aired prior to the Super Bowl on Sunday, President Donald Trump sat down with Sean Hannity to discuss the state of the impeachment investigation, the state of the Democratic presidential primaries, and the forthcoming State of the Union address. As usual, Trump pulled no punches, and he started with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“I think she’s a very confused, very nervous woman,” Trump said of Pelosi. “I don’t think she wanted to do this. I think she really knew what was going to happen, and her worst nightmare has happened. I don’t think she’s gonna be there too long, either. I think that the radical left — and she’s sort of radical left too, by the way — but I think the radical left is gonna take over.”
Trump said that the personal and professional costs of the Democrat-led witch hunts have been incalculable.
“Well, it’s been very unfair,” he said. “From the day I won … from the day I came down from the escalator. … it probably started from there. It’s been a very, very unfair process. The Mueller Report, Russia, Russia, Russia, as you say, which was total nonsense — it was all nonsense, the whole thing. It was very unfair, and mostly it was unfair to my family. I mean, my family suffered because of all this. And many other families suffered also.”
Later in the interview, Hannity directed the president’s attention to the 2020 race and the Democrats currently running for the nomination. The Fox News host asked Trump what he thought of Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire New Yorker who recently surged in national polls.
“Uh, very little. I just think of little,” Trump said. “You know, now he wants a box for the debates to stand on. OK, it’s OK, there’s nothing wrong. You can be short. Why should he get a box to stand on, OK? He wants a box for the debates. Why should he be entitled to that? Really. Does that mean everyone else gets a box? I would love to run against Bloomberg.”
Hannity asked about Joe Biden, who was once seen as the president’s most likely contender.
“I just think of ‘Sleepy,’” said Trump. “I just watch him. He’s sleepy. Sleepy Joe.”
What about Bernie Sanders, who has been gaining steam?
“Well, I think he’s a communist,” he said. “I mean, you know, look, I think of communism when I think of Bernie. You could say ‘socialist.’ Didn’t he get married in Moscow?
“At least,” Trump continued, “he’s true to what he believes.”
Trump then segued to Elizabeth Warren: “She’s not true to it. I call her ‘fairy tale.’ Because everything’s a fairy tale. That’s how Pocahontas got started. This woman can’t tell the truth.”
One thing was certain from watching the interview: This man is not even slightly concerned about the competition he’ll be facing in the general election. Despite facing down the entire mainstream media and the left-wing political machine, he knows he has this one in the bag.
We can only pray that his confidence is not misplaced.
